    Rodeo is good and it is nothing but Flyte. My wife has been using the Flyte for the past 2 years. No problems. Build quality is not great compared to Honda, but in general is good.

    • Easy and Zippy ride and excellent handling. The puny looks do not intidimate girls and they love it.
    • The leargest underseat storage (25 L) with lamp
    • Front Fuelling system (petrol tank in the floor board)
    • Smooth and refined 125cc engine, and excellent torque.
    • Front telescopic forks.
    • Key hole shutter
    The negatives of the Rodeo
    • Low mileage (expect around 40 kmpl in city)
    • Low ground clearance (Underbelly touches even the normal speedbrakers with pillion), a very big drawback.
    • Shoddy aftersales.
    You can give a look at Suzuki Access.

    • Class leading torqey 125cc engine, smooth and refined. Excellent pick up and the best in class (0-60 in 8 sec)
    • Excellent build quality
    • Overall good handling (but not as great as Aviator)
    • Nice underseat storage (22L)
    • 6.3L fuel tank
    • Key hole shutter
    • Looks really bland and outdated
    • Low mileage due to bigger engine (40-42kmpl in city)

    to confuse you more.. ladies generally prefer TVS.. they are lightest of all and quite girlish too.. if it's not a surprise gift, finalize the best technology wise and let her take a test ride..

    if travel is pretty limited one, electric scooty is a good option.. no tension of fuel, registration and licence

    The engine is from Taiwan-based SYM. This company is the number one scooter maker in the world. It gives life time warranty to its engines (not in India)

    If mileage is more important, close your eyes and go for New Activa.

    I do not think Access has 3 months waiting period now. In Hyderabad either readily avialable or just a week waiting period. Access is not in demand now due to its bland looks and everybody is after New Activa and that is creating a huge waiting period for Acvia. Just because of dealer, you cannot shy away from a product. Anyway after buying you will not interact with them again.

    Thanks for the correction. I didn't know Kinetic partnered with Taiwanese.

    Initially they partnered with Italian company 'Italjet' and produced the Kinetic Blaze (partner only for designs). Kinetic was in line to lauch other designs from Italjet, but put the plan off and made a joint venture with SYM and the first product was Sym Flyte. The same engine is currently being used in Rodeo as well as Duro.

    If the waiting period is less, go for the new Dio. It looks awesome with the new graphix. Build quality is better than Pleasure.
