So the Wego should compete with the Activa and the Access?

Default The future of Jive

In the city, a clutchless bike make a lot of sense. But going by the fate of Hero Honda Street, it has to be seen which way the Jive goes.

^I think it is not just clutchless but also gearless, the first AT bike in India, I guess.

Would be interesting to see the market response to it.

Probably this bike will make sense for those who are currently riding At scooters. I am still not able to believe that its 4 speed At. May be its not AT, but its just clutchless i.e. a bike without procedure of manual clutch operation. In any case, it does make sense. 4 speed will ensure good FE.

About scooter, I am not sure if its succeeds or not.
But a move in positive direction. Unlike bajaj that is now detuning the entire Pulsar range.

Good move.

Nice looking Scooter TVS Wego with some innovative features.

1> Body Balance Technology (Really don't know how it works).
2> 12'' Alloy wheels.
3> Led Tail lamps
4> 110cc with 8 Bhp @ 7500 RPM ,with all aluminum low friction engine.
expect a good mileage from this engine.
5> External fuel filling.
6> Under seat mobile charger.
7> Integrated glove box.

Am sure now Honda and Suzuki will have some competition.

I liked the initiative taken by TVS, atleast there is some one in the Indian market which is doing something that is new and innovative even when the international market is facing recession.

The bike will attract those who likes a Activa, other gearless scooters, but want to ride a motorcycle with features of a gearless scooters.

Wont the slightly cheaper Star City make better sense to buy than the Jive ?
It would also probably be more fuel efficient than the Jive.
Even though its a laudable effort, I wonder who would want to go for it ?
The could have revived a segment (left empty by the HH Street), had they launched this as a step-through, because it would slide in neatly between the gearless scooter and motorcycle segment.

I have had my share of fun while at college with my roomies Street which was the bike for short errands. Loved the feel of riding cluthless. During my initial runs on start up I used always grab for an invisible clutch. That time I though many manufactuers would come out with more options. Unfortunatley none came up. Now after a decade they have come.

This will be a boon for city driving.

No clutch but still need to engage gears?
Without clutch what is the importance of a Gear?

Can we call it as gearless Bike, like Mahindra flyte,Tvs scooty,honda active etc?

This bike from TVS is only without clutch and not wothout gears. It does have the regular gears only the trouble of having to press the clutch every time while changing gears is not there. And it is in no way like the scooters which is again not AT but a CVT called a continously variable transmission it does not have any specific gears which shift automatically but its like a continous gear change. I do not think it will effect the fuel efficiency bcoz the rider decides when to shift gears considering many factors other than speed unlike the AT which shifts the gears only based on speeds.

I heard that it is easy to drive in the city. A decent FE too. Getting used to the absence of the clutch lever takes some time though.

Bike can be started in any gear and can be brought down to neutral from any gear.

The other bike or rather step-thru that had rotary clutchless GB was the HH Street.

Imo, this bike will be easy for those who are using gearless scooters like
Honda activa/scooty/mahindra fyte-rado etc. But in this, one still need to
change gears whereas in gearless scooters one can strightaway accelerate.
However in clutch/gear, one has to come from neutral,1st,2nd etc to achieve the correct speed. But in Jive, I think on any gear the bike can be moved also the engine will not go off even if one stop without bringing the
gear into neutral (Rotary gear technology?)!
