The TVS Motor Company has just launched the BS6 Scooty Zest 110. The BS6 Scooty Zest 110 is powered by a 110cc engine that’s equipped with the same ET-Fi (Ecothrust Fuel injection) technology that we've seen in the BS6-compliant Jupiter Classic. Peak power and torque figures are 7.8hp and 8.8Nm, respectively. For reference, the BS4-spec engine produced marginally more power, at 8hp, and less torque, at 8.4Nm. Both rear and front brakes of TVS Scooty Zest 110 are drum brakes.
The new Scooty Zest 110 is the offering from TVS Motors Company’s scooter stable that caters to women. It is the third model under the Hosur-based brand’s Scooty range, after the Scooty Pep Plus and the Scooty Streak. The new Scooty Zest 110 retains the familiar Scooty look with its steeply raked apron, a big headlamp and vertically stacked turn indicators. TVS has revealed that the new Scooty Zest 110 features tubeless tyres, LED taillight, a back-lit speedometer and a broader dual-textured seat to give good riding comfort. The scooter also gets 19-litres of under-seat storage, which is best in its class. It offers more storage space in the form of an open glove box, retractable bag hooks and under-seat hooks.
Apart from the updated engine, the Zest 110 remains largely unchanged. Equipment like the LED DRL and underseat USB charger have been carried forward from the older model. Components like the chassis, suspension and tyres are identical as well. The new Zest 110 is available in two variants – Himalayan High Series and Matte Series.
The scooter is powered by an 110cc, single-cylinder air-cooled engine that produces 7.9bhp of power at 7,500rpm and a maximum torque of 8.7Nm at 5,500rpm. Ride and handling is taken care of by the telescopic front suspension and hydraulic rear mono shock. No disc brake is available but the brakes are now available with a linked brake system at no extra cost.The Scooty Zest 110 is available in nine colours – that’s way too many to list here. It competes with the Yamaha Ray, Honda Activa-I, Hero Pleasure and the Suzuki Let’s.
