An electric two-wheeler could make you feel a lot of things. It could thrill you, make you feel excited, and it could also make you feel sporty. And the new TVS X is one such electric scooter that can make you go – Even scooters can be sporty. We got to ride the TVS X electric scooter, albeit just for 15 minutes, on a track and we have some opinions about the new EV. So, let’s dive in.

Looks:

The TVS X doesn't just look good; it oozes style and attitude. Sporting an aggressive body design and sporty aesthetics, this scooter stands out in the crowd. The vertically stacked LED headlight and aerodynamic front profile give it a unique appeal. What's more, it's bigger than most scooters in India, but that doesn't compromise its handling. In fact, its generous size translates into exceptional comfort.

Comfort:

Despite its sporty demeanour, the TVS X doesn't compromise on rider and pillion comfort. It boasts an upright riding posture with raised handlebars and a spacious seat. Even taller riders will find it accommodating. Plus, the suspension handles road imperfections decently, ensuring a comfortable ride. The rear suspension might have a quicker rebound, but it's something that could improve with a pillion.

Ride & Handling:

The TVS X is not just about comfort; it's about confidence and control. Thanks to a unique spine on the floorboard, riders can easily grip it with their feet and legs, providing a sporty, motorcycle-like feel. Despite its weight and size, the scooter feels remarkably light and nimble. It's easy to manoeuvre, making it a joy to handle, especially on the track.

Performance:

Now, the question on everyone's mind – is the TVS X fast and exciting to ride? The answer is a resounding yes. This sporty electric scooter has a responsive motor that delivers a thrilling riding experience. It can reach speeds of 80kmph quickly, and while it may take a bit more time to go beyond that, it's still quite impressive for a scooter. We'll provide more insights after a comprehensive road test, but during our review, the scooter shut off twice. We were informed that this is a safety measure to prevent overheating during aggressive use.

Braking:

Good speed demands good stopping power, and the TVS X doesn't disappoint in this department. The front brake offers a sharp bite and excellent progression, providing riders with the confidence to push the scooter to its limits. Interestingly, the rear brake also offers a sharp bite, but be cautious – it can lock up the wheel.

Features:

The TVS X is loaded with features, and the 10-inch TFT console is a standout. It can be adjusted for better visibility and is as intuitive to use as a tablet. You can even watch videos, surf the internet, play music, and access a full-fledged navigation system. And the best part? You can start the scooter using the console, your smartphone, or even a smartwatch, perfect for those always on the move.

Verdict:

Now, the crucial bit: the price. At an ex-showroom price of Rs 2,49,990, the TVS X might make your wallet sweat a bit. While it's an impressive scooter with great features, looks, and performance, it's too early to judge if the price is justified or if it's practical for everyday use. To get a complete picture, we need to take the TVS X for a thorough road test under real-world conditions. So stay tuned for our detailed review on ZigWheels.

In conclusion, the TVS X is a sporty and unique addition to the market, promising an exciting ride. We can't wait to put it through its paces and share our full assessment with you soon!
