We’ve been telling you about TVS Motor Company working on new scooters and the two-wheeler maker has now released an official teaser giving a glimpse of its upcoming scooter. The company will unveil the mystery scooter on February 5, 2018 and the model is expected to take cues from the Graphite scooter concept that was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. The teaser video shows the LED tailight on the model with the exhaust note’s audio in the background. Incidentally, the same scooter was spied testing recently, sporting a host of segment first bits.
TVS is likely to reveal the TVS scooter early next month with a full-fledged debut at the 2018 Auto Expo. Previous spy shots revealed an LCD instrument console, alloy wheels and a daytime running light (DRL) as well. The headlamp cluster is mounted on the front apron while the indicators are mounted on the handlebar cowl. Spy images also revealed an external fuel cap and split grab rails on the offering.
Details on the engine isn’t out yet but the upcoming TVS scooter could possibly use a 125 cc single-cylinder engine. It would be interesting to see if the scooter uses a hybrid powertrain setup, which would explain the need of a more sophisticated LCD console to showcase battery output, range, efficiency and more.
TVS’ upcoming scooter is likely to be near production while details on the launch timeline should be available next month. The teaser certainly has our hopes high on what the Hosur-based manufacturer has to offer and we will be keeping a close eye on the offering. Make sure to keep watching this space for all the details on the TVS offering and from the 2018 Auto Expo.[“Source-ndtv”]
