      My Humble Horse: Honda Activa 2007 Review & Mods

      Honda Activa Needs no Introduction.

      Honda Activa (2008) Price, Specs, Review, Pics Mileage in India

      Honda Activa - Wikipedia


      One of the Most successful and largest selling scooters all over the world.

      We brought our Humble Horse somewhere in 2007 (was that 08?). The horse has been doing its mundane chores dutifully since then. My version is the absolute first 1G with 100CC engine, Full metal Body and tall 5Amp (full size) battery. Since then Honda has launched over 5 generations and newer 109CC and 125CC engines. I am not going to go into technicalities of this humble and simple scooter nor present a comprehensive review on how it rides, Because I think everyone is well versed with that. This thread will serve as a placeholder for my Experiences, Mods and Long trips with the scooter.



      So lets Begin? First, how it looks after 12 years of serving me,

      #bhmv would not like to hijack your thread but our family Activa has completes 15 years with 45 K on the odo and we are unable to register it as it has completed 15 years. So now completely confused as to what to go with. Probably would be TVS Ntorq. Other option might be battery operated but still very confused. Will need to purchase one in another 2 to 3 months.

      I wasn't aware RC renewal woes also extend to 2w these days. Where are you from?

      Battery operated toys have their own limitations. They are optimized to work with a fixed useage pattern. Such as Short, Daily trips. If your Usage is out of this pattern, say 100+ Kms a day or very less used where scoot is just parked most of the time, Battery scoots will not handle it.

      There are good many ICE scoots available in the market.
      Aprilla 150, Maestro, Ntorq, Jupiter are a few. Check Suzuki Bergmann if you like bulky looks.

      I would suggest you wait till 2020 for proper implementation of BS6 before splurging money on a new scoot. For the time being, buy any used Activa etc of your choice.
