Honda Activa 5G Pros and Cons

Activa 5G Positives Points: Refined engine, good fuel efficiency, metal body

Activa 5G Negatives Points: Lacks features like external fuel filler cap and USB charger, price is high compared to rivals, no telescopic fork or disc brake option

Zigwheels Expert's Conclusion : The Honda Activa may be one of the most trusted two-wheelers in the scooter space, however, the new breed of scooters seem to outmatch and outpace the vehicle. Yes, the Activa 5G does almost everything right, but the lack of features and design updates over the years have eaten into its appeal. That said, Honda now has the Activa 6G, which takes features and technology to the next level, and should help it retain its position as the best selling scooter in the Indian market.

A Reliable Companion

The Honda Activa 5G has been my trusted two-wheeler companion for a considerable amount of time, and I would like to share my insights on this scooter. While it boasts several commendable features, I must admit that the fuel efficiency leaves something to be desired, averaging around 25-30 kilometres per litre. Design: the Active 5G's design is a harmonious blend of form and function. Its sleek lines, refined contours, and well-thought-out ergonomics ensure a comfortable and stylish ride. The scooter's build quality reflects Honda's commitment to durability, offering peace of mind to owners. Performance: in terms of performance, Activa 5G shines in urban environments. Its peppy engine delivers adequate power for city commuting, allowing for quick manoeuvring through traffic. The scooter's suspension system effectively absorbs road imperfections, ensuring a smooth ride. Mileage: one of the notable drawbacks of the Activa 5G is its fuel efficiency. While it's expected that a scooter's mileage may vary based on usage and conditions, the 25-30 kilometres per litre range falls somewhat short of expectations. For those who prioritize fuel economy, This could be a point of concern. Features: It comes equipped with a range of features that enhance the overall riding experience. Its all-led headlamp provides excellent visibility during night rides, and the generous under-seat storage offers practicality for daily errands. Additionally, the scooter's combi brake system (CBS) enhances safety by distributing braking force evenly between the front and rear wheels. Conclusion: in conclusion, it is a reliable and stylish urban scooter with a few trade-offs. Its design, performance, and feature set make it a worthy choice for city commuting. However, the relatively lower mileage may deter those seeking the utmost fuel efficiency. If you can overlook this aspect, it remains a dependable choice for navigating the urban jungle. Pros:1. Stylish and ergonomic design. 2. Smooth and comfortable ride. 3. Impressive feature set, including led headlamp and CBS. 4. Honda's reputation for durability and reliability. Cons: 1. Lower-than-expected mileage (25-30 km/l). 2. May is not ideal for long-distance travel. 3. Price points may be a bit high compared to some competitors.

Riding rashly

3.8

Watched tons of reviews before buying activa 5g.Finally after my research purchased it on 29/12/19.But reviewing this today i.E, 24/11/21.Done 15k on odometer with all the free services done, I'm getting an average of about 50 kmpl consistently.Actually i have been getting this average after 1st servicing.Pros: performance: enough pick-up to surpass traffic.Can easily touch 60 kmph but struggles from then but nothing to complain as its a scooter.Mileage: easily 50 kmph if driven economically else 40 in the worst casebuild quality: its a honda product so no complains regarding build quality.Engine reliability & vibrations(if any): honda is among the best in the industry in engine production.Be it engine reliability or vibrations.You do feel vibes after crossing 60 kmph but how many rides a scooter in that speed? features: there are no features as such as its a 3 year old product.After sales service: it has been very good at the moment but a little expensive when compared to hero or even tvs for that matters but overall its fine.Let downs: fuel tank accessibilityfront suspension: as its a hydraulic unit, It reduces comfort by miles.Honda could have gone with telescopic forks for better comfort.Yes now they have added them in 6g but they could have done it earlier.Oem fitted tyres: maxxis tyres got fitted in my bike which are very bad.In the 1st month of my purchase i had a puncture.That doesn't mean i was riding rashly.Till now had 6 punctures(4 in the rear, 2 in the front).Anyhow gonna change the tyres soon.

Its an allround two wheeler

Its an all-round two wheeler that is to the likes of everyone whether be it the youngsters, Women or the elderly.Its best thing is the sweet, Smooth and a quite engine.The engine is very refined, The best in class in its category of two wheelers, With no vibrations felt and least noise considerably reducing riding fatigue.U can easily feel the difference if you ride any other scooter after riding the activa.As for braking, Its quite good and reassuring even with drum brakes.The bite from brake shoes is strong and the overall vehicle dynamics good enough to bring the scoot to a safe and quick halt without loosing composure even from high speeds.However everything is not good here, The area where the activa lags is the ride quality, Which is real nightmare if you have to move on broken and rough roads, The scoot is really going to rattle you.This is due to its meeker front end suspension and a stiff rear suspension set--up.The front suspension has a trail of only about 7cm, Out of which only 3 to 4 cm is available to taken on the sudden pothole or breaker impact.If the trail was about 9cm or more and wheelbase was slightly longer with a softer rear suspension, The things would have been much better, If honda could consider it.Another thing is styling, Which obviously is a matter of personal taste, Is rather conservative, Very unlike its elder siblings from kinetic-honda two decades back, Which were a real looker with striking and contemporary designs of its times.

