Yamahas are excellent bikes. I have owned many both on the Indian subcontinent and the U.S. But I have never understood Yamaha India's penchant (and marketing oversight) for not accessorizing their bikes and scooters. These days it is very important and could very well be a competitive edge for others not to buy other vehicles but yamaha. With the advent of the tvs’s ntorq 125, to use this example, it set new standards and increased sales. Yet yamaha couldn't even begin to match the new features and accessories that made this model so popular at the same price!The upside of this scooter is great ride ability, turning, acceleration, smoothness, quietness, responsiveness, seating comfort, and fuel economy, which I get from 48--51 km/l.But yamaha, at the same price as the ntorq, couldn’t even begin to match, for example, the ntorq.No handle brakes, lock for safety, so the scooter rolls if not on an absolutely level surface. And already my new scooter has fallen over once. • no rear tyre mud cover to prevent mud from throwing on pillion.• no clock. • no bluetooth connectivity. • no modern switches. • no led headlight and turn signals. • no under-the-seat light. • no turn signal warning buzzer. • no four-way flasher. • no 12” rear wheel. • no attractive silencer. • no ladies foot stand. • no storage in front apron. • no adequate foot room for tall drivers.• no brightly lit instrument cluster.• no attractive body stickers. (what does “standard gear” mean and why would you consider this appealing? Further, there are also these issues:1. With a pillion the bike felt less stable, the total passenger weight overcomes the light weight of the scooter itself. 2. Front disc brake is spongy3. Overly chunky design could be more streamlined.4. Seat fits sloppy, not well designed.5. Need better tyre design with better traction, certainly and ideally with bigger wheels.6. Stop & start system mostly a nuisance, as engine turns off too quickly when having no intention for long stopping wait period. I just usually turn it off.If one is not interested in accessories and features, then it is a good city scooter, especially for its great fuel economy and its light weight, which provides ease of handling and faster speed. Other than this, better look elsewhere.
