Buying A Used Scooter? Here Are Our Top 5 Picks

Scooters have always been highly popular among Indian two-wheeler buyers. They are convenient, highly practical, and quite affordable, making them the ideal vehicle for that daily city commute from point A to point B. So, if you are looking for a capable scooter, but are on a tight budget, then the used two -wheeler market will be your best option. They are much cheaper compared to a brand-new vehicle because most of their value has already depreciated, and if you look patiently, you can get a perfectly good scooter for nearly half the value of a new one. Here are 5 scooters that we think you should consider.

Honda Activa

In the used two-wheeler market you can get an older-gen Activa for around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 45,000.

While it was the Kinetic Honda that truly kickstarted the automatic scooter revolution in India, the Honda Activa took it to the next level. Currently, in its sixth generation, the Activa is one of the largest selling two-wheelers in the country. Right now, the top-spec Activa is offered at an on-road price of nearly Rs. 87,000. However, in the used two-wheeler market you can get an older-gen Activa for around Rs. 30,000 to Rs. 45,000 depending on where you look. That’s less than half of the asking price of a brand new one.

TVS Jupiter

You can get a used TVS Jupiter for around Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000.

The TVS Jupiter is yet another popular offering in the 110 cc scooter segment and the closest rival to the Activa. Right now, the scooter is sold at an on-road Delhi price that starts around Rs. 81,000 and goes up to above Rs. 99,000. However, in the used two-wheeler market you can get a fairly new Jupiter for around Rs. 40,000 to Rs. 50,000.

Suzuki Access 125

In the used two-wheeler market you can get the Access for around Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 60,000, depending on the model year.

The Suzuki Access is right now one of the most popular offerings in the 125 cc segment possible one of the most expensive ones as well. Sold at an on-road starting price of around Rs. 90,000, the top-end Access goes over Rs. 1 lakh. And that’s because the scooter now also comes with smart features like Bluetooth connectivity. However, in the used two-wheeler market you can get the Access for around Rs. 35,000 to Rs. 60,000, depending on the model year.

Suzuki Burgman Street

The Burgman Street is still fairly new in the market so finding one that is in a good condition won’t be difficult.

The Suzuki Burgman Street is yet another popular offering in the 125 cc segment. Its maxi-scooter-like styling has made it an attractive proposition among younger buyers, and it also comes with the optional Bluetooth connectivity function. But, in terms of pricing, it surpasses the Access with an on-road Delhi price of around Rs. 1.04 lakh to Rs. 1.08 lakh. However, if you look in the used two-wheeler market you can get one for around Rs. 60,000 to Rs. 80,000. The Burgman Street is still fairly new in the market so finding one that is in a good condition won’t be difficult.

TVS Ntorq 125

In the used two-wheeler market you can get a used TVS Jupiter for around Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 70,000.

Another popular offering in the 125 cc segment is the TVS Ntorq. It comes with one of the more stylish and sportier designs and thus, like the Burgman Street, is quite popular among younger buyers. It also comes with a range of smart features like a color display, turn-by-turn navigation and more. Similarly, it also commands a heavy price tag that starts around Rs. 94,000 and goes up to over Rs. 1.15 lakh (on-road Delhi). However, in the used two-wheeler market you can get one for around Rs. 50,000 to Rs. 70,000.
