Top Five Fuel-Efficient BS6 Scooters We Have Tested

Indian manufacturers have finally caught up with the Japanese

With the government in no mood to ease up on the norms, performance figures have taken a hit while manufacturers have struggled to keep up. However, it isn’t all bad, especially for the scooter segment. Thanks to the stringent BS6 norms, manufacturers have switched to fuel-injection, which has improved fueling and mileage figures. The latter becomes even more crucial once you take the massive surge in petrol prices into consideration. So, which scooters return the highest mileage in this BS6 era? We let our road test numbers paint a picture:

Yamaha Fascino 125 Hybrid

Yamaha recently updated the Fascino 125 with a smart motor generator. While the power and torque remains unchanged, we found the new Fascino to be more efficient than before. It returned an impressive 68.75kmpl, making it the most fuel efficient 125cc BS6 scooter we have tested yet.  Here’s our test ride review of it.

Yamaha Ray ZR 125

RayZR RT design

Bridesmaid to the Fascino Hybrid is the BS6 Yamaha Ray ZR 125 with its fuel-efficiency figures of 66.23kmpl. For BS6, Yamaha bumped up the ZR’s engine to 125cc from the earlier 110cc. It is a decent package, despite not being the most feature-packed or the best looker in the segment. That said, the Ray ZR weighs just 99kg, which makes it easy-to-ride and even easier to live with. We rode the Ray ZR 125 Rally Street some time ago, and you can check out our road test review to know what we thought.

Hero Maestro Edge 125 Connected

In third place we have the Hero Maestro Edge 125. During our tests, the scooter returned an impressive 65kmpl. Compared to its older model, the 2021 Maestro Edge is 8kmpl more fuel efficient. This, coupled with the new design and connected features, the Maestro Edge makes a strong case for itself amongst its competitors.

Hero Destini 125

In Hero’s lineup, the Destini 125 sits below the Maestro Edge 125 and that’s the case here too. With a mileage of 61.6kmpl, the Destini is our fourth most fuel efficient 125cc scooter. However, it isn’t as well equipped as the Maestro Edge, which could bother a few people. Nevertheless, the Destini 125 is quite likeable.

Suzuki Burgman Street

The Suzuki Burgman Street is one of the better offerings in the segment today, thanks to its smart gizmo list, comfortable ergonomics, and a premium maxi-scooter design. All of this, coupled with the Burgman’s frugal engine which returned 55.88kmpl, makes it a lucrative product. The Burgman Street even came out on top in our mega 125cc-scooter comparison.
