Looking to buy a scooter for local commute. Shortlisted Activa 6g and Access 125. Please provide your inputs. Is Jupiter worth considering. As I have the habit of discounts from DD, what bargains should I ask the dealer and the best discounts.

Please help.

Access 125 if u want more pickup and power
Activa for resale value

And seems no discount from dealer maybe 500-1000 rs if possible instead of getting free accessories tell him to give cash discount or check paytm offer combine with bank offer

best to go with activa 125…service of honda is good..and if you are not satisfied…there are usually 2-3 honda showrooms in tier 2 and 3 cities….service of suzuki is not that good…only good product they get sales of is access 125….its good but has fair share of reliabilty problems service issue is also there

Are electric scooters safe during rains and flooded roads? Rider will not get electrocuted naa? Or short-circuit problem?

I don’t have in depth knowledge but I guess most scooters are safe. But confirm from dealer or online before buying one

1. Access or Jupiter if you plan to keep it till End of life (WIll say Jupiter as truly Indian)
2. Activa if you plan to sale it off in next 5-7 years.

No such issues
Battery is generally kept at higher place under seat and no exhaust so no issue with low waters

Access engine has to rebuild at 42000 km for a relative while Activa goes to 80-90000 km without any issues.

Can you elaborate more? How they are cheating?

No innovation, no fine work, very less features. They are just charging a premium for brand value.

For example, for years they avoided telescopic front suspension until recently, n the miniature Earl’s forks they gave were made without taking any interest in them. You can see the signs of welding on them. If you compare this shitty job with older Chetak, Vespa ones, Honda Activa ll run n hide with shame.
Competitors have done extremely good job with their products.

Truee! And i will probably sue them some day as keys of one active will start some other activa! Don’t know if it’s same for newer versions but a lot of incidents when activa’s get exchanged outside banks and similar places!
Zero innovation and they have almost doubled prices in 5 years!

Thanks everyone for your response.
Listing down some of the reasons why I bought Access 125 instead of Activa 125:

1. Performance: Have checked a lot of video reviews and most of them mentioned Access is better on performance
2. Larger Seat: Access has a large seat and Pillion riding was one of my priorities
3. Larger leg room: Access has a larger leg room to keep goods
4. Larger Bootspace: Access has a boot space of about 21 liters which is very big
5. Suspension: The telescopic suspension on Access is a bit stiff which gives better ride quality as suggested by one of my friends who bought Access 125
6. Milege: Better mileage

Some of the features missing in Access 125:

1. Engine Idling: One of the must have features
2. Parking Lights: Good to have
3. Brake Lock: Good to have
4. Fuel Tank lock at the front: Could have (not essential)
