Q. What is the difference between dio, std and dlx? why rates are different?
  • Well, way back in 2014-15 I was happy to buy the standard but I think the stylish decor and I do not know about the difference, now. The new Duo has a morning glare Light set on the handle bar which the earlier Doo did not have!
  • The above listed have a difference in pricing because the Dio DLX has some extra features which are not available in the Dio STD version.For ex-Dio DLX gets an All digital display while the Dio STD has rhe traditional Analog meter
  • Hey Kukil, the DIO - is the older 2017 Dio which will only be around till stocks are available. The STD and DLX are the 2018 Dio - both these get the combi switch and remote boot opener, LED headlamps and DRLs, and combined Braking. What the DLX gets above this is a digital instrument cluster and gold painted wheels. Hope that helps! Ciao!

Q. Hey which is the best scooter Honda dio & yamaha ray zr?
  • Both the scooters have similar figures of power, fuel economy and price. Although, there are few differences which are mentioned below: - Yamaha has taken the competition a step ahead with the provision of optional disc brake at the front, which is not available in Honda Dio. - Honda still continues to use the aging trailing link with spring-loaded hydraulic damper type at the front whereas, the Ray-ZR uses oil filled telescopic forks which are far more superior in terms of handling and stability. - The Honda Dio has the smallest wheelbase at 1,781mm which aids to its manoeuvrability. - The ground clearance is the least for the Yamaha Ray-ZR at 128mm while the Dio have clearance of 158mm. - The Honda Dio is equipped with Combi-Brakes which is a boon for amateur riders and misses out in Ray ZR. The Dio features a moto-scooter design and has low seats height which is ideal for youngsters and college-goers. It has been around for a while but the added dash of modernity has given it some much needed freshness. On the other hand, a youthful design and well-engineered mechanicals, the Yamaha Ray-ZR constitutes a fairly attractive package for college-going boys. It could also make for a safer and much cheaper alternative for young men who opt against buying motorcycles. In truth, the scooter could also attract the fairer sex with convenient handling mannerisms, thus supporting its cry for also being a family scooter.

  • I prefer Ray ZR bcz it have many plus like disk break, allow wheels, and telescopic fork and smooth rear dual suspension like bikes and very torque advanced engine than dio and it performs well at higher rpm also it's top speed is higher than dio i used drag race with my frnds dio that time i realise this, in pickup dio is like zap it really quicker than ZR, the pickup is the only disadvantage in ZR but after 60kmph ZR takes lead and yeah ZR wins. Also ZR is very comfortable scooter like mature scooters like activa, maestro. It have Large seat it's very comfortable for long rides even with pillion no trouble. But In dio you will get back pain in long rides even in solo that i experienced in my frnd dio also the pillion is very short and hard like rock it's not comfortable as much like ZR it's smooth like butter when compared with dio. And the mileage is my ZR gives 40kmpl. And it's handling is too good and with disk break it gives you more confidence level while riding but dio didn't give that. Dio is just a teenage squids scooter only for city rides. ZR is very matured one for long life. Or you need all this one like squid performance and also comfy and with better top speed and safety with technology then go with TVS Ntorq 125 trust me dude it's all rounder but i don't know about it's engine life. That's it I shared all my experience. Now decision is yours 👍

Q. Which is the best between Destini 125 and Access 125?
  • With a price tag, feature list and performance that’s on par with its closest rival, the Access 125, it’s hard to pick a clear winner here. However, if you were looking for an elegant scooter that’s a bit fresher in terms of styling, we’d suggest the Hero Destini. Not only this, but the scooter also packs quite a few modern features that give it a competitive edge.The Hero Destini 125 was always intended to be positioned as more of a value-for-money proposition. at its price, it seems to have lived up to its claim. However, the only tangible advantage it seems to be offering, at least to the average buyer, is the i3S technology. We believe features such as LED lights, and perhaps even a disc brake option, might have helped it edge past its competition more easily. That said, after our short first ride, we were quite impressed by the scooter’s fit-and-finish, ride quality, performance and spot-on ergonomics, the last of which we think is the best in this family-oriented 125cc scooter space. All that, packed in a 125cc scooter that is the most affordable in its segment makes for a pretty sweet deal from our point of view.

  • If you’re on a strict budget but are looking for a reasonably powerful family scooter, the Destini is an ideal product. Its i3S technology will help you conserve fuel, while nifty practical features like the service indicator and external fuel filler make the ownership experience all the more convenient. On the other hand, like the Destini, the Activa 125 also has a sober design language. However, this scooter comes with a few nifty features which the Destini lacks: LED headlight, optional front disc and eco speed indicator on the analogue-digital combo cluster. Reasonably, these features puts a premium on the scooter’s pricing, at Rs 59,921 (ex-Delhi) for the base variant. Do take a test ride in order to pick one.
