Indian bike maker TVS has a product for all kinds of consumers. Yes, that even counts the ladies. Their latest offering to the female market is called the TVS Scooty Teenz, an electric scooter that’s fixing to get some lady love in the Indian market.
In an effort to attract the market, TVS went with a style over substance approach, opting to dress up the Scotty Teenz in a number of color options and aesthetic refinements, including new body panels, rear view mirrors, grab rails, and plenty of other comfort features. The e-scooter also has puncture resistance tires and an auto choke system that allows the bike to start effortlessly in less than ideal weather conditions.
More than just the design details, the Scooty Teenz is also a scooter that performs pretty well relative to its market. The bike’s class-leading suspension system and the twin telescopic forks in the front side increases the already comfortable ride. There’s also a single shocker that has been added at the rear side so as to gain better rigidity of chassis and riding comfort.
With power not being all that of a necessity, TVS went with an approach that highlights looks and comfortable riding for the Scooty Teenz, two qualities that women hold in high order in their list of scooter requirements.

Riding scooters isn’t just a "boy thing," the fairer gender has as much right to enjoy scooters as the men do. That’s why TVS has no problem building scooters exclusively targeted to the female demographic, starting with the Scooty Pep+.
When style meets chic taste, the TVS Scooty Pep+ is born. It’s not going to promote powerful performance because doing so would be misguided. But where it lacks in unbridled power, it more than makes up for in usefulness.
Quite simply, the TVS Scooty Pep+ combines an impressive looking scooter with enough performance credentials to make it worth your money.
The lightweight body makes it easily maneuverable while a hydraulic shock absorber ensures a smooth ride on a lot of road surfaces. Combine that with a contoured seating with high-density MDI polyurethane foam and you have a scooter that’s easy on the eyes and comfortable on the body.
As far as the powertrain is concerned, the TVS Scooty Pep+ is powered by a 4-stroke single cylinder forced air-cooled engine that produces 3.68 kW at 6,500 rpm and 5.4 Nm of torque at 4,000 rpm.

TVS’ line of female-targeted Scooty scooters comes with a variety that few bike makers can compete with. One of these models is called the Scooty Streak, and true to its name, it’s got quite an impressive streak of looks and performance wrapped up in one body.
The fresh look of the Scooty Streak lends itself a refreshing vibe, including the rear LED lamp that makes the scooter look more up to the times. On top of that, the scooter now has a relocated fuel tank lid on the back of the seat, allowing riders easier access to the fuel tank whenever they need to refill the Streak. As a modern scooter, it’s important for the Streak to carry modern amenities, none more so than a new handphone charger that can be found just beneath the handlebar at the console.
At the heart of the TVS Scooty Streak isn’t the most powerful engine on the planet, but it does pack enough to make the ride very enjoyable. The Streak is powered by an 87.8cc four-stroke single cylinder forced air-cooled engine that produces 3.68 KW @ 6,500 RPM and 5.8 Nm of peak torque at 4,000 RPM.
There’s a certain level of realism that buyers have to understand with a scooter like the Scooty Streak. But if you understand what you’re getting into with the scooter, then you won’t find a whole lot of scooters that are worth your bucks more than TVS’ line of Scooty scooters.

Not everybody in India’s growing motorcycle market wants a bike that’s more powerful than they can handle. That’s good because TVS’ new bike, the Sport, isn’t cut out for the extreme mongers. Where it lies is in the hearts of those that enjoy a stylish motorbike with enough power to impress your peers.
As far as its looks are concerned, the TVS Sport has been dressed in dual tone color graphics. Meanwhile, the fuel tank of the TVS Sport is slight and the dual toned-side panel offers an attractive look. Moving on to the lights, the TVS Sport has been fitted with a multi-reflector clear headlamp and taillights that come with a clearer profile. The all-black style of the Sport also adds a look of aggression, and when combined with the graphics, makes for a bike that’s as eye-catching as it is mechanically capable.
Speaking of its performance, the TVS Sport is powered by 100cc, four-stroke engine that produces 7.8 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 7.5 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 RPM. Combine that with a 4-speed constant mesh transmission, a front telescopic hydraulic fork, a rear suspension with 5 stage adjustable shockers, and standard drum type brakes with alloy wheels and you have a motorbike that not only looks the part of winner, but performs like one too.
Indian bike maker TVS knows the value of introducing new models, especially in a market as big as India. That’s why for their 2012 line-up, TVS has developed a new variant of their sports bike range, called the Star City.
Don’t mistake it for a Honda or a Yamaha, despite what the overall look of the bike shows you. The Star City stands proud, thanks to a dual tone body color, a new headlamp, new indicators, and a choice of six different color options, ranging from Blue, Green, Red, Crimson, Gold, and Silver.
More than just its distinctive looks, the Star City also packs an impressive powertrain that features a 110cc CVTi engine and produces 8.2 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 8.1 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 RPM. Power from the engine courses through a four-speed transmission, with the fuel consumption rated at an impressive 83.9km/liter. Rounding out the features for the TVS Star City is an econometer, which gives the riders information about the fuel consumption, enabling them to be aware of how much gas is left on the tank.
