TVS motors have launched the much expected bigger gear-less scooter Wego and a clutch-less bike named Jive yesterday. A quick glimpse of both, Speaking about Wego, the engine is a 110c.c four stroke air cooled that churns out 8bhp at 7500 rpm with a torque value of 8Nm at 5500 rpm. TVS also has addressed as Wego will be a fully furnished scooter that will be loved by all families that loves to commute in a scooter.
TVS also has equipped this vehicle with body balancing technology that enables lower stress and gives an easy steer around the traffic which again provides better control and maneuverability eliminating weight distribution hassles. TVS Wego also comes with a whole new features that attracts everyone which includes twelve inch alloys, LED tail lamps with optical guides for optimum visibility, external fuel filler, integrated glove box, sealed maintenance free battery, gas charged rear shock absorbers, under seat charger to charge the battery as well as mobile phone and much more. TVS Wego is priced at Rs.42,500 (Ex-showroom Chennai).
Talking about the new Jive, one important and an attractive highlight is that the bike is equipped with an automatic clutch which when remembered is the next bike to Hero Honda Street. The Jive has a 110 cc four stroke heart that produces 8.4bhp at 7500rpm with a torque value of 8.3Nm at 5500rpm. TVS Jive comes with a T-matic clutch that lets the rider change gears without having to use the clutch manually this also means there will be no clutch lever present. The gearbox is sourced from its Indonesian plant whereas the engine is made at their home plant in Hosur. The Jive at a mere 110 kg weight can maneuver traffic effortlessly with an added advantage of the new automatic clutch.
The Jive is also equipped with anti stall mechanism that makes riding smooth even in the lower gears without the engine shutting off which is again impossible with the motorcycles that are equipped with a manual clutch. The bike is also equipped with an electric starter and the bike can be started irrespective of whatever gear it is parked in. Jive is also the first motorcycle in India that comes with an under seat storage space that can fairly hold some necessities. TVS Jive is priced at Rs. 41,000 (ex-showroom Chennai).
I seriously hope, both the Wego and Jive will be some serious fun in our future reviews that will be done soon.
