The TVS Scooty Zest, which was displayed at the 2014 Auto Expo in New Delhi earlier this year, is scheduled to be launched on the 20th August 2014. The new automatic scooter will witness quite a few changes from the Scooty Pep +, which was a raging hit amongst women.
The appearance of the Scooty Zest is akin to the Scooty Pep +, albeit in a more contemporary avatar. It will feature a more powerful 110cc single cylinder engine with a CVT transmission that will produce 8bhp. This is the same engine that is currently being used in the Wego and the Jupiter. The efficiency of the bike is claimed to be around 62kmpl. The Zest will also get LED tail lights, a larger floorboard, a new speedo console, and an alloy pillion grab rail.
By the looks of it, the Scooty Zest seems like a refreshing change over the current Scooty models, which hadn’t been updated for a long time. While you’ll have to wait till the 20th for the official pricing to be revealed, we expect the scooter to be priced at around Rs 48,000 (ex-showroom).
