    Fact is, No Indian Scoot will give you, your outright acceleration and speed. All of the 100-125 CCs perform more or less similarly.
    I strictly find no difference between Vespa and Swiss, except the premium feel. If you want to stand out in the crowd of Activas and co, get the Vespa S in Orange.
    And we dont know your budget.

    Check out the recently launched Mahindra Rodeo Uzo 125, which has been advertised as one for performance enthusiasts.

    Swish 125 is very good in outright performance. Light weight and more power. Also try the Suzuki Let's if your body dimensions and weight is on the lighter side.

    Suzuki Swish shares its engine with the Access. Both have excellent acceleration in the Indian Scooter scenario. Swish is lighter though so could be slightly quicker. Vespa also has very good acceleration right up to 80kmph and will go on to do a 100kmph after a while. But remember Vespa is a premium product, so will cost more, spares will be slightly expensive and I also found the pillion seat a little cramped. The Suzuki scooters especially Access has very good pillion comfort. Activa 125 has adequate performance from what I have heard. Stay away from Mahindra scooters, poor mileage and service backup.
