Oh yes when i went to the Fuel station the attendant said "Scooter se to utro, fir petrol dalega" (Get down from the scooter), thinking that the fuel tank is beneath the seat . I told him, "Aage dekho, yahan par petrol dalta hai". He was dumbfounded.

I am yet to see a Kristal on road. Most of them are Activas or Scooty peps.

Well, the speedo says the top speed is 140 kmph . Don't expect him to rip his new baby during run-in period.

this little ungeared scooter is into its 7th page now and yeah its amazing that a little scooterette (albeit a 125cc) has raised so much a healthy debate. congrats to dceite on the purchase and my best wishes.

somehow i feel that kinetic perhaps has got this one right after a long long time. good luck to them and its new customers. what has got me ticking on this product is the 3 year warranty. that's simply unheard of in the scooter industry in india till now, obviously.

also i have reliably learnt that honda has now "all of a sudden" has made the activa available on spot delivery! hmmmm...thats interesting don't you think? perhaps they are starting to feel the heat of competetion from upto date products like the kinetic flyte and suzuki access. whatever the reason its good that the "artificial" waiting period for the activa is no more active.

its hard to believe that honda has not been able to ramp up its production for over 3 years to meet the demand for the activa but now suddenly its available on the spot. very interesting indeed.

Maybe the demand for Activa is down after the arrival of worthy competetion. Why do you think it was artificial.

artificial because in reality there was no production or supply problem to justify a waiting period. it was just to create an image of high demand for the activa which it actually did and which in turn created an even greater demand.

if they really wanted to they could have caught up with the bookings and ensured deliveries in 2 or 3 days max. best part for them is that they have actually managed to successfully pull this off for over 4 years now.

but now they realize that the time has come to change that approach.

Default Which is the best scooterette ?

Hi All,

I am a newbie on Team-BHP and in the process of upgrading form Scooty ES to a new scooterette . I have zeroed in on
1. Scooty Pep + (has better features than ES)
2. Hero Honda Pleasure (read good reviews on internet).
3. Kinetic Sym Flyte. (After reading DC ite thread in this website !)

The things that I want from my scoot is mileage, good pick up n better ground clearance (than Scooty ES). Honda Activa is out of my list coz its very heavy (why should I be saddled with an Elephant !?) n I havent heard good things abt its mileage (just abt 40?). I owned a Hero Puch before Scooty ES. Both of them gave me good mileage HP, abt 55+, Scooty abt 45+.

I need help from you guys in picking a better scoot out of the above three. help me ! Your reviews/thoughts will help me deciede.

Thnx.

Try Suzuki new scooter. Its a 125cc engine with 8.5BHP and the mileage is better than Honda Activa. Also you can try Dio it has fibre body and is not heavy as Activa.

Out of the choices you mentioned, the only scooterette which has telescopic front suspension is the Kinetic-SYM Flyte.
Also, i hear good things about Suzuki Access. It too has telescopic suspension upfront and is 125cc much like KSF.
If you ask me, Kinetic-SYM Flyte it is!

P.S. I have nothing to do with DC

Oops ! Misssed the "E" out, dint I ? U knw I did actually wonder if u were a part of DC. Ok coming back to the topic, why would you prefer Sym Flyte over the others? And what is telescopic front suspension ? I am a complete novice when it comes to all these techie terms.

the access is quite bigger in overall size than the ksf and costs at least 3.5k more. the main feature diff is the front fueling of the ksf thats not available on the access. rest of the features are kind of similar.

the access it appears is quite squarely targeted at the activa market while the fltye is targeted at the pep & pleasure market.

best is to test ride both back to back & then decide which fits your purpose & budget better. mileagewise i think that both will deliver similar averages.
