TVS Wego OverView
TVS Wego Overview
TVS Wego - just another one of the countless options that are offered by the booming scooter market of India today, and yet there is something so unique and out of the ordinary about this particular scooter that within two years of its launch, which took place in 2009, it outran all its competitors, including the iconic Honda Activa, to claim the award for the 2011 Scooter of the Year for itself. The first ride of its kind in India to offer the remarkable Body Balance feature, this scooter comes from the factories of the fourth largest two-wheeler manufacturer of the country, the TVS Motor Company, which is one of the most experienced players of its field and has recently been awarded with the prestigious title of the 2012 Most Trusted Brand in two-wheeler category.
Belonging to the same clan as the famous TVS Scooty, which was more of a female ride, TVS Wego is much better accomplished as a unisex scooter, possessing the strong and sturdy build that a man seeks in his ride while providing an exceptionally easy handling that women especially appreciate. Claimed to have costed its manufacturers a massive amount of Rs 50 crore during development, this scooter has a lot of premium features and advanced fitments to offer its buyers like telescopic suspensions, multi-reflector halogen headlamps, maintenance free battery, on-board battery-cum-mobile charger and the likes, which together make it worthy of every penny that it costs its creators as well as its owners.
TVS Wego Designing
TVS Wego Designing
Paying strict attention to the details has always been a quality closely associated with TVS rides, and the same goes for TVS Wego as well. Blessed with a body that not only looks great but also provides ample comfort, convenience and ease for both sexes, this scooter has been built off a High Rigidity Under Bone type chassis, featuring overall dimensions of 1837 x 640 x 1115mm (length x breadth x height) while providing a decent ground clearance of 150mm and a long wheelbase of 1275mm. Within this body-frame, the Wego offers several storage options, including a capacious under seat storage compartment of 15 litres, a large front-end luggage box and a key hook next to the ignition key socket to grab hold of small bags and baggages, adding immensely to the convenience zone.
What makes this intelligent design even better is the metallic nature of the body, which promises better durability than the plastic structures that many of its rivals don, not to mention the assistance that this framework offers to the stability of the ride. In addition to that, the well-contoured style and large dimensions of the seat ensure superior comfort for both the riders while the special material of which it has been made helps it in maintaining its ergonomically-planned shape for longer durations, accentuating the comfort levels even further. Two unique features that are found exclusively in this particular offering only are those of the Body Balance technology and the TVS-patented E-Z centre stand. While the amazing body balance feature makes sure that the ride never goes awry, the E-Z centre stand makes parking the scooter on the main stand unbelievably easy, both for men and women.
TVS Wego Appearance
When we talk about looks, TVS Wego is nothing like its Scooty sisters. In fact, it is the exact opposite of what they are. Where the Scooty siblings are lean, Wego is brawny; where Scooty siblings lack flair, Wego is full of it; where Scooty siblings have an innate female feel about them, Wego looks perfect for guys while not appearing to be too bulky for girls either. The 90/90 – 12 alloy wheels that support the structure of this smart and trendy scooter add a classy touch to its styling, enhancing the quality of the ride at the same time, thanks to their large size.
With bold character lines running across its body, TVS Wego sports an extremely stylish outfit that boasts of sharply-carved edges. What adds to the charm of this ride are the little details like the exquisitely designed taillamp, the stylish shape of the air vent in the front, the neatly carved vertical blinkers featured on the front apron and the unique design of the rear grab rails – every tiny thing adds up in the Wego to create an exciting and alluring package, perfect for the energetic youth of the country.
TVS Wego Engine And Performance
TVS Wego Engine and Performance
Excellent in looks, TVS Wego does not disappoint its owners when it comes to power ratings either. The 109.7cc, 4-stroke, single-cylinder, air-cooled, OHC petrol mill that sits under its hood holds the potential of pumping out a peak 8bhp at 7500rpm along with a top 8Nm of torque at 5500rpm. These impressive power and torque figures, being just as good as those offered by the country's favourite, Honda Activa, form a pretty strong point for the Wego. However, the best quality of its power-mill is not displayed until it is taken for a spin.
Tuned to the finest level possible, there is hardly any other engine in the market today that can parallel the refinement that the makers of Wego have succeeded in achieving. With friction and noise cut down to unbelievably low levels, TVS Wego gives the smooth and subtle impression of an electric scooter on the move. To accompany this brilliantly-engineered motor, a V-matic transmission gearbox and a self-cum-kick-start ignition system have also been employed by the Chennai-based automaker.
TVS Wego Mileage
The fuel-economy of TVS Wego lies somewhere between 45-50kmpl, which when combined with its fuel tank capacity of 5 litres accounts for a non-stop ride of 225-250km.
TVS Wego Braking And Handling
TVS Wego Braking and Handling
Despite employing a set of Drum brakes, measuring 130mm in diameter both for the front as well as the rear end, TVS Wego offers a strong and accurate braking action, thereby, instigating complete confidence in the driver to tackle even the worst kinds of traffic and road conditions with absolute ease. What helps this braking system in its operation are the 12-inch 90/90 alloy wheels, which provide a good and firm road grip.
As for the suspension, the unit swing with spring loaded hydraulic damper that works for the rear wheel irons out every bump and jerk very effectively, not allowing any pothole to ruin the comfort of the pillion rider. It is the front-mounted in-line telescopic suspension that needs to be upgraded as it does not prove that effective in absorbing the jolts during the ride and transfers them to the handlebars, causing inconvenience to the driver. Other than that, there are no major issues regarding the handling of the Wego as it feels agile, turns effortlessly and provides an extremely risk-free ride thanks to its innovative body-balance technology.

Besides an efficient braking system and a set of 20% larger wheels, which provide considerably high levels of safety, TVS Wego also features ergonomically shaped grab rails at the rear end for the convenience of the pillion rider. Apart from that, the scooter also houses a 12V battery to power the 12V LED tail-lights with optical guide and the 12V 35W halogen headlamps for uniform illumination during night time drives.
