The Maestro is very good at pick up, mileage, awesome appearance and this is more better than Activa. I felt Maestro is much good while compared with any other scooters. Even after crossing 6000 kms it is going on superb condition.

I have purchased Maestro few days back and its total 150 KMs of run as on 20.11.12. It has given me Mileage of 41.7 in the City drive conditions (some time only one passenger, some time two adult, some time two adult with two children also). However the company people were saying that it will give 30-35 of Mileage till 3rd service and after 3rd service it will give 55-60. So the Mileage is perfect infect more as per their say. The Scooter is very good, head lights are very powerful, pick-up is also excellent but plastic body is the drawback. Over all, if plastic body does not make any concern for one, the Scooter is very good infect excellent. Published on 2012-11-21 14:56:18
