    So far so good no niggles as of now(clocked 240+ km), pickup is awesome mileage initial I was getting over 66😂 Which has dropped down to the sensible 50s, the headlight is pretty good I can say after quite a bit of night riding, the seat is probably the biggest I have sat on till date and the most comfortable, brakes are pretty good and it's quite a head turner whenever I stop at red light😎. But the suspension could have been better if I compare it with bikes but as a scooter all are the same when you hit a big pothole 😂 I'll enquire if it is possible to make the front just a little soft but that might compromise high speed stability. Will keep posted in the ownership thread as it needs some revival 😂
    I will be going in for the 1st service around 20th -25th of this month and then can answer ur service related queries but that varies from place to place I feel

    Nope i didn't consider Aprilia as access has almost all the things better then the Aprilia. 10k less cost, 50ish mileage, little softer suspension, vespa kind of looks, big seats, more leg room, can eat my full face helmet, refined engine, for a 5'11 guy like me Aprilia would not look great on me( my personal opinion about not looking great). The only thing access Misses out is the Aprilia branding, little performance and a 14' rims. I don't think anyone will take a Aprilia to the race track or will be touring on it. Soo for that purpose I'll have to buy a bigger bike anyway. I would love to go for a joy ride on Aprilia but not own one 😀

    I know! The trailing link type suspension on the Activa 3G is horrible on bumpy roads. One thing that I have observed is that on a telescopic suspension set up, while braking at higher speeds the front part of the scooter dives a lot, scary at times. I don't know about you but I tend to use a lot of front brakes (60:40 rule). Which ironically in Activa 3G although its uncomfortable its not that significant.
    Coming to the accessories, I got the stainless steel guard installed for 1800 including taxes from the Honda ASC as it wasn't available outside. Avoid the cheap black painted guard as the paint will get chipped off and eventually will look rusted and ugly. If you use the scooter a lot at nights you may want to replace the stock headlamps. Its wide and scattered beam is useless on highways during nights. Activa 3G comes with Phoenix 12v 35/35w set up. (Phoenix Lamps Limited ( Formerly known as Halonix Limited )). A Philips/Osram would do. The stock horn is a joke. Its useless while you're riding in the city. I definitely recommend an upgrade. I also recommend getting a mat for the foot board because during monsoons you will thank yourself for not having to deal with all the mud and dirt over the stock mat. Cheap ones are available in the market. I stayed away from the Teflon coating/under body anti-rust coating as its costly. The dealer will push you a lot for getting this done. That's all.
