The recently introduced HET – Honda Efficient technology has been claimed to be successful on Activa 110 and Activa-i. The technology may find its way into the new variant of Activa as well. The new Activa 125 gets a 125 cc, four stroke, single cylinder motor that is mated to a V-matic CVT gearbox. The engine develops a maximum power of 8.6 Bhp and a top toque of 10.12 Nm. Moreover, the new 125 cc Activa features force air-cooled and single cylinder engine that is complimented with variator-controlled automatic transmission technology.
