The second scooter launch to happen yesterday came in the form of the new 2017 Honda Activa 125. Incase you missed the first one, it was the Aprilia SR150 Race! Honda has also added a new mid-level version in the line-up. Priced from Rs 56,954 (ex-Delhi) onwards, the new Activa 125 also becomes the first scooter in India to meet BS-IV norms and gets AHO (Automatic Head Lamp On) as standard. BS-IV will be compulsory for all two-wheelers in India starting 1st April 2017. AHO will come into play next year (officially).
New 2017 Honda Activa 125 Design
There are no design changes in the new model. However, as part of the marketing gimmick, Honda is officially stating that the scooter now gets ‘striking LED position lights integrated in front chrome chest’. As stated above, there is a new mid variant that gets alloy wheels but with drum brakes. Honda has also added a new Mat Crust Metallic color for the Activa 125. There is also a larger 3D Honda emblem for a differentiated style.
New 2017 Honda Activa 125 Features
The new model gets a mobile charging socket along with a retractable front hook for more convenience. The Activa 125 is also the first scooter to get the automatic headlamp on feature (AHO). Other features carried over from the regular version includes front telescopic suspension, optional front disc brake, Combi Braking System etc.
New 2017 Honda Activa Engine
The scooter now meets Bharat Stage IV norms. Apart from this, the same 125cc HET engine is carried over here as well. Maximum power is fractionally down to 8.52 bhp for the new version. However, maximum torque has gone up by 4% to 10.54 Nm. Though this should change the overall performance much, the Activa 125 will be a tad quicker in slow moving traffic.
