The Honda Activa 125 has commenced bookings for INR 5,000.

The booking amount is INR 5,000. The dealers also inform us that there would be two variants of the Activa 125 – disc and drum. While the drum brake Activa 125 would be priced at about INR 56,000, the disc brake version can cost up to INR 63,000 we are informed. [Ex-Showroom prices mentioned.]

The Activa 125 would then be about INR 6,000 pricier than the standard Activa which comes with a 110cc engine.

The Activa 125 is powered by a single-cylinder, four-stroke, air-cooled, 124.9 cc engine which produces 8.6 bhp at 6,500 rpm and 10.12 Nm of torque at 5,500 rpm. A V-Matic transmission, similar to the regular Activa, is used on the 125.
