2018 honda activa 125

The Honda Activa range is the most popular model among scooters in India. Honda has a 125 cc version of the Activa as well.

According to a press release by HMSI, one of the major highlights in the rapid sales increase in the region is due to the growing acceptance of scooters. In the year 2006-07, scooters contributed only 7 per cent to overall two-wheeler sales, while currently, one in every three customers is buying a scooter in north India. Factors like improving roads, faster expansion of road network in rural areas, and more women joining the workforce has led to the growing demand for scooters, as well as increasing demand for a unisex two-wheeler that fulfils the need of every family member.


Honda currently has seven scooters in its two-wheeler line-up, including the Activa 5G, Activa 125, Aviator, Activa-i, Cliq, Dio and Grazia. The Honda Activa is not just the largest selling scooter in the country, but has time and again been the largest selling two-wheeler as well, surpassing Hero MotoCorp's bestselling Splendor motorcycle.
