Check out the best there is in the market

Honda just joined the bandwagon.

With the launch of Activa 125cc, Honda Motorcycle & Scooter India, the second largest two-wheeler company in the country has become the latest entrant to join the automatic scooters market.

For quite some time now, scooters have been significant sales-booster for all two-wheeler manufacturers in India. As the demand for scooters jumps, scoot makers are dishing out brilliant designs and spectacularly powerful range of scooters.

Among scooters, the 125cc segment is rapidly gaining in strength and is, some analysts say, leading to subdued demands for geared motorbikes.

While there are a number of manufacturers and designs in the market, we take a look at five automatic scoots that rank among the best:
