Spied – New TVS scooter spotted once again
Nithyanandh K, As a toddler, those wheeled machinery fascinated me even before I knew what they’re called as! So here I'm, petrolhead by birth, Mechanical engineer by qualification and automotive reporter by profession!
We all know that TVS is almost ready with a new automatic scooter which is being tested extensively.
We have brought you quite a few spyshots of the new TVS scooter. Here are two more, this time from Autocarindia.com.
It’s believed that TVS has lent a few test mules to prospective customers to get their feedback before bringing the scooter to the market. What you see here could be once such test mule.
To recap everything, the yet to be named scooter will be powered by the Wego’s 110cc mill which develops 8 bhp. The scooter is slightly bigger than the Wego (to have a better unisex appeal). Design wise, the scooter imitates the segment leader Honda Activa. Also note the fuel filler located externally at the aft like in the Wego.
The scooter is expected to sit above the Scooty Pep+ and the Wego. TVS hopes that it would have a better chance in the fight against Honda if it has another new scooter in its lineup.
Including the recently unveiled Activa-i, Honda has a sturdy lineup of four automatic scooters (the other three are the Activa, Aviator and Dio), all with similar hardware but spaced apart from each other in terms of design, equipment and pricing.
Expect the new scooter to be launched anytime soon.
