Honda Activa Review

by Deepak on January 28, 2009

The Honda Activa is an amazing bike. Ask anybody who owns it and they will vouch for it. Let me introduce you to this 2 wheeled marvel and show you why Honda is a master of their art of building 2 wheelers.

A Winner Among the Masses: Since its launch in 2001 the Honda Activa has become a hit with both men and women as it caters to the needs of both genders. Practical, comfortable, convenient, reliable, durable, maintenance and stress free, workhorse, family carrier etc… are some of the adjectives associated with the Activa.

Honda Activa

The Engine: The bike has a 102 cc engine with v-matic 4-speed transmission and 7 bhp of power. The only shortcoming is, the bike gives only 40 km/ltr in city and 45 on highway. I am sure this is a small price to pay as once you ride the bike and feel the refinement of the engine even at 70 km/hr you won’t mind about mileage at all.

Lots of Storage Space: The bike has plenty of storage space for little knick-knacks and for those trips to the market and grocery stores. You have an optional storage compartment box to fit beneath the handlebar for extra storage space. Beneath the seat you can keep your full-face helmet and save money, as you won’t need a helmet lock.

Wings of Change: Activa has a 6-liter fuel tank and has a range of 240 kms on highways before needing a refill. The bike has a metal body that is sturdy and because of this the bike weighs almost 110 kgs. The weight is an advantage to you as, cross winds won’t affect you when you are driving in city or highways and the bike is stable and steady on all kinds of roads. The suspension and the wide comfortable seat keep the rider and pillion isolated from the bumps and other irregularities.

Honda Activa

Have you got your Honda? The Activa is the best bike for those crowded rush hour traffic and nothing even comes close. You can out maneuver anything else with this bike and I think you should call it “traffic buster”. The bike is in my opinion the easiest 2 wheeler to drive. No gears, no clutch, self-start for easy starts. The bike has tuff-up tube tires on both wheels, which are puncture proof.  I feel the bike is even easier than a cycle as you have to just sit and twist the throttle and zip away. Remember in a cycle you have to pedal and it’s a pain while Honda Activa is a pleasure to drive.

Honda has always been a top automobile company and their products are the best. Just take a look around you and you will realize that some of the best bikes in India are from Honda. Unicorn, CBZ Xtreme, Hunk, Activa, Splendour, Passion, Dio, Shine, the old CBZ, CBF Stunner, Pleasure etc. to name a few.

If you guys can remember some time back you will realize the gearless scooter which made Kinetic Famous was also a Honda under the skin. Later we had the 4s edition which was also courtesy of Honda.

You see even Pleasure is also a Honda underneath. What I am trying to tell you is that Honda tech is the one of the best in the world why else do you think companies like Kinetic and Hero had collaborations with Honda.

So obviously when Honda releases a product it will be truly world class. Honda entered the Indian market with the active and soon the bike became a hit. Honda established itself in India as a major 2 wheeler force. Later we had Dio, Unicorn, Shine and now Stunner.

It is quite a good bike a s my grand father owns one.I think Honda is first in this segment because of the Activa.

I think Honda should consider giving the Activa a facelift. The Aviator seems to be a better bet then the Activa.

in its class, it is undoubtedly the best selling scooter with satisfied customers.. one of my friend owns an activa and he doesnt have a reason to complain…
simply awsome and reliable!

Hey Deepak! thanks for your review on this bike.because i have already booked an activa, it will be coming in a month or so.But my doubt is about Honda Dio.It was happen to seen the dio in showroom.I feel that Dio more sporty and trendy on looks compare to activa, even it is 3,000 rs lesser than activa.but my bro’s eyes is on activa from first.Did we miss the Dio.? Please let me know your opinion on Dio and hope we will see a review on that too.Your doing a great job with your site.keep up the good work.Thank You!
——–waiting for your reply.Ani

hi, dio is no doubt a very good option, but the one and only reason you should not buy it is its body!! it has fiber body which damages very easily and is very costly to replace,

Engine of both are the same but dio is a bit better in performance, handling and maintenance.

Reply

Deepak January 30, 2009 at 8:27 am

If I were in your position, I will cancel my booking and persuade the showroom owner to change to booking to Dio. Just my opinion. Ask more people for suggestions and if you feel you want Dio, do anything possible to cancel your current booking.

