I cannot comment on any scooter except the Aviator which I recently purchased for my wife. The scooter is heavy, which unsurprisingly, makes it underpowered. If your mum/sis is of small stature, I would go for a lighter and easier to manuever scooter like the Activa instead.

Hi BR,

You have listed all good scoots and hence finding it difficult. If its purely for the ladies, and occasionally for the gents, then the pick of the lot should be HH Pleasure or Honda Dio which are light and peppy. The rest in the list are heavy including the activa which is not in your list.
I have a cousin sis using Access which is heavy for her 90kg frame itself.

From the above list you have mentioned, my opinion will go like this as per choice :
1) HH Pleasure
2) Honda Dio
3) Honda Aviator
4) Suzuki Access.

Access is nice, I can handle but not good for ladies.
Dio is a dynamic disaster IMO due to front suspension that rises when the front brakes will be used. Aviator is good in this regard, but again on the heavier side.
Pleasure is nothing but badge engineered Activa but it is lighter. Good for ladies, is peppy and good FE too.
