KOZHIKODE: The city gets one more scooter, quite an apt one for our roads and weather conditions. Presenting the new TVS Wego! The first generation Wego, which was launched in 2009 was a success mostly due to its sharp styling and great performance. Now the new generation Wego is the only scooter in India with an all-metal body and this makes it stand out from the rest of the scooters in the segment. With the launch of this new Wego scooter by TVS Motor Company, the competition in the 110 cc scooter segment seems to have heated up.
The fairer sex is most likely to prefer this scooter over many others in the competition mostly due to its stylish features, size and easy manoeuvrability.
Those planning to buy the new TVS Wego are most likely to compare it against the likes of Honda Activa i, Yamaha Ray and Suzuki Let's. With a complete metal body much like the earlier version of the scooter, it comes with many new features such as TVS patented econometer, a full digital console, tubeless tyres, parking brakes and stylish muffler. Fresh graphics on the side panel gives the scooter an uber cool look. It also comes with multi-reflector halogen lamps and an LED tail lamp. Its appealing new look earned the scooter the India Design Mark Award 2014 by the India Design Council. The company has also retained some of the earlier unique features like the twelve-inch alloy wheels, telescopic front suspension and first-in-class gas-filled rear shock absorbers.
Coming to what makes the machine what it really is, the scooter is powered by the same 109.7cc single cylinder, air-cooled four-stroke engine, which was a part of the earlier version of Wego as well. The Wego's new engine is also used in the TVS Jupiter. The company has incorporated an all-aluminium engine which gives off a power of 8.1PS @ 7500rpm and 8Nm torque. Coming to the mileage part, the company offers a mileage of 62 km/l. The new Wego is also available in some amazing new shades. The monotone shades are: Midnight Black, Mercury Grey, Cappuccino Brown, Sporty White and Volcano Red. TVS has also introduced two new dual tone colours - dual tone white and dual tone red.
The scooter carries a price tag of `58,500 in Kozhikode city.
