The Honda Activa is veteran in the scooter game. This scooter does not know failure. It’s cultivated a reputation for being a great product, one a buyer doesn’t have to mull over. Honda Activa owners are the most tension free motorists. Sometimes I imagine there could be Activa showrooms. The brand has cemented itself in Indian consumers’ minds and hearts.
Here are 8 reasons why the Activa is the sales leader of the scooter segment –
Honda Brand Value
The Honda brand name has a certain prestige, love and reliability factor associated with it. Right from the days of Hero Honda, it is one of the most loved brand for the Indian market. Hero Honda had been known for its Splendor.
Available in 2 engine options
The Activa is available with the trusty 110cc motor and the 125cc motor. Both these HET motors are great and bulletproof mills.
The riding position on the Activa is great. The passenger and the pillion both are comfortable with the seating position. There is ample space on footboard and the footpegs too are positioned well

Mileage is an added bonus with Activa scooters. Ridden economically these engines can return up to 50km/l.
Full Metal Body
This was the first scooter to offer a full metal body. A full metal body is more appreciated by buyers due to its robustness.
The scooter has a very good space under the seat. A full size helmet plus a few other items can be stored easily in the storage under the seat.
The tubeless tyres on the Activa reduce the chances of sudden deflation and make punctures a less scary matter.
And last but not the least there is Honda’s huge service network and chain of showrooms. The availability of spare parts is easy and you won’t ever be stranded for parts.
So these are some of the reasons that make the Activa the king of scooters in India. With sales approximately between 200,000 to 300,000 units a month, there is no stopping this scooter. Do you own an Activa? Will you buy a Honda scooter again?
