TVS Wego – Exclusive Review

by Kannan on July 2, 2010

TVS isn’t exactly new to the gearless scooter segment, with Scooty and its variants, the Pep, pep+ and the streak all stand testimony to the companies experience in this field, with almost endless waiting periods for the current market leader, the Honda Activa, it was inevitable that TVS would come up with a rival against the Japanese giant.

We take a close look at the machine and wonder if this two – wheeler has what it takes to grab the hearts of prospective scooter buyers. The Wego was first launched along with the Jive back in November 25, 2009, TVS claimed to have spent a whopping 50 crore developing this machine which is designed and marketed to be family friendly unlike the Scooty which was for the Ladies. Priced slightly higher than the competition by about 1000Rs, the Wego has plenty of features worth mentioning along with the good looks.

Looks and Features: The styling is best described in one word ‘Edgy’, it features muscles and curves all around its metal body with sharp looking indicators just like on the Scooty streak  and the white color that seems to have been lifted straight from the RTR 180, its far from the conservative design language of the Activa and the Duro. On closer inspection of the Wego, TVS’s trademark attention to detail in the design can be seen, take for example the air vent below the seat, while most designers would be happy to go ahead and put two holes there, TVS has given the Wego a cool looking transformers-logo-style air vent, complete with a plastic mesh.

The tail lamps, they may seem ordinary but the three inverted-U shaped optical tubes is almost identical to the tubes used on BMW cars to light up their brake lights and corona rings.

The very well done stitching on the rear seat and the design of the rear grab rail both speak volumes about the effort that has been put into the creation of this scooter, even under the seat there were no wires, imperfections or mechanical bits visible, the key too followed the same tradition with a new fob design that makes it look like it was of a car. The 12” inch silver alloy wheels with its unique design also helps to set this bike apart from the crowd.

Overall, the Wego definitely looks more stylish than the Activa but might not go down as a good looking machine with everyone out there, particularly the older crowd; it seems to suit a younger buyer with its energetic lines. Looks aside, on the features front, the bike does have quite a lot to offer, firstly it features an all metal body which is different to the Scooty’s which features a fibre shell, the metal ensures longer life, stability due to the added weight, and durability in the event of bumps and dents, there have also been two patented features on the Wego, one is the EZ Stand, this is a spring operated stand with a long kick lever, its designed and positioned in a way that makes it amazingly easy to put the bike onto the centre stand, on testing it we found that it takes less effort, to place the bike on the main stand, than lifting a bag of rice provided the kick lever was firmly pushed to the ground,another patent has been applied for TVS’s Body Balance Technology, more about this in the Handling section, this technology is a mix of components that enable the rider to have maximum steering ability and maneuverability in traffic or at cruising speeds. The Wego also features 12 inch alloy wheels for both front and back which is fitted with newly designed TVS Tyres. The scooter features twin telescopic front shock absorbers and a gas filled rear spring.

There isn’t any disc brake option for the bike and it features drum units for both front and rear. Another interesting feature is the integrated front storage compartment, this compartment isn’t an add – on accessory that seems to have been bolted into place like on the Activa, it is part of the standard package, the fuel lid is positioned right behind the seat and can be opened by inserting a key on the left rear side of the bike, turning the key to the right opens the fuel lid and the key can be turned to the left to open the seat.

Other features include a hook beside the ignition key slot for hanging bags or groceries weighing less than 3 Kg’s, an optional under seat 12V socket for mobile charging and an illuminated key ring.

Engine Performance and Drivability: The engine on the Wego is an all new, all aluminum unit designed with two key principles in mind, low noise and less friction. On paper, it is a 109cc engine that produces 8.1 Bhp of power. The same basic engine was also featured on the Jive, TVS’s ‘no tension bike’. On the test bike I was given the battery was disconnected since it had just arrived from the factory. So the only option was to kick start it. I put it into the main stand and kept kicking it, on the third kick, the lever went all the way down without any resistance and got me worried for a second, it’s only when I touched the seat that I felt that the engine was on, this wasn’t a noisy place at the centre of town, it was a showroom on the side of a deserted highway at noon, and still the silence of the engine really made an Impression As I got on the highway, accelerating at full throttle, I remember a smile being put on my face by the scooter as I went on with the journey, there was an eerie silence about the engine, it literally felt like the Wego was running on butter instead of petrol, the engine was that smooth and quiet, yet, TVS doesn’t mention this remarkable characteristic in any of the ads of the Wego, the company seems to be following a policy of ‘Promise less, Deliver more’. Riding without a pillion, I felt that the scooter had a decent level of pickup and acceleration; it was really hard to compare it to my friends Honda Activa I rode later that day simply because of the lack of engine noise.

