Why Choose Hero Destini 125?

Good Stuff

Hero MotoCorp isn’t trying to push people towards different available variants. Instead, the company offers every little practical feature in a single scooter.

It packs in enough practicality, features,  performance, and handling which easily justifies its already affordable price tag.

The company could have done it like the rivals, offering Analog-Digital Meter as an optional feature. Fortunately, Hero MotoCorp went the other way by putting every little feature as standard even at this price point.

Bad Stuff

Until recently, styling has never been Hero’s strongest suit.

Even though Hero Duet was the initial source of inspiration, the overall styling awkwardly resembles a mix of Honda Aviator and Honda Activa 125.

However, I can’t really complain much, especially at this price point.

Summary

Compared to other 125cc scooters in this list, Hero Destini might fall short on performance and styling. However, it makes up for it with attractive pricing and cool features, making it sit on the fifth position on our list of best 125cc scooters in Nepal.

Why Choose Honda Activa 125?

Good Stuff

Honda Activa 125 comes across as a rescue for those looking for a simple scooter without the over the top styling. It takes a competitive edge over the Hero Destini 125 with its superior styling elements.

On top of that, Activa still boasts excellent fuel economy despite offering such a perky performance.

Bad Stuff

If you take a quick look at the Honda Activa highlights, you will notice that few features are optional.

Honda notoriously separates best features for its “Deluxe” option, turning a good offering into a bad one. Unfortunately, this kind of practice is a plague across popular Honda bikes and scooters.

Summary

Honda Nepal seems growingly overconfident in their products, which is apparent with the high pricing strategy. While it might be great for brand value, it is slowly losing its edge over the competition.

That is why Honda Activa 125 is positioned in the fourth position on our best 125cc scooters in Nepal list.

SEE ALSO: Suzuki Scooters Price in Nepal: Features and Specs

Bad Stuff

I don’t have any bad things to say. Quite frankly, I regret the moment I called Suzuki Burgman a bad deal during its initial launch due to its pricing at the time.

Fortunately, times have changed.

Moreover, it should be noted that Suzuki Burgman isn’t a perfect maxi-scooter. However, it is the most affordable 125cc maxi-scooter on this list.

Bad Stuff

There are few hiccups in the Yamaha Ray ZR 125 FI like the halogen bulbs and a stiffer seat which can be easily overlooked. However, the pricing between the variants is… interesting.

If you look at the pricing, there are two variants available: Drum and Front Disc. Calculating the difference between the two, there is about Rs. 15,000 price difference just for that front disc.

Summary

Yamaha Scooters have improved considerably in their respective BS6-compliant avatars. Despite its unfair pricing for the disc variant, the scooter is still a worthy purchase!

Bad Stuff

Since the TVS NTorq is a 3-valve engine, riders usually experience a decrease in mileage. However, it might differ across riding style.
