The Honda Activa has ruled the Indian automatic scooter segment for over a decade and rival manufacturers have strived hard to eat into the Activa’s market share with limited success. Honda has taken its successful automatic scooter back to the drawing board at regular intervals, having brought in a facelift, increased displacement, and the Combined Braking System (CBS) in the past. To further up this scooter’s appeal, now, Honda has incorporated new engine technology known as Honda Eco Technology (HET).
