125cc two wheelers is the latest trend. The market for 125cc two wheelers has consistently been increasing, prompting many manufacturers to consider producing 125cc vehicles. It is no news that TVS is also a new entrant to already existing list of competitors in this segment. TVS had earlier announced its plans to launch a 125cc scooter which will be positioned above its own Wego. The spy snaps of these scooters are making rounds which more or less looks like Honda Activa. But, a closer look at the picture can assure us that it is truly a TVS brain child. What makes us so sure about it being TVS is its registration number plate, the engine casing and the alloys wheel design (probably 12-inch or more in size).
The scooter that is being tested for fuel efficiency (we are assuming it looking at the fuel bottle). The test vehicle is equipped with things such as front mudguard, the headlight, grab rail, the rear tailpiece , vertically stacked exhaust, shutter lock and the rear mounted fuel filler cap, inspired from Honda Activa. We cannot say more about other features of the scooter as TVS may have disguised it calculatedly. Disguising its products as something else is TVS’s old job; the company is an old hand at it.
TVS testing its new scooter indicates that the scooter will be launched soon. As we said earlier, there are many good companies that are bidding high with their products in the 125cc category. Some major players in this segment are Suzuki, Piaggio and Yamaha, who are fighting the battle with their high power engines. Other companies which are making plans to enter the 125cc category are Hero and Honda.
