Women’s Day 2023: Top 5 Scooters For Women
From very basic options to one with a bunch of safety features, the market has a lot to offer now
From racing and rallying to hardcore touring, women have been stepping into and acing in the two-wheeler world. And if you or your female family member are looking to their two-wheeler journey, here are the top five scooters you should consider:
This is the most popular option in this list and for a reason. The TVS Scooty Pep+ has a very low and accessible seat height. This coupled with its beginner friendly 87.8cc engine producing 5.4PS and 6.5Nm makes it a great option to learn and even sharpen your skills on a two-wheeler.
For those who are looking for slightly more performance, without compromising on accessibility, the TVS Scooty Zest is a great option. Its 109.6cc engine makes 7.81PS and 8.8Nm, and thanks to its kerb weight of just 103kg and 760mm seat height, managing it in the city is a bit easier.
Hero Pleasure Plus XTec
The Pleasure Plus is Hero MotoCorp’s scooter primarily intended for the fairer sex. The 104kg kerb weight for the LX and VX variants and 106kg for the ZX+ trim makes this scooter convenient to move around in traffic or even a parking lot. Furthermore, with its XTec trim, you get Bluetooth connectivity which has safety features like geofencing, tow alert, topple alert and even live tracking, which could come in handy.
The Yamaha Fascino is the perfect blend of performance, features and practicality. Its 125cc mild-hybrid engine produces 8.2PS and 10.3Nm. And complementing its performance is its 99kg kerb weight, making it not just the lightest amongst the 125cc scooters, but also lighter than the 110cc scooters mentioned above.
Yamaha has also given its retro-styled scooter Bluetooth connectivity, which comes with call/sms alerts, last parking notification along with maintenance and malfunction notification alerts.
The Suzuki Access is another lightweight and friendly option in our market. If you opt for the Ride Connect Edition, you’ll get Bluetooth connectivity with turn-by-turn navigation, call/SMS alerts, phone battery status and even a caller ID. Furthermore, with its 125cc engine making 8.7PS and 10Nm, it is the most powerful scooter in this list.