In an Activa, on hard acceleration, the engine purrs audibly and the acceleration can really be felt and due to the lack of the rev counter, the engine noise can help in judging how fast the bike is accelerating in relation to the speed, but on the Wego due to the suppressed sound, all there is, is the feeling of gliding along, slowly getting faster and faster.  Hence, in terms of a real world comparison of the two scooters, the Activa felt slightly faster, this might be due to psychological factors or because of the fact that TVS has tuned its scooter for better mileage than the rest. In the cities too, the engine feels stress free and ready to move at every twist of the throttle, with the ambient noises in city areas, it felt like driving an electric scooter around. Overall, in the engine and performance department, the Wego was impressive, not for its power, but for its amazing refinement, I honestly have yet to come across a bike or a scooter that has an engine that feels so pure and so smooth. With almost zero noise, there’s no doubt that it’s a job well done by TVS.

Ride, Handling and Ergonomics: The initial part of the test session covered deserted highways which had a glass like smoothness to them, needless to say, the bike felt rock solid on these roads, it was without a doubt, nimble and sporty, requiring nothing more than a slight twist of the hip to lean the bike, the bike did have great lean angles but the centre stand was always eager to touch the ground when turning to the left.

At cruising speed, the Wego can take turns like a bee and is quite fun to ride too, but our Indian roads in general are far from glass-smooth so I found a path of bumpy inner roads to give the suspension a good work out.12” wheels are standard at both the front and rear and also, the front end sports dual telescopic arms and the rear houses a single gas filled shock absorber, though the rear suspension took every bump and pothole with smiles, the front suspension was quick to transmit some of the bumps onto the handlebars, it wasn’t the most pleasant experience having my hands shaking like it was on a tractor engine while going through some rough patches. But, the rear felt really comfortable, the seat, though it seems flat, is actually curved well once a rider sits on it and is also soft, this added to the ride quality of the scooter and made up for the hard front end.  To be honest, with the 12” wheels, I had expected a little more. But things started to get into the right perspective once I started using the brakes really well, the Wego, on hard braking, felt just like a two wheeler should feel, planted and secure.

The front end dives in well and gives a great amount of feedback about the level of grip on the tires; this was more bike – like and did not feel awkward even when the front brakes were tried on a patch of mud. It feels predictable and safe on braking despite the use of drum brakes. The 12” wheels also added to the feedback of the whole setup. Rubber quality, to say the least was good and it definitely felt a lot better than the ones used on the Scooty but not quite up to Activa standards. Speaking of the Wego’s braking in comparison to the current market leader, Activa, its almost entirely different, the Activa features a bottom link, spring loaded hydraulic damper at the front, on the road this meant that the front of the bike actually rises up on applying the brakes, which can feel odd and also unpredictableon muddy roads, this issue is non-existent on the Wego since it uses the bike-like telescopic Suspension System. In the city though, TVS’s ‘body balance tech’ made its presence felt, with the least amount of effort required to flick the bike in and out of traffic, and roads. this technology, in my opinion consists of the 12″ wheels, telescopic suspension in front, the comparatively higher ground clearance and a well implemented front – rear weight distribution. The good brakes on the scooter also lent a bit of confidence for taking it around at above average speeds. Overall, in the handling department, the bike felt refreshing; it was sporty, nimble, predictable and confidence inspiring, at the cost of being slightly bumpy on bad roads. Not bad at all.

The Verdict: The Wego is definitely an impressive machine; it’s got some really appealing looks especially in that White color, sporty handling, good ride comfort, lots of storage space, mileage, and best of all, refinement. This scooter, without a doubt goes into my books as the quietest two wheeler I have ever ridden.  Looking at the scooter segment from a business point of view, the Activa led the market due to its very conservative and simple looks which appealed to everyone from youngsters to adults, the Wego, though has a more energetic styling, one that the younger buyers would love and the older customers may loathe. On the whole it’s a welcome addition to the 110cc scooter segment. With the level of refinement and class that TVS has managed to cram into this little scooter, we wouldn’t be surprised if the Wego took a big bite into the pie, the Activa had all to itself.

Wego is good, but a large number of population is attracted towards the brand “Honda”. Although Wego scores over the activa, it hasnt been popular as it is a new entrance in the market. TVS aims @ Wego to increase their overall sales figure.

When people ask me about scooters, I always used to say “Activa”. I own one and it is good, but now I started suggesting Activa, Rodeo and Wego. I leave up to them. After saying Wego, people fire a lot of questions about it. Most of them dont know that TVS has a bike called “Wego”. Primarily Wego should be marketed well to become a popular bike like “Scooty”.

Hi,

Certainly Activa is the top most in its segment, in which wego is making its name… But I wouldn’t suggest Rodeo… With everything mixed up that too at such a low cost, i am bit skeptical on Rodeo…

For the same reason, i have booked TVS Wego and waiting for its delivery… :)

what about fuel efficiency figures in city and highway?also acceleration figure like 0-60 would have been great to actually copare with activa.

Thank you for the clear and complete review.
TVS is always a leading co,. which attracts many indian riders in concept of mileage and low cost maintenance.
But Gearless bikes are not capable of providing more mileage, but it is easy to ride and great vehicle for women and soft riders.
TVS Zive clutch less bikes also comes under low mileage category, but it is great out come from TVS for riders who struggle to clutch on gears.

