    Grande Punto 1.3 90 HP
    Took TD of Ray
    1) Underpowered 115 c.c. [ Even 115 cc old Kinetic Nova pulls effortlessly]
    2) High NVH
    3) Poor build quality

    Totally failed model. IMO Yamaha has lost grip in 2 wheeler market

    I bought one for my wife 3 months back and I totally agree with your first point. It feels little under powered when compared to Dio and Activa. but i don't think the NVH and build quality is poor. It is in par with Acvtiva if not better. But the main point is ride quality is really good.
