TVS have launched their refreshed 2014 Wego scooter. The scooter market is getting increasingly competitive, and TVS has responded earlier with the brand new Jupiter, and now with the 2014 Wego. In its new, 2014 avatar, the Wego is priced at Rs 48,857 ex-Mumbai for the front drum brake variant. There is also a higher spec variant offering a 220mm front disk brake, priced at Rs 49,580. The price of the Wego in New Delhi starts at Rs. 46,410 ex- showroom
The new TVS WEGO comes with new features and is also available in new solid and two-tone colours. In addition to the feature related and cosmetic changes, TVS Motor Company has incorporated several improvements in the engine of the new TVS WEGO. The focus has been on refinement and smoothness, and TVS claims that the new Wego is now one of the smoothest performers in its class. Wego now shares the 110cc engine with the Jupiter which boasts higher compression ratio and remapped ignition. Quick starts in cold-weather, better efficiency and smoothness are the advantages associated with the new engine. We’ll judge the new engine once we conduct a road test.
In terms of tech specs, the Wego is powered by a 110cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine dishing out 8 PS of power @ 7500 rpm and 8 Nm of torque @ 5500 rpm. Fuel efficiency is rated at 62 kmpl by TVS
While many wouldn’t have noticed, the WEGO is the only all metal bodied scooter in India.
The features on the 2014 WEGO include
- Fully digital instrument console
- Tubeless tyres
- Parking brakes
- New exhaust muffler (seems to have been taken from the Jupiter)
- TVS patented econometer
- The new TVS WEGO comes with fresh graphics in monotone and new dual tone colours
- The seat has been slightly worked upon
- 12 inch alloy wheels
- Telescopic front suspension
- Gas filled rear shock absorbers
- Multi-reflector halogen headlamp
- LED tail lamp with optical guides
The styling of TVS WEGO enabled it to become the recipient of the prestigious India Design Mark (I Mark) by the India Design Council. We have always maintained that the Wego is one of the best scooters on sale in India today, and together with the Jupiter, makes it mandatory for the buyers in the segment to be test ridden before making a decision.
