The entry-level model of the Honda Activa series is priced at ₹50,010 (ex-showroom, Delhi).
The female-oriented Honda Activa-i has received minor updates for the 2018 model year, which include new features and updated colours.
New features that the 2018 Activa-i gains include a four-in-one ignition, a separate switch to open the under-seat storage, a metallic exhaust muffler, front hook and a dual-tone analogue instrument console. Then, the colour options on the 2018 model are Candy Jazzy Blue, Imperial Red Metallic, Orchid Purple Metallic, Mat Axis Grey Metallic and Lush Magenta Metallic.
The 2018 Activa-i gets no mechanical updates, however. So, the tried and tested 110cc, four-stroke engine that’s good for producing 8bhp and 9Nm continues to power the scooter. For those unaware, this is the same engine that also powers the Activa 5G. In fact, the Activa-i also continues to share its suspension with the latter. The 2018 Activa-i also gets tubeless tyres and CBS brakes as standard.
Targeted at female riders, the Activa-i is the lightest scooter of the Activa series, which also includes Activa 5G and Honda Activa 125. The Activa-i competes in the Indian market with the TVS Scooty Zest, Hero Pleasure and Suzuki Lets.
