The Honda Activa 3G is the latest iteration of the most popular automatic scooter in India. Can the new scooter live up to the legacy of its predecessor? We get you the answer
The Honda Navi has come in as a trendy option for the youngsters buying their first two-wheelers. But, at a similar price, where does it stand against the established scooters like the Honda Activa?
The new Honda Activa builds on what was already the best-seller in the scooter segment in India. ZigWheels takes the new Activa for a spin...
In terms of styling, the new Honda Activa 4G is reminiscent of its predecessor. The design language of the Activa 4G is simple and one can also say that it has been the design template for most scooters on sale in India. The neutral lines of the scooter are a deliberate effort by Honda designers to make the scooter appeal to the masses. The scooter features handlebar-mounted headlamp with the turn indicators integrated into it. The slightly raked front apron is simple looking, with faux air vents. The rear section sports an attractive tail lamp that does gel nicely with the rear unit and one can see the ‘4G’ badge on the rear body panel. The 110cc scooter carries forward the same analogue unit as its predecessor, consisting of speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge and tell-tale lights. The new Honda Activa 4G finally gets mobile charger as an optional extra.
Powering the Honda Activa 4G is an air-cooled, 110cc, single-cylinder engine which is now BS-IV-compliant. The motor develops 8PS of power and 9Nm of torque. Honda claims a mileage figure of 60kmpl and top speed of 83kmph for its highest selling scooter globally. The scooter employs an underbone chassis which is suspended on trailing link suspension at the front while a monoshock unit does duty at the rear. Braking is done by drum brakes on both ends while a disc brake isn’t offered even as an option. The Honda Activa also features Combi Brake System (CBS) and tubeless tyres. The scooter rides on 10-inch steel wheels shod with 90/100 section tyres. The Honda Activa has a 5.3-litre fuel tank and weighs 108kg.
TVS Jupiter: The TVS Jupiter is the Honda Activa’s biggest rival. Segment-first features have made the Jupiter a popular alternative to the Activa. The frugal engine, comfortable ride quality and the fact that it is cheaper than the Activa despite offering much more, makes it our pick as the best 110cc scooter on sale.
Hero Maestro Edge: The Hero Maestro Edge is the first scooter to be indigenously designed and developed by Hero. The Maestro Edge does make a style statement with its sharp styling and striking graphics. The Hero scooter also gets features like external fuel filler cap, mobile charger, LED tail light, alloy wheels and benefits from Hero’s humongous dealership network.
Yamaha Alpha: The Yamaha Alpha is the second scooter offering from the Japanese brand after the Ray range of scooters. The Yamaha scooter offers a great mix of style and reliability and is among the lightest scooters in its segment at just 104kg. Priced at a premium, the Alpha does manage to stand apart from its rivals.
The Honda Activa 4G is the highest selling two-wheeler in India and is the undisputed king of the scooter segment. It still remains a safe bet with respect to reliability, refinement and mileage, though we would love to see more features like external fuel filler cap, pass light switch, telescopic front forks and alloy wheels.
Honda Activa 4G is available in 7 Colours :
Pearl Amazing White
Matte Selene Silver Metallic
Imperial Red Metallic
Majestic Brown Metallic
Matte Axis Grey Metallic
Trance Blue Metallic
Butter smooth engine, Great resale value, Very good mileage
Design needs an update, No telescopic front forks, Lacks features in comparison to competition
The Honda Activa remains the undisputed scooter king of India. The addition of mobile charging socket on the new Activa 4G is welcome but we expected better styling and more features as part of the update.
