Don't make that mistake dude, Kinetic is not at all reliable now a days. They just keep on bringing on different models and can't sell any of them. Their sales and service is simply pathetic.

Its been 3 yrs that I bought a GF170 and was very happy at the time. But now no parts are available, not even a accelerator cable. Can you imagine? Not to mention the quality of all the parts is also pathetic.

I will never recommend any one to buy a Kinetic product again.

Dio = Customizable , stylish Looks - rear passenger comfort + easy driving

Activa = Can't change the looks + rear passenger comfort + ok driving comfort compared to dio ( while taking turns)

So
If only one person is riding almost all the time + plans to change the panels for 2 tone color dio is the answer.

Else

Activa.

But please do not for anything else than these two.

i am owning Activa for more than five years, the one issue really sucks is the mileage, i never got beyond 35kms per ltr, secondly tyres life in activa is very less compared to other scooters

tushky, Dio will give 40 kmpl consistently and Activa will give you 42 kmpl. Thats my observation on a 2002 Activa and a 2005 Dio.

Its the same engine as Dio and Activa. I think Dio and Activa both look better and bigger than Pleasure.

Dio is lighter than Activa. My wife can set Dio on the center stand but she can't easily set Activa on center stand.
