Great option. But can be better

Honda claims to have given a cosmetic makeover for the Activa 3G. Yet, in a glance, the new scooter looks exactly similar to its predecessor. Look closely and you will realise that the front fascia has been tweaked mildly with a restyled and larger faux vents. Also the handlebar mounted headlamp and turn indicators have been given minor updates. It seems to be a deliberate strategy of the Honda designers to maintain the typical “Activa face” on the new scooter as the basic design DNA has been left untouched. The most striking visual difference between both the generations of Activa can be made from the rear.
The Honda Activa 3G continues to be powered by the tried and tested 110cc motor as seen on its predecessor. The air-cooled, single-cylinder mill churns out 8PS of maximum torque and 8.8Nm of torque. The Honda Activa 3G is a peppy scooter and has good acceleration owing to a strong bottom end. The scooter can cruise at speeds around 60kmph without any effort but feels strained once the dial crosses 70kmph. Another aspect of the Honda engine is its brilliant refinement. Riding posture on the Honda Activa 3G is upright and comfortable with decent footboard space. Pillion comfort is also nice owing to the aptly cushioned seats and chunky grab handle.The Activa 3G is quick on its feet and changes directions with aplomb so that the rider can squeeze out through the tightest of gaps. Braking is done via drum brake at front and rear while CBS (combi brake system) is standard. The drum brake setup do a good job in shedding speeds and also provide decent feedback. Ride quality is one aspect where the Activa needed improvement. Sadly, the Activa 3G doesn’t address this issue. The new scooter from Honda still employs a trailing link suspension at front which results in the handle bar juddering every time one rides over broken roads and telescopic front forks should have been added.
Overall, the Honda Activa 3G still remains a good 110cc scooter option. The brilliantly refined engine, impressive fuel efficiency and nimble handling make it a great option as a city commuter. But with competition stepping up the game, we expected the Honda Activa 3G to be loaded with new features, more design flair and better cycle parts.
