It has been speculated for a while that Honda will introduce a new 125cc scooter in India since they don't have one in that segment to compete with the rivals like Suzuki Access 125. However, Honda surprised the analysts by launching a new scooter in the same 110cc category, and called it "Activa i".

Activa i is a sleek and stylish scooter, best suited for women. Except for the name, it has no close similarity with the all time popular Activa. Honda continues to market Activa as a family scooter while the Activa-i is more appealing to the women.
