See how the Taiwanese electric scooter fares against its Indian counterpart

The 2022 Kymco S6 Ionex is out with a modern design language, powerful motor and an insane price tag! Here’s how it stacks up against its desi rival, the TVS iQube in images.

The Kymco S6 Ionex packs a very neat persona, thanks to its clean design complemented with sharp black accents. Both scooters have a rounded front end, however the S6 Ionex has a very unique front fender mounting, coupled with an exposed telescopic suspension, which definitely helps it stand out when compared with the TVS iQube.

The TVS electric scooter on the other hand looks more compact, due to the simple design of the side body panels. 

Looking at the front end of both scooters, the iQube gets a dual tone handlebar cowl with an integrated DRL which looks a class apart when compared with the monotone cowl of the S6 Ionex. The dual tone theme continues on the apron as well, while the Ionex gets a single tone front fascia. Both scooters get LED headlights.

The S6 Ionex gets a negatively charged LCD display which looks cool as it blends into the bodywork perfectly. However, the iQube features a more premium multicolour TFT display, which can also be paired to a smartphone, a feature which is missing in the Ionex.

The TVS iQube also gets SmartXonnect, which provides navigation assist, remote charge status, geofencing and incoming call alerts. All these features are not available in the S6 Ionex.

Powering the Ionex is a 6.5kW (8.8PS) electric motor producing 215Nm at the rear wheel. It comes with a claimed range of 155 km when ridden at 30 kmph, while the iQube has a 4.3kW (5.8PS) motor developing 140Nm, and a claimed range of 83 km on Eco mode. The TVS iQube however, gets rider assists like Q-park assist, which allows for forward and backwards acceleration.

Both scooters boast of ample under-seat storage space, and also have USB charging ports to allow for phone charging. The iQube however, comes with 90/90-12 tyres while the S6 Ionex comes with chunkier 110/70-12 tyres, which should give the S6 Ionex an edge in terms of handling. 

Both electric scooters get telescopic suspension and dual shocks at the rear. However, they differ in terms of braking hardware. The iQube gets a disc brake at the front coupled to a drum brake at the rear, while the S6 Ionex gets discs at both ends.

The S6 Ionex gets a very narrow flowy LED taillight, when compared to the chunky LED tail lamp of the iQube. The Taiwanese scooter, however, gets a cool-looking rear grab rail that’s integrated into the rear seat support, while the iQube has to do with a traditional grab rail.

Priced at 82,800 Yuan, equivalent to Rs 9.52 lakh, the S6 Ionex is an incredibly expensive scooter, compared to the feature-loaded TVS iQube that is priced at Rs 1.38 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi). The iQube rivals the Ather 450X, Ola S1 Pro and Bajaj Chetak.
