yeah the 125cc is the only advantage and the A.S.S is still under construction and so are the spares! well one might regret buying the access if it does not click well, just like blaze is a powerful scooter, but has very poor A.S.S. why even suggest this one! on the other hand honda activa imo should be the first choice(i have explained why activa in my previous posts above), second dio then the others!

I own an Honda Activa, it's a real gem, will just keep going on and on, it's now been 3 yrs of ownership, nobody takes care of her, everyone just keep's driving her all over the place, but the scooter never complains, I don't remember having a punture in the last 3 yrs, for me it's Honda Activa, because I have first hand experience about it's reliabilty.

sorry to go little OT.. which is the best two wheeler (geared or ungeared) under 50K? you see.. i have to buy this for a 'good man' to help him with his work related travel but he is not well off so the ownership costs (apart from purchase) should be really low.

initial cost no barrier (upto 50K)
ownership should be cheap and trouble free in terms of FE, reliability, cheap and available a.s.s (even in small towns)

Flyte comes with a 3 year warranty, highest in scooters.
actually around the world, sym scooters come with lifetime warranties on engines, thats how good their engineering and quality is. In India, they arent giving lifetime bec of dusty conditions and suspect fuel quality (read in autocar) but 3 yr is a very long warranty

Please don't buy an ungeared scooter is less safer,less economical,slower and expensive than a comparative spec bike.
NOTE:ISSUED IN THE INTERST OF DCEIte BY REVVEDUP.
Still after reading this you if have your mind set for the ungeared scoot my advice would be to wait for scooters from sym and italijet before considering a final purchase.

point taken,but saves a lot of riding stress off in the bumper to bumper traffic, i still have my left hand aching from day before yesterday's ride( on my unicorn) in the neck to neck traffic (got stuck in it for an hour, due to the rains here in hyderabad).

Thanks guys for your responses.
I have shortlisted Honda Dio and Kinetic Sym Flyte.

Going to check both of them in a few days. By the way, is there a major problem with Kinetic A.S.S. ?

I finally could lay hands on Honda Activa today. It is amazing bike and fires very nicely. My sincere advice is to close eyes and buy a Honda, whichever model.

Had really bad experience with Kinetic Y2K

The Kinetic Y2K is a DUMB bike...I wonder what Kinetic was thinking of when it launched this bike. Anyway I agree with megger....get a Honda....life is much simpler and peaceful...trust me. I still have my 1986 Kinetic Honda and she runs like a dream.....Honda rules!!!!!
