India’s leading two-wheeler maker TVS along with Jive clutch-less motorbike had launched the unisex gearless scooter Wego last year. The Scooty models from the TVS have good sales numbers to show off and that gave them a good experience back-up to produce this new automatic transmission scooterette.
However, TVS Scooty pleased the women riders in large and TVS was not all pervasive in that regard. Their main aim was to compete with Honda Aviator and Suzuki Access and the answer to this came — dang as TVS Wego, which is a scooter. TVS is promoting the Wego as a scooter for him and her and one for city. With the launch of the Wego TVS Motors becomes the first Indian auto maker to boast most range of scooters. This includes Scooty, Scooty Pep, Sccoty Teenz, and also the TVS Scooty Streak. The Wego joins this wagon and it happens to be the first total metal-bodied scooterette from the TVS stable.
In terms of technology and style Wego has nothing to boast off as against its contemporary rivals but the rice quoted is definitely is a major plus of this scooter. Wego is powered by 110cc engine that generates 8.4 Bhp @ 7500 rpm and torque of 8Nm at 5500 rpm. The body-balance technology in Wego offer great comfort and handling especially it in the heavy traffic the vehicle glides smoothly. Besides, the all-aluminum engine assures to provide best in the class mileage as well.
With Wego TVS becomes the only company to offer a wide range of scooters in the entry level. The Wego is available in cappuccino brown, golden beige, silver, black and dark blue at a price of Rs 42,500 (on road approximately Rs 45,000). Should the TVS promote the family-friendly scooter and makes it more reachable to the buying prospects, Honda and Suzuki will have trouble and serious competitor for Activa and Access. TVS Motors also reiterated that they aim to sell 15000 units of the multi-user scooter Wego every month. Honda! Are you reading this?
