The TVS Graphite has been spotted testing in Bengaluru. Detailed shots taken by Irfan Ahmed Vlogs reveal some interesting details about the upcoming performance scooter.
The TVS Graphite gets a halogen headlamp, with what appears to be an LED DRL at the base. The instrument cluster is fully digital, and the screen looks large enough to be multifunctional. The switchgear quality looks premium, and on the right side, there is an engine kill switch as well. The seat cover features red stitching, and the scooter comes with an external fuel cap, just behind the seat. The tail light is LED, but the indicators are of bulb type. The front indicators are on the handlebar cowl.
The 12-inch alloys are shod with TVS tyres, and brakes include petal disc at the front and drum at the rear. The front suspension includes telescopic fork, while the rear sports a single red shock absorber. The scooter will likely be TVS’ performance offering in the scooter segment. While the engine details are unknown, expect a 125 cc engine with fuel injection, or perhaps even a bigger 150 cc engine. If it is the latter, it will lock horns with the Aprilia SR 150, which is the only performance scooter in the segment.

TVS Motor showcased the concept version of the scooter at the 2014 Auto Expo. The technological innovation on the Graphite was its AMT gearbox with paddle shifters. It used an active LED console to display vital vehicle information, ride data and provide connectivity.
