TVS Scooty Pep + Alternatives
TVS Scooty Pep + Overview
Scooty in India is synonymous with light, low-powered bikes. That means if you are looking for a small, light, cheap bike to run errands, or gift your girl or wife, you are looking in the right direction. It is all that and with the new graphics, a bit more. You would do yourself no great favours if you choose not to look and test drive this one if you are in the market for something like this.There are many variants of Scooty itself. Not to mention options from every other manufacturer, but they all have a bit more weight. You can look at some option from the manufacturers who make electric bikes.
TVS Scooty Pep + Engine & Transmission
The engine is a paltry 88cc and 5 bhp effort. And it features a CVT transmission. Which means it is a twist-and-go scooter. The engine is fairly smooth and the transmission is glitch free. All in all, while the engine and transmission are nothing to write home about in isolation, but together they work smoothly to give you a good ride, especially in the stop and go situation that this scooter will mostly find itself in.
TVS Scooty Pep + Mileage
The Scooty is good for about 45 kms to a litre. Which, given its Spartan fuel tank, gives you a range of about 250 kms. Good enough for city commute.
TVS Scooty Pep + Performance and Handling
The Scooty makes 5 bhp, but with a kerb weight that is less than 100 kgs, it does not seem to be as bad as the figures on the paper suggest. The progress is decent if not brisk. But considering the Scooty will mostly find its use in city, it should do pretty well.Remember though performance will vary quite a lot if two-up riding is done.
