New 150 cc TVS scooter spotted testing in India

  •  

Last month, we had posted spy images of a scooter being tested on the outskirts of Bangalore. A video has surfaced on the internet featuring a similar test mule. Reports indicate that this is the new TVS scooter based on the Graphite concept that was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo.

It is difficult to comment on the design of the scooter, since it is wrapped in heavy camouflage. However, few details that are visible include a split rear grab handles, alloy wheels and the shape of the exhaust muffler which is identical to the test mule that was spotted earlier.

The person who shot the video can be seen traveling at 90-100 km/h on his Aprilia SR 150. The video suggests that the speed of the test mule would be at least 100 km/h. This indicates that TVS might be entering the performance scooter segment with this bike. The Graphite concept had features like an electronic key, inbuilt immobilizer and dual channel ABS. It will be interesting to see what features are added on the production version of the bike.

There has been no official word on the upcoming 150 cc scooter from TVS. However, the company might reveal it at the 2018 Auto Expo.
