And this retro-classic avatar of the Honda Activa is one such piece. Read – Modified Mahindra Thar ‘Beast’ Is A Pure Swag!
The Pune-based journalist, Vishal Joshi has turned his Activa into a retro-styled Honda Scoopy. So, what’s different in this classic-retro Honda Activa? Well, a lot of things. Based on the first-generation Activa, the modified version features a large circular headlamp instead of the standard unit.

Just behind the headlight, you will notice the 80s-inspired analogue dials displaying the speedometer and the fuel gauge. The dial-placed on the right also shows a trip meter and the odometer. While all the lights and turn indicator controls are accessible on the left side of the handlebar, the right side has the self-start button.

The blinkers are also placed into the handlebar. The customised Honda Activa features round rear view mirrors that add more to its retro looks. It has the single-tone body-panel under the seat and saddle in a tan-leather cover and white stitching.
No changes have been made to its engine. The retro-styled Honda Activa features the same 109.2cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine paired to a V-Match automatic transmission. This motor makes a top power of 8bhp at 7,500rpm and 8.74Nm of torque at 5,500rpm. Pictures – Meet the Modified Suzuki Swift ZERCON
For stopping power, the scooter uses the same front and rear drum brakes. It gets spring loaded hydraulic tyre upfront and rear suspension unit. Similar to the stock model, the modified Honda Activa runs on the 10-inch front and rear wheels.
