Mahindra Flyte vs Honda Aviator vs Suzuki Access

From the day we have conducted the Mahindra Flyte in India test ride, we have been inundated with requests of a comparison of the top scooters in India. Once again a touchy topic as I have always shied away from scooters, ignoring their practicality in the process. But my colleague Nikita and one of my friends Aishwarya both were at logger heads about their respective steeds. The steeds happen to be the Honda Aviator and the Suzuki Access 125 respectively. So I had to rely upon my third colleague to complete the triplet test comparison. It was none other than Rutika. I had to once again resort to asking Mahindra for loaning me the Flyte. Tough day and even more when we have the India-Pakistan [...]

Ahh! I hate Bullets and variomatic scooters the most in the biking scene. Bullets because they aren’t my type and dare I say don’t give as much riding pleasure as say the other cruisers or sports bikes. Being fed on a constant diet of 150- 220 cc motor bikes and ones which provide enough grunt and zip. The latter is the reason why I hate automatic scooters. Not that I am too much of a sucker for geared ones. Its purely bikes that I love and it would stand the same. So when one girl in my office suggested that we take up one of the smaller scooters for a test ride or review, I had a crinkled nose expression on me. The reason being that me being a 6 foot plus personality doesn’t look [...]
