List of Best Automatic Scooter in Philippines under Php 80,000
Suzuki Skydrive Fi
The Skydrive Fi is one of the most affordable automatic scooters that Suzuki Philippines has on offer. It is powered by a 124cc single-cylinder SOHC engine that makes 9.25 hp at 7,500 rpm and 9.5 Nm of torque at 6,500 rpm. Thanks to the advanced fuel injection system on the Skydrive Fi, which Suzuki introduced a few years after the launch of the carburetted version in 2009, both the performance and fuel efficiency are impressive. Another impressive feature that you will appreciate on the Suzuki Skydrive Fi specs sheet is the front disc brake. It really helps in the braking performance of the scooter.
In terms of design, the Skydrive Fi looks decently styled. But there is nothing very attractive about it. Perhaps, age has taken a toll on it. Maybe female buyers would still have an affinity for it.
