    Honda Dio is not 110 cc, it is just 102 cc (engine is not upgraded in the new version). I have a question for you, did you ride Avaitor any time?

    I have a good experience with all the scooter you mentioned. My order would be

    1. Aviator 110cc (the best looking and best handling scooter of the lot)
    2. Activa 110 cc
    3. Honda Dio
    4. HH Pleasure.

    For a boy, the Aviator looks superb and buy it and you start loving.

    Why did I rate Aviator the best?

    • It has got the best handling and ride quality (No jolts to handle bar even in potholes like other scooters) because of excellent, high quality front telescopic forts. The bigger front wheel allows you take quick turns with great stability.
    • The riding position is excellent and commanding.
    • The seat is wide enough to carry a pillion very comfortably.
    • Big floor board allows you to carry many luggage, including a 20L water can (for example)
    • The 22L underseat storage engulfs a big half-face helmet easily and has more space to carry things.
    • 6L fuel tank.
    • Above all, unmatched build quality.

    What's the purpose of buying the scooter? Buy something based on the requirement & not for just the sake of it.

    To begin with, just go through this thread & some of the pros & cons of scooters are discussed to death - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/what-bik...ught-week.html

    Since I do not know when you intend to purchase, you can alternatively consider - http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/news/115...years-end.html

    Good Luck

    I thought the scooter is for you and that is why I suggested Aviator. Aviator has high seating position and it is difficult for avarage women's hight (of couse, I have seen many a lady on Aviator).

    Activa is the best then, but the waiting peiod would be no less than 3 months. The 110cc of Activa has 15% more mileage than previous 102 cc engine and you can expect mileage between 47-52 kmpl depending on riding conditions.

    Pleasure is a good choice for ladies, but it is still the old 102 cc engine. same case with Dio. The new Dio looks super sexy with cool graphix. I guess the Dio also has around 1-2 months waiting period.

    Ok, since its for a girl again, its best to go in for Pleasure or Scooty or Access in my opinion. Again, back to requirements, depending upon how much weight she can handle, expected features & budget settle in for Aviator/new Activa.

    Mileage one can expect anything from 50-55 on very sane rides & well maintained.

    Good Luck

    That's interesting. Where're you from? 2 months back when I enquired about Activa's availability they said a week in Chennai. Not sure now though. Eventually he went in for Access.

    Rodeo, not sure, but I wish one for myself It comes with a good set of features that are way above Indian scooters. Since its a reputation of Kinetic, I've my own doubts, however, the engine's roots are from Italy which sounds OK.
