Powering the Activa 125 is a new fuel-injected motor. With a focus on getting emission levels down, the motor’s performance seems to have taken a back seat. The new motor now makes 8.29PS at a lower 6000rpm compared to the previous scooter's motor that delivered 8.63PS at 6500rpm. However, with the start-stop tech and fuel-injection, Honda claims a 13 percent improvement in fuel efficiency. It gets the same CVT transmission as before.
The new Activa 125 carries the same underpinnings as the previous generation Activa 125. It gets telescopic forks and a monoshock. Braking is via a front disc and rear drum with Combined Braking System as standard.
The new Honda Activa 125 is available in 3 variants: Std, Alloy and Deluxe. The Standard variant gets drum brakes and steel pressed wheels. Its higher Alloy variant gets drum brakes and alloy wheels and features like side stand engine kill switch and range and fuel efficiency calculator. The top spec Deluxe variant gets all the features of the Alloy variant plus a front disc brake and start stop system. The Activa 125 commands a premium of Rs 6,863 over the previous Activa 125’s price tag of Rs 60627, (ex.showroom Delhi, Std drum brake variant). The new Activa 125 will compete against the Hero Maestro Edge 125 and Suzuki Access 125.
