Honda Activa started its journey back in the year 2002 with its sales crossing 55,000 units in the first year. The sales of the Activa started picking up the pace and two years later, the scooter crossed 5 lakh unit sales. 2005 was the year when Honda Activa achieved 10 lakh unit sales and the 50 lakh milestone was achieved in the year 2012. In 2015, the Activa created a record by achieving 1 crore sales milestone and after two years, the scooter went on to become India's and world's largest selling two-wheeler. One of the prime reasons why the scooter has been a hit in the market is its mature design that has been accepted generously for over a decade and this the reason why even after so many years, the Activa still sees the same design language. Add to that the trust and reliability of Honda that is still unbroken in any way due to which people have become familiar with the brand and hence, most of them opt for the Active instead of any other automatic scooter in the market.
