New TVS Graphite scooter teased ahead of launch, India launch on 5th February 2018.
TVS Motor has teased the new Graphite scooter ahead of its launch on 5th of February, 2018. The video teaser reveals the tail-light of the scooter and the sound of the engine. The sound of the engine when the throttle is twisted makes us believe that this is definitely a scooter and also the tail-light looks similar to the one spotted on the Graphite test mule recently.
The Graphite was initially showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo in the form of a concept. While the concept vehicle featured AMT gearbox with paddle shifters and dual-channel ABS, these features are not likely to be offered on the production version of the scooter. The Graphite will be positioned as a premium scooter and gets features like 12-inch alloy wheels, fully digital console, LED tail-light, LED DRLs, engine kill switch and petal disc brake for the front wheel.
While the exact specifications are not known yet, the automaker could equip the Graphite with a 125cc or 150cc motor. This scooter can give tough competition to the Suzuki Access 125 and Honda Grazia 125. However, if the company decides to plonk a 150cc engine, the Graphite will compete with the Aprilia SR 150 and the Piaggio Vespa 150.
