In recent times, 125 cc scooters have gained a lot of popularity in the Indian market, thanks to their premium appeal and extensive feature list over 110 cc scooters
While 110 cc scooters are still the preferred choice of Indians, the 125 cc scooter space is steadily growing, and almost all leading manufacturers currently have at least one product in the said space. 125 cc scooters already entail a premium over 110 cc segments, and then the transition from BS4 to BS6 took the price even higher.
However, the premium that you pay over 110 cc scooters is justified by the additional features and bigger engine. Starting with the Hero Destini 125, which is currently the most affordable 125 cc scooter in the Indian market, with a starting price of Rs 65,810 for the drum brake variant. The said scooter shares its 124.6 cc (9.12 PS/10.4 Nm) engine with the Maestro Edge 125, which is retailed at a starting price of Rs 69,250 (both prices, ex-showroom).
Honda has currently two products in this space, i.e. Activa 125 and Grazia 125, priced from Rs 68,997 and Rs 73,912 onwards respectively. Likewise, Yamaha also offers two 125 cc scooters in India, namely Fascino 125 Fi and RayZR Fi, which are currently offered at a base price of Rs 68,30 and Rs 69,530 (all prices, ex-showroom) respectively.
