Default Re: KTM Duke 200 vs Vespa LX 125 vs Hero Maestro

Wanted to buy the KTM but realized that I wont be using it for more than 1 kms daily; it would be an absolute pity for the vehicle as it would spend more time standing than being used.

My wifey's Bday is on 20th of this month, so going ahead with a Vespa LX 125. Requested my admin to try and get the delivery by 12th or latest by 19th of this month.

The reason for going in for this despite having a Dio are as follows:
  • Bigger tires - so, better ride and grip
  • 8 Litre fuel tank - Better travelling distance.
  • Bling bling factor - appealing to women folks.
Dio has been faithfully doing it's duty but I would like to move ahead with something that is more comfortable for wifey. Vespa is something that both she and me can ride; if I would have listened to my heart and gone ahead with KTM, it would have been an unfair decision.

Hopefully, Dio will find a good home soon; watchout for the classified section in the coming days

Thank you for your honest views.
