Honda India has launched an all-new variant of Activa, which will be sold as Activa-i. It was expected to be a 125cc scooter but actually it is a low-end variant of Activa and is powered by the same 110cc engine which also power the Activa, Aviator and Dio. Honda recently upgraded this engine to improve the reliability and fuel efficiency. Though Honda claims that the Honda Activa-i is a unisex scooter, there is a hint of feminism around the restyled fibre body. Honda also offers the Honda Activa-i with Combi Brake System (CBS), which offers better braking on the two drum brakes. Other features include tubeless tyres, a maintenance free battery along with an 18-litres storage area under the seat which is enough for a full face helmet. The Activa-i has a comfortable and upright riding position which is good for daily commuting.
The suspension system of Honda Activa-i has been specially designed keeping in mind the Indian road conditions. It features spring loaded hydraulic suspension both front and rear. The braking system is also very effective with 130mm drums at front and rear. Honda Activa 3G is available in four eye-catching shades: Alpha red metallic, Purple metallic, Pearl sunbeam white and Beige metallic. The Honda Activa-i is rivals the other 110cc scooters like the TVS Jupiter, Hero Maestro, Mahindra Gusto and the TVS Wego.
