Hi Sam, I dont own Access but I had ridden it from Suzuki's showroom in Wagle estate which I doubt if it exists today. The moment you go towards wagle estate through passport office-->Millenium Toyota -->or MTNL you hit a cross road, just take right and another 100 meters was this showroom ...which may not exist today as it doesnt reflect in the dealers list. Anyways here's the link for Suzuki and also the nearest dealers for you: ULHASNAGAR MRP Automobile Pvt. Ltd. Vikranta Appartment, Shop No. 1, Ground Floor, Shantinagar, Kalyan Ambernath Road Ulhasnagar - 421003 Maharashtra - West Tel.: 9324794651, 9322037676, 022-2708977 MUMBAI Laxmi Bikes Pvt.Ltd. 10,Bonanza Arcade,S.V.Road,Amboli,Andheri (West) Mumbai - 400058 Maharashtra - West Tel.: 022- 26791133, 44, 55, 66, 26791777 Malad Suzuki Akshay Automobiles Pvt.

I suggest you test drive both first. After this try to figure out what exactly are you looking at in these least 3 most important things. e.g. pickup for at least 2 people, economy which happens to be same, reliability which is again the same and so on. The drawback of access is they d...on't have many service center if compared to Honda. You will see too many Honda activa's on road and feel assured while access is just catching on. I hope I have not ended confusing you more!!Read More

Harsha, You are wrong regarding middle and rear seats also, they are fixed meaning cant be horizontally moved which doesnt meant that the back rest cant be adjusted. I observed the E-6 version with black interiors and it still feels claustrophic for me and as said may be due to very dark interior.... Dont go by specs, try utilizing the space and see what happens. A family of 4-6 will just wonder where to put their shopping goods as there's next to no space at rear. Interestingly I just returned without a test-ride from showroom showing their interest in customers (after getting calls from the same to come and have test ride) so cant comment on other aspects.Read More

FZ-16 sports the shortest (full 3 inches shorter then the shortest viz. the H Unicorn) & softest seat in class thereby making life miserable for pillion rider unless its an hugging opposite sex. Mud guards are best in class both front and rear though its not raining here but it shall keep away dirt good as any other bike in its class if not better. Anyways all bikes offer more or less the same kind of dirt protection in wet conditions unless one does some customized modifications.Read More

As said in my review, Kinetic group as usual is heard of giving up their 2-wheeler business hopefully to Mahindras!! so their lack of focus or business confusion continues while customers are surely at receiving end. Well what more can I say than best of luck to Kinetic product buyers because none o...f the 2-wheeler companies of same category had so good and bright start but yet failed to deliver and continues to do so!!Read More

Its all about technology you see!! Even the fuel economy is superior in Access as I have had a talk with couple of Access owners. Its falling between 45 to 50 KMPL city ride................Advantage Access.

Access Tank capacity 6.4 L Flyte Tank capacity 5 L Advantage Access, more reserve. Access Underseat space 20 Not surprisingly this was not available with Kinetic, though the understorage of Kinetic is stepped and I think since its stepped it may have advantage over Access but I forgot to place my MPA-roam helmet in Kinetic which I had done in Access, hence only assumption for this.

I thought to add some specification comparo between Flyte & Access post small test drive of flyte because Flyte disappointed me in all areas save for looks and that to some section (front fairing) and I always thought that there should be more to this dissapointment. Now I think Access only has one ...drawback in comparision to Flyte viz the on road prize which is beyond 3.5K else it beats Flyte in all aspects. Some of you may have heard the SYM for first time in your life and that too due to advertisements. SYM as you all know now is a group from Taiwan founded in 1961 but started manufacturing motorcycle from 1962 with a joint venture with Honda Motor Japan!! The 3 years warranty that Kinetic boast is nothing but this durability from SYM group for the engine. In similar, but more stronger lines is Suzuki which we all know since the days of Ind-Suzuki and Suzuki worldwide and it will not take a genius to recognize which group is technologically more reliable. Also before I forget, the fit and finish of Flyte is not upto mark when compared to Access and just to site an example, try putting both the scooter or their pix side by side and have a look at their speedo meter and its decal and you will know. I didn’t get a feeling that Flyte is built to last which I did get with Access and as well as Activa which I used for >5 years. Also do one more thing, ride with a pillion on flyte and access (exceed 110 Kgs) and drive both the scooter to a gradient and through a speed braker you will not be surprised with the results!! Anyways some interesting specifications comparo post these comments follows:Read More

