The newly launched Premium Edition comes with a few upmarket touches while keeping the basics intact. We take a closer look

Honda recently gave the Activa 125 a much-needed shot in the arm by launching the Activa 125 Premium Edition in the country. If you’re wondering how it is different from the standard variants, you’ve come to the right place. 

Snazzier Looks:

The Honda Activa 125 Premium Edition is offered in two colour options: Pearl Amazing White with Matte Magnificent Copper Metallic and Matte Steel Black Metallic with Matte Earl Silver Metallic. The white and copper dual-tone variant does look premium and will get your attention, whereas the black and silver-coloured variant is more elegant. They get subtle pinstripes on the apron, front fender, and side panels, along with ‘Premium’ logos on the side panels. The powertrain and front fork are finished in black. Topping the design off is the colour-coded grab handle (copper in the white-coloured variant and light grey in the black one).

On the other hand, the standard variant is offered in four shades: Rebel Red Metallic, Heavy Grey Metallic, Pearl Night Star Black, and Strontium Silver Metallic. All these are monotone shades, and they come with a silver finish on the suspension, powertrain, and grab handle. 

Comes In Two Variants:

The Honda Activa 125 Premium Edition is offered in two variants: drum brake and disk-equipped. Take a look at the ex-showroom Delhi prices and their comparison with the standard models:

Honda Activa 125 Variants

Honda Activa 125 Premium Edition

Honda Activa 125


Drum brakes with steel wheels


Rs 73,203


Drum brakes with alloys

Rs 78,725

Rs 76,771

Rs 1,954

Front disc with alloys

Rs 82,280

Rs 80,325

Rs 1,955

The front disc brake variant gets a 190mm front disc and a 130mm rear drum, whereas the drum brake variants get a 130mm drum at both ends. These aside, all the scooters have the same mechanicals and features. Speaking of which...

No Feature Or Mechanical Updates:

The Honda Activa 125 Premium Edition retains all the standard model's basic mechanical bits and features. Notable features include an all-LED headlamp, a semi-digital instrument cluster with distance-to-empty, average and real-time mileage indicator, a speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer and tripmeter, clock, and telltale lights. All the variants get Idling Stop System with silent starter, apron-mounted underseat storage switch, utility hook below the seat,  side-stand engine cut-off feature, external fuel tank cap, apron-mounted glove box, and a reasonably sized underseat storage. 

We wish Honda had equipped the scooter with smartphone connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation, at least for the Premium Edition variant, considering the segment bestseller, the Suzuki Access 125, gets one. Overall, the Premium Edition is a welcome addition to the Activa, but the Rs 2000 premium feels a little too much for merely new colour schemes.
