    I have always dreamt of riding and travelling by myself but am too scared of the two-wheelers as I feel I would not be able to handle them. This Honda Read More

    As far as mopeds are concerned, the Honda RS 150R is a lot peppier and a much more capable two-wheeler in terms of performance than. It comes with distinctive sporty Read More

    I love entry level commuter bikes mostly. Side by side, icing on the cake can be if such a bike is performance oriented too. Finally I got both the qualities Read More

Honda RS150R

For new age riders, the Honda RS150R feels nimble and agile, thanks to the slim profile of the overall moped and taller wheels. The bike feels comfortable to steer in tight traffic conditions, making it riding quite an easy task for those who are new to riding.

The four-stroke, single-cylinder, 150cc engine with which the Honda RS150R is equipped with offers best in class performance numbers. The 15.6 PS of maximum power and 13.6Nm of peak torque gives it performance figures comparable to a premium 150cc commuter motorcycle.

Sym VF3i 185

The best thing about the SYM VF3i 185 is the way it looks. For a cub class bike, the SYM VF3i 185 indeed has a very sporty aura with an aggressive design and loud graphics, which makes it look proportionate right from the front to rear. The slim and sharp design language is purely likable for its targeted audience – the urban youth.

It’s not only the design which makes the SYM VF3i 185 look youthful and trendy. The moped is packed with premium features like LED daytime running lamps, LED turn indicators, LED tail lamp and a part digital instrument console, which do make it feel contemporary.

Powering the SYM VF3i 185 is a four-stroke, single-cylinder, liquid-cooled, 183cc engine, which makes it the most powerful cub class bike and the one with the biggest engine in its segment. The maximum power output of 18 PS and a peak torque output of 15.3 Nm makes the SYM VF3i 185 the most powerful cub class bike in the market right now.

Honda RS150R

The overall design of the Honda RS150R looks plain, and while the moped is blessed with loud graphics and eye-catching colour options, the RS150R lacks many modern features to make it feel updated and trendy to catch the attention of young buyers.

For a city oriented daily commuter ride, the Honda RS150R lacks proper luggage hooks as well as a good under seat storage space to hold small things or even a half face helmet with ease.

Sym VF3i 185

The SYM VF3i 185 has a single piece long seat which due to its slim profile, might not be too comfortable for two full-sized adults.

The SYM VF3i 185 lacks a bit in the aspect of practicality, as there is not much sufficient under-seat storage to carry even the smallest of the luggage from point A to point B.

When compared to other cub class bikes from Japanese two-wheeler makers, the SYM VF3i 185 lacks the finesse in the build quality and fit and finish which deters its appeal a bit. Also, the engine despite being best-in-class in terms of performance isn’t too refined as expected and sounds a bit rough at higher rpms.
