Thoughts About Honda's Service Campaign For The Dio, The Activa 125, And The Activa 6G

We are impressed that Honda dedicates time and effort towards after sales service campaigns. Having said that, its twice now that Honda has initiated a service campaign for the Activa 125; and also twice within a months time. Maybe winning the race to BS6 brought with it a minor issue with quality control. Hopefully this won't turn into a ‘recall'.
