18 Jan 2014
The all new Honda Activa 125 scooter is set to be unveiled at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, according to a report by Autocar India. The new Activa would share space with a range of Honda motorcycles at the brand's pavilion at the 2014 Auto Expo next month.
Honda Motorcycles and Scooters India sells the current Activa powered by a 109 cc engine. Rumours of a powerful 125 cc Activa were doing rounds for sometime now.
According to the report, the new Honda Activa 125 would be powered by a 125cc four-stroke, force air-cooled. It has a single-pot motor, with variator-controlled automatic transmission. Futhermore, the new model would be styled on the lines of the predecessors according to report.
The Indian scooter market is currently dominated by the Japanese auto giant, with newer entrants like Vespa and Yamaha arriving on the scene, Honda would need to launch a powerful version of its best selling scooter soon.
Although according to Autocar, the new scooter is named Activa 125, there seems to be some uncertainty about the actual launch as evident from post: ''If launched, Honda Activa 125 will be its biggest automatic scooter yet.''
At present, choices for automatic scooter buyers are limited, with a 125cc mill.
These include the Access and Swish from Suzuki, Vespa from Piaggio, and the Duro and Rodeo from Mahindra but Bajaj Auto too would be launching a new 125cc scooter this year.
