Wego was available off the shelf 2 months ago. So guessing it should be available in a month. Not sure about Aviator. Access had a waiting period of 3-6 months depending on the color of your choice.

Thanks for you inputs guys. B.I.L picked up TVS Access for Rs 49,250.

He found it more comfortable, and was available immediately.

Great.. Congrats to your B.I.L. Its surprising that Access was available immediately as there is a wait period of minimum 3 months here in Bangalore. Did he pull any strings to get delivery at once?

I suppose you mean Suzuki Access. TVS makes the Wego.

Congrats to your B.I.L.-the Access is a nice scooter.

I'm surprised to see that Suzuki access is available immediately. I had spoken to a dealer in Chennai a month back and he insisted it to be 6 months.

I own a Honda Activa and it's a breeze to drive in traffic compared to motorcycles with gear, but buy only if your regular route is smooth roads. It's a pain to drive it in potholed or uneven roads. As the tyres are small and conventional shock absorbers are not there, all the vibrations and jerks get transmitted to your hands and back.
I use it mainly for short shopping trips to nearby shops as the storage spaces are of immense help.

I do own an aviator, its good to ride with higher sitting position than activa and comfortable seats, I find it comfortable for little long commute and very good on handling as it has bigger front tyre with hydrolic shocks. Any way test drive it first to check whether your are confortable driving it, If you are bit short of 5' 5" then check its sitting position, also see whether legs reach to groud easily or not.

http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...ml#post2253309 (Honda Activa vs TVS Wego. We went with the Wego.)


I recently purchased the TVS wego, below are my observation

Pros:
1.) Easy to drive in traffic, weight is equally distributed unlike old generation scooters.
2.) 12 inch wheels gives better control & less chance of skidding. I have been pretty conservative with my ride till now but while taking turns I can feel the confidence my scooter gives.
3.) Good suspension, on par with what a bike provides. I have driven the activa when I was in my home town & the wego is miles better though one can hear the thud sound over bad rounds.
4.) Innovative centre stand, easy for ladies to engage.
5.) Readily available. Paid complete cash, got the vehicle the very next day.
6.) Good looking but subjective. White color suits the best.

Cons:
1.) Huge Panel Gaps, shoddy work at few places.
2.) Sound from the front suspension when going over bad roads, need to sort this out in first service.

Not sure:
1.) TVS engine longivity.
2.) Body rattling

After driven a car for around 4 years, I find the scooter very easy to drive in peak traffic. I am planning to do a chennai-blore-chennai trip sometime next march on my scooter.

Please test drive Access, Wego, Rodeo along side Aviator as each has its own advantages and dis-advantages over each other. Suzuki Access has a good feedback comparatively.

The plastics are a bit bad, and a few parts feel a bit cheap, but the scoot is much cheaper than its competition, so I have no-complaints. But build quality is not shoddy at all. It may feel cheaper than its competition, but it is still as well built.

The only problem with the Mahindra scoots is, very difficult to get any decent mileage out of it. 40-42kmpl is pretty much tops, would require you to be pretty ginger with the throttle. I almost invariably get around 35kmpl.
How come you get such a good mileage of 35 in Rodeo? I have a flyte and I get only 28 no matter how soft i drive.AFAIK all the 125 cc mahindras share the same engine(SYM).Insipte of repeated complaints of low mileage during service there has been no improvements

For some reason i'm in a "rare" category when it comes to Flyte issues (http://www.team-bhp.com/forum/motorb...0-kms-odo.html (Kinetic Flyte experience :first Service report(now 10000 Kms in Odo) !)) . I got 35KMPL consistently and only recently i see it to be less. So it is possible to get 35KMPL in flyte and in Rodeo as well.

Well, I am probably the rarest of rare category then. I thrash my rodeo pretty badly. Full throttle regularly, and standard speed maintainance of 60 on the speedo, and I get about 35. I remeber a fried rode it for a few days, and I filled up after I came, and found he had done 44km to the litre. I tried it myself on the next tank, and reached 42kmpl.

Till the 2nd service, I used to get about 25-30kmpl. But after that it has improved staying around the 35kmpl mark consistently. It drops a bit if I use it on the highway a bit, when I tend to maintain more around the 75 reading on the speedo. But I will say, I do tend to maintain very steady speed, which probably helps the mileage.

The engines may be the same, but I feel that the gearboxes are slightly different. The Rodeo felt more rev happy and easier to pull to higher speeds than the Flyte when I road tested them. But the sales guy said he had no idea. I loved the rev happyness of the Rodeo so I bought it. In fact the Rodeo seems a lot happier and smoother over 50kph than below it.

No, I don't face any such problems. This is because your front drum/brake pad has an uneven wear pattern, resulting in irregular contact causing a judder. Get it checked out, should not be a tough problem to solve.
