Overview

TVS introduced the word Scooty in India which represented a gearless scooter. It’s quite popular amongst female riders and it’s also the largest selling scooter in its segment. In 2005, TVS launched the Pep Plus variant of Scooty which is still under production. Let’s try to know more about this successful variant.

Exterior

TVS Scooty Pep Plus is a compact two wheeler which looks modern and stylish. It’s available in dual tone shades with new graphics. This new variant features noticeable changes at its front. It looks more shaper than before as TVS has added striking lines on its front fender which forms the nose of this Scooty. The new integrated clear lens indicators have been elongated and add charm to its appearance. Its sleek headlight is fitted in its body colored cowl which also features an integrated visor. The rear view mirrors are also mounted on its cowl which is body colored and add premium touch to it. The side panels follow the dual tone color scheme and goes well with its body colored rear grab rail. Its small muffler is black in color and features a chrome heat shield on it. Scooty features silver finished alloy rims which are very small in size. The rear cowl features a tail light and integrated yellow colored side indicators. Its long rear fender which carries the number plate and reflector light almost covers its rear tyre completely.

Instrument Console

TVS Scooty Pep Plus has an analogue instrument console which features integrated speedometer and fuel gauge. Other indicators are also placed inside this instrument console. It lacks trip meter but features an analogue odometer. TVS has incorporated Scooty with a smart mobile charging point which gives it an advantage over others.

Engine and Gearbox

TVS has used a single cylinder, 4-stroke 87.8cc engine in Scooty Pep Plus. It generates a maximum power output of 5 bhp at 6500 rpm. The torque production of this air-cooled engine is of 5.8 Nm which arrives at 4000 rpm. It uses an automatic transmission with torque sensor.

Acceleration and Performance

Don’t expect this engine to surprise you from its extraordinary performance. It’s a light engine which is designed to favour the city usage. It’s quite easy and convenient to use thanks to its automatic transmission. You always stay away from the tension of gear shifting and its early torque building never let you feel if it’s an automatic machine. TVS has reduced the rubber band effect by increasing its torque amount. It manages to get a respectable torque to weight ratio which makes it quite nimble in city traffic. The throttle response keeps this Scooty on the move and it can easily reach the speed of 50km/hr. It feels a very refined engine which tries to stay calm even if you rev it hard. One can cross the top speed of 70km/hr with this Scooty. It’s not meant to take on highways as it become quite audible after crossing the speed of 60km/hr. Even in city also if you are riding with a pillion rider then you will notice the considerable drop in its performance. You can drive it at a respectable speed without any complaint.

Mileage

Its light weight and small engine makes it extremely fuel efficient. The mileage of Scooty ranges between 65-70 km/ltr.

Comfort while Driving

TVS has placed a broad and long seat on Scooty which makes it perfect for two people. It’s a very comfortable seat and also offers nice under-thigh support. Scooty has a flat floor which gives nice space to your feet. It’s not that convenient for tall riders though as your knees may find it hard to fit in. Scooty feels under control thanks to its firm palm grip.

Storage Space and Safety Features

TVS Scooty Pep Plus offers a lot of storage space. It has ample amount of under seat storage space while it also features an open glove box at the front. Its flat board and bag hook can also be used to carry bags. Moreover, there is an integrated carrier at the back. Its bright headlight gives you clear vision of roads at night.

Suspension and Brakes

TVS Scooty Pep Plus features hydraulic telescopic forks at its front and mono-coil spring at the back. This suspension system easily takes its weight and gives you comfortable rides. The braking system of Scooty features drum brakes on its both wheels. The front tyre is fitted with a 100mm drum brake while the rear tyre gets a drum brake of 110mm.

Ride and Handling

Looking at the majority of female riders, TVS has used a lighter body for Scooty which needs less effort while driving. This Scooty weighs around 95kgs and can move frequently in city traffic. You can steer it through tight spaces easily. Its suspension and braking system is very effective according to its weight. It always stays under control. The hydraulic shock absorbers can take most of the potholes easily. It finds hard to cross the high speed breakers as it has a low ground clearance of 135mm. The high speed stability is impressive but its tiny tyres spoil the game. They don’t offer firm road grip and also affects its turning abilities. It has a wheelbase of 1230mm which brings some stability to it.

Tyre Size and Variants

It has small R10 sizes of tyres. Electric start is a standard feature of Scooty Pep Plus. It is available in only one variant.

Shades

Scooty Pep Plus is available in 12 shades:

Starlet Series - Frosted Black and Vivacious Purple

White and Wacky Collection - Vista Blue, Spring Green, Perky Pink, Passion Purple and Blush Red.

Base Series - Electric Red, Night Black, Perky Pink and Purple Mischief

Babelicious Series - Pink Princess

Verdict

TVS Scooty Pep Plus will cost you around INR 39.5K (ex-showroom, Delhi (approx., may vary)). Its low pricing makes it the first choice of many teenage girls. Scooty looks smart and comes with all essential features. Moreover with high fuel economy, it’s also quite easy on pocket. It can be used by anyone and offers nice storage options although its less powerful engine and feminine looks keeps male buyers away from it. It sounds like a good deal and would have been a perfect choice if had bigger tyres and more powerful engine.
