Scooters have evolved quite nicely over the past few years. Here's the proof!

Over the past few years, the idea of sport has managed to trickle down to even the lowest rung of the Indian automotive market. What was once a segment reserved for Activas and peps, now also accommodated sportier and more fun options. So this list will give you a refresher of just how much fun the scooter segment in India has become.


Now a BMW badge comes with its share of the money. However, the C 400 GT stands for the idea of how much fun a scooter can be. At its heart, it is powered by a 350cc engine and it comes with an Automatic Stability Control function, a 6.5-inch Bluetooth-enabled TFT screen, and a host of other features. But most importantly, with a power output of 33.5bhp, it’s the most powerful scooter available in our country.

Yamaha Aerox 155

Yamaha’s decision to the Aerox was news for us. The Aerox 155 serves as the perfect purchase for enthusiasts who are planning to have a second mild offering in their garage that can be used for daily chores but is still fun. The scooter comes with the same engine as the YZF R15 along with VVA. It produces 15bhp of peak output and comes with a price tag of Rs 1.31 lakh.

Aprilia SR 160

At its introduction, the SR 160 was placed at the helm of performance in its segment. But the story has changed ever since. While its competitors might have surpassed it on the spec sheet, the scooter still proves to be an attractive proposition with impressive stability, handling dynamics and braking power. The scooter is powered by a 160-cc three-valve engine that outputs 10.8bhp and 116Nm of torque. 

Aprilia SXR 160

Aprilia’s 160cc engine fits like a glove in the SXR 160. The scooter is different from the SR 160 and gains a few points over the latter in terms of practicality and comfort. With the same output figures as the SR 160, the SXR gets a maxi-styling with generous storage space under the seat and on the front.
