Top Five Scooters for Tall Men

The market is filled with options and a wide range when it comes to motorbikes for men. After all, men prefer their bikes. However, slowly and steadily, the new diversification of the two-wheeler market in to scooters has started to manufacture products catering to the demands of men who prefer to go for automatic transmission. Read on to find out more about which scooters serve their marketed purpose well.

In the realm of scooters, it's not an easy thing, catering to a guy's needs. Men are interested in knowing the tech specs, such as maximum torque, mileage, maximum speed flat-out, and for those shifting from a motorbike to a scooter, they want the power. They will only ride a machine that is comfortable for their height, and heavy. They want more metal, they want to feel the drum of the engine and match it to their heartbeat. Men want to be the machine, instead of just using it as a mode of conveyance.
Keeping the transport-related needs of men in mind, this list has been compiled. It includes the top five scooters built specifically for men.

#5: Honda Activa

People might say the Activa is a women's vehicle, but let's face it: it is one of the most popular scooters today, between both, men and women. The Honda Activa was well-timed in its initiation into the scooter market: entering just when people were beginning to fall back on scooters from bikes. Of course, it helped that women were controlling their independence better and were beginning to choose their own commodity for aiding personal mobility. However, men weren't too far behind when it came to opting for the Honda.
It has a decent set of specs, considering the duration for which it has remained in the market. With a 110 cc engine, the scooter provides a maximum torque of about 7bhp, and about 8Nm of torque, which is comparable to newer models in the market. It has a saddle height of 760 mm, which should be comfortable for bigger men, but perhaps not for the really big ones. The metal is sturdy and looks are sleek, which isn't too bad a choice for men, either!

#4: TVS Jupiter

Let's begin with an indigenous scooter. The TVS Jupiter was introduced in the market solely as a scooter that was made for men. With its tagline "Enjoying Doing More", it is quite evident that TVS has gone ahead and served to bigger, bulkier men a scooter on silver platter. It has a saddle height of 765mm, the Jupiter is large enough to be comfortably ridden by men, especially those of taller stature. Its 110cc engine gives it a maximum power of 8bhp of power, providing a torque of 8Nm. Those who know their wheels would know that the range offered by the TVS Jupiter is quite remarkable for its class (which is said to be the same as TVS Wego).
The TVS Jupiter adds to the party with a host of features and ergonomics like an external fuel lid, fuel efficiency assisting power modes, rear gas shock absorber and a pass-by switch. However, it dampens all this excitement on the style front, where it looks rather plain and does not stand in the crowd. But then again, when did men start caring about how they looked?

#3: Hero Maestro

If Ranbir Kapur is able to make a girl's mood better on a Maestro, then it has to be worth a look, right? The best part about scooters advertised for a particular audience, is that they make it easy to critically review them. Reviewers like me are able to examine only select points and claim appropriateness of a particular product. For example, the Hero Maestro has a saddle height of 770 mm, which is considerably good for tall men. It has a 110 cc engine, which is able to deliver a maximum power of 8 bhp, with a torque of 9 Nm. It's not so bad considering its competition is mostly in the urban sectors.
A salient feature of this scooter is that even at 60 kmph, there is hardly any vibrations. The two-wheeler goes 0 – 60 in 10.51 seconds, which is amazing in areas with lesser traffic. This "Such a Boy Thing" scooter can reach a high speed of 90 kmph, without causing even the slightest vibrational discomfort! Its front suspension is a bottom link with spring loaded hydraulic dampers and a single rear suspension providing for smoother transitions to lower speeds. All in all, definitely "Such a Boy Thing"!

#2: Kinetic Blaze

Though the saddle height for Kinetic Blaze is the same as TVS Jupiter at 765 mm, the Blaze offers so much more in terms of performance of the vehicle. Designed by Mr. Leopold Tartarini, the Kinetic Blaze is everything Italian when it comes to scooters (apart from the fact that it does not belong to Piaggio Vespa). It has an amazing engine with a 165 cc capacity. All that is translated into a maximum power of 11.6 bhp with a maximum torque of 12 Nm! Men would know how much power that is when compared to other scooters available in the market!
The Kinetic Blaze is fitted with front telescopic suspension and twin rear suspension. Thus, it can be said the Blaze is specifically design to facilitate smooth riding on even bad roads! Being as heavy as the Bajaj Pulsor, Honda Unicorn, and other 150 cc bikes, the Blaze is stable even at very high speeds. And, it is designed smartly to add zing to the ride. All in all, a totally manly scooter.

#1: Honda Aviator

With the Aviator, Honda introduced a scooter to cater specifically to the male population of the country. The Honda Aviator packs a punch in all departments, inclusive of looks and style. The scooter is specifically designed for tall riders. How? That's because it has a saddle height of 790 mm; the highest in its class. It has enough leg room, in tandem with the height requirements of tall men, but that's not where they draw the USP line. The underseat storage space is big enough for an entire mouth guard helmet. With a broad seat designed for the comfort of tall riders, bikes just got a new rival in the two-wheeler market.
As far as the tech specs are concerned, the Honda Aviator has a 110 cc engine with the ability to deliver a maximum power of 8 bhp and a maximum torque of 8.55 Nm, which is a good deal in its class, all ergonomics and features considered. Keeping up with their fuel efficiency promise, this Honda vehicle delivers 60 kmpl mileage. Conclusively, a good investment.
