TVS, maintaining its product expansion spree, has launched the new TVS Wego. The 110cc scooter first launched in 2009 has received a host of changes which should really help it maintain the stronghold it enjoyed in this segment where its primary competition – owing to similar specifications and pricing – would be Suzuki Let’s.
- Rs. 48,857 (Ex-showroom Mumbai).
- Rs. 49,580 (Ex-showroom Mumbai) for the disc brake option.
The Wego has always stood out because of its sharp designing backed by some great performance and efficiency, the 12-inch alloy-wheels, telescopic front suspension and the gas filled rear shock absorbers were signature features of this scooter, all of which by the way have been retained in the 2014 Wego. So moving on to what makes the New TVS Wego, new.
The Wego’s new engine is the 110cc CVT-i engine, also used in the TVS jupiter. The all-Aluminium engine has a higher compression ratio and remapped ignition to help with easy cold starts and the revised ignition provides better combustion and hence better efficiency. There is a new piston used which gives us lesser friction as compared to the previous model. It provides you with peak power of 8 BHP @ 7500 rpm and 8 Nm of torque.
Fuel Efficiency: 62 Kmpl
Cosmetic tweaks are more prominent as usually is the case with an update. Apart from keeping the all-metal body the Wego has incorporated the following new updates:
- Full Digital Console.
- Tubeless Tyres.
- Brake Clamp.
- New Muffler.
- Black Alloy Wheels.
- Redesigned Seats.
- TVS patented Econometer
When it comes to styling, the changes would include, Multi-reflector halogen headlamps, LED tail lamp and new graphics on the side panel making it very distinctive to the previous version. The colour variants offered are:
- Midnight Black.
- Mercury Grey.
- Cappuccino Brown.
- Sporty White.
- Volcano Red.
Dual tones in white and red are also made available.
Direct competition would be the Honda Activa- i, Suzuki Let’s and Yamaha Ray. TVS sure looks prepared to tackle them and the New TVS WEGO seems armed to impress and dominate.
