The Honda Activa marked its highest sales volumes in a fiscal in 2016-17 with 2,759,835 units. Introduced first in 2001, the Honda Activa registered sales of 55,000 units in the first year. The 1st million was achieved in December 2005 while the 10 millionth unit milestone was achieved in July 2015.

The Activa has also emerged as the country’s largest selling two-wheeler in a financial year, beating the Hero Splendor by 2.09 lakh units, breaking its 17-year run.
