Chennai based TVS Motors, better known for its automatic scooter, recently launched a disc brake version of TVS Wego. The scooter gets a front disc brake at a price of Rs. 49,157(Rs. 3000 costlier than the standard variant). The Wego becomes the second scooter to get a disc brake after Honda Aviator, however the later costs Rs 56,111.
The disc brake equipped TVS Wego will attract buyers, which gives safety an upper hand. The Wego already comes equipped with telescopic forks at front, and the disc brakes makes it even better. The scooter gets it power from a 110cc four stroke engine churns a maximum power output of 8bhp and 8Nm. It is also the only scooter to feature body balancing technique, thus with disc brakes, the Wego easily becomes the safest scooter in the country.
TVS Motors is struggling to maintain its share in the Indian two-wheeler market, and the new disc brake variant of Wego will surely add numbers to its sales charts. To boost up the sales, TVS is also planning to launch three new vehicles later this year, including two scooters and a bike. The new bike will be the re-entry of its successful bike Victor and two scooters will be a new 125cc scooter and India's first hybrid scooter TVS Qube. These three new scooters might change TVS' stars in India. For now, the new Wego has provided an affordable option for those who looks for added safety features on their rides.
