Honda Activa 3G Design

The Honda Active 3G is sleeker compared to the previous generation. The front of the Active 3G has two fake air vents and a sharp snout. The headlamp size is similar and so is the case even for the side indicators. The front wheel is 10 inches and it has steel wheels.  The competition gets alloy (Hero Maestro Edge and TVS Jupiter offers 12-inch alloy wheels). The side profile is similar to the older generation and it has black side mirrors. There is no difference in the side profile, except the air vents that have been added to give it to the engine. The tail lamp is new and adds some glam factor to the scooter. The rear handle is also silver in colour. There are more air vents at the rear as well.

Honda Activa 3G Ergonomics

The Honda Activa 3G has one of the best ergonomics of the lot. This new generation scooty is comfortable and it has a new instrument cluster that has a speedometer of up to 120km/hr and a fuel gauge. The other indicators are side indicators, high beam and reserve fuel indicator. There is sufficient storage space for a full face helmet and even the still some more space.

Let us be honest about the fact that the quality of the scooter isn’t the best in its class. There are a lot more scooters like the Hero Maestro Edge and the TVS Jupiter that come with a better fit and finish. This is a simple looking scooter and there isn’t much on offer in terms of features. Where the Activa 3G stands strong is its brand name and the high resale value. The instrument cluster on the Honda Activa 3G are made up of speedometer, fuel tank and side indicators. There is low fuel waning and high beam indicator too. The design is simple and there aren’t any special gizmos. As most of the buyers need something that is reliable, this one fits in perfectly.

Honda Activa 3G Engine

The Honda Activa 3G has a 110cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. This is the best part about the Honda Activa 3G. This engine with 8bhp of power and 8Nm of torque performs pretty well. This engine has been retained from the first generation Activa and it continues to be the same. The scooter isn’t the most powerful, but it has good enough power to pull cleanly Twist the throttle and the engine responds quickly. There isn’t a major lag either. One can cruise comfortably at speeds of 60km/hr with ease.

This is one of the most easy to ride scooters and even the weight distribution is good to make turns without having to put your foot down. This is what makes it a good scooter. The strongest point is its available power and this is what makes it a good option to consider. Other than that, the reliability factor is the strongest point. With Honda’s brand name, this scooter gets a boost in its sales.
