Aside from the engine power, styling and designs of the units are also something to consider, hence, we carefully highlight these things in this list. Take a good look at your other options in the 125cc scooter segment:

Yamaha Mio i125

One option is the sibling of Mio Soul i125 under its mother brand Yamaha. Opposite to the Mio Soul i125’s dark colors, this scooter’s standard trims are more vibrant and available in lighter colors like magenta, yellow, and vibrant orange (which quite reminds us of the Power Rangers Mighty Morphin).

Yamaha Mio 125i is 4-kilogram lighter in weight as compared to Mio Soul i125 but has the same engine setup. Both scooters also have the Blue Core Technology so they both promise better fuel efficiency. Hence, if you are more about a lighter design and amusing graphics, this one can be a better option for you.

Honda Click 125i

This scooter from Honda is equipped with full LED headlamps, tail lamps, and daytime running lamps, as well as a full digital instrument console - some things you might miss with Mio Soul i125. Although it has the same edgy design with Soul i125, it performs better in terms of maximum power which is 11 horsepower and 10.8 Nm torque, thanks to its single-cylinder, four-stroke, liquid-cooled SOHC 125cc engine.

Honda Click 125i

Honda Click 125i has a sports style muffler design with aluminum end cap and tubeless tires for the front and rear wheels. One thing to consider about choosing Honda Click 125i over Mio Soul i125 is its 18-liter compartment. You can definitely fit a full-face helmet and some personal belongings in here.

When it comes to the weight, this is slightly heavier than Mio Soul i125 but is longer given its length of 1919 mm. Among its competitors in the 125cc scooter segment, this is by far the most digitized and is also dubbed as the most powerful and refined scooters in its class. If that is something that impresses you, then you can opt for this one instead.

Suzuki SkyDrive FI

Japanese automaker Suzuki gives a close competitor to Honda and Yamaha through its Suzuki SkyDrive FI. Although this has lower power output of 9 horsepower and 9.5Nm than its closest competitor, you can take advantage of the other features that this scooter has. It has a distinctive styling and has a royalty feel.

Its models are available in Black, Red, Pink, and Violet.
