    Mahindra Flyte/TVS Scooty should be available in pink. Flyte is a better bet, weighs about same as Scooty, it's got a good 125cc engine. But i'm not sure good service backup at your place as it's Mahindra.

    Get her to agree to 125 CC scooter. I have recently purchased TVS Wego. Good scooter, does lots of errands but whenever me & my friend sits on it, it somehow feels bit underpowered.
    Don't go for scooty, pep etc

    for you i have 3 products in my mind=new dio,suzuki swish,tvs wego.
    i am more inclined towards wego.
    but check out swish,someone here had same question ,i suggested him to take a testride of swish and wego,he and his wife felt swish was better and booked it.
    and the question remains why do i race?
    every finishing line is the begining of a new race.

    I don't know about TVS's service, but going with the VFM factor, I see WEGO has lot of positive reviews coming out. Don't know which city you're from, but their ASC's should be within the reach.

    Scooter will be run less, my take. So, wear & tear would be less too. For that, TVS service is OK. If he is planning for major kms in a month then definitely some other manufacturer.

    Do also give the Mahindra Rodeo a look. I don't know what FE it gives since my Bhabhi (Sister in law) has only managed to reach 1500km after 2 full years (with some sizeable contributions from me) and I frankly don't care what FE it returns as long as 100 bucks of petrol lasts like a month.

    Why do I recommend it? Primarily for its practicality and zippyness:
    1. There is a humongous storage space beneath the seat which is enough to fit 1.5 helmets (1 for bhabhi 0.5 for my 5 year old nephew) + other stuff like water bottles + vehicle papers. This space is definitely among the largest in segment.
    2. It has a mobile charging spot in the storage area.
    3. There is a light in the storage area.
    4. You don't need to get off the scooter to refuel (== added convenience for ladies).
    5. The scooter is zippy, brakes are decent, tire grip is adequate. It does 0-60 on speedo in 5.2 seconds with 80kg of my bulk loaded on it (There is a 0-60 timer on board which I used for this timing).

    The thing with Mahindra 2Wheelers is that every alternate service is free (i.e. 1st, 3rd, 5th etc. are free), even services are paid. But considering the extremely low mileage done by our scooter, I cannot comment on long term reliability. What I can say however is it always starts in 1 crank even if it is parked for weeks at a time. The Sym 125cc engine is also quite smooth in operation.

    So, if the scooter will be doing only extremely short distances, there is no harm in any scooter as long as it is practical and zippy. If however the mileages involved are higher than 500km/month, you might want to look at the more fuel efficient ones amongst the ones available in the market. So This Spreadsheet should help you in finding which has the best FE.

    Happy Shopping

    Advice is a form of nostalgia.
    Dispensing it is a way of fishing the past from the disposal, wiping it off, painting over the ugly parts and recycling it for more than it's worth.
