The cheapest and the most lightweight Honda Activa scooter is the Activa-i. It gets a relatively smaller fibre plastic body with the same mechanicals. Meanwhile, the 2018 Activa-i version has been silently launched in India. It is priced at Rs 50,010 (ex-showroom Delhi). It receives some visual updates and a couple new features, that are seen in the Activa 5G. This scooter is mainly focussed for female riders and is lighter than the normal Activa. It weighs around 103 kgs, which is amongst one of the lightest scooters. This scooter is not much popular though, despite Honda having a huge play in the 110cc segment. Read ahead to get more details on the update.
In the latest update, the scooter gets five new colours – Candy Jazzy Blue, Imperial Red Metallic, Lush Magenta Metallic, Orchid Purple Metallic and Mat Axis Grey Metallic. It also gets some extra features, which are found in the other new Honda scooters. The 2018 Activa-i gets a four-in-one ignition and a separate seat opener switch.
