Mystery TVS Performance Scooters Spied

TVS Upcoming Scooter

TVS has been testing performance scooters on the NH4 highway, which was snapped by Team-BHP member rk_sans. There were two different scooters (one had a fixed headlight) and the rider was wearing TVS branded helmet and Flame branded jacket. However the speedometer had a Honda logo on it. Clearly the company is trying to create confusion but the stylish of the scooters clearly give it away to be a TVS product. The overall quality of the scooters point to a hurried job.

TVS already had such type of performance scooters on sale in other markets. The Tormax, RockZ, Neo XR are some products available in Indonesia. Thus these particular scooters might be on test for export markets and would not be launched in India anytime soon. The rider was said to be riding at quite good speeds and thus the engine powering these scooters is most likely a 150cc. The TVS Tormax 150 uses a liquid cooled turbo engine with 3-valve technology, which produces 13.2 BHP of power at 8000 RPM and 12.5 Nm of torque at 5500 RPM. This could be the same engine which is doing duty on these camouflaged scooters.

The Indian market is not ready for performance scooters yet. Most people buy scooters for the easy of riding and good fuel economy. Thus a launch of such scooters from the TVS stable is quite unlikely. Probably TVS is testing them in India to prevent leaks from happening in Indonesia, where these scooters are most likely headed. These performance scooters have 14-inch wheels and a front disc brake. The step-through scooters are very popular in many markets but would you buy one in India?

      Rahul, probably, probably not. The rider does have TVS gear on him.

  • pranav

    It has TURBO?

    • http://www.motorbeam.com/ Faisal Khan

      Pranav, yes it does.

    TVS does not have a performance scooter in Indonesia. The vehicles you have mentioned are all step – thru’s (like Hero Honda Street). Though Honda and Yamaha have scooters (have 15″ wheels), TVS is yet to launch one there – so doesnt look like we will have them anytime soon.

      HJ Nagaraja, 150cc does put it into performance category.

  • H J Nagaraja

    Dear Faisal,
    Please get your facts right – there are NO mass market turbo – charged two wheelers in the world. Tormax is not a scooter, it is a step – thru. There are no 150cc scooters (unlike India, scooters there are slim and have 15″ wheels) in Indonesia. Even two wheelers are a luxury there and just like India, majority of the Indonesians cannot afford a 150cc scooter – The Honda PCS 125 is the largest cc in Indonesia.

      H J Nagaraja, I am sorry about the confusion. The Tormax is a 150cc scooter though and it has a turbo (according to TVS Indonesia website).

    @Faisal Khan
    Yes, indeed it`s called Honda Beat in Indonesia.

    @HJ Nagaraja
    now there is PCX 150cc scooter sold in Indonesia
