Here’s a look at the top five gasoline scooter launches in 2021 that impressed us.
From the TVS Jupiter 125 to the Yamaha Aerox 155, here are the top 5 scooter launches of 2021
2021 is drawing to a close and what a ride it was. From long-awaited launches to lots of challenges, the year was pretty mixed for the automotive industry, but that didn’t stop manufacturers from impressing us with new offerings. In fact, there were a few in the two-wheeler segment to revive subdued demand. In 2021, it was mainly electric products, especially e-scooters, that came onto the market. But that doesn’t mean the gasoline powered scooters have been forgotten. There were many new petrol scooters to talk about and some of them even drew us to the heart. Here’s a look at the top five gasoline scooter launches in 2021 that impressed us.

TV Jupiter 125
TVS Motor Company has expanded its range of scooters to include a new 125 cc scooter in the form of the Jupiter 125. As an extension of the Jupiter family, the new offering was designed from the ground up and turned out to be very impressive and met almost all of the needs of the epitome of a family scooter. Powerful motor, larger proportions, comfortable ergonomics and more, the TVS Jupiter 125 has ticked the right boxes.
Yamaha Aerox 155
If you thought we’d complete this list without the Yamaha Aerox 155, you were wrong. Yamaha India dared a leap of faith and brought the Aerox 155 into the country as a thoroughly sporty scooter. Shared its engine with the R15, the Aerox 155 didn’t want to please the masses, but rather wanted comfort and performance in one delicious package. It’s also attractively priced and makes a great alternative to the premium commuter motorcycles in the 150-200cc segment.

Aprilia SR 160 facelift
The Aprilia SR 160 got a major cosmetic upgrade this year to bring the sporty scooter in line with the new offers in the segment. LED headlights, revamped lines, new graphics, and more, the SR 160 looks fresh and for those looking for an unconstrained sports scooter this is an offering that should be high on your list.
Yamaha Fascino 125 FI Hybrid
The Yamaha Fascino 125 FI Hybrid brought a fun and cool retro personality with some new technology to give her a head start in the segment. In the same place as the TVS Jupiter 125, the Fascino 125 promises more elegant styling, lively performance, quick acceleration and improved efficiency thanks to its mild hybrid technology. It still remains the tallest vehicle in its class and that definitely makes it easier to drive than some of its competitors.

Suzuki Avenis 125
After a long time, Suzuki Motorcycle India celebrated a kind of comeback in the scooter segment with a completely new range. The Suzuki Avenis 125 wants to be the rival of the NTorq 125 without looking overly sporty. It promises to pack the goodness of the Access 125, albeit for a younger and more discerning clientele, and that makes it a scooter to watch out for. But we still have to drive it.
