I admit having a soft spot for Scooty Pep series. Someone who used to be very close to heart owns one. The fact that I did not have what it takes to woo her is another (boring) story. Anyway, time to put the irrelevant bits aside and wear the cap of a motoring journo. So, here we go.
Think of TVS Scooty Pep/ Pep + and the words that come to your mind may probably be ‘girly’. It may also remind you of that pretty girl from your neighborhood. Scooty Pep has clicked very well with the fairer sex and it is thanks to its light weight, soft appearance, color options and a motor that is frugal yet peppy.
One thing that I personally like about these little scooters from TVS is that they handle quite well. Thanks to well sorted telescopic shocks up front combined with light weight, the Scooty makes for one nimble and agile bike.
Seems like success of the ‘Babelicious’ Collection has influenced TVS Motor Company to launch a new version of the Scooty Streak. It is an all black version and comes with attractive graphics to co-relate with the uber-cool and ‘gen Y’ youth that this new version is aimed at. The new TVS Scooty Streak can be bought in five different graphics to complement the Black paint job as per your tastes.
TVS Scooty Streak has slightly lower contoured seat which gives better ergonomics to the bike,hence added comfort and better ride quality. The trendy bike comes with broad tyres that provide better wet braking stability and as is the norm with most scooterettes these days, this one too comes equipped with an external fuel fill at the rear for easier and convenient refuelling. The easy-center stand allows one to put the bike on the stand almost effortlessly. At the risk of sounding sexist, I feel its my duty to add that the last feature will be loved by the fairer sex. The bike is also fitted with a mobile charger and a lockable front glove box. The chunky rear view mirrors not just complement the design well but offer a good view of what all gets left behind. The edgy head lamps, LED tail-lamps and blacked out exhaust,etc. surely seem to be successful in making Scooty Streak among the most stylish scooters for young girls. Though, I won’t be too surprised to see a few male riders on this little thing here.