IT IS GOOD NEWS FRM TVS MOTORS , AFTER SCOOTY PEP THERE WERE NO SCOOTERETS MADE BY TVS MOTORS, WHEN COMPANYS LIKE HONDA AND SUZUKI
CAN SELL THEIR VEHICLE IN INDIAN MARKET WITH ONE MONTH TO THREE MONTHS
BOOKING TIME AND MORE OVER HONDA DEALERS LIKE PLANET HONDA DO NOT CARE
ABOUT CUSTOMERS ENQUIRY I DONT THINK THERE IS ANY PROBKEM FOR TVS MOTORS
TO SELL THEIR NEW VEHICLE WE INDIANS SHOULD FIRST THINK ABOUT
BUYING AN INDIAN PRODUCT SO THAT WE OURSELVES CREATE MARKET FOR OUR OWN
BRANDS AND INDIAN COMPANYS.
.
BEST OF LUCK TVS MOTORS.

This is the bad thing about TVS. I heard news about Wego in November and was expecting that atleast from Jan2010 it would be in Market. TVS seems to be lack this thing, In Pune Wego was launch in March, but there were no advertisements till May. I think TVS should think about its strategy
Its strange Wego still not in Chennai, I guess Chennai is the parent city of TVS so they should have launched it there earlier than rest of India

Hi..I purchased TVS WEGO on the 1st of June and i find the vehicle worth for the money spent…TVS also offers 7 free services which other companies are not providing.I have done about 500 kms and i feel after a couple of services it should fetch a mileage of 50-55km/lit..currently i am getting 46 without any service.One disappointing thing is the Front telescopic suspension which is not able to give a good ride in bumpy roads and you can feel it in the handlebar..i hope this will be rectified during my first service.I rate this bike 9/10..WORTH BUYING COMPARED TO ACTIVA for which one has to wait for 3 months and TVS WEGO was delivered in 1 DAY..GOOD JOB TVS.

Hi All,
I am just confused between Activa and Wego.
I appreciate the author’s review. It’s simply superb. Good job!!
I was rreally pissed off when Honda dealers told me that it takes min2-3 months to deliver the vehicle from the date of booking!!!
I calld up TVS guys and found that certain colours of wego are readily available.If I choose for others they would give it to me in a week’s time.
In Bengaluru on road price of wego is around 50,600 rupees.
For people going on installment it is 24,593 downpayment and 3209(x10 months) remaining installments. totally 56,683. Around 6k more if taken using installment.
One thing I liked about the dealer I called is that they were ready to talk!!
Honda dealers were just talking to point and when any more question was asked they just cut the call.!!
Abnyways comin back to point, Its sick waiting for 2 or 3 months when there is a need for a vehicle NOW.
But Activa is an awesome vehicle too. It has stood the test of time. I wish Indian companies like TVS and Mahindra come up and occupy this segment of vehicles. @all If anyone has bought WEGO pls post ur opinions.

@Sunil

I have already put my comments for Wego, now I have completed more than 1000 kms, in Pune. I have also used it in very heavy rains.

I had taken test drive of Activa, Access, Duro, Rodeo and Wego and finally decided to go for Wego

chalapathi rao August 19, 2010 at 7:02 am

Thanks for the fair and open review.

I bought Wego a week back for my daughter. Initially, she had settled for pep+ or activa as an option.

After I checked the technical specifications, I suggested her to have a look at the wego and activa.

She narrowed her choise to wego and was very impressed with the quality and handling.

Activa, feed back from my friend who bought it after anxious wait of 3 months, says he is unable to get mileage of more than 40kms even after 4th service. (He clocked 5k on his odometer)

While taking the delivery of the vehicle, i took a feed back from a owner whose vehicle was at workshop for 3rd service said he was quite happy and the mileage was around 55km in city.

I felt it was a wise choice to have gone in for WEGO.

Probably, as the adage says, “BE INDIAN BUY INDIAN”. this is a truly indian vehicle designed to our conditions and tastes.(and of course our bad roads)

Hi,

I have recently bought a black TVS Wego for my daily use. Before buying the bike I was quite confused about the performance. Because it is very newly launched bike. Anyway, after using two months I would like to say that It’s amazing machine. It’s lighter than honda products, best style in his category and very smooth and silent. It’s definitely a very good product from TVS and I would like to congratulate them. But two thing are really bad -

1. Every morning I need to choke for auto start. The auto start feature should be rechecked by TVS.

2. Front telescopic suspension is not up to the mark. It’s really not works good in bad road condition.

Reply

Renganathan March 26, 2011 at 2:38 pm

I have driven 600 kms from jan 20th For me there was no necessity to pull the choke for even a single occation.I am a satisfied owner.I suggest this vehicle for one and all ladys and gents of all age.milege fairly 45kms since I drive short distance only.

