I recently purchased Activa 125 (Alloy+Drum) for my wife. I already have Access 125 (Alloy+Disc) for almost about a year, purchased for my father. Access is BS3 and Activa, obviously, BS4. The following are the quick comparison points I observed after driving Activa 125, hope it helps buyers in choosing the correct one.

THE ALL-NEW ACCESS 125 (ALLOY+DISC)
1) The pick-up of Access is more, about 10%, to get an idea.
2) The footboard of Access is little long, useful to carry little more cargo.
3) The handle bar of Access is little higher. While driving, it feels like big head ahead of us. It also make getting in and out little easier.
4) The under seat lock is coupled with main lock. Also, there is small pocket on the front left, handy for some.
5) Only the front nose bumper is metal, rest of the body is fiber.

ACTIVA 125 (ALLOY+DRUM)
1) The engine of Activa is smooth, you can feel it on your accelerator lever.
2) The front telescopic suspension is little on softer side. I could feel little more bouncing on the same road compared to Access. I could also feel more front body vibration in Activa compared to Access, may be fixed in 1st service.
3) For handle lock, I had to turn handle little clock wise to lock it. It was same in other Activas I checked at dealership. Getting in detail, I found the slot for pin to lock is aligned in such a manner. Why Honda?
4) The accelerator lever had some sideway play, <- ->, giving vibration to hand during jumpy road. I think it can be corrected during 1st service.
5) The front hook (not the under seat hook), is sideways retractable.
6) Only the front body piece near battery and license plate is fiber, rest is metal.
7) Comes with Combi Brake + Equalizer. I doubt how Equalizer works!

On 18th May, I updated

.....- it is sad, but this life.
.....I intend to take My Milky bar for free servicing in next 7 days.

2nd Free Service Experience
  1. Originally due on 11th Apr @ 3500-4000 KMs.
  2. Actually done on 21st May @ 3067 KMs.

SERVICE APPOINTMENT AND RECEPTION
21st May was a Sunday and, thank god that Advaith Suzuki accepts appointment for servicing - else there was no way I could've got time to do servicing on weekday.

I reached service center sharp at 08:30AM sharp against advised time of 9 AM. I was 3rd customer to reach there. Staff processed customer vehicles on FIFO(First In First Out) basis.

JOB CARD PREPARATION
During job card preparation, I did not report any malfunction/issue- asked them to do regular job. Since I had over-ran the 2nd free service window, I was told that I will have to pay Rs 100 as labour charge- I was fine with it.

DECIDED ON NEW ACCESSORIES
I asked for below 2 extra accessories to be fitted:
  1. Ladies Footrest – my mother-in-law requested for this
  2. Indicator buzzer – I needed for this from safety perspective. I realized that I sometimes miss out disabling the indicator after a turn. Also, bigger vehicles' drivers are used to buzzer from scooters

ACTUAL SERVICING
This time also I intended to oversee things while my scooter was attended. Within 10 minutes, the mechanic/staff requested to sit in customer lounge and not in stand in shop-floor. The mechanics/staff were pointing at CCTV camera and saying it’s against policy. I neither pushed-back on this nor argued. I went back and stood near the customer lounge and tried to see what was being done.
It was a standard affair – drain oil and lubricate all joints. For some reason the mechanic was also working on adjusting the rear view mirror- when I had not asked for it!

2 REQUESTS DENIED
I asked the supervisor (Mr. Bhaskar) for 2 things:
1. Clean polyurethane foam element of Air Filter(should be cleaned every 3000 KM as per manual)
2. Inspect and clean Oil Strainer (as per manual, should’ve been done in 1st servicing, but was not done. So, I insisted this time)

Mr Bhaskar replied that these works need not done as scooter is in pretty good condition. When I insisted, on the foam cleaning, he said that its overkill at this stage and he’ll do it in next servicing.

On the oil strainer cleaning, after oil was drained, Mr. Bhaskar called me over, had a mechanic tilt the scooter to show scooter under-belly. He pointed to the oil strainer and said that it is clean. I insisted that it should be taken out and cleaned, what he said – I could not completely understand it. I could make out that it requires fine skills to do it and we’ll do it perhaps next time. He repeatedly assured me that it is in good condition. So I just shrugged and let it go.
Below is photo of oil strainer at belly bottom:

When I took delivery, the mirrors were so badly aligned. I asked Mr. Bhaskar to do the adjustment after I seated on scooter.

The total bill came to Rs 1366. The line item wise amount is as below
  1. Footrest Set: Rs 880
  2. Indicator Buzzer: Rs 100
  3. Idemitsu Engine Oil+Additive: Rs 220
  4. Consumables and GB Oil: 70
  5. Labour: Rs 100

If we remove the accessories, then my servicing cost would've been Rs 390.
My first servicing had costed Rs 289.

Friendly Neighbour Mechanic
I got the scooter by 11:30 and took it to friendly neighborhood garage. I asked them to clean the air filter. After the air filter was cleaned, there was hardly any visible difference between air filter before and after cleaning. My respect for Mr. Bhaskar’s credibility went few notches up after that.

Some pictures:

I paid Rs 70 to the mechanic and went home with a relative peace of mind.

I will put in a subsequent post which will cover some updates about me and scooter.

The paper element filter in the Suzuki access ( the yellow filter in the above image) is smeared with oil from the company itself. I was surprised that there was oil on it but it's the same with all these filters. The foam filter ( black one in the image above) just needs cleaning with petrol or mild detergent and water. Dry and use it again.
BTW why did you remove the entire air-box for cleaning? You just need to clean the filter elements and the box from within.
