Thinking of getting yourself a new set of wheels this festive season? Here’re the five scooters that offer the best value for money
It’s raining offers, which means it's probably the best time to pick up a set of new wheels. The scooter segment is a viable option if that’s what you’re looking for. But it could get quite overwhelming considering the number of options you have. So to make things a bit simpler, we’ve narrowed it down to the top five scooters that offer the best value for money proposition.
1. TVS Jupiter BS6: Rs 64,077 (Starting Price)
The TVS Jupiter is one of the best options out there. There’s a reason why it’s the third best selling scooter in the market, bested only by Suzuki’s Access 125 and the Honda’s Activa range. It’s stood the test of time with top-class reliability and excellent built quality. Despite being a 110cc scooter, the Jupiter has a decent amount of performance, more than enough for your daily commutes, and a suspension setup that pretty much glides over rough roads. You have a total of 4 variants to choose from, starting from the base model and going up to the top-spec Jupiter Classic, which gets an LED headlamp, fuel injection technology, tinted visor and an apron-mounted USB charger.

2. Suzuki Access 125 BS6: Rs 70,500 (Starting Price)
The Access 125 has been dominating the 125cc segment ever since its launch back in 2016. It’s been the preferred scooter choice amongst enthusiasts thanks to its butter smooth engine, balanced suspension setup and retro looks. The BS6 model proved to better its predecessor in every single way which speaks volumes about the product. The most recent updates include a full LED headlight, new LED position lights, eco assist; and a Bluetooth enabled digital instrument console with turn by turn navigation, call, SMS & WhatsApp alerts, over-speed warning, ETA updates, and phone battery level display.
3. TVS NTorq 125 BS6: Rs 68,885 (Starting Price)
Next on the list is the BS6 NTorq 125. It’s been setting new benchmarks ever since its introduction and has been our top choice amongst 125cc scooters. The NTorq comes packed with a peppy engine that’s perfect for city commutes, quick overtakes and even occasional highway runs. The suspension setup is perfectly balanced to tackle Indian roads while its chunky tyres offer a good amount of grip and stability. Not to mention, it’s the most feature-packed scooter in its segment with a full LED headlight, tail light and a full-digital instrument console with a host of readouts. Let’s just say you can’t go wrong with this one.

4. Honda Activa 6G: Rs Rs 65,892 (Starting Price)
The BS6 update brought with it the Activa 6G which has been thoroughly reworked for 2020. It gets an all-new 109.51cc motor which offers stronger bottom and mid-range punch. Claimed fuel-efficiency has been improved by 10 percent - something that Activa buyers will greatly appreciate. To add to this, the scooter comes with a silent ACG starter and an engine kill switch. The other big change is the new telescopic fork and the larger 12-inch wheel. Honda has also finally given the scooter an external fuel-filler and combination key slot. More details here.
5. Ather 450X: Rs 1,59,000
It’s safe to say that homegrown startup Ather Energy laid the foundation for electric scooters in India. What started off as the Ather 450 has now grown into the sophisticated, tech-loaded Ather 450X which pushes the envelope of what’s possible in the e-scooter segment. The 450X offers better connectivity features, a bigger battery pack and a slightly more powerful motor than the standard 450. It even delivers better claimed real-world range -- 70km in Ride mode and 85km in Eco. Its torque output has been increased from 20.5Nm to 26Nm which gives better drivability right from the get-go. Heck, the Ather 450X even gets Warp mode which improves acceleration considerably. Read all about the scooter here.
