    Post Help me to select the best bike (Scooter)-tvs, honda, hero, suzuki, mahindra

    Hi Friends/xbhp team,

    This is my first post in our xbhp. (Thanks Xbhp team for approving me).

    Friends - Kindly help me to pick the best one also share your experiences, suggestions and opinions.

    I am planning to buy a First bike in my life (scooter model). I have many confusions to select the best scooter available in the market now.

    I have below concerns to be taken into consideration.

    1) Should have a good engine and it must have a good long term life.
    2)Good Mileage
    3)Easy Maintanence and readily available spare parts at low cost.
    4)Suggest metal/fibre body.

    Available Choices:
    1) TVS Jupiter
    2)TVS WEGO
    3)Honda Activa 3G
    4)Suzuki Access 125
    5)Suzuki swish 125
    6)Suzuki lets
    7)Suzuki all new access 125
    8)Hero Maestro Edge (hero's own engine first time launced)
    9)Hero Duet(hero's own engine first time launced)
    10)Hero Maestro
    11)Mahindra gusto (110/125 cc)

    I have not considered Yamaha alone as it was a engine and better performance but still it has below average mileage and spare parts price was high.

    Friends/xbhp team I am waiting for your valuable feedback, own experience and suggestions from you.

    Thanks in advance.

    Why no Yamaha? Yamaha has wonderful scooters in their line up.. The Ray, RayZ and Fascino..

    I got my wife a RayZ.. I have munched more miles on it than she has.. It is light weight and easy to nimble.. Power is best in class thanks to its light weight.. My suggestion, test ride the scoots mentioned in your list..

    Honda Activa is the most selling scooter from long since it is launched. Availability of spares is not a problem with that model. Please go for Honda / Hero for easy maintenance and readily available spare parts.Suzuki & Mahindras scooters are good but not very popular.TVS Jupiter & Wego are very good scooters from TVS. All customers are happily riding without any problem. Wego has got full metal body I guess.As rreneav1987 mentioned Yamahas scooters are good. Now a days with Blue Core technology, Yamaha vehicles performs better along with decent mileage. Fascino is fantastically designed and has got a classic retro looks.

    Hi sir, Thanks for your valuable suggestion. Yes Yamaha is also doing good with performance and mileage but I guess spare parts and service are bit costly. Correct me if I am wrong. Thanks again.

    Hi prasanth, Thanks for the detailed update. Yes Honda is king of scooter but it is lacking in some features that TVS and Suzuki can give for the same price.
    Thanks again for your valuable update.

    The new Wego and new Access 125 are superb. I have ridden the old wego and I really liked it. Suspension on the wego is brilliant. Also the new color scheme with matte grey paintjob, blue decals and black alloys looks sporty! Maestro edge also has a host of features, do check it once. Go through the maestro edge ownership thread here on xBhp. Test ride all the scoots and then decide buddy. Keep us updated.

    To be Honest, I haven't had to change any spare part till now. Besides, Yamaha has long lasting spares and possibly that's the reason they cost you a little more (I am not sure as well about the cost)

    BTW, your budget?

    Sorry for late reply..

    You can read some reviews of different scooters here:

    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/motorcyc...periences.html

    http://www.xbhp.com/talkies/motorcyc...hero-duet.html

    I have driven TVS Wego for the last one year - no doubt good scooter. Latest Wego comes with CBS which still missing in Tvs Jupiter.

    If you are looking /giving more importance to latest features, then go for Hero Duet or Hero Maestro Edge.

    Before buying Maestro Edge, I did a comparison of features in Jupiter and Edge and finally settled with Edge (extra features on Edge - Side stand on warning, External fuel filling with flap cover, immobilizer, Integrated Breaking, Digi-analog Console, Ignition switch control for opening Seat cover as well as Fuel filling flap cover. Also, Boot lamp & USB port comes with VX variant whereas in Jupiter these two are optional and one has to get it as an extra accessory?)

    Also suggest you to test drive couple of models and take a decision (ofcourse I did not test drive any scooters so far but purchased them after reading many reviews and ownership experience).

    +1 to the above post.
    Maestro Edge seems the most logical choice.
    I would like to thank my legs for supporting me, my arms for being always by my side and my fingers; I could always count on them.
