At the same time, the Honda Activa 125 looks more stylish and premium. The Activa 125 is bigger in size and it does look different. To begin with, there is a dual tone colour scheme, and at the same time, the snout gets chrome treatment. The indicators are located on the snout and there are now daytime running LEDs as well. The side profile is similar to the Activa 4G, however the larger wheels and there are slightly bigger proportions.
