Honda Activa 125 Vs Suzuki Access 125- Comparison
Suzuki Access has become so popular that Honda Activa had to introduce a larger, 125cc version of the Activa in order to compete with Access. However, over the years, Suzuki Access lost some of its sheen. This is because Suzuki Access was launched decades back and it has only got some minor cosmetic changes. These changes actually helped Honda Activa 125 perform better on the sales chart. So, who is the winner here. Let’s find out in our Honda Activa 125 vs Suzuki Access 125 comparison.

This is the most considerable factor for almost everyone while buying a scooter. In terms of pricing, the Access 125 gets the better of Activa 125 in this comparison. The Activa 125 is comes in three variants – Standard, Standard with alloy wheels and Deluxe.
The Access 125 comes in a standard and one special edition variant only. Both variants come in drum and disc brake options. The Access 125 provides more options and that too at a lower price. So, when it comes to pricing, the Access 125 has a big advantage here.

It is difficult to pick a clear winner here. Both the scooters are powered by an air-cooled, single cylinder, carbureted, 124cc engines (124.9cc for the Activa 125). The engines pump out identical power of 8.52BHP for the Activa 125 and 8.58BHP for the Access 125. If there is a difference in the specifications, its the torque. That too is not too big
The Activa 125’s engine produces a 10.54Nm of peak torque @ 5,000 rpm whereas the Access 125 makes 10.20Nm of peak torque @ 5,000 rpm. That said, it would be difficult to make out which one has more torque in the real world conditions. It would be wise to say that specification wise both the scooters are equally good.

On paper, the Activa 125 is ahead of the Access 125. However, with a mileage of just 2 km/ltr higher than that of the Access it would be unfair to say that Activa is the winner when it comes to mileage.
