    The Honda Activa is a good vehicle but the power of the vehicle drops considerably when there’s a pillion sitting , and if it’s a woman the balance of the vehicle is very bad all the weight of the vehicle falls on the riders right side I think this is a design flaw but my earlier activa use to not do this , my new activa is 2012 model otherwise the activa is good vehicle upto 50000km after that u will start getting engine troubles no matter how well u repair it
