    I am using a 7 months old Wego- which was my first scooter (after riding bikes for 2 decades). I will pick up another scooter in a month and taking test rides. I need a low height vehicle and TVS Pep+ and Ray/Ray Z fit this requirement. I believed that Wego is the best scooter in terms of soft, comfortable suspension, excellent body balance with large 12″ alloy wheels, 50+ mileage in city traffic, great performance. I took a test drive of Ray last week. Somehow it was a like a toy, compared to wego. Easy to ride, excellent control, and I had fun riding it. Priced at 10K more than Pep+, it is still value for money. I have taken test ride of Activa and Dio. Engine is good but riding comfort, handling, suspension is pathetic compared to Wego or Ray.

    I own Ray Z from Feb 2014, after 1st Servicing getting 46 kmpl, and it has awesome control, you can go down the speed from 80kmph to 40kmph in just 20 Sec and increase the speed from 0 to 60kmph in 20-30 sec by accelarator without touching brakes. The brakes are also nice & soft and you find it very easy to control. In high speed like 80kmph, the bike does not vibrate and you will feel smooth ride. I really feel the power of bike in scooter range.

    I bought ray z i am 22 male
    Pick up is good
    Stylish-better for men than women for women theres ray.
    Very smooth on pot holes and speed brakers
    Smooth ride
    There is no grip to hold when applying center stand-bad for ladies
    Petrol tank lid is under seat so you had to open the seat for filling it.
    Problem with self start after servicing
    Advantage over activa
    Stylish look
    Comfort ride
    Smooth thanks to shock absorbers
    Mileage is low compared to activa
    Prize is higher than activa
    Activa got tubeless tires
    My friends father recently bought activa he said he got problem with self both one is affected in self start
    Mileage-45 to 52 kmpl
    If you think style over mileage then ray z is yours

    i am confused in Honda DIO Vs Yaham ray Z because of following.
    1- Drive type Shaft in Ray Z and Chain in Honda
    2- CBS – this is available in Honda but not there in Yamah ray Z
    3- Torque and BHP is greater then Yamah ray Z.
    Can anyone ansser based on my above point which one will be the best choice.

    All those activa lovers, the activa gives a mileage of 60kmpl. But bikes are not only based mileage. Activa gives a bad pickup. It gives a topspeed of 80kmph. Yamaha ray gives a mileage of 55kmpl. But in this era yamaha ray is the best scooter. It gives a powerful pickup than all scooters. Ray gives a topspeed of 85kmpl which is more than activa. We cannot go triple in activa.
