Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India has launched the 2017 version of the Activa 125 with a host of updates. The look of the scooter is more or less the same, with the chrome plate on the front apron. The only change is that the front end also houses new LED position lamps and a bigger Honda Two Wheeler badge up front. Honda says that this is the first automatic scooter which gets both, a BS IV engine and auto headlamp on (AHO).
The new Activa 125 also gets a mobile charging socket and a retractable hook at the front, making it more user-friendly and convenient. Mechanically, it remains the same. The 124.9cc engine produces 8.52 bhp at 6,500rpm and 10.54 Nm at 5,000rpm, mated to a CVT unit. Of course, it also gets Honda's patented Combi Braking system (CBS) with an Equaliser system. What this Equaliser does is balances the braking inputs on both the wheels and thereby reducing stopping distances and keeps the balance maintained. The new Activa 125 continues to get 12-inch wheels and telescopic suspension up front.
