You may have already noticed that TVS Scooty Pep (Priced at Rs.33,000 ex-showroom) is the best selling scooter in the girl’s scooter segment. But our review shows that most people are making a mistake by buying this scooter. The only good things are the brand name, advertisement and looks. TVS has launched the new Scooty Pep Wimbledon series.
The bike looks good, but performance is also equally important. Users have reported that buying TVS Scooty Pep is the worst choice they ever made. There have been so many complaints of the scooter performing very poorly during rainy season. The brakes are very poor and makes it very risky for the rider. The engine does not start during rains and sometimes the engine stops after a few seconds of revving up.
People have reported that the mileage of Scooty Pep ranges from 45 – 50 kmpl which is quite low of a engine of less than 100cc. The bike becomes very unstable when the speed crosses 50 kmph.
There are two modes being displayed in the dash board namely power mode and economy mode. But this is
just some fancy feature that TVS has tried to attract users… I do not really see any use behind it, who would be looking at the dash board instead of the road while driving!
As more and more reviews and user’s comments are posted online, I hope that people will become aware of the actual reality of the bikes and make their buying decision with clear analysis of the various models and its pros and cons.
TVS Scooty Pep gives out 5.4 Nm of torque at 4000 rpm and the displacement is 87.8cc. The alternative choices for this bike are Hero Honda Pleasure and Honda Activa. I will post reviews of these bikes soon. Please subscribe to our RSS feed to stay on top of updates.
Last but not the least, TVS has given importance to the looks. Each girl likes a different colour and here’s the 99 colours for the scooter!
