Honda Activa 4G top speed

Gearless scooters like the Honda Activa aren’t really meant to be driven at high speeds. However, thanks to the improving road infrastructure levels in the country, customers often get enough empty road to reach the scooter’s top speed. As a result, it becomes important to know the Honda Activa 4G’s top speed.

Since the engine and output figures of the Activa 4G are identical to that of the 3G model, the officially claimed top speed figure too hasn’t seen any changes. Hence, the Honda Activa 4G top speed is 82 km/h.

It must be noted that we don’t advise taking the Activa 4G to its top speed. Instead, the rider should keep the scooter under 70 km/h. This is because of the fact that at higher speeds, the Activa 4G gets a bit unsettled and doesn’t inspire confidence to deal with emergency situations.
