Default Activa or Aviator ?

Hi Guys

Its been a while at home we have been discussing a gearless vehicle for my wife and we have shortlisted "Activa" And "Aviator"

Both the engine specs are the same, but the confusion as to which is a better one.

Activa: Proven, Reliable, been in the industry for 5 + years

Aviator: New Look, Disc Brakes (Front Wheel), Telescopic suspension.

Dio: Ruled out by home minister

I would like to have your valuable inputs on Aviator/Activa.

Its for inter city travel in Bangalore, Max 30 km/daily

We shall be revisiting the showroom , Haiku honda Domlur this weekend to finalise the model. Your inputs are highly appreciated

Thanks

Condor,

Went through the first 2 links before posting this request. Phew, we have wealth of information. Missed the third link. Thanks for pointing it out.

Damn, I wonder how I miss them all the time.

Worthwhile information.

Thanks

Couple of things that are running in my mind w.r.t Aviator

1. Its seems that its a bit taller than Activa. I wonder if ladies can be able to keep both the feet on the ground !

2. Front Wheel 12', and Rear Wheel 10 ' ; Wheel swap not possible at all with this type of combination.

3. With telescopic suspensions and disc brakes on the front, I wonder its handling capability.

Will add more information as soon as I get them

1. Would depend on the person who will drive the vehicle.
2. Yes, swap not possible. But should not be a major problem
3. Should be good. Good to have discs & telescopic suspension - a-la bikes.

I would also suggest you to test drive Kinetic Flyte, there are loads of goodies though on the downside we have
* Kinetic A.S.S
* Frequent visit to petrol bunk due to small capacity fuel tank.
