New TVS Scooter could be a 125 or 150cc but manages to keep up and basically outrun, the Aprilia SR150 scooter, the best in the industry right now
The new TVS Graphite concept was showcased at 2014 Auto expo and now this concept is heading into production. The new TVS Graphite concept created a huge thrill at the 2014 Auto expo. Fans loved the funky machine with the racing spirit. After seeing the success of the Aprilia 150 in the Indian Market it might have triggered TVS to make the decision to start the production of the TVS graphite scooter.
New TVS Scooter is featuring very good looks and is loaded with features. New TVS Scooter was spied testing in Karnataka and could receive same features as seen in the concept. This will include dual channel dynamic ABS unit, LED console displays, an engine immobilizer and a smart electronic key along with Bluetooth.
Till now there is no news about the engine specifications of the TVS Graphite. What we expect is that it will feature a 150cc, 4-valve SOHC engine with fuel injection. It could also get an AMT gearbox as seen on the concept. The TVS graphite will be a performance oriented scooter and words spread that it was caught speeding along with Aprilia 150 doing a speed over 110 kmph.
The TVS graphite will be built on a new platform and was inspired by a stealth military aircraft’s engineering. This gets an underbone frame with high tensile steel which results in better stability. The TVS Graphite gets a 30mm telescopic suspension at front and gas charged damper at the rear. As far as breaking is concerned the TVS Graphite the front comes with disc brake and the rear has drum brakes. Some other features that were noted are smart lines, split grab rail, floorboard mounted fuel tank cap and a sleek head lamp.
Just like the new KTM Duke 390 the instrument console is fully digital and supports vehicle data and connectivity. The headlamp adds to the good looks of the scooter and it will come in dual color options, like the Matte Grey and Yellow which we saw at the 2014 show.
