On the outside, both the scooter get a very aggressive and bold styling. There are edgy and sharp body panels along with a sportier set of graphics on both the scooters. Both the models use LED headlamps as well as DRLs. While the Aerox come with sporty graphics with a multicolour layout, the Vario instead gets a clean, single-tone paint scheme, which makes it look a bit more sophisticated.
