Here is our list of the five most affordable scooters that are available currently in the Indian two-wheeler market
Scooters are extremely popular in India, as they are very practical, while also being fairly affordable (well, mostly!). However, auto prices have been steadily rising in our country, and as such, two-wheelers have become quite expensive these days. That said, there are a few scooters that continue to be relatively easy on the wallet.
Here, we have listed the top five most affordable scooters that can currently be bought in the Indian market.
1. TVS Scooty Pep Plus