Well, I dont own any two wheeler as yet but after reading lots of reviews and world of mouth, I am planning to buy Activa. I feel its better than Deo. The main disadvantage with Deo is its plastic body. It breaks down very easily and its not fully insured. So, if u r regularly driving on busy roads, even small incidents can put a dent on ur pockets as u might have to spent on the body regularly.

i am owning activa since mid of 2007 and i don’t have any compliance. My opinion is, it is very comfortable,non problematic two wheeler. If anybody share tips for maintenance (like checking oil, checking air filter) of activa, it would be great. I will strongly suggest any one to go for activa.

My sister has bought Hero Honda Pleasure and I have rode it for ~ 100 km. Very nice bike. Smoothe ride and quiet. Technology meant for something…!!! Although not meant for too much bad roads… runs excellent on highways @ 60-70 kmph. The best feature is that I almost never needed to apply brake. And No Need to Kick Start…!!!

The aviator is old wine with new bottle as it is fitted by old activa engine ,what about new activa which newly launched ,if any one using it give details abour milege &riding comfort as well as regarding maintaince .

ppaappi September 6, 2009 at 7:25 pm

when it was launched i was one of the first 100 chaps to buy honda activa.It has a problem with its KICK ASSEMBLY.and it is too much dependent on battery which gives way frequently and the after sales service is not at all good..if u r not in a transferable job u can hack it with a permanent mechanic…i have changed its kick assembly 5 times with once within six months..and the company response on complaints and suggestions is very poor…only the name is japanese..work culture is not….

Shambhu November 12, 2009 at 4:21 pm

I have been owning a new Activa from May09 and have been quite happy with its ride. However, I have noticed that if the scooter is not used for 1 or 2 days, then it doesn’t start if the self-start is used and it takes a while to start it by using kick starter in the mornings, even while using the choke. Don’t know why they introduced Manual choke in Activa as against the automatic choke used in the earlier Kinetic Hondas. Also, it would have been better if they had introduced Telescopic front forks as in Access 125 and Mahindra Flyte, since even small bumps or potholes in the road are felt by the rider and causes one to slow down. There is not much change in other depts either like, fuel filling still under the seat, only marginal increase in power.

I am used to the smaller Scot’s for some time:Bajaj Spirit and Scooty, with my recent purchase of ACTIVA, I felt it to be too heavy to be handled by small ladies :) inspite of it ride quality; I mean HERO Pleasure with it’s telescopic front suspensions and form factor is a better bet for ladies, I am told it’s offers the best ride quality- research service/spares availability and fault history to decide between either.

Guys I feel that the previous version of activa was better. It has a sexy road grip compared to the new one, the new one has got a huge ass…
@Malkiat :- Activa’s mileage depends on how you drive the vehicle. Gives max. of 45-50kmpl…
It eats up fuel if you go to speeds of 70kmph then brake for some reason and then again accelerate…
Price is around 50k ( On Road ).

Amruth Rao June 11, 2010 at 11:44 am

Compared to kinetic honda dx, the forerunners of scooters in india, the activa has awesome acceleration, elegant design and superb control. It feels like heaven to a guy like me who has got used to the kinetic for five years. Tell u guys, kinetic honda howls like a cheated girlfriend when it accelerates! It is a very stupid scooter. The brakes are loose, the front wheel wobbles often and there is no foot space for the pillion rider.
Hats off to activa makers. Its thousand times better than kinetic honda.
Choose activa.
GO FOR IT!!

I purchased New Honda Activa arounf 1.2yr back.Modified Activa was recently launched.I am not at all happy with it’s performance (ride, fuel economy ). All are worst.Companies claims are completly wrong.Avg fuel ecnomy will be around 35-40 kmpl. Apart form this belwo are problems
1) Never starts first time with buttom start option. We need to have choke on every time during starting in all sesasons.
2) Kick start very difficult.it’s postion and ergonomics not atall good. Withing first month only , kick start gear broke.
3) Adjustment of mirror difficult.Can not be adjusted at required position with ease.
4) Head lamp light never on middle of road even after adjustment.
5) entry & removal of key- Very hard , uncomfortable.Need special attention .
I wil advice not to go for Activa with all these problems.

i own a honda activa for the past 2 years 7 months and it had never given me any problem . it gave me mileage of 43 kms per litre in my village.but since the last 2 months its maintenence cost have gone very high, as after every 2000 kms i have to change front wheel bearings as they break everytime after around 1800 – 2000 kms , have to change the rear gear bearings , i also changed front shock absorbers once , have to change oil seal everytime i do servicing or else the engine oil gets leaked ,and the worst part is that there is rust on every part of the bike body and the rust comes from inside the paint and chunks of rusted metal comes off with the paint.this means that the painting work done on activa is not good and not done properly.

