Honda Activa 125 vs Vespa: 5 quick observations

Vespa has an advantage of a bigger fuel tank with 7.4L (Activa has 5.3L tank), but gives less mileage compared with Activa 125.

BHPian ManneAtWheelz recently shared this with other enthusiasts.

I’m absolutely happy owning a Vespa, it doesn’t age with time, still people get wondered when I say the vehicle is 6 years old

When it comes to comparison with Activa 125, power specs shows slightly higher in Vespa but that big engine with more weight (Vespa at 115kg & Activa 125 at 109kg) is almost similar to Activa 125.

Ride & Handling

I have driven both these bikes and felt the power is linear in Vespa compared to rush acceleration in Activa. Having said that, Vespa is agile, quick, fast & easy maneuverable in city traffic.

Braking

I felt Activa 125 has more bite but both of these scooters are unstable at high speed braking (>60 kmph) despite Vespa 150 having single channel ABS at front.

Fuel Efficiency

Vespa has an advantage of big fuel tank with 7.4L (Activa has 5.3L tank) but gives less mileage compared with Activa 125.

Styling

Vespa takes hands down with metal body and proper paint, Activa has platic body and ages fast.

Comfort

Vespa has more legroom space, me at 6’2″ never hit my knees with handle at any point, very convenient luggage hook too.
