TVS Scooty Zest 110: Long Term Review, Fleet


The TVS Scooty Zest 110 joins the ZigWheels fleet. We tell you more about it

Now I am not much of a scooter guy, but I appreciate them for the convenience they have to offer, especially in a city like Mumbai. Moreover, considering how crowded it is on the streets, higher horsepower doesn't quite bring bragging rights along with it, efficiency does. Well, in some cases at least. 

 

Considering that a majority of the times I have ridden the Scooty Zest 110 to work and back has been during peak hours through bumper to bumper traffic and with that in mind the 52.3kmpl efficiency that it has returned is quite impressive. 

 

The TVS Scooty Zest 110 has been with us for around a month and during this time I haven’t quite been able to spend enough time on the saddle but the little that I have ridden it, has been enough to understand that its light 98.5kg weight makes it absolutely easy to ride. You can easily find your way through traffic without breaking a sweat. Now, keep in mind that this one is a higher-end variant of the Scooty Pep and is mainly targeted towards women and the weight makes quite a difference.

What’s more, with just 3kg of added weight over the Scooty Pep+, this one not a slightly higher displacement but also 3PS and 3Nm more. Now these might seem like small numbers but they make a huge contribution in the peppiness of the engine. 

 

There’s lot of space to store your stuff too. It has a 19-litre underseat storage capacity, among the best in class mind you, and if that isn’t enough, there is also more space below the handle bar. In the upcoming few months I would love to spend a little more time with the TVS Scooty Zest 110 to get a better feel of how it can manage in the ruthless Mumbai traffic. Keep watching this space for regular updates.
