2. Engine Immobiliser- Anti-Theft Safety Notched Up

This is a neat upgrade in safety features that Honda has provided with the new variants. The engine immobilizer is nothing new, but integrating it into the Activa is definitely a welcome move. Just for the record, Engine Immobiliser is an electronic security device, when equipped, simply cuts off the engine when someone tries to start the scooter with any other key than the one used to lock it. In simpler terms, the engine immobilizer prevents the engine from starting in the absence of the vehicles authentic and authorized keys.

3. Honda Activa With Alloy Wheels - A little Tweak

Now you do get a 13-inch alloy wheel set-up for your Activa. This is a nice addition considering some rivals already offer them. This imparts a new refreshed scent to the already hit and accepted design of the Honda's 2-wheeler. The tyres are also upgraded and as per Honda, it reduces road friction and offers better mileage numbers.

4. No Change In Engine And Still Looks The Same