i had to pay around 1378 rs for servicing at 13388 kms and now at 16000 kms i had to shell out another 971 rs on its maintenence.

my friend has a new activa but its combi brake is faulty as its brake is not at all effective ( seen in almost 7 new activas of my friends ) , but it gives a mileage of around 50 kms per litre with smooth ride but u will have to sacrifice on paint work as it wont last long.and its so called maintenence free battrey is a big flop as it gets heated up and breaks into 2 pieces if one goes for long rides.after its warranty period gets over one will face problems

Are you out of mind ? a activa with 95 kms/hr as top speed ? a activa gives a maximum top sped of 80 kms/hr.i seen hundreds of activas and everyone tops speed was 80 kms/hr max.even honda service center mechanic who is my good friend told me that activa n dio max speed is 80 kms per hr and i m owning a activa and dio and its max speed is 80 kms per hr.

@ Tanmay

Dude go at honda service center and do the carburetter tuning. as you will ruin your carburetter as the screw will become loose and hence you will have to replace your carburetter.and carburetter cost a lot. honda people know their bike well as they are given company training and hence they know their bike better.

I completely Agree with you all!!! Activa is a perfect vehicle…. My Dad has used it for more than 6 years and as it was old he sold it off n booked a new Activa Honda(White color).. It gave me a shock when they said it wil take 10 months to get the vehicle… Its been more than 3 months now… Tel me friends who can wait for 10 months… As my dad is aged (70+) he needs vehicle to go out… Hence I am planning to buy Mahindra 2 wheeler (Duro) they are ready to give us within a week… I am not sure what to do… Kindly advise….

Thank you so much for you advise!!!

I have very new honda activa & I like it but I hate one thing every morning that is when I start it. It does not start using that self starter & even in kick also. I have to kick 15-20 times then it starts. Which I hate most. We three friends bought 3 Honda active in one month apart from same dealer in Chennai. We all three are facing same starting problem. Not sure whether Honda has provided such a poor battary or the dealer has changed the orginal battary & put a duplicate one. My father had a Bajaj Super & I remember after 5-6 years when I used to borrow it from father & start, I used to bend a little & kick once & it used to start. With this experience I will not recomend or buy Honda Activa in future.

You better be strong enough to handle the weight ; I am surprised at the weight of the ACTIVA, no one wants a 110CC to be so heavy – they could have optimized (=reduced) the weight further to get better fuel efficiency.

Mostly everyone has written on favor of Activa. But it doesn’t deserve to be the best and that for females it has got its own disadvantages. First thing is the Self start. If u don’t start or drive for 2 days u’ll have problem with the key start. Then comes the kicker. When a bike is meant to be made also for females utmost care should be taken in design. Anyone who use the bike ask whether they are comfortable with the kicker. Its positioned in the most uncomfortable place. Without applying the main stand the kicker is almost impossible to use. If tried to start from without the stand the kicker will get stuck to the main stand. Also the kicker has to be pressed from behind towards the front which makes it difficult for ladies even for men to get proper hold of the vehicle. The next thing is the weight. Made fully metallic when in the signal or some traffic place when the vehicle stops it’s very pathetic to see the ladies moving the vehicle the side of the road when theres problem with self start and who finds it difficult to make the vehicle stand on its main stand. Again the two foot rest placed in such s way that it wud make u to play hide n seek. U hav to release it with ur hands only. Also another drswback is the petrol tank placed inside the seat. Had it be placed in the front or out of the seat it wud be more comfortable. Certainly its not a user friendly one and not the best one from Honda. One point of time there was no option to go. But now many scooter manufacturers r there with these problems rectified like TVS has the petrol tank lid behind n out of the seat. Mshindra i think its placed in the front. Honda has to look into all these drawbacks. Being a no. 1 for brand name sake will not do.

Hi,

I bought Honda activa 2.5 months back. It is a nice 2 wheeler except self start problem if we do not use for 1 or 2 days. We have to use choke or kick starter for the first ride of the day! However, the self start works after the engine becomes warm. Applying sudden brake is not good. The vehicle does not stop instantly; it moves forward for 1 to 2 feet. So, keep a distance while riding especially if you have a pillion rider.
