TVS Motor Company has launched Himalayan edition of its 110cc scooter Zest at Rs 46,113 (ex-showroom, Delhi). This latest edition was introduced to celebrate Zest ride to Khardung La Pass by Anam Hashim. With this, this Scooty made its way to the India Book of Records for becoming the first 110 cc Scooter to reach Khardung La in the Himalayas. This special edition comes equipped with features such as High Brown colour with beige pigmented panels, new tapeset, body colour mirrors and cover switch panels. The special edition also features a special emblem honouring the feat of reaching the highest motorable road in the world at 18,380 feet.

Commenting on the special edition launch, Mr. Aniruddha Haldar, VP Marketing, TVS Motor Company, said, “The Scooty has been an iconic brand for mobility in India. It’s only fitting that the first 110 cc scooter to reach the highest motorable road is a Scooty Zest 110, and it was ridden there by Anam Hashim, a 21-year-old Scooty Zest owner. We are happy that this feat has found a place in the India Book of Records. To commemorate this historic ride, we are happy to launch the Himalayan Highs special edition. We continue to enhance the ride experience for the new age Indian woman.”

Anam Hashim began her ride on the Scooty Zest 110 in Jammu and rode across Srinagar, Kargil, Zoji La Pass, Leh to the oxygen depleted highs of Khardung La over a period of 20 days.

Commenting on her memorable, record-breaking ride, Anam Hashim said, “Riding is my passion, I have always enjoyed trying new challenges. I was thrilled to ride TVS Scooty Zest 110 to Khardung La. The engine did not run out of breath, even beyond 10,000 feet and the ride quality was top-notch throughout the long hours of riding. Despite all the dangerous turns, awful weather and vertigo-inducing heights, TVS Scooty Zest 110 cc proved to be a super-reliable and dependable partner. Setting this record is truly an epic feeling.
