Thanks to Indian Two Wheeler market’s ever evolving state, geared motorcycles currently have a huge predominance in the industry. However, not so long ago, till the advent of the current millennium, scooters were the driving force of our Two Wheeler market. Many of you are likely to remember models like the Bajaj Chetak and the LML Select, two scooters that dotted our roads back then. Now, however, geared scooters have little market and have been succeeded by modern non-gear scooters. While these scooters don’t enjoy a dominance over geared motorcycles, they do have a major contribution in the overall sales. Not only this, models like the Honda Activa repeatedly manage to outsell bikes in the same price bracket. Here, in this post, we have come up with a list of best scooter in India from every segment.
Best Scooter in India 2017 – Honda Activa 4G
|Engine||109cc, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, 8 BHP-9 Nm|
|Top Speed||82 KMPB|
The Honda Activa has been the undisputed leader of automatic scooter industry. Thanks to a frugal yet sufficiently punchy engine, high reliability and a comfortable seat, the Activa has a huge fan following. On sale for Rs 50,730, the Activa 4G comes across as a value-for-money proposition.
Best Scooter in India 2017 – TVS Jupiter
|Engine||109.7cc, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, 7.88 BHP-8 Nm|
|Top Speed||82 KMPH|
The TVS Jupiter comes across as a rather sportier alternative to the Honda Activa. While it has most of the qualities of the Activa, it’s also more fun to ride. No, we aren’t talking about a sportsbike rivaling performance here, but for its segment, the Jupiter is a really peppy ride.
Best Scooter in India 2017 – TVS Scooty Zest
|Engine||109.7cc, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, 7.9 BHP-8.7 Nm|
|Top Speed||82 KMPH|
While the TVS Jupiter targets both the sexes, the Scooty Zest aims to please the female clientele. While the Zest shares its engine with the Zest, it ends up feeling more energetic due to the lower weight. Also, its design is such that the fairer sex, especially the younger lot, finds it to be fairly attractive. With a claimed fuel mileage of 62 KMPL, it’s frugal, too.
Best Scooter in India 2017 – Suzuki Access 125
|Engine||124 cc, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, 8.40 BHP-10.20 Nm|
|Top Speed||92 KMPH|
The Suzuki Access 125 has to be our pick in the 125cc scooter segment. The 125cc Access has a grunty motor and likable bits like telescopic front shock absorbers. Also, its design has a unisex appeal. In spite of a powerful engine, it has a peak mileage of 58 KMPL. The Access 125 has to be the best 125cc scooter in India.
Best Scooter in India 2017 – Aprilia SR 150
|Engine||154.4 cc, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, 11 BHP-11.50 Nm|
|Top Speed||95 KMPH|
In our books, the Aprilia SR 150 has to be the best scooter in India! Not only this, the SR 150 is the easiest way to own an Aprilia. True, it’s got just a 11 BHP engine, but peppiness and sharp handling should keep you happy. Also, only a 150cc engine will ensure that the fuel bills never get too high. The SR 150 is easily the most ‘gearless fun’ you can have without burning a big hole in your pocket.