Aj August 22, 2010 at 10:01 am

@ All those who are facing starting issue

I would advice you to kick start the vehicle in the morning and do not start riding your vehicle it till nearly 30 secs

I have done more than 1200kms on my wego, I am getting an average of around 50-55 in pune which is good as in pune very rarely you can drive above 40-45kms during day time. I use Speed petrol and in case speed is not available I add Petrol Additive (System G).

Thanks AJ for your suggestion. But my question is, why shall I start this bike by kicking every morning? It has got the self start feature. Then what is the necessity of self start? I have spent more than 50K and why don’t I expect fool proof tested bike from TVS?

Reply

chalapathi rao August 22, 2010 at 8:05 pm

Hi Mr. Ghosh,

You dont have to kick start, but a few kicks prior to self start would ease the starting mainly when you start for the first time.

Just try it out.

As you mentioned, I too observed the front suspension is not upto the mark. It needs to be looked into by TVS.

Hi..I purchased TVS WEGO 4 moths back

The good things are
Good stylish body
Bright light
Easy balancing
Easy refiling of fuel

Bad things are

Front telescopic suspension which is not able to give a good ride in bumpy roads and you can feel it in the handlebar.Even after second service it is not rectified.
Brake, I have to adjust every month. A sound comes while applying break, if there is rain or if I wash the scooter.
Inner cover broke after 3 moths. Even though they promised to replace the cover till now its not replaced.
Slow speed increases after riding for some 8 to 15 kms.
milage not yet checked

hi TVS Wego is an excellent Bike (I don’t call it as scooter). I bought this bike from Priyanka TVS, Panvel. The look is terriffic and excellent. A real value for money (rather than waiting for months together to get Active – the fiber body vehicle). Wego’s body is full metalic and its alloys wells give better look. So guys go only for Wego which is best in class.

My bike is almost a month now and but only issue is that it gives poor mileage. For a full tank (5 litre) it gives only 70 km. When enquired, they have suggested that after first services, the mileage will be much much better. Can anyone throw some light on this?

hi,
I am tushar from panvel. I am planning to buy a WEGO from Priyanka TVS panvel. My question to you is “What about the servicing quality/ feedback from Priyanka TVS”. because i know in panvel Honda and Hero Honda service center are BAD for handling the customers and their BIKES.

Thanks and Regards
Tushar

your driving practice of a particular type of vehicle reflects on the fuel consumption.Don’t be panic No vehicle will consume so much fuel as you mentioned.If the consumption is so heavy you can see heavy smoke in the exhaust. Definetly wait for further services and if you need take the help of the mechanic to see your driving practice.

Millege it shows 44, which i was expecting more. But an excellent gift from TVS TO INDIANS. AFTER ALL ITS OURS. For more details, call 09538216627

I don’t understand why Wego has not yet been launched in Chennai, is TVS so worried about its presence in rest of India?….even after a year the vehicle has not been launched here…I think they don’t have any launch plans for wego in Chennai..even the dealers are unhappy about it….wakeup TVS..live upto your reputation and fulfill the expectations of the people of this city…

Hi Everyone,

Thanks to all of you for such a detailed and good review/comparisons for WEGO.
Yes even I too feel that it’s pretty better than Honda Activa and Suzuki Access as they are having more than 3 months waiting time.
I have been looking for a gear-less scooter and now decided to go for WEGO.
I will be posting my experience very soon.

Some more review about Wego from India Bike, the Test was conducted by Dilip Bam
http://www.indiabike.com/infobank/wego_dilip/index.htm

@All : I had taken Wego to Kanifnath Temple (situated on a hilltop near pune) the road for almost 15-20kms is very bad. I had taken a pillion rider with me.
The Wego did not face any problem in handling and braking and we could reach the hilltop very easily.

Arup February 15, 2011 at 2:29 pm

The clearance between seat front and the apron is very much less than Access and Activa.
This space is very important for passing right leg over groceries bag to the other side.
Only due to this issue, I left up buying Wego and booked Access 125.

chalapathi rao February 21, 2011 at 12:21 pm

Mr. Maharana,

Do not worry about the mileage immediately. You need to wait till the vehicle run in period is completed. 500kms or 1000kms where in the engine sets.

Wego which my daughter drives clocked 900 kms and the mileage started improving.

as far as the service response is concerned, complain to the TVS directly about the BAD response. They(Company) WILL personally get in touch with you.

HAPPY RIDING

Dear All Wego Owners,
I would like to know about your experiences with the fuel meter of wego. Recently I filled 2.5 litres of petrol after the red mark but after filling (Now it’s 4 litre of petrol in the tank = 1.5 + 2.5 ) the reading shows more than F mark. When I confirmed with the show room technician he asked me to bring the vehicle. After lot of testing and replacing the fuel metre the same problem persists. After a lot of arguements they said it’s not a issue. When you have 5 litres capacity of petrol tank, after filling 4 litres if it show more than F mark, please confirm me if this kind of problem happened to you.

