Hi friends,

I want to gift my sister a scooter on her birthday coming in few days. I know that Honda activa is most popular, but just want to make sure I choose the one which is best in this category in terms of mileage, features, strength, ease of driving, etc. I see lot of advertisement of maestro edge recently on TV, and I see on net that it offers a 5yr warranty as against 2yrs for activa 4g.

Pls can you fellow dimers help me choose the right scooter for my sister? My budget is around 60k on road.

Activa 4G perhaps the best choice, service, usage, ease
Suzuki swish 125 also was good but servicing is pain with lack in number of service centers

If your sister is slim and budget is fine=> prefer vespa (more style, and ladies prefer style than muscle scooter like Activa or Jupiter) otherwise Jupiter.

Tvs Jupiter is better compared to Activa 4g, bigger wheelers, big boot for helmets, books, handbags and telescopic suspension (Activa 125 CC have telescopic suspension, not in 4G), price of jupiter is some 8k lesser than Activa, but more features, due to our road condiion, bigger wheels (12 inch) and telescopic suspension is must.

Offtopic:
All guys recommend activa, because in older times (before 5-6 years) we dont have other option, but still Activa not updated much, Also Activa 125 CC front wheel is 12 inch, back wheel is still 10 inch (Activa 125 is much costly than 4G)

Still Activa 125 got telescopic suspension, but rear suspension ? not updated much, in Jupiter you get gas filled one
Activa – Not worth the price – more marketing, less features.

Test drive both scooter, you will feel the difference, not in highway or smooth road.

Bekow chart show you how indians are brandholic :

Marketing and brand speaks the number, but still jupiter got the second position, TVS engines are reliable like Honda engine, even BMW bikes will be manufactured by TVS soon and launched in TVS showroom itself

yes exactly
and it looks more stylish than any other
and has many xtra features than any other scooter plus 6 free services which is only given by them and no other company gives 6 free services . so you are tension free for almost 1.5-2 years

Wrong info regarding Jupiter in general. Exceptions are always there. I can say Jupiter is the best in class scooter after using Activa, Jupiter, Maestro & Swish.
My Ratings:
1. TVS Jupiter
2. Maestro Edge
3. Honda Activa
4. No Swish. It’s Horrible.

It’s a refined engine nothing else. Initially when the brand split happened and Hero launched Maestro, the engines were supplied by Honda itself like they did for Ignitor before the brand split. Later on Hero itself started manufacturing the engine and refined the engine a bit to create less noise with better mileage.

I have not used hero for long time but reading reviews here you got plenty choice.
Activa vs Maestro vs Jupiter
Just keep servicing part in mind
Else your sister or you have to take pain of service center if it’s away
.
Activa has many service centers
Suzuki has that disadvantage, though not for me as I had one nearby, I saw many coming from far away, plus time crunch at that only center

Choose between jupiter or activa. But dont buy jupiter ZX and activa 125 models . Maestro edge makes extra loud noise. Pickup also not so good as compare to both

Thanks all for valuable comments. I will test drive tvs Jupiter and also assess feasibility in terms of service. Which model of Jupiter should I consider

I would recommend a TVS Jupiter. It’s a very practical and comfortable scooter . I bought one 5 months back and I was so satisfied with it the I bought a second one for my father in law. The new dark green colour looks very nice.before buying, Please make sure your sister takes a test ride of Jupiter. Seat height of Jupiter is on the higher side and short riders below 5 feet 5 may find it difficult to plant their feet on the road while riding Jupiter.
