When it comes to Honda and Mahindra, there has to be only quality. There has been no compromise on the quality of the vehicles dished out by both Honda and Mahindra. Mahindra entered the two-wheeler segment with a bang and there too their quality spoke volumes for the company.
The Honda Aviator Disc may as well have the shape of a moped, but the bike is equipped with disk brakes and a strong and powerful engine. The bike looks a lot more attractive than an actual moped as it comes with stunning design and eye-catching colors. The bike has two perfectly placed rear view mirrors which gives you a clear view of the back.
The Mahindra Sym Flyte may have inherited its appearance from the TVS Scooty on a greater level, but no doubt, it is a performance-oriented bike. The bike is a lot comfortable to site and to ride. There is enough space to sit comfortably for both the rider and the pillion.
Now let us come to the technicalities of the bike. The Aviator Disc is equipped with 4 stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, OHC engine. The vehicle produces top power of 7 bhp at 7,000 rpm and generates a peak torque of 0.8 kgm at 5,500 rpm.
Now, here is the engine information of the Mahindra bike. The Sym Flyte comes with 4 stroke, single cylinder, air cooled engine. The bike creates a high power of 8 Bhp at 7000 rpm and a maximum torque of 9 Nm at 5500 rpm.
The one good thing you will notice about the Sym Flyte is the space between the seat and the open dickey. This space is called the legroom. It makes it possible even for taller men to ride the bike comfortably.
It is a great pleasure riding the Honda bike. It gives out a good sound of firing and the pickup and acceleration is quite good too. The bike is equipped with 6 liters of fuel tank. This fuel is perfectly fine as one is expected to use it in the city limits in spite of heavy duty engine.
The Mahindra Flyte has a lesser capacity of fuel tank. You can fill only 4.5 liters of fuel in the tank at the most. However, amongst the best features is the four-in-one anti theft magnetic key to protect your bike from thieves.
The front brakes of the Honda Aviator Disc are 190 mm disc, while the rear brakes comprise of 130 mm drum. This goes enough with the bike if the speed and balance of the bike are taken into consideration. The tyre sizes for the bike are 90/90 X 12 for the front and 3.5 X 10 for the rear.
Now, coming to the Mahindra bike, the braking system for both the wheels is 130 mm drum brakes. These are more than sufficient as the speed of the bike is limited. Moreover, this is more of a city bike than a cross-country bike.
The length, the width and the height of the bike is 1802 mm, 707 mm and 1162 mm respectively, with a ground clearance of 145 mm.
Speaking of the Mahindra Sym Flyte, its length is 1790 mm, the width 690 mm while the height is 1100 mm. The bike however falls too short when it comes to the gourd clearance, which is just about 115 mm.
