As per the surfaced online reports it has been found that the TVS Motors is heading towards the premium scooter segment by 2019. The scooter which we can witness could be a 150cc maxi styled scooter that is under development as per the sources. Further reports suggest it will be an offering based on the Entorq 210cc concept showcased at the 2016 Auto Expo. With its bunch of futuristic looks and advanced features, the concept managed to turn head of gathered audience at the event.
In terms of power, the scooter will be packed with a 150cc powertrain in place of a 210cc unit. Maybe the decision of putting lower displacement engine is taken owing to enhance the rideability along with keeping development cost in check. As per the sayings around, the equipped powertrain will be an all-new unit with the top self fuel injection system which not only helps in endowing excellent performance but also offer satisfactory mileage figures.
About the periphery, we can see the projection of the Concept scooter as it’s pretty stylish and intended to pull the active audience base (Youth). However, the components such as the Smart Connect system and the switchgear will be the shared bits from already on sale scooter the Ntorq 125. It will help the bike maker to keep the pricing in check.
Furthermore, we can expect a navigation system with the provided list of advanced features. Whereas, the fitments such as keyless go and the single-channel ABS will directly be grabbed from the Concept scooter. As expected the scooter will be a premium offering with quality features and furnishing.
Mind you, this 150cc maxi-styled scooter will also be produced at the brand manufacturing unit in Hosur. Where the co-partners BMW products like the BMW G310R and the G310 GS are also being crafted. Important aspects for any two-wheeler products like the new techs and quality will also be improved under the guidance of exotic manufacturer.
On a happy note, India will be the first country to get the availability of this upcoming Maxi scooter. Later, it will also be exported for the developing countries.
