The prices of the popular Activa and the Activa 125 models were recently increased by Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India (HMSI), but no additional modifications were made. For a long time, Indian families' preferred choice has been Activa, which still rules the market today. Price increases for the Activa and the Activa 125 amount to Rs 811 and Rs 1,177 respectively. Following the hike, Activa's starting price has now been updated to Rs 75,347, while the most expensive variation is priced at Rs 81,348. Both prices are ex-showroom. Similar to this, the Activa 125's base price has gone up to Rs 78,920, and the high-end model now costs Rs 86,093 (excluding the showroom charges). It's important to note that the top-of-the-line Activa 125 H-Smart is still available for the same Rs 88,093 (ex-showroom) price and has not been subjected to the latest hike. Meanwhile, Honda has dropped the '6G' tag from its Activa 110 model, changing the name to just Honda Activa. With the release of the Activa 3G in 2015, the firm took the "G" tags. The Activa 125 model's name, however, has not been altered. If you are looking to purchase the 2023 Honda Activa 125, here's everything you need to know about the model.
2023 Honda Activa 125: Mechanical Specs
The hardware required for OBD2 compliance is the extent of the mechanical modifications. The scooter's 123.97cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine continues to produce a maximum of 8.18bhp at 6,500rpm and a peak torque of 10.3Nm at 5,000rpm. A CVT transmission is coupled with this engine.
2023 Honda Activa 125: Styling and Colour Options
The 2023 Honda Activa 125 range keeps the design elements from its forerunner and has a single-pod headlamp with a body-coloured cowl, front turn indicators positioned on the apron, a front fender painted the same colour as the body, and chrome accents on the body panel and apron. The colour palette now has five options instead of six as in the previous iteration. Pearl Night Start Black, Heavy Grey Metallic (not in Drum variation), Rebel Red Metallic, Pearl Precious White, and Mid Night Blue Metallic are among the colour schemes on the list.
2023 Honda Activa 125: Hardware Details
The 2023 Activa 125 stands on an underbone frame, much like its predecessor, and employs telescopic front forks and a three-step adjustable rear spring to perform suspension duties. Drum brakes are used for both wheel anchoring on the base variants (Drum and Drum Alloy), while a 190mm disc brake is used for the front anchoring and a 130mm drum unit for the rear anchoring on the higher versions (Disc and H-Smart). A combined braking system is part of the range's safety net. The scooter also has 12-inch front and 10-inch rear wheels.
2023 Honda Activa 125: Features
The 2023 Activa 125 continues to employ an LED headlamp with LED position lights, Enhanced Smart Power (eSP) technology, ACG Starter, Idling Stop System, side stand engine inhibitor function, and combined braking system. The feature list for the whole range is comparable to that of the previous model. The 2023 Activa 125, on the other hand, has an instrument cluster that is semi-digital and includes an odometer, clock, ECO indicator, and service due indicator. The H-Smart model then gains further advantages from a Smart Key System, which adds capabilities like Smart Find, remote unlock, keyless ignition, and an anti-theft system. The fuel lid and under-seat storage may both be accessed with the smart key.
