The Honda Activa is a bike that looks completely family oriented. It has the sleek and trendy design that makes it light in weight so that the ladies can handle it too. The same goes for the TVS Wego. It is also designed to make the fairer sex use it with ease and confidence.
However, it looks much more like a macho bike. The white alloy wheels make the vehicle look a lot beautiful adding to the grace of the bike. The brown and the chocolate-colored shade, is perhaps the most sought after color combination.
Even if the Honda Activa sports the body that of a moped, it has a strong engine that would more than suit an entry level bike. The Activa comes in a single cylinder air cooled OHC engine. The 110cc displacement of the engine is the proof of it. The powerful engine of the vehicle churns out a maximum power of 8 bhp at 7500 rpm and creates a maximum torque of 7.85 Nm at 5500 rpm.
The TVS Wego has an air cooled, 4 stroke single cylinder engine. The engine displacement of the bike is 109.7cc. The engine delivers a max power of 8 bhp at 7500 rpm and generates an utmost torque of 8 Nm at 5500 rpm.
The 4-speed transmission of the Honda Activa gives the bike a healthy acceleration and pickup. The Activa, which carries a six liter fuel tank, takes around 10.5 seconds to reach the 60 kmph mark. The heavy duty engine allows the bike to be driven as fast as 89 kmph.
The Wego does not lack behind in the acceleration than the Activa. The Wego is a little faster and takes 10.30 seconds to reach the 60 kmph mark.
The fuel efficiency of the Activa also stands at a healthy 52 kmpl. However, practically speaking the average that the bike gives is 45 kmpl in the city area and 50 kmpl on the highways.
As far as the Wego is concerned, it fuel efficiency is a little low at only around 40 kmpl. The heavy built of the bike and the powerful engine contributes to the reduced millage of the bike.
The Activa comes in drum brakes for both the wheels. The diameter of both the brakes is 130mm. These drum brakes seem to be fine keeping in view the total performance of the bike. The suspension used for the Activa is bottom link with spring loaded hydraulic damper for the front wheel. As for the rear, there is the unit link with spring loaded hydraulic damper.
For the Wego, the same 130mm diameter brakes are used, like the Honda Activa. There is the in-line telescopic suspension for the front fork and for the rear it is the unit swing with spring loaded hydraulic damper.
The length of the Activa is 1765 mm, the height is 1130 mm and the width is 715 mm. The ground clearance seems to be a little low with 145 mm only.
Like the Honda Activa, the dimensions of the Wego are as follows: the length is 1834 mm, the height is 1115 mm and the width is 640 mm.
