Honda Activa 4G vs Activa 3G – Design

There’s almost no difference in the design of the Activa 4G and the Activa 3G. The only difference, other than the new badges, of course, arises out of the revised front apron of the Activa 4G. Thanks to this update, the Activa 4G definitely looks fresher than the Activa 3G. However, this is more because we’ve got too accustomed to seeing the Activa 3G on the roads. Hence, this little change on the 4G does make the scooter look a tad new. Apart from this, there’s no other change to differentiate between the two models. We’ve always felt that the Activa’s design has a wide appeal and manages to impress a wide age group. However, it’s time the Activa gets a major design overhaul to look really modern.
