Honda, the Japanese motorcycle and scooter manufacturing company has been dominating the Indian market for 16 straight years now. The company launched its first model in the year 2000 and since then no other company has ever regained or overtook Honda in two wheeler segment.

All the scooters come with great mileage, attractive body design, and low weight. Here we will discuss 4 major Activa scooter models that are launched in the country so far and that has led the path of its success by huge margin where no other product is seen near by it.

The Last Words
The biggest reason for the Honda Activa’s success is that the company has upgraded itself with time. If it would have remained to its basic model then we are not sure that it could make it to such a big level today. Therefore changing itself with time is the main reason for it to rule the automobile industry for straight 6 years now. Honda Activa I25 is the latest version of all which is equipped with all the advanced features.
