Honda Activa 3G – All You Need to Know

Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India (HMSI) launched the Activa 3g early last year. The Honda Activa 3G replaced the earlier 110cc model of this very popular automatic scooter. The new Honda Activa 3G has been among the highest selling two wheelers in the country. The Activa is so popular that it has even outsold the once invincible Hero Splendor on few occasions. Currently, HMSI sells three models of the Activa- 110cc 3g, Activa i and Activa 125cc. However, the most popular of these has to be the Activa 3g.

The scooter continues to be powered by the same 110cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that powered the earlier model. Unlike what was being expected, the scooter hasn’t been re-tuned to offer more torque or fuel efficiency. Talking about fuel economy, the engine continues to feature Honda Eco Technology (HET) and offers a real-world fuel mileage of 48 kmpl. Sadly enough, the new scooter doesn’t get a telescopic front suspension.

Honda Activa 3G Design Review

The new scooter, which has been internally named as ON2Y by HMSI, is highly based on the outgoing model and while it continues to sport the same basic design, it gets some minor cosmetic upgrades that help in differentiating between the new and the old models.

The Activa 3G boasts 3D badges and attractive colour options. These two help it have a more attractive look. The new taillight assembly mimics the Activa 125 model. The instrument panel and many other bits, however, have been carried over from the earlier model of the Activa. The new paint colours seem to be of top notch quality.

Elaborating on how Activa is changing the Indian 2Wheeler industry, Mr. Yadvinder Singh Guleria, Senior Vice President, Sales & Marketing, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd. said,

“A decade ago who would have bet that a scooter would once again be the largest selling two-wheeler in India. But today, Activa has broken the glass ceiling. First, it is only automatic scooter which has become India’s No. 1 Selling 2Wheeler (in June’15, July’15). Secondly, backed by its demand, Honda has become the First Manufacturer to sell more than 2.5 lac scooters in a single month ever in July’15. We believe this demand for automatic scooters will continue to rise. And to further extend its undisputed market leadership and meet the future demand, Honda will continue to innovate its products and services.”
