July 20, 2016 16:28 IST

If you are looking for a comfortable ride on bustling Indian roads without having to worry about fuel average, we have got these five options for you.

We hope you enjoyed reading India's top 10 fuel-efficient bikes. Here, we present to you the top 5 scooters in India.

Fluctuating fuel prices isn't a new thing for us Indians; in fact most of the times we see it going only up. If you want to keep a check on increasing fuel expenses, then opting for fuel-efficient commuter motorcycles is, perhaps, one way out.

But comfort and convenience have their own place of importance for a daily rider which is better assured on the road by gearless scooters. Manufacturers are now putting in lots of effort to improve fuel efficiency in gearless scooters.

Hero Duet

The newly launched unisex scooter, Hero Duet, comes in two variants -- the VX and the LX -- priced at Rs 49,250 and Rs 47,600 respectively.

With a new 110cc engine that churns out 8.4PS of max power, the scooter competes with the likes of the popular Honda Activa. Hero claims that the Duet delivers a fuel economy up to 63.8kmpl, which makes it stand strong against its competitors.

Both variants come with a metal body, tubeless tyres and Integrated Braking system (IBS) as standard features. However, the top VX trim houses additional features like telescopic front suspension, analog-digital console, mobile charging port and boot light.

Powering the scooter is an advanced 124cc engine bolstered by SEP (Suzuki Eco Performance) technology endowing it with an optimum performance. It promises to return a healthy fuel economy of 64kmpl, making it the most fuel-efficient 125cc scooter on sale in the country.

The all-new Suzuki Access comes with a host of features like one-push shutter key lock, digital-analog console, front pocket and mobile charging socket.

Features like digital-analog console, mobile charging port, boot light, Integrated Braking System (IBS), 12-inch front wheels (alloys optional) and immobiliser (anti-theft system) at the price tag of Rs 49,700 make the package more upbeat.
