Honda has cemented its presence in the Indian market through its wide range of scooters which include Activa, Aviator and Dio. Activa don’t need any introduction as this is India’s most loved scooter and is the hottest selling scooter of the company. So Honda has rolled out a new Activa scooter in the market which they call a personal compact automatic scooter, the Activa with an ‘i’ i.e. Activa-i. Activa-i is a light weight and nimble scooter with a cosmetic change over the regular Activa model while retaining the engine, dimension and platform.
Activa-i is a unisex young daily commuter with a hint of feminism around the fiber body. This automatic scooter houses a wonderful look which includes an angular headlight with bikini fairing and front sleek apron fitted with clear lens turn indicators. The ‘i’ shows up a flowing side panel tapered toward the tail light which is sharply styled which gives this scooter a unique tail appearance. Palm grips and switch gear offered by Honda are really very comfortable and crisp working. This scooter also has an 18 litre of storage space under the seat which is enough to keep a full faced helmet. It has an upright riding position and enough space on floorboard for your feet which gives you a comfortable daily riding. Hauling the scooter on its main stand is normally a strenuous task but this scooter’s ergonomically designed alloy grab bar has made hauling less difficult. Honda has provided a 10 inch pressed steel wheel and a tyre hugger on the rear wheel. All these amazing features make this scooter really good looking and eye catchy.
