Hero Pleasure: The Hero Pleasure has been a favourite amongst the female youth thanks to the proven motor backed by the company’s strong marketing initiatives and the vast sales and service network. However, it misses out components such as telescopic front forks that would make it a more comfortable commuter. Also, the build quality is acceptable but not at par with its other competitor, the Scooty Zest. It’s also the least powerful here, but only by 1PS. The seat height of 760mm is at par with the Zest, making it manageable for riders of almost
TVS Scooty Zest: The TVS Scooty Zest checks all the boxes when it comes to features, performance, refinement and comfort. On the feature front, it gets DRLs on the front apron, LED tail light, front storage space, an under-seat storage space with a boot light and a mobile charging socket. It also gets an external fuel filler cap. The ride quality is a lot more supple with the telescopic front forks. Power is at par with the Activa i, but the big boon here is the more modern CVTi gearbox which engages swiftly in comparison to the outdated variomatic gearbox on the Honda Activa i and the Hero Pleasure. Even the build quality is far better than what the Honda and Hero offer. The steel wheels here are finished in black and come wrapped with tubeless tyres. It is also lightest of the lot here, tipping the scale at 97kg.
