    If you think Jupiter or Wego is too heavy then go for TVS Zest...

    Reliability?.... Then definitely Jupiter is the best.
    But why not look into other Suzuki scooters.
    Access or swish??
    I have driven them and they are good to balance too.

    My vote goes for Jupiter.
    2 years & 3 months of ownership- 29000 kms. No issue at all. Most comfortable scooter in its segment. According to me, only scooter better than Jupiter is new Access 125cc. If service center of Suzuki is good in your area, I will suggest you to take test ride of Access as well, though you will loose some FE, in favour of Power.

    Today I got a chance to ride a one month old Jupiter. It was a wonderful ride......Have to ride Wego as Jupiter feels heavy & Driver seat feels high for short persons

    If you ask me, I will go for Ray Z just by its looks...Looks better than the rest of the field. But practicality is important here. I guess the 2017 Ray Z has telescopic suspension with Disc brakes at the front. Leg space needs to be considered. I guess Jupiter scores better in that. You can still find enough leg room inspite of keeping luggage in the front.

    Since she has shrunk her options to those 2, I am not sure about Wego , I haven't driven one. Somebody else can pitch in their views.

    Both are good , but my personal preference is ray, I haven't ridden the new wego with the improved engine but the old one was not so joy to ride even if it gives good rider balance.
    Ask her why she don't like Jupiter, if it is the bulky size it is not a problem , Jupiter feels like a scooty with more power and comfort on the move.
    Also take proper test rides before zeroing down.

    Suzuki Access is lighter than Ray and Jupiter, the performance is amazing.
    Best scooter out there.
    Get your wife a test ride and decide.


    Cheers!

    1.Front Telescopic suspension
    2.110 CC
    3.Good handling
    4.Reliability
    5.Comfortable(especially backbone friendly)
    6.Suitable for ladies(5'5' height')

    Due to the priority No.1&2, I have short listed the following vehicles

    1.Yamaha RayZ
    2.Hero Maestro Edge
    3.TVS Jupiter
    4.TVS Wego

    Please help me in selecting the most comfortable & reliable one from the list suitable for my wife...please..
    My approach in this area is different. When selecting a scooter for your better half, don't go by technology alone. Consider factors such as, Storage space, mobile charger, whether you want fuel cap under the seat or outside. Since it shall be used solely by your wife, you should consider one who has service centres nearest to your house so should the need ever arise for her to take the bike to service centre herself (or call for breakdown assistance ever) then that shall be easier and faster. Other than that Colors' option too would matter I suppose.

    Other than that, all scoters are quite reliable these days as long as you service them in time.

    New Wego shares the same engine with Jupiter... So the engine performance should be same... What about comfort...?
