  • All models from Activa 3G onwards use tubeless tyres only
  • Older Type models had the option of tube tyres along with the tubeless tyre.
  • Though a tubeless tyre, one can still safely install a tube inside if faced with repeated puncture issues due to road conditions

Using the correct, factory-recommended tyre size for your specific Honda Activa model and year of manufacture ensures:

  • Optimal load carrying capacity, based on vehicle kerb weight and expected usage
  • Improved stability from precise tyre contact patch and profile
  • Enhanced ride quality since the suspension is tuned for OE tyre sizes
  • Better fuel efficiency as rolling resistance remains in tune with engine specs
  • Higher safety reserves in terms of braking distances and cornering grip

It is advised to always replace tyres with the exact dimensions tyre which comes initally. While purchasing new activa tyres, carefully inspect details like width, aspect ratio sidewall marking along with speed/load index marked on the tyre sidewalls. Deviating even slightly from the approved tyre sizing can negatively impact Activa’s handling, mileage or even regulatory compliance in some cases. Stay safe and maximize enjoyment from your wonderful scooter by using right tyre!
