Spied – Speedometer of the new TVS scooter revealed
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!
By now, we all know that TVS is on the verge of launching a new automatic scooter.
The new TVS scooter has been caught testing a number of times and here is the latest set of spyshots. Mr. Chidanand Haluvalli, a reader of Bikeadvice.in has managed to click the test mule up close in Bengaluru.
It appears that TVS is using some prospective customers to test the scooter and the mule spotted seems to be one such example. That explains the local registration plates. It’s usual for two wheeler manufacturers to get feedback on customers’ first hand experience just before the market launch of the product.
To recap, the new TVS automatic scooter is essentially a TVS Wego with a new top hat. The two wheeler is powered by the same 110cc four stroke mill of the Wego but sports bigger body panels for a unisex appeal. The motor develops 8bhp of power and 8 Nm of torque and is mated to a CVT.
Designed to compete with the segment leader, the Honda Activa, the new scooter from TVS is noticeably larger than the Wego. The spyshot reveals the speedometer of the scooter partially. From what we see, the unit is different from that of the Wego.
Considering that the scooter has already reached the customer feedback phase, we can expect TVS to launch it anytime soon.