Lava April 2, 2011 at 11:50 am

Fill the tank to fullest….the fuel meter will go above the F Mark, that is the real ‘full’ mark. Turn off the key the indicator goes way below the E mark, that is the real Empty mark. normally i fill petrol when it reaches E mark, it takes only 3.5 ltrs, which means there is another 1.5 lts(i hope there is) left in the tank even though it is showing empty there….anyone else had the same issue..??

I am absolutely unsatisfied with the vehicle in terms of basic performance (Starting problem). Since the day I have bought this vehicle, I have faced numerous problems.
1.) Start-up issues,
2.) Bike stopping after running for 1 kilometer or even less, etc.
I have reported this problem twice in last 8 days to the dealer. I have been given back the vehicle after saying there is some minor problem or so (Check / Change the RPM settings). But the day I take the bike out again the same problems persist.

After Spending Rs. 54800/- for purchasing, I am really frustrated in 8 Days and want this issue resolved as soon as possible or else give my hard earn money back.

I was gonna go in for a Wego, but I’ve been hearing that it costs quite a bit in the Fuel Economy Department. And what I hear about the front telescopic Shocks really worries me. Would we be able to rectify that problem?
As for the fuel efficiency, mileage tuning only increases about 5-6 kms per litre. So it’s advisable that the base efficiency be good. It’s here that the Honda Activa scores. Providing a walloping efficiency over 50kmpl once tuned for efficiency, it sets a high standard for others.
The Wego showcases excellent looks and features which the Activa lacks. The Wego IS gonna be a huge rival to the Activa, that’s sure.
It’s a pity that the TVS Motors don’t give as many body colors as Honda does.
But TVS has introduced a mighty weapon into it’s arsenal. TVS would better pump up it’s marketing campaign for thissuperb addition.

Watch out, Activa!
Cheers,
Tony

Even I’m also facing the same Issue.

Some where I read it as 4.5 .. somewhere as 5.0

So here Question is What is the Exact Capacity of Fuel Tank ..!!!

Pravakar Maharana March 31, 2011 at 9:41 pm

They say 5 litres of Capacity. And also TVS WEGO’s manual say 5 litres of capacity.

Renganathan April 2, 2011 at 11:52 am

actually it holds only 4.5 litres.

Renganathan April 2, 2011 at 11:56 am

The petrol metre works on the basis of galvano meter and it may not be accurate as per my 8 years of experience with other vehicles .Most times it will be near accurate but it willdecive in case you are in need.That is my personal experience.

Pravakar Maharana April 5, 2011 at 10:29 pm

It is confusing. How about the digital meter

Tony Philip April 8, 2011 at 12:29 pm

Mr. Pravaker,
this is a common glitch in all scooters. It’s due to the structure of the Fuel Tank. It’s Gravity assisted or pump assisted. Hence, when on inclined surfaces,
(i) when u r going DOWN a slope, the fuel rushes toward frontal areas, resulting in the Fuel gauge showing a higher reading than the original volume.
(ii) when u r going up a slope, the fuel flows backward, resulting in a lesser reading on the Fuel Gauge.
The original volume of fuel in the tank can be determined only when its propped up on the Centre- stand, on a straight plane surface, for atleast a minute… :D

Hope this will help,
Tony

Steve,
Both are competing each other closely. However, Access is a better buy as you are getting 25% higher capacity of engine at same price. If you are using in a up/down roads, then Access is easy to maneuver. Mileage is almost same for both nearto 40-42 Km.
Wego is liitle new whereas Access is proven for a long time.

I surely agree for the comments of everyone.
Thats how I purchased wego in month of FEB 2011. But my vehicle is in the service centre from past 2 weeks for no fault of mine. The oil is dripping continuously from the engine. I took to the notice of the service centre where I bought it, they confirmed that it is manufacturing defect but they are still in the verge of getting it repaired nor giving me an new vehicle in exchange. just think, paying 56,000Rs. and getting repair within a month is the worst experience of mine with wego.

I too agree that Wego is the best scooter from TVS. this is my first 2 wheeler and i am happy that i made a right decision. I feel the ride is very smooth and very comfortable.
Only thing is worrying is when the Engine is cold you need to start it by kick start and pull out the choke. I hope if TVS can do something about it.
Like others said the front wheel shock absorbers needs to be bit modified to reduce the load on steering.

TVS WEGO Review:
Recently I have bought a new TVS WEGO and finished 1st service and used over 1800 kms.Now I would like to share my experience.

Riding comfort:
Always Wego is ready to start with Electric as well as Effortless Kick starter.
Adequate pickup even with pillion rider on.
New Body Balance Technology assures everyone a safe ride.
Able to take sharp turns;Manoeuvres with ease in Chennai traffic.
Ensures very smooth ride and no vibration even at high speed .
Broad tyres & large alloy wheel base give nice road grip.
Stands straight and firm when you apply sudden breaks and no wobbling at all.
Gas filled rear suspension and proper seating position(Broad Seat and enough room for legs) provide the Pillion rider, the best comfort.
Effective front telescopic suspension gives the rider some extra comfort(If you are not comfortable, plz Check & adjust the steering).

