The Honda Activa was one of the few scooters that helped re-establish the 2-wheeled scooter segment in the Indian market back then. It helped Honda stay afloat in the two-wheeler market, which was dominated by Hero Honda in its time (now just Hero).

In February this year, HMSI launched the Activa 3G with new side panels, taillight, indicators and a new 3D logo. However, the mechanicals of the scooter were left unchanged. It is powered by a single-cylinder 110 cc engine capable of 8 PS and 8.74 Nm of torque, and is paired to a CVT gearbox. Aided by HET (Honda Eco Technology), the scooter has a claimed efficiency of 60 km/l under internal tests.
