The Suzuki Burgman Street goes where no other scooter has gone in the Indian market. Well, unless you count the long-discontinued Kinetic Blaze. The Burgman is a maxi scooter but not in every sense of the word. It derives inspiration from its sibling, the Burgman 400, which is a 400cc scooter whose size rivals most middleweight cruisers. The Burgman Street is based on the Access chassis and driveline, which means peppy performance for a 125cc. It gets LED lighting all around, and a front disc brake with a combined brake system is standard.
The Honda Grazia is to the Dio what the Activa 125 is to the regular Activa. It occupies a space alongside the Activa 125 that caters to the younger generation. The focus of the scooter is on generating more excitement rather than focusing on practicality. As such, it gets aggressive styling with ‘motoscooter’ looks, and a host of features like LED headlamps and a twin digital instrument cluster that also includes a feature we haven’t seen on a scooter since the Kinetic Blaze – a tachometer!
The Scooty Pep was launched in 2003, and its upgraded version is the Scooty Pep Plus. The Scooty brand is geared towards women riders with a focus on small size and light weight, to make it easy to handle.
The TVS Ntorq 125 is the firm’s first upmarket offering in the scooter segment. It pulls out all the stops to ensure the Ntorq customer has the maximum bragging rights of them all. It gets a features list that rivals the Honda Grazia – along with the obvious, you also get a clock, average speed, top speed recorder, lap timer, and service and helmet reminders. There is no non-disc brake variant of the Ntorq at this moment; all get a 230mm front disc brake. It also gets a charging socket in the boot and a boot lamp, and an engine kill switch. The engine oil temperature is also on display, and there is an app-enabled parking locator as well as Bluetooth technology that helps it pair with Android phones. This is also the only scooter to get an engine with a three-valve head. It generates 9.3bhp and 10.5Nm and has a claimed top speed of 95kph.
The Suzuki Access 125 is the flagship commuter model in the company’s scooter lineup. Apart from revising the chassis and powertrain, Suzuki has retained the universally appealing but slightly bland looks for the Access.
The TVS Jupiter is a 110cc scooter that competes with the Honda Activa. Of course, as with all TVS products, it delivers better value than the industry standard, and it also manages a dash of style with certain variants like the MillionR.
It may be the highest-selling two-wheeler in the Indian market, but Honda hasn’t stopped the evolution of the Activa. The latest set of updates that make up the 5G are more than merely cosmetic. The front apron gets chrome accents, but the LED headlamp will draw your attention first. The top-spec Deluxe variant even gets a digital display below the analogue speedometer; it now shows the fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter and a clock in the digital part of the instrument cluster. The Activa 5G also gets the new ignition key slot from the Grazia, which has the provision for the seat release.
