sorry to disagree but what i have seen lately is that activa has taken over the market as a perfect unisex gearless scooter where people from teenagers to elderly ones prefers this vehicle, which has good looks, honda ass, good pickup, spacious seats and underseat storage with decent FE and good ride.Dio, i havent seen much of its share in market rather avaitor is much more successful then dio as far as sales are concerned.

I didn't like the new dio at all. It totoally sucks in my opinion. The rear looks exactly like a scooty pept or so. The previous dio was far better in looks.
This will surely effect the sales coz all the dio's are mostly driven by youngsters who are behind looks. They will not prefer this & this could effect the sales.