Salient Features:
Good mileage for its category(Giving around 44 – 47 kms/Ltr in Chennai).
Even girls can park the vehicle on the Centre Stand effortlessly(New Pattern).
Bright halogen bulb headlight provided.(If you don’t get this effect,then adjust the focus).
Very low Engine/Silencer noise.
Aluminium body adds strength and durablity for long life.
Elegant LED tail lamp,Indicators and twin city lamps are of good type.

Major Defects:
No pass light is available to give signal and proceed first in the busy roads.
No Indicator is provided in the speedometer to know the battery’s On/Off position.
As per company’s advice you should not take this vehicle to very long trip(Trip meter is must for this purpose.But, it is not available here).
Instead of keeping the two small size helmet hooks(Absolutely Useless) under the seat assembly, they could have been kept outside with lock&key.

Minor Defects:
Very light and small size bag hook in the front side has to be upgraded.
It is better to have a big size side hook for ladies to hold firmly.
Rearside Petrol tank is gimmick and accessible only by the left hand users who may be able to open it without Getting Down from the vehicle.
Glowing Ring around the Ignition keyhole is another gimmick and not effective.
The optional mobile charger located inside the utility box is prone to engine heat that may damage your valuable mobile phones.

In Due Course:
Maintenance Free dry battery is good.But,it’s performance and life is left to seen after few months usage.As per the Catalogue, this MF battery may require

some periodical voltage checking/recharging from the TVS Service Centre.
No choke is required so far.But,I didn’t get the opportunity to start this vehicle in the Monsoon and Winter Season.Then only we will come to know about the

starting problems, if any.

Conclusion:
The cost of WEGO is on par with Suzuki Access 125CC.The price of Wego should be reduced, Because Suzuki is having higher engine power,pickup&speed than WEGO.
Males who prefer high speed, pickup and very long trip can opt either Suzuki Access or Honda Activa.
After considering all the pros and cons of this vehicle, I am of the opinion that WEGO is better than the other brand scooters available for unisex.
If TVS authorities overcome with the defects and reduce the price, then TVS WEGO can surely claim itself as the best and dominate the scooter field in the near future.

I wanted a ‘city run about’ scooter. A bike of out of the question (Need both my hands and both my legs to drive a bike – I am too lazy for that) So, I test drove both WeGo and Streak today (Meghdoot Motors, Trinity Circle Bangalore). [Honda Dio / Activa have 90/60 day waiting periods]. The Salesperson was kind enough to let me drive both for 4 kms each, *Twice*. Though WeGo has better pickup and ride quality, the ‘leg space’ is too less. (in both versions – with & without the ‘glove box’). This makes one sit “upright” with arms twisted @ elbow. I can extend my legs out in Streak/Scooty Pep+ – After a few kms, this really makes a difference. Even with the salesperson riding pillion on both occasions, I could not find any big difference between both (8BHP 110 CC engine vs 5.8BHP,, 90CC) . In real traffic conditions, WeGo and Streak felt almost same. Or shall I say, the difference was sure present, technically, but not worth the 11,000 Rs price difference (46K INR vs 57K INR, including accessories).

Hi all,

Jess like most of u activa has alwaz been my 1st choice in gearless bikes, coz it luks better has decent mileage n any1 can use it n look cool, be it gals or guys or uncles……bt now whn I went for booking a new activa same story got repeated n waiting thin came in to picture. 1 of my frnds suggested Wego, I went to showroom saw the bike there bt did nt like it, though was impressed with all the features, best was the petrol tank n middle stand(very easy) bt thn aftr getting it, the real fun started, drive was smooth, no worries about potholes n speed breakers, engine is smooth, though it makes a bit more noise than activa once u accelerate, bt it has better balance. It also provides parking lights(I guess 1st time in such bikes) thn u have radium paint near ignition(helps whn the bike is in parking whr light is dim n also at night time), seats r comfortable both for rider n pillion rider……..n 1 more funny thing is tht while filling petrol, u can hand the keys to the petrol guy n ask him to open it jess like it happens in cars, so no need to get down :D

Can you tell me exact mileage of wego.

Reply

Ak July 27, 2011 at 6:48 pm

It has almost been 3 week I am driving it. I am feeling vast differences between both the bykes(Activa and wego). I will mention it point wise, so it will be easy to understand. I am not that much technical in mechanical terms, so as a terms novice I will write my views and experiences.

1. Shock absorption
The best thing I would say, TVS has come up with. It is totally different from that of activa. When you drive, you will feel like you are driving a byke like pulsar or apache Rtr. As per my work location, I have to travel almost 25*2 Kms daily. When I used to drive activa, I would feel pain in my whole body, but now its totally different. I don’t feel pain and it’s very smooth ride.

