Auto Expo 2014: New TVS Scooty Zest preview
Not to be confused with Tata Motors new compact sedan, TVS Motor Company’s new Scooty Zest is actually a grown up, full-fledged scooter. The Scooty has been TVS's most successful scooter brand, and till TVS rolled out the Wego a few years back, it alone helped TVS Motor ride the rising wave in scooter sales.

The Scooty Zest does look strikingly different from the side and rear three-quarters. The boomerang shaped side panel, in particular, is a very attractive design element. We also like the LED tail lamps.
