Honda Motorcycle and Scooter India have cemented its presence in the Indian automatic scooter segment with its Activa, Aviator and Dio models. The Activa needs little introduction, being India’s most loved scooter, and the companies hottest seller. So, in a bid to build upon the Activa story, Honda has now rolled out what they call a personal compact automatic scooter, the Activa, now with an ‘i’. The Activa-i plays the role of a light, nimble and unisex automatic scooter that is easy to ride through traffic.
It’s a young and fresh looking daily commuter. Like most automatic scooters, the Activa-i houses its angular headlight in a bikini fairing, with clear lens turn indicators fitted to the scooters sleek front apron. As instruments, the i uses a boldly laid out analogue speedometer and fuel-gauge. Palm grips and switchgear are as expected from a Honda, comfortable and crisp working. Under the Activa-i seat is 18 litres of storage space, and the fuel tank filler, which can take in a maximum of 5.3 litres. The Activa-i’s flowing side panels taper towards the sharply styled taillight, giving it an attractive tail. The automatic scooter gets an ergonomically designed alloy grab bar that helps make hauling the scooter on its main stand less strenuous. The Activa-i rides on 10-inch pressed steel wheels and Honda has provided the rear wheel a tyre hugger. Overall fit-and-finish is good. Continued...