2. Pickup
Pick up is almost same as activa. The only thing I noticed while reading or interrogating on internet was activa picks up 60kmph in 6 secs where as, wego does the same in 4 secs. Well, it looks fulfilling this promise when you are driving alone. Since, I am in a short drive mode of the byke, I don’t put it more than 50. Once I went till 60, that too for a few seconds. :D

3. Looks
Depends on person’s perspective, but, I liked the look of wego very much where as I felt activa was having a bulky look at the back. It looks more like a byke.

4. Handling
Since, the wego is having less weight than activa, handling is much better on roads but, I feel, it goes opposite when you have a pillion rider behind you. It’s better in activa. Actually, I feel it will depend on the total weight you are applying on the vehicle and how is it distributed. Me (driving) (70Kgs) and my friend with his laptop bag (75(don’t mind dude ;)) +10) needs more effort when you stop suddenly in traffic. while single riding, during the sharp turns or some pot hole turns, its very effective, I still remember, I was not able to escape the pot holes when I was riding activa, but its totally different in the case of wego. A small brake and you are done!!

5. Foot rest
Ladies foot rest is at right place. The other two foot rests are also at right place, but it touches my feet in the slow traffic when i have to put my legs down, in case i have a pillion rider. May be his shoes are longer ;) I Feel, was the same situation in activa. not very sure, doesn’t matters for me..!!

6. Space
In name of space, activa had little bit more space in its middle dickey. It did not had the extra dickey below the handle, as it used to come as extra accessory. So, this extra dickey is quite useful for keeping some documents or some half litre bottles etc. I had read, the full face helmet doesn’t comes in wego dickey so, i bought a smaller one. in the showroom, i had tried to fit a half face helmet and it was fitting well there, so i guess, it doesn’t makes any difference.

7. Brakes
Brakes are quite responsive and impressive in wego. Activa used to skid during sudden brakes in a speed of 50 to 60. but your wego will give you a nice clutch on the road. brake any time and due to the nice shock absorbers, your front will pulp down giving you a relaxed sensation. :) don’t mind my words.. !! :D

8. Head lamps
Head lamps are similar to activa. Quite good but. There is an extra lamp given in the front. Couldnot understand what is that for. They say its centre light. Have to read manual to understand this. Will update you people soon. I got buzzer as inbuilt accessory, while it was extra accessory in activa.

9. Horn
Little bit less powerful than activa but its good for the city. doesn’t matters.

10. Power
Power of the byke has not been tested yet because, I have not taken it to long tours like nandi hills or some hilly areas where I can really test its power and survival. I remember, I took my activa to nandi hills and it had shown a good response. Since, the specification says, wego is having almost same power to activa, I have to really test it after my first servicing. Will update you soon on this also.

Customer Services Manager,

Sub: – Disappointed from Your Services for TVS Wego product.

Dear,
Customer Service Manager,

I would like to express great regret on a bad service provided at Bikaner Showroom for your TVS product.

Sir, on 03rd July, 2011, I bought a scooty TVS Wego from your Bikaner showroom. I am totally disappointed from the services you provided after purchasing the product. It was not even one percent what you told me at the time of purchase.

Sir, I given my TVS WEGO SCOOTY for its first Service on 01st of August, 2011 at 11AM at your Bikaner Showroom and your service incharge told me to take back the same at 5 PM. When I called your service incharge at 5 pm he told me that the scooty was ready but what I saw that they even not washes my scooty with water. Just change oil and give me the key; also took charges of Rs 255 from me and when I asked for bill then your staff told me that there is no bill for changing oil. When I told them to wash the product and make a screw tight on safety guard then your staff shouted upon me and denied for doing all that and told me that in first service they only change oil and nothing more than that. When I told them that I complained for your services and also your behavior then your staff told me that it does not matters for them.

Sir I myself stand there at your service center after 5PM and instruct your staff to service my scooty properly. I instruct for each and every work to your staff and after washing my scooty your staff denied polishing and lubricating it. Sir, I wasted my 2 Hours at your showroom with your staff for servicing my scooty. Even then your staff not did it properly and refused to lubricate it.

Is this Your Services Sir? In which customer instruct your staff that how to do service and waste his 2-3 hours at your showroom for servicing the product or for the mistake he did to buy your product.

What is that entire sir, you make people fool around with your soft and sweet spoken at the time of purchasing? At purchasing time you give assurance for taking care of long term services and when someone purchase your product, you and your staff don’t take any responsibility.

Sir please does needful action so that anybody can not face the same problem again. Even I not face the same again in rest services.

I look forward to hearing from you a satisfactory response and to a resolution of this problem. Please contact me at the below mentioned mobile number or e-mail.

Please look into this matter earliest.

