Our sources from company informed us that the trainings have been started for mechanics for product K-24 (Activa 125). Honda showcased Activa 125 at 2014 Auto Expo. Activa 125 is a product from Honda to get into market in par with competition for higher cc scooter.
Activa 125 will be powered by 124.9cc engine that churns 8.6 bhp and 10.2 Nm of torque.