Round scooter

Its an all-round scooter which is liked by everyone, Whether be it youngsters, Women or the elderly.The best thing about the scooter is its refined and relatively silent engine.There are no vibrations felt to the rider due to its smooth engine, Which considerably reduces the riding fatigue.You can feel this difference if ride any other scooter after riding the activa.As for braking, Its very reassuring and confidence inspiring, Even with the drum brakes.The bite from the drums is strong, And the vehicle dynamics good enough to bring the scoot to a safe and quick halt even from high speeds, Without losing any composure.However everything is not good here, The ride quality is terrible if you have to move over broken and rough roads, The scoot is really going to rattle you.This is due to its stiff rear and a meeker front suspension with only a trail of around 6.5 cm, Out of which only 3 to 4 cm is available to take on the impact of a sudden pothole or a bump.The things would have been much better if the trail was 9 cm or more with a slightly longer wheelbase and a softer rear suspension, If honda could consider it.As for styling, Its simply conservative, Very unlike its elder siblings from kinetic-honda two decades ago, Which were a real looker with their contemporary designs and high quality paint works.

Problems in Activa 5G

Driving experience

Driving experience is average, The initial pickup is very bad, During initial pickup it's handle vibrates and makes a rattling sound.The paint work on activa 5g is also average as the paint has started to leave the surface from few points.It feels good if you are driving it 50-70kmph on a smooth road but if you are driving it on a bad road trust me the whole body of this will make a rattling sound and you will experience each and every bump of the road in a bad way.Overall the shockers are also not good.This vehicle also have handling problems.Its handles also shakes if you leave it while riding it.You will feel like a tank slapper kicked in.Overall this is not a safe way of transport.No handling.Not good initial pickup and not a good mileage (30-35kmpl).Just go for a bike with disc brake for your precious life.

Mileage is good. It's not

Mileage is good.It's not comfortable, The suspension and design is really bad.You might not get back pain with this, But due to its balancing design, It becomes a problem in pillion rides.It gets really painful in tight traffic, Especially in your neck region.It's really really heavy and it always wants to fall if you don't hold it with your life.I have used activa 3g, Tbh that was the best activa in my experience.I even drove with 2 people behind me in traffic and it never gave me any pain, Suspension was smooth in that, The balance is also good, I've used it for 3 years and no problems.5g is a dense pain inducing machine compared to 3g.Please don't buy this, Not even rent.

Average experience

It's an average experience with this scooter, i generally travel off-road it's very costly, with huge maintenance, so far and the mileage is around 47kms./ltr. After buying it in Feb 2020 I got two tires repaired, lots of punctures, and air leakage from the tires, still suffering from these, and the head-lamp of it is comparatively less powerful, even not enough requirements, the battery is also little pathetic, It doesn't easily start, mainly in winter, either by self-start or by kick-start! otherwise; the engine quality is good!

Comparatively improved

3.4

Driving experience is comparatively improved than previous models of activa as the suspension is more soft.Fuel economy has also been improved as bs6 complaint.The built quality of parts are now not sufficient as there are some glitches and unwanted noises are experienced, And the same is not solved in service also.

My self using honda since

4.2

My self using honda since 18 years almost.Started with kinetic.Today honda is reached up to 7 g.Never changed brands but changed models.Honda 5, Yes, Despite 6 feet height Driving 5g is just like a seating on cushion.Best for riding while everyone complains about khadda- pit holes in road.5g takes care of rider like a guide.One can drive up to 4 hrs without having any backache or dizziness, Or do not get carried away.One becomes fresh without spending more time.Night time is good with 5g.Long distance focus of head light with deeper is fantastic.White light gives clear vision of object we see.Break is of course depends on drivers choice but 5g is stable even we break at 60 km.Never skid on regular surface, May skid slip over slippery road.Nice sound, But cost is on little high.Machine need services but 5 g ask for less even using more then required.Centers are good to go.Nice people to share our problems.Reasonable cost of service at given time for delivery.Double seat is more comfortable then any other.Never gives any jurk or voble.Even we try 5g at 45 degree lean at 60 km but never been disappointed.Nice design and beautiful look but price is little higher.Thxs sanjay rathod 982****859.

So in my 2 years of experience

So in my 2 years of experience one thing is sure that in an emergency or whenever you experience an accident this activa 5g will not cheat you in both built quality and engine this activa 5g has simple moto to give us good speed, Good engine performance, Good mileage and a trustworthy experience that i experienced is after accident when you are having a critical medical situation this scooty will still start smoothly that's why i trust activa engine in compare to other available option.And the comfort of this scooty is also very great !.The worst thing is that you will not get this 110cc variant design in 125 cc variant.Also last thing to say is in market in long term activa series engines are very good and trustworthy as compared to others.For long term buy activa less maintenance cost and money saving.
