Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which scooter is good? Activa, Jupiter or Vespa Elettrica?
  • I think as an owner of 2 activa and 1 Jupiter i think Jupiter is better because both the tyres are alloy and 12 inch size give better handling, center stand is easier to operate and can be operated with min strength, fuel filler is outside so you don't have to get up to fill the fule . both engines are equally smooth and much better compared to hero's scooters, but yes when ideal Jupiter engine makes more noise compared to activa but not worth complaining.
  • Activa is better than the Jupiter as the Jupiter has some sound and vibrations where the active is a bit quite
  • Jupiter, any dayExcellent Value for money, Comfortable. Easy to get service done

Q. Why is Access 125 best than Activa 5G?
  • Access 125 is better than Activa 5G because of larger engine (more power, more torque at lower RPM, better engine life under harsher conditions etc.), telescopic suspension at the front for better ride quality (less j**k on shoulders), larger front wheel for improved road control etc.
  • Because its more comfortable for tall people and and is better in terms of power and seating position than the 5g