Hi! I am planning to buy WEGO for my would-be who is college gg girl (height roughly 150cm) & imprtly don’t know how to ride?; my friends r telling, wego will be tough to handle for her considering weight & for the dimensions,lengthy/wide so suggtg. me to go for smthg like pepp+ or streak or Mahindra kine, is it weight is an important factor? & while our selection is gearless scooters, even freshers like her , model won’t be an problem whether it is WEGO/ACTIVA/PEPP+ is’n it? looking for your favourable suggestions. Thanx

Hi All,

I am planning to buy a Scooter for my Wife. I checked up in Showrooms in Kolhapur the Honda wait period is 8-9 months if booked with only Rs.1000/- and if booked with ful amount then it is 3 months at least.
Suzuki Access – The wait period is 6-7 months. Also I did not like the way the silencer is placed in Access , I feel it looks ODD with crome plating on top of it.
TVS WEGO – It is readily avaialable in 2 colors and can be made avaialabel in next 7-8 days for rest 2 colors if booked with Rs.1000/- as they were expecting the next lot of delivery soon.
The behaviour of TVS showroom employee was excellent even after I went there at 6.30pm which is kind of closing time for the staff,where as Suzuki and Honda staff was careless about who is wandering in their showroom and looking for Scooter. They were busy in handling only Bike customers . Especially Honda staff was only looking after CBR customer queries and just ignoring Activa customers.

Then I checked up in Pune
Honda showroom- Nobody was atteding the customers for Scooter , after I checked up with receptionist , she called up one person who seemed to be some senior and told us that the wait period is 4-5 months if booked . When I told one reference which happens to be so close to one of the owners then he told me that he will try to deliver the vehicle in 1 month if I book it immediatly.

TVS showroom , I called 2 Pune showrooms today . One told me that the vehicle is not avaialable and booking also is closed and he can not say when it will open.
Second at Century TVS , i spoke to one sales rep Lady , she told me that 1 color is not avaialble and rest 3 are avlbl. If I want it around month end , she told me I can just pay Rs.1000-Rs.2000 and book it even though it is avlbl she can keep the vehicle aside. Also the staff was very courteous and humble compared to other showroom where the guy was rude and rough.

I have now decided to go for White WEGO and not wait for Activa as I am buying for a need and not for fun.

I am the owner of TVS wego and i have used this scooter more than 1 year. My review on the bike is as follows. I have serviced the scooter as per the maintenance report of TVS.
- The performance of the bike – 3/5 while driving you don’t feel much comfortable as compare to Honda Activa. The engine noise very high on speed above 40Km on the same speed on activa very less. Handling on curves and rough roads is good.
– During the period of 1 year the scooter has many problems such as – Battery drain its been replaced by company as it was in warranty period.
The CDI also replaced as scooter use to stop in running, this is was also in warranty period so free of cost.
The Headlights works intermittently some wiring problem in the electrical instruments.
- The front suspension is very bad on indian roads and they are not able to sustain the sudden jurk on the indian roads.
Overall the bike is good not so great and it cant beat the Activa.
The only problem with Activa is waiting period else excellent scooter in its class.

Please go for Activa.

Hello friends,
I own a TVS Wego.It is an excellent scooter in terms of handling and controlling.It is giving a mileage of 52KMPL in economy driving ,maintaining in 40 KMPH speed.The external fuel lid is also a convenience and park light,indicator light is also trendy,the whole scooter is a trendy design,except the back light which seems odd.White color rocks.

Disadvantage
Trust me it causes back pain to the rider,which is a severe disadvantage and i am having it :( .Being the scooter light weight,while driving along without a pillion rider,it seems to be getting out of control at higher speed.The suspension is not good.

Go for honda scooters,good ride quality and will get a good re-sale value.I have after riding wego, drove honda activa,the engine sounds good,good ride quality,good on your back yes it is little heavy than wego and poor on balance that wego gives.But health is important

mileage is not my concern.another deciding factor will be after sales
service.

Reply

Nayar July 9, 2012 at 6:15 pm

TVS Soory pepplus and scooty streak are worst service .Those who wants good stylish and good in mileage scooters you can buy Suzuki Access or swiss and Honda Activa deluxe and Honda Dio are good in mileage .Even my friends are also riding their activa and dio are giving mileage 45 and 50 on High way both scooters are very good. And servicing also good and it is value for money. Dio is available in more colours and activa also.

Reply

Shreya July 9, 2012 at 6:24 pm

Ak Honda Activa deluxe is very smooth riding good comfort to ride and it never gets backpain and ShockAbsorb is very good . Even i am using activa for me no problem for me still now it good vehicle for me.Everything is good in that .

I already deposited for wego but my choice colour is not available. i want to know from previous owners the performance as I can still change my preference. I am also skeptical about the mileage as there is no unified comment about it.

Has lot of problem associated with cold start, both service guys and manufacturer has no clue what could have been issue, possibly due to
1. Suspected weak battery
2. Carburetor blocks due to wrong design
3. Poor electrical wiring
4. Air filter blocks
etc….
