    Also, reducing the weight of outer body cover will reduce the weight to negligible amount; cutting the seats will show hardly any results.
    Oops !! I was just guessing !!

    Already told my mech and his bro (having lining shop) to cut the foam of the seat.

    Lets c how it turns out... even changing the panels wont reduce the weight ? then where all the weight of the scoot hiding ?

    Chase and engine ? hmm... have to sit with mech to think of any unwanted parts.

    Here the pics of our Scoot...

    Dear Rajesh

    Why dont you try Changing Front suspension set of Activa to Telescopic suspension.
    front Mudguard is really heavy and dirctlly felt since its attached to handle bar .

    If you replace suspension set to telescopic set you will benefit
    1. Better suspention which is why all latest scooters prefer the same .
    2. light waight handle which will help your father to control the scooter in efficiant way.

    you may need to use fibre mudguard which may be very low in weight .

    whats say ...???

    Lol a reply after almost 4 years Adding my views here for anybody else who comes across similar dilemma's / ideas..

    The weight is the metal body.. the activa and dio have ditto same engine. If you want a nippier activa/dio change the roller weights and clutch springs .. that's the safest mod you can do on the scoots.
    Read about it here.. Tech Talk with Mo!

    Dont even think about touching the suspension.. its easier said than done !
    Btw a 125 cc activa will be launched shortly with telescopic front suspension.

    Just resurrecting this top coz im interested in this as well

    I own a 2013 Activa and my plans for modifying it are as follows

    1. Bodywork, removing dents and such

    2. Painting it all Metallic black with Orange stripes

    3. Give certain panels carbon fibre vinyling

    4. Custom exhaust, no too expensive branded ones, maybe something that costs 5k and less just to improve the sound

    5. Single HID Kit (the stock lights are just pure Shiz)

    6. Changing the Speedo with a custom one if its available (the stock had issues now)

    7. I got a sweet plan with the Body guards like wrapping it in a relatively think layer of foam or sponge and wrap that around with something a tape like material that resembles duct tape or electrical tape so that they can stretch on impact without showing any visible tears. The reason for foam or sponge is so that when the guard actually the hits the body panel, it doesnt scrape off the paint

    8. As for wheels and stuff I am not sure, might keep them stock not much point changing them.
