Honda has launched the third generation model of its most consumed scooter- Activa . The scooter was introduced in Indian more than a decade ago and today it is claimed to be the most consumed and celebrated scooter of the nation. It is still powered by the same engine and remains to be the king of hearts in India. Honda Activa 3G with its immense goodwill is offered at a competitive price. There are so many competitors yet Activa remains at the top because of its strong roots.
Honda Activa houses a 109.2cc, air-cooled, 4-stroke, SI engine. The motor is designed to churn out a maximum power of 8bhp and a peak torque of 8.83Nm. The scooter claims a mileage of around 60kmpl that helps it impress more people. The mileaeg is assisted with a fuel tank capacity of 5.3 liter.
With a kerb weight of just 108kg, the scooter remains friendly for all types of people. Honda Activa has been designed to cater every type of people whether tall or short, etc. The seat height of the scooter is also very low, i.e., 765mm with a minimum ground clearance of 153mm and wheelbase of 1238mm.
The design of Honda Activa 3G is truly a marvel. It has been made keeping the comforts and ease of the riders as the top-most priority. Starting with the front, the flat and spacious foot-board paired with a well-cushioned and large seat allows even the tallest of drivers to sit quite comfortably without having to bend their legs even in the slightest. Plus, the perfect height of handlebars and rider-seat in combination with an easily reachable handle ensures that the driver is able to maintain quite an upright and relaxed posture all the time and does not have to experience any kind of stress or difficulties even while driving through a bumpy road. Talking about tackling the difficult Indian streets, the Activa is fully armed to do that. Carved out of a tough metal instead of a flimsy plastic material, the body of this Honda scooter can take on a road in even the most terrible of conditions giving a smooth and fun drive to its riders and a longer lifetime to the scooter.
Engine And Performance
The original model of Honda Activa 3G rolled out in 2000 was fueled by a 102cc four stroke engine that was upgraded to a 109 cc version in the 2009 revamp. Now capable of churning out a peak 7.89bhp at 7500rpm for a maximum of 8.82Nm torque produced at 5500rpm, this air-cooled, 4-stroke, single-cylinder OHC engine does not compromise on the fuel-economy for an enhanced power output. On the contrary, the new Activa mill delivers a straight 15% increase in mileage as compared to its predecessor. To work in harmony with this brilliant motor, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have employed a V-matic transmission mechanism, a Viscous paper air filter to reduce the maintenance demands and a proficient suspension system. The suspension system is composed of a Bottom Link mechanism for the front wheel and a Unit Swing mechanism for the rear wheel both coupled to a Spring Loaded Hydraulic Damper for better absorption of pothole jerks.
Braking And Handling
The braking mechanism forms a vital part of every vehicle be it a scooter, a motorcycle, car or anything for that matter. The safety of the passengers of a vehicle relies first and foremost on a sound braking system and that is what makes it the top concern for vehicle designers. Keeping the same in mind, Honda have blessed their flagship scooter with a new and more promising braking technology that was developed in the factory of Honda itself. Named as Combi Brakes or Combination Brakes, this technology combines the front and the rear brakes into a single unit so that both can be applied together by pressing a single lever, thereby reducing the braking distance and increasing the safety levels.
When it comes to safety, Honda never takes chances. The newly devised technique of Combi Brakes is the biggest proof of that. Besides providing an advanced and improved braking mechanism, the Honda designers have added a set of 90/100 – 10 inch tyres for the front and rear wheels that provide a good road grip to assist in efficient braking. And no ordinary tyres they are. Fitted with Tuff-Up tubes, these tyres are simply not made to get flat. Even if a nail penetrates the tube, it won't be able to flatten the tyre owing to the anti-puncture sealant gel that oozes out and solidifies to seal the gap around the nail thereby sealing the hole. With that, Honda has reduced the risk of a flat tyre in Activa by an impressive 70%.
Good looks, neutral handling, tuff-up tubes and sturdy build.
Long waiting periods and no central locking system.
