TVS Scooty Zest could possibly launch on August 20
The TVS Scooty family has a new sibling. In this case it is not a tiny engined sister but a more powerful and stylish big brother in the shape of the Scooty Zest all set to launch on 20th August. Previewed at the Auto Expo in February 2014, The Zest did draw attention to itself for its styling plus the engine, which at 110 cc outputs 8NM torque and 8 BHP power in tandem with a V-Matic CVT Gear box. The family resemblance is there in that the Zest has the same lines as the earlier Pep and Streak and even sports the same air cooled CVT1 engine but it is the looks that are in the spotlight.
If the Pep appealed to gals with its colorful looks and compact, neat shape, the Zest will capture the hearts of women. It is available in vibrant colors, is powerful and could easily go on to become as popular as the Pep did. Electric blue is just one color from a colorful palette that will appeal to girls and the Zest could well become a fashion accessory when it starts scooting along on Indian roads from 20th August onwards. Surprise, surprise, the headlight is LED which means it will last for a longer time and will pose fewer headaches for girls who hate to take their scoots to the garages. Even the turn indicators and tail light has LEDs. The instrument panel has undergone design changes and the speedometer has backlighting. Fuel efficiency figures are not available. The Pep gave 65 Kmpl and the Wego promised and optimistic 60. Since Indian buyers are fuel efficiency minded this could be a deciding factor in its popularity ranking.
