Honda scooters are best. But nowadays they have huge waiting list. I know some people who are waiting for their Activa for more than 4 months and no update when they will get it.

According to me HH Pleasure and TVS Wego are equally good as both are easy to ride, easy to maintain, FE around 40 kmpl.

Dio has very bad comfort.
Buy it only because of its looks, or if you want a sporty scooter.

Thanks. I am more interested in the last 4 of the list.
Btw what about Suzuki Access? I see so many here and its quite popular with girls too.

Oh. I didnt know that. Comfort is priority. Also we are not much inclined towards Dio courtesy long waiting periods.

Akash, ask your friend to ride avaitor once, if she is fine with the height and weight of this scooter then its much better ride then activa, havent driven access but is doing good in market as well.Tvs offered new scooters and a friend owned one few days back, not sure which one would get back to you after knowing her feedback.

As of now, i want to have views on the Suzuki Access. I have gone through many ownership reviews of the same to find the satisfaction levels of the users quite high.
From what gears says, there is a long wait for the Activa too.
Yes, Arkin, Hondas have long waiting periods, but that wont be an issue. There are ways to get it off the queue.

my first priority will be the activa(if you are able to jump the long waiting periods). else go for the access(but too noisy engine and not as refined as the honda). i would never recommend any other vehicle.
and regarding the dio, it sucks big time when it comes to comfort. take my words as i own one.

Any other issue with Suzuki Access other than engine noise.

Have 2 things in your list:
Activa
Access

Activa if you can avoid waiting period else Access is the best option. [:)]

* Honda Activa = Bad A.S.S. they think they rule the world
* Honda Dio = bad comfort
* Suzuki Access = bad FE
* Hero Honda Pleasure = good comfort, good FE, Good A.S.S
* TVS Wego = has been a failure in the market already, forget it. TVS = niggling issues
* Mahindra Duro = a decent all round scooter, excels in nothing.


My order: Pleasure > Duro > Access > Activa
