As a consumer, what makes a good scooter? Many factors are taken into consideration such as fuel efficiency, weight, and other features. We look at the latest models of the Honda Activa 125, TVS NTorq 125, Yamaha Fascino 105 Fi Hybrid, and Mahindra Gusto to determine which one is the best choice for your needs. However, there are a few other important factors to consider as well.
Honda Activa 125
The Honda Activa 125 is a fantastic scooter for the money. It is equipped with advanced features such as LED headlamp, apron-mounted LED position lamps, and a new digital speedometer with extra fuel efficiency indicators and distance-to-empty indicator. The Honda Activa 125 also offers the latest safety features such as CBS (Continuous Bump Stop), ABS, and an electronic engine immobilizer.
The Activa 125 has similar suspension and ride setup as the BS4 Activa 124. The suspension is designed for maximum comfort and dampens road undulations, but wobbles a little around corners. It is not a sport scooter, but it still flattens the road and offers good handling at low speeds. Although it may not be the best scooter in the world, it still manages to be the best scooter in India for most people.
TVS NTorq 125
The TVS NTorq 125 is a good all-rounder that is great for beginners and those who want a scooter that gives a fun ride. The engine is great, and the scooter has good ergonomics. You will be able to ride your scooter with enthusiasm, and you will probably be the only person on the road on a TVS NTorq 125. This scooter is easily recognizable on city roads, and it has become a favorite among many users.
The TVS NTorq 125 has an impressive 124.79cc SOHC engine with 3 valves and produces 9.2 bhp at 7,500 rpm. It is a completely new unit that also features a CVTi transmission.

This makes the NTorq 125 a fantastic choice for beginners and those who need a scooter that will not break the bank.
Yamaha Fascino 125 Fi Hybrid

This scooter is equipped with a digital instrument console. It has speedometer, odometer, trip-meter, and rev counter.
