  • This is a fake review. Very bad vehicle. Very good vehicle. I just tried to see if other reviews are real. So anybody can write anything about any vehicle in zigwheel. My real review... From what I saw in showroom I think bs6 activa 125 deserves 4.5/5. They have introduced lot of real features including fuel injection.. Half mark I reduce because black color is not available maybe deliberately because it sells well. So will be waiting for 6g

  • I am very happy with Activa 125 BS6 2021. Ye good looking ke saath best features bhi deti hai jese side stand se engine cut off aur digital metro aur fuel kmpl aur average show karta hai. Disc brake to or bhi kamaal ka hai. Mileage to mujhe 49.5 tak mil raha hai.

  • Comfortable ride. The shock absorbers should have been improvised and the Boot space should have been increased. Apart from these both, a perfect scooty with all latest features.
