HET refined engine ensures smooth delivery of engine power with the help of V-matic automatic transmission. Honda Activa 5G’s engine is smooth and quiet as well. 8 bhp of engine power is sufficient for good pickup and smoother ride. The engine may last longer if serviced regularly with use of genuine spare parts. You may still notice the first generation of Activa on roads which shows reliability characteristic of a scooter.
Ride, Handling and Safety
Activa 5G ride is comfortable due to its longer and comfortable seat. Sufficient leg room for allows comfortable rider position for the tall person. The front suspension appears to be stiffer and may not filter out shocks well over the large potholes. Telescopic fork suspension is missing and hopefully, Honda may consider it in next upgrade. The scooter needs 12-inch wheels instead of current 10-inch wheels offering. Larger wheels would have improved ride quality and stability at higher speed. The brakes are equipped with CBS (Combi Brake System) Honda’s patented technology which ensures equally distributed brake force to the front and rear wheels simultaneously.

You may expect to get around 45-50 Kmpl in city riding conditions.
