Honda Activa 125 vs Honda Activa 3G Engine

Honda wants to cater to subtle buyers as well. So they have retained colours like white on the Activa 3G also. The Activa 3G has a  109cc engine that produces about 8bhp. The Activa is very zippy and even there is good enough instant power that is normally needed in city. The fuel efficiency is also good, and it is one of our favourite scooters in 110cc, and no doubt it is the best-seller too. The Activa 3G is the best-selling scooter in its segment and even of the three scooters it is the 3G that is the pick for majority buyers. The 3G is also available in trendy colours like the blue that we have shot and even subtle colours like white and silver.

Honda Activa-i:

The Activa-I is the same Activa with body-weight of 103kg instead of 110 on the Activa. So, the Activa-i is perceived a feminine scooter as it is slender and is available in trendy colours. But honestly, it is lighter and even more fun to ride than the Activa 3G. This scooter is much more fun as it is lighter and more easier to ride in the city. The Activa-i is called as a personal scooter, while the Activa 3G gets the family scooter tag. The Activa-i is a lot cheaper than the Activa 3G, so it becomes a good option.

The  Activa 3G is the best choice and if you are driving more on open roads where you can cruise at 65km/hr, then pick the Activa 125, else the Activa 3G does the job for you. The Activa 3G has a top speed dog 82km/hr and the 125 has bit more higher. You buy a scooter for city use generally and hence, the Activa 3G is our recommendation.

The Honda Activa 4G get changes that are not major in nature though. The first major change is that the Activa 4G now gets a BS-IV engine. The scooter now complies with the new emission norms. It also gets AHO (Auto Headlamp On) and some minor tweaks in styling.

The basic design and features of the Honda Activa 4G the same as earlier. There is a USB charging facility though, which is available as a accessory at a higher price.  We wish this could have been offered as a standard feature. The Honda Activa 4G is priced at ₹ 57,000 (on-road, Delhi) and to install any accessory, one has to spend extra money. Lets see in detail what all the Honda Activa 4G brings in.
