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.

Yamaha 135LC

The lean profile of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is something which comes handy while tackling the worst of the urban traffic with ease and comfort. The slim tyres, as well as thin body profile of the 135LC Super Sport, makes it feel nimble and agile to ride.

For an entry-level moped, the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport’s 135cc single-cylinder engine is quite powerful and refined. The power and torque figures are in the league of a 150cc scooter, which gives it an impressive power to weight ratio.

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.

Yamaha 135LC

The cost consciousness of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is evident with the absence of many modern features in the moped. The 135LC Super Sport lacks any of the trendy features like LED lights, digital meters, which makes it feel a bit old fashioned and built to cost.

While the single piece seat of the Yamaha 135LC Super Sport is long enough to seat two adults, the limited width and lack of cushioning makes it feel uncomfortable for longer commutes.