Jagaades, The monoshock observations and rear tyre behaviour are unique. Let me try to give a solution. Make sure air pressure is adequate which I think is the first reason for this to happen and that too because of less air pressure which I think is complimented by soft mono shock adjustment. So...lo let the rear tyre pressure be 33 psi and if double seated it should be 41 and this actually becomes a dicy situation because we can never predict when we may go solo or double seated. Work out a middle path and 38 should be fine which I do with my bike. Front tyres always stays 25 psi and all these are according to HMSI specifications (excepting the 38 psi figure which works fine with me). Once this is done stiffen the mono shock by inserting a small crow bar in slots of mono shock and turning it from silencer end to the gear end (clock wise) and you will also find the direction mark given on the mono shock itself. At first instance just turn it one hole (step) stiffer and see the effect for some time and if not suitable you can tighten it further after a weeks time. Make sure you turn the mono shock step by step from one slot to another or else you may end up damaging the monoshock. It also seems that you are not adjusting your chain otherwise it never has a noise or bangs on the chain cover if properly tightened and lubricated from time to time. Regarding gear shift...its having the best gear shift in business and one must be really skillful to put Honda Unicorn into a false neutral or something!! while talking of lights during rain....even the bike with best headlights (or for that matter even some cars) dont work in rains and its a subject by itself!!Read More

Vinod, Do not go by influenced verdit or rather be more diplomatic. If I take your point they have not voted it as number. 1, but they selected flyte as their choice amongst 5 scooter viz. Flyte, Access, Activa, Pleasure and Pep. Try to analyse the entire test report and you will why I have used the word influenced / inspired. Access and Flyte in their test scores same star points (4.5) point; Pickup...Access wins hands down, in fact the pickup of Flyte is dismal and takes more then twice as much time as required by Access to go to 60 Kmph!! isn't it?; Access doing 0-60 in 6 seconds is mindboggling and you can see some serious bikes left behind gracefully!!. Ground clearance of Access is more 160 mm compared to Flyte and if you read the report carefully excepting the looks and storage space it has nothing more or superior to offer then Access and add to that the CONFUSED Kintetic group and may be down the line some 8-10 moths or less Flyte may be stopped as almost all their past scooters or bikes. Flyte may find more women buyer while Access may have Activa like appeal. I see Access as Pulsar and Yamaha RX 100....creating its own niche albeit with more reliability..Read More

When asked for availability they said red colour was in stock and can be given in 7 days and for rest of the colours it will be first week of December 2007. Try other Suzuki dealers to find the fastest delivery or else no other option but to wait. Both the vehicle Activa and Access are worth their w...ait though.Read More

Ormaz, I agree with what you say the quality of Hero Honda is better then HMSI and probably its due to Hero being a local group who understands India and Indian Psyche better while Japs play safe or else by now all the majors like Honda, Yamaha et. al would have pulled out some excellent bikes their never ending stable. But then they are here for business and they dont want to loose money :-) it seems. Yes I also agree for Motul and if I am not wrong its price stands 1000 plus INR as compared to 275 INR per litre and its a true synthetic oil as is not the case with Swift which is a blend. Regarding the exhaust, its not perforated as of now due to the care I take post every monsoon. The rusting as usual is more pronounced at the engine bend. Thanks for sharing and communicating. Bye the way do you know any shop which keeps Motul in Mumbai or Thane anywhwere?Read More

Manu, Karizma when compared to the one which it should be (Pulsar 220) pales out in every aspect save for reliability that too due to Karizma being tried and tested for so many years. Of late the Bajaj engine's refinement has gone up tremendously. I suggest you test ride Pulsar 220 and then decid...e between Karizma and Pulsar 220 both are good but Pulsar 220 will give you tubeless tyres, digi panels and loads of goods that Karizma cant offer and that too at a very competitive prize. Karizma's handling at higher speed is better and is more planted then Pulsar 220 though.Read More
