When other companies are creating a mountain out of a mole hill, TVS has launched a brand new sccoty variant known as TVS scooty streak with no much hype and fanfare. Lots of of you could not know scooty streak was launched. Surprisingly, i have not come across any advertisement at the same time. Difficult instances wants frugal measures! Recession may be the result in for this low profile launch. Even so TVS has roped in tennis sensation Sania Mirza for the new streak. Quickly, we would see streak with mirza on silverscreen and on internet websites.
Anyway, when scooty pep plus is still going sturdy unaffected by the launch of Kinetic Flyte, Honda aviator and Suzuki Access. What the need of a different scooterette with the similar engine?? we dig out..
It really is new with modern razor edge styling. A prominent ridge in the front apron, nicely shaped headlamp and sharp wing mirrors makes the scooty streak to stand out. But at the side, streak is unexciting. Rear is dominated by a sizable chunky LED tail lamp with integrated turn indicators. TVS has mastered the art of applying LEDs. First an impressive apache RTR now it is utilized nicely in Streak. The modern styling is particular to get cheers from its target segment ?young girls. But at some angles, streak reminds me of low cost chinese electric scooterette.
It utilizes the exact same 90cc, 4-stroke air-cooled engine churning out 5bhp at 6500rpm and 5.8Nm of max torque at 4000rpm.Although the performance will not be streak virtue, this tiny motor offers commendable overall performance. The refined and smoother pick-up impressed us. The low and mid-punch is excellent and also the motor is peppy. Streak leading speed is really a decent 67kmph and it got from practically nothing to 60kph in 10 seconds. Having said that a larger displacement motor with a lot more energy will be fascinating. Scooty streak delivers an impressive mileage of 47kmpl in city situations where it truly is going to become made use of most.
When the wheelbase of streak is identical to scooty pep , it really is 1kg heavier than the latter. Also it makes use of wider puncture resistant 90*90-10 tyres at the front and also the rear. The fuel tank capacity is slightly decreased to 4.7L from 5L. You may throw gloves and chocolates for the little ones inside the glovebox. Underseat storage space is big and it may swallow a full face helmet.
The broad floorboard and exquisitely detailed pillion footrests tends to make both the rider and pillion to sit comfortably. But i talking about sania mirza not jordan. External fuel fill is actually a good solution, nonetheless, filling fuel is not as straightforward as in Kinetic flyte or Bajaj Kristal. You have got to acquire down to leading fuel as the fuel lid is placed in the rear cowl beneath the pillion grab handle.
Makes use of a frame using the engine as a stressed member that hyperlinks towards the scooter single rear shock absorber. Suspension in the front is by way of verified telescopic forks. The all aluminium shock absorbers presents a decent ride. 110mm drum brakes in the fore and aft are quiet adequate for this car. But rear brake locking clamp and fluorescent ignition slot identified in most scooters are absent in streak. Steering is quiet nimble and precise at city riding speeds.
