I duly apologize if my post misguided you.

Considering easy access fuel tank as a stand alone feature, I accept that the Flyte and the Kristal have a much more convenient fuel tank.

I have ridden a Flyte too, make no mistakes, its a great scoot. Why do I carry apprehensions about buying a Flyte? You have penned down the precise reason for it.

Cheers!

@five46: I guess my english is not that good and got mis-represented in my post,. I wasnt aware that a bike called Streak was launched until i saw your post. And the comment on Streak was only my observation!

I do see that we both have the same view point so why do you ask for apology !!

Cheers

Default Refreshed Activa Soon

In ACI Feb issue
This Month features Refreshed Activa soon....

"Honda is likely to launch a facelifted version of its hugely successful Activa scooter in later March this year. Though details remain sketchy for the moment, the revamped Activa is likely to be offered in two variants, with an Activa Deluxe joining the line-up. The Activa Deluxe is expected to be offer additional features such as an illuminated luggage box and combined braking that balances the engagement of both front and rear brakes."

I have been eagerly waiting for this one since Dec...

Nice to hear that Activa is going to be relaunched, and i see that you are already sold to it! I'm more interested in looking at how this 'Combined Braking' is going to work. Also, any idea about the price tag?

'illuminated luggage box' is a standard feature in Flyte.

Default New Two Wheelers from Honda

New Two Wheelers from Honda

Quote:

Source Bikeindia


You have already read about Hondaís plans to get the Fireblade and the CB1000R to India by the end of February this year. But what you havenít heard yet is their plan to launch two new mass production vehicles. The first bike is a new generation Activa scooter. Speculated to be a local version of the Honda Lead which is sold in other Asian countries, the bike will use a retuned powerplant from the Aviator. A tweaked variomatic gearbox from the current Activa will find its way into the new scooter as well. Honda also plans to have a variant, christened the Activa Deluxe, which will boast additional features like a front disc brake assembly, cast alloys, etc. The scooter is expected to go on sale by late March or early April 2009 and will be priced in the same bracket as the current Activa with the Deluxe variant dearer by Rs 3,000]The other two-wheeler on the cards is a sporty variant based on the UnicornStunner is to the Shine. Likely to be named the CBF150, (which was also the development code for the Unicorn) the bike will take on the Yamaha FZ16, TVS RTR and other premium offerings in the segment. It will be the first two-wheeler from Honda to incorporate the PGM-FI technology which was seen earlier on the Hero Honda Glamour FI. Our sources have also confirmed that Honda has been extensively testing a new 120-section rear tyre with MRF. This tyre is likely to make it onto the CBF150. Expect the bike to be launched a couple of weeks before monsoons

Today went to TVS showroom in Chennai to look at Streak and came to know that it would be available in showroom from next week only. Also, it would be priced around 40K+.

I thought the Aviator is the new lead. The so called new Activa also looks the same.

IMHO, the rear of the new Scooty Streak is . The Scooty Pep/Pep+ were much better rounded designs.

The Honda Line-up is getting confusing now-

The most widely sold model of Lead is our own Dio na?
Also, is the Aviator sold with a 125cc engine in its export model guise?

Ok! This was easy to understand!

The rear indeed looks odd from the pictures on the site. I'll be visiting TVS showroom coming week and see how it really looks.

Even i'm with the same thougth! The Activa and Aviator shares the same engine spec and rest are different!

Yep! I know that! I think I had read somewhere that the Aviator will be exported with a 125cc engine. If this is true, will this engine be doing duties in the 'new scooter'. Oh!! Permutations and combinations!!!

Default Aviator Query

Hello everbody, I am planning to purchase a 2 wheeler for my wife. Vehicle will be used for office commutation around 7 Km daily and occasional shopping trip in pune city. Wife allready driven and sold spirit and 2 scooties. So there is absolute NO from her for any bajaj, Kinetic & TVS product. Came down to Honda, Suzuki & Hero Honda. Test Driven Activa, Aviator, Access & Pleasure. Aviator (Drum brake) came out to be her choice.

Guys who own Aviator, can you share some information about ownership, maintainance, average and other issue of this bike. Any rattles from plastic body part???.

I have been using Aviator for past nine months without any trouble its like butter smoooth in its operation go for one with disc and alloy its worth the money, disc really helps u in sudden braking and alloys helps in keeping ur wheels always new without rust.

I have been using Aviator more than my car for short runs once i had acquired it and i love its engine & comfort.
