TVS has launched the 2014 Wego scooter with new updates and equipment on offer, citing competition from the newly launched Suzuki Let’s 110cc scooter. Changes on the 2014 TVS Wego include new graphics, black alloy wheels and the addition of two new dual-tone colours for improving the aesthetics of the scooter. The Wego also gets new engine parts, redesigned seat and tail pipe that come from the Jupiter scooter. The scooter continues to get rear LED tail lights, body balance technology and an external fuel filler.
In terms of powertrain, TVS has now plonked the 110cc CVT-i engine from the Jupiter into the 2014 Wego. The engine gets a higher compression ratio and remapped ignition to ease cold starts. Also, the revised ignition assists with improved combustion. The engine also gets new piston with less friction, improving the durability of the component. The new engine now makes 8 PS of power and 8 Nm of torque, and returns an impressive fuel efficiency of 62 km/l.
The front gets in-line telescopic suspension and a unit swing with spring loaded hydraulic damper at the rear. Stopping power comes from 130 mm drum brakes at the front and rear, while a 220 mm front disc brake is available as an option. The new Wego was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in February this year. Surprisingly with the new equipment on offer, the Wego has still been priced the same at Rs. 48,857/- for the base variant with drum brakes, while the disc brake variant has been priced at Rs. 49,580/- (prices ex-showroom, Mumbai).
