The pioneer of next generation Indian scootering, the Activa. Since its launch in 2001, the scooter is there as the leader of the country’s scooter world. No doubt, t is precisely the best selling scooter in India. It is from the home of Honda. Made in good quality, with better fuel inefficiency and enough power.

3. Vespa LX 125
Meet the beauty of Indian bi-wheelering. Loaded with Italian design, the LX125 gets tagged as the queen of roads. How can’t we look at once while an LX125 passes along the road. Yup, it’s a show stopper. The Vespa LX125 is known as the only premium scooter in India.
Design is its prior advantage. Quality, brand value, power, mileage and less maintenance follow it.
Heavy pricing, no front disc brake (at this price range there should have been), no digital meter console, looks small and hardly drivable for a tall and a fat guy.
4. Honda Aviator
A slightly upgraded scooter that stands just below the premium class. It gives a really comfortable ride. With better suspension and seating positing, the scooter never disappoints us. More interestingly, it has disc brake and it’s the only scooter to be equipped with disc brake in the Indian scooter industry.
Front disc brake, randed, dream mileage of 60 kmpl, less maintenance, high reliability, good resale value, worthy for money and one of the best scooters in India.
No digital meter console, design could have been better.

6. TVS Wego
The Wego is known for its body balance feature that helps both the rider and the pillion to keep the balance on. TVS Wego is been a good performer since its launch. The scooter has bagged several awards so far.

Starting trouble issues, engine noise, no digital meter.
7. Yamaha Ray
The debut scooter of Yamaha in the Indian shore. The scooter slightly resembles Honda Dio. It is mainly focussed on young women riders. The scooter is so smooth and easy to ride on. Perhaps, the best scooter to be driven in cities.
Looks, branded, fuel efficient, reliability, smooth, easy to handle
Less powered, no digital meter, looks like a copy cat of Honda Dio.
8. Hero Pleasure
From the home of Hero, world’s number one two wheeler company. That is enough to prove the capabilities of the Pleasure. Tagging “Why should boys have all the fun?,” the scooter offers a good experience to both men and women.
Branded, value for money, good resale value, low maintenance, powerful enough, a perfect city rider and fuel efficient too.
No digital meter, the back portion doesn’t look pleasing, Hero hasn’t done a huge modifications since its entry.
9. Hero Maestro
Seems to be the next generation version of Honda Activa. The scooter is mated with a digital display on board showcasing trip meter, fuel gauge and odometer. With good features, quality, mileage and looks, the scooter turns to be a good rival for Honda Activa.
Digital meter console, decent looks, comes with a refined Honda Activa engine, built in good quality, better mileage, power.
Seem like a real copy of the Activa, the scooter looks a bit bulgy.
10. Suzuki Swish 125
Obviously the sibling of the Access 125. The only difference is the design. The engine and all technical specifications are the same. Hence no worry to ride on the Swish, since the Access 125 has a well proven track record.
Good quality, branded, value for money, economical and an all-rounder performer on road.

Unfortunately Mahindra Duro DZ, the Rodeo RZ and the Scooty variants got out since the rank list is limited to only the top 10 scooters. It doesn’t mean that the Duro DZ, the Rodeo RZ, the Scooty Pep + and the Scooty Streek are imperfect, but as they are compared these scooters are slightly pulled back.
