Honda Activa vs Activa-i: Similarities and differences
Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India Pvt. Ltd (HMSI) launched their new personal compact scooter in India last month, Activa-i. Though automobile enthusiasts and Honda scooter fans in India were awaiting a 125cc automatic scooter to compete with Suzuki Access 125, what was launched was Activa-i, powered by the same 110 cc engine that powers the Activa.
Comparison between Honda Activa and Activa-i: Let us take a closer look at both models and see what is new in the Honda Activa-i and how it differs from the classic model of Activa.
Engine & Mechanics: Both the scooters are powered by the same Air cooled, 4 stroke engine with a displacement of 110cc. So, you will not see any difference in power, whether you are on an Activa or the new Activa-i. Both the scooters have the same 130mm diameter brakes and they both use the new combi-brake technology. The combi-brake system automatically applies the front brakes in correct proportion when you apply only the rear brakes, making it a lot more safe for the riders. The combi-brake system introduced in Activa models a few years ago is carried to the new model as well. Spring loaded hydraulic type suspension is also same in both models.
