Honda Activa 4G side profile

When you think scooters, one name that comes to mind is Honda Activa. The brand Activa has been more popular than Honda itself, in India and the scooter has been the best sller for a long time now. Honda Activa has been receiving upgrades periodically and this has helped the brand grow stronger over the years. It has grabbed the mind share of customers and is top of the mind while making a purchase. The Honda Activa is in its fourth generation now and there are some changes it brings along with. This is the Honda Activa 4G, which stands for 4th generation. While the upgrades are not major like the Activa 3G, it does get some cometic upgrades that make it look more premium. The Honda Activa 4G is a sophisticated looking scooter and looks better than its earlier models.

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.

Honda Activa 4G Price in India

City Price (on-road)
New Delhi ₹ 55,400
Mumbai ₹ 62,000
Pune ₹ 59,900
Bengaluru (Bangalore) ₹ 63,010
Ahmedabad ₹ 58,500
Surat ₹ 58,600
Hyderabad ₹ 60,500
Kolkata ₹ 60,600
Patna ₹ 59,050
Bhopal ₹ 59,300
Kolkata ₹ 57,500

There is no major increase in price of the Honda Activa 4G over the earlier Activa. The price difference is only about ₹ 600. As there is no major increase in price, the scooter does no see any new features as such. The changes are mainly mandatory in nature, for which Honda has increased the price minimally.

Honda Activa 4G Top Speed

There is no change in the top speed of Honda Activa 4G, which is 82 km/hr. The scooter rides the best at 60-70km/hr. Though it can manage speeds beyond that, it is not recommended, as the Activa feels nervous at higher speeds, over 70km/hr.

Honda Activa 4G Design

The design of the Aciva 4G is similar to the Activa 3G, but it does get styling tweaks. From the front, this change is apparent. One can see new lines on the front panel, which looks nice. The plastics also see a minor change. The headlamp switch is done away with. The scooter now has Auto Headlamp On feature, which is mandatory. This scooter still does not get alloy wheels, which most of its competition is offering. The Activa 4G comes with steel wheels only. From the side too it remains identical, however there is a Activa 4G badge on the side panel. This badhe is quite bold and stands out. The rear is the same as the earlier model and there is no change here. Things like side stand and mobile charging facility are available as accessories and they do cost extra.
