The storage space on some scooters might shock you

There’s a good reason why every one of every three two-wheelers sold in India is now a scooter. The essence of practicality, which scooters offer with their under-seat storage compartments and floorboards, makes them more practical than motorcycles for daily commutes and errands.

Even among new-generation electric two-wheeler buyers, scooters are becoming more popular go-to options for their additional underseat storage space. If you are someone who is looking to carry as many items as possible while on the go on a scooter, this list of five scooters with the best under-seat storage space is what you should check out:

1: River Indie – 43 litres

Bengaluru-based River Mobility calls its first-ever all-electric scooter, the River Indie, India’s “SUV of scooters”, given its rugged styling bits and components. However, beyond its unique design, the River Indie also catches attention for its humongous 43-litre underseat storage space, which is currently the largest among all the scooters in India. Available in a single variant, the River Indie is priced at Rs 1.25 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Bengaluru).

2: Ola S1 Pro – 34 litres

The highest-selling electric two-wheeler in India, the Ola S1 Pro shook the electric mobility segment with its segment-best features like a touchscreen instrument cluster, keyless go, and in-built speakers. Along with these features and best-in-class performance and range, the Ola S1 Pro also created headlines thanks to its large 36-litre storage space under its seat. The Ola S1 Pro recently entered its second-generation version, which took its price up to Rs 1.47 Lakhs (ex-showroom, Bengaluru) and reduced the underseat storage by 2 litres (now 34 litres). Still, it's one of the highest storage spaces you can get on any scooter in India.

3: TVS Jupiter 125 – 33 litres

The TVS Jupiter 125 boasts the largest storage compartment under its seat among all the petrol-powered scooters. For the Jupiter 125, TVS placed the fuel tank below the floorboard while repositioning the fuel tank filler cap behind the front apron. The result is a 33-litre underseat storage space in the TVS Jupiter 125, priced between Rs 86,405 and Rs 96,855 (ex-showroom, Delhi).

4: Hero Vida V1 Pro – 26 litres

Vida V1 Pro Electric Offers

The first all-electric scooter from Hero MotoCorp, the futuristic-looking Hero Vida V1 Pro, has a unique arrangement for storing items under its seat. The under-seat storage space in Hero Vida V1 Pro is partitioned into two halves, with their combined capacity rated at 26 litres. However, the partition in the under-seat storage compartment of the Vida V1 Pro electric scooter lowers its practicality by a small margin. Hero MotoCorp has priced the Vida V1 Pro at Rs 1.46 lakh (ex-showroom, Bengaluru).

5: Yamaha Aerox 155 – 24.5 litres

Another petrol-powered scooter on this list, the Yamaha Aerox 155, has become a sought-after choice for performance seekers in the country. While it delivers on the expectations from its YZF-R15-derived engine, it also scores high on practicality with its deep 24.5-litre under-seat storage compartment. And while the central spine running through the Aerox’s floorboard restricts utility in that area, the spacious under-seat storage compartment makes up for it. The Yamaha Aerox 155 price varies between Rs 1,46,800 and Rs 1,48,300 (ex-showroom, Delhi), depending on the colour choice

How Do These Scooters Have Spacious Underseat Storage Space?

Most petrol scooters come with external fuel fillers, but their fuel tanks are still under their seat, while electric scooters have spacious compartments as they do not need a fuel tank at all. Li-ion batteries can be shaped such that they can be accommodated in other areas of the scooter. All these modern scooters with large under-seat storage space mentioned above in the list here are either electric two-wheelers or petrol scooters with their fuel tank repositioned from under the seat or somewhere else. These are the engineering alternatives that create more space under the seat.
