    Default Need help, Buying a scooter

    Hello, I am a xbhp follower since an year, Currently owning a CB Twister (2011)

    I am planning to buy a scooter now,

    Main requirements:

    Good mileage (40-50kmpl)
    Better ride quality.
    Long term reliability (Minimum 6 years).
    Good service and maintenance.

    After all the research, I have decided to choose between Aviator, Activa 125 and Jupiter

    Spoke with 3 people who own Access 125,
    Everyone had mileage issues!

    I tried Activa 4G, The ride was fine, smooth engine, good build.. but the pickup wasn't that good and the suspension was bad especially the front!

    Jupiter: Better ride than Activa 4G, Rear suspension is really good, smooth but not as refined as Activa.. I am only concerned about build quality and maintenance.

    I will take a test ride of Aviator and Activa 125 in a few days....

    So Folks,

    Which bike will be a better option when considering all my requirements?

    Please do suggest, Thank you 😊

    I am also planning to buy the scooter on Honda exchange program, will the showroom pay a good price for my Twister?
