Honda Activa 125 BS4 Overview

The Honda Activa 125 has always attracted customers who want a little more power in the tried and trusted design of the Honda Activa. The scooter gets a host of features such as LED pilot lamps, alloy wheels and a mobile charging socket. Powering the Activa 125 is 124.9cc single-cylinder engine, which produces 8.6PS of power at 6500rpm and 10.54Nm of torque at 5000rpm. Braking duties are still handled by the same drum units on both sides. The top-spec Deluxe variant, however, gets a 190mm disc up front, with CBS (Combi Brake System) as standard. It competes against the Suzuki Access 125 and the Mahindra Gusto 125.

Q. Which is better between Activa 5g or Activa 125?
  • There are many differences between Activa 5G vs Activa 125 both cosmetic as well as functional: Engine: Activa 5G comes with 109 cc engine whereas Activa 125 has 125 cc engine. Suspension: Activa 5G comes with Spring loaded hydraulic suspension whereas Activa 125 has front telescopic suspension. Tyres: Activa 5G has 10 inches alloy wheels whereas Activa 125 has 12 inches . Benefits: As Activa 125 has Telescopic suspension which means that the ride is very comfortable and more engine cc means more power . But a downside of more power is less mileage.

  • Best is to go with N-torq in the similar price range. My family is loyal to Honda so we have Grazia, Activa, Aviator. Now, i use these 2 vehicles on regular basis - Duke 390 and N-torq. SR150 which my brother uses. To be honest... I think SR150 is best but it is highly overpriced... Now lets come to the price section where activa belongs... So, after riding its all siblings... The best one is N-torq which is a TVS brand. I was a Honda loyal customer just like my family but N-torq is way better in every aspect so i had to move to N-torq. I would advice you the same to go with N-torq. It is the best choice.. You better take a test ride of all the three vehicles then purchase which one you feel best comfortable with..
  • Depends on you brother, if you want to spent less money and more mileage, you can buy activa 5g/6g, but if you have no budget problem, than you can buy activa 125, although they both have same mileage, but activa 125 has better performance, better comfort, better braking power and a powerful engine with great pickup, and no problems in winter, while activa 5g/6g has problem with engine in winter

Q. Which scooter is best for long rides?
  • For long rides Honda Activa or Suzuki Access 125 or TVS Jupiter is suitable.They are more or less similar to each other in ride, handling,balance,stability and freedom from vibrations.But the speeds have to be in the range of about 60-75kmph.Basically it is your personal choice.
  • I have Riding the activa 125 for a long time , i don't use it for touring because I use my enfields for it but u don't thing the activa will be good for a long ride , but there won't be any problems on the comfort side of scooter but for touring i will suggest you to go for the aprila rs series , or wait for the launch of yamaha Nmax it will be within the end of this year .....
  • Activaah... Because of more cubic capacity... i.e. 125 with BS6....

Q. Which scooter is best TVS Ntorq 125 or Activa 125?
  • Activate 125 and Ntorq cannot be compared as the two belong to two different segments. The former is an ideal family scooter with a good dose of comfort. Ntorq is for outright performance (that doesn't mean it's not comfortable). Also note that the wheels and tyres are totally different on Ntorq, they much resemble those of an Apache. If for some reason you cannot buy a 125-150 cc motorcycle, buy an Ntorq. You\ll never regret your decision. I have regularly done group tours when my friends were riding Pulsars, Apaches plus two RE Classic 350s. My Ntorq never lagged behind though it is a mere scooter.
  • In case of power activa can never reach with ntorq because it has a lot more power than the activaActiva will provide a little more Mileage but not at a big gap only a little ntorq has a lot of mileage while looking its distribution of power and perfomence that any other scootters dont have.Durability and comfort is good for both of them but in case of comfort the digital cluster,larger mirrors that apache have.... And a lot more.. It cannot be said throgh words we can only feel it through the ride..... I will suggest Ntorq in case of comfort.
  • Editing my review, after running 3700km & around 8 months i would prefer Activa 125 over TV's ntorq because only engine is plus point else nothing whole body is plastic/fibre & floor has no support underneath not even pipe frame & plastic sounds..... some kind of rattling noise always come. Activa 125 only handle plastic is noisy else ok.

    Kick stop working with in 1 month !!!! It will never start in the morning time without 4-5 kicks without choke. No question it will start with self start . For using kick you have to use main stand - for girls ladies n below 20 years age boy too I want to ask can you do it by yourself . Is it easy to use the kick !!!! Again issue for refueling you have to open the seat !!!! Features 0 no charging point . Plastic materials quality 0 . Aftersales service for jhajjar showroom n services -10. We bought this scooty for my sister and believe my in last 10 months she drove only 100 km . Max 2600 km driven by me. Refueling should be easy like Mahindra duraFeatures like how many km more we can drive should be there.Charging point with mobile holderEasy to kick Light in weight Enough space for helmet For enivorment also they should do somethingShould give a eco- friendly bag with scooty so for daily shopping people can avoid use of polythene

    Activa was the popular commuter who helped ladies out of buses gave them sense of pride and freedom to use it to the office and back pick your child also used by their husbands. its powerful enough with 125 cc bs6 engine 8.6ps of power now using hondas combi brake system which increase stopping power with stability. augmented by disc brakes tubeless tyres alloy wheels led front light aluminium frame mobile charger beneath seats descent mileage around 50 to 55 km/litre.with whooping price of approx Rs85000otr on many cities!!!now starts only when you unmount the side stands. thanks

    I bought this activa 125 because of its style, features, braking, performance, suspension but i am very unsatisfied with its milage-- around 30kmph only, maintenance-- it requires very frequently but a good thing is that"s not mush expensive, and Very disappointed with its vibrations problem-- it stated shaking just after few months which becomes too noisy its head and other parts starts vibrating

    I've been riding the 125 past 2 years. from that experience I would like to tell that it's not so bad also not so good too. Pick up is average. For me the Moonlight Blue color is off the edge than any other scooty of this range. Comfort wise also it is good. Overall it's a nice scooter for daily commuter with a little bit more power than 110 CC

    This mopped had a good performance, beautiful looks,its so smooth on driving and it gets a very high mileage of 1L/60km and maintenance compared with other vehicle of all mopped companies on our country India,that it can"t compete with activa because it is overall a very good mopped (scooter) than all other companies brand (scooter)
