After launching a retro-fitment kit for the differently-abled on the XL100, TVS has extended this optional feature on the Scooty Pep Plus. The price? Just Rs 11,699. That's a premium of Rs 462 over XL100’s contraption. The assembly has been designed and developed by TVS in-house, so there's additional peace of mind. Moreover, it's been approved by ARAI.
The fitment procedure is pretty straightforward and requires a couple of bolts to latch onto the scooter. As easy as its sounds, we'd leave the job to professionals. A set of extra wheels suspended off a rigid structure and an armstrong suspension ensure better stability. The unit features pillion footrests and provisions for holding crutches too. The fender covers for the wheels are manufactured from 16-inch gauge sheet metal. That said, the overall structure though is rather light, according to the company and doesn’t hamper performance by much.
Now, you’re probably wondering why the kit’s only available on two scooters. It’s not. In fact, you could also opt for the very same retro-fitment kit on the TVS Wego and Jupiter for Rs 11,999. The slight price hike could be attributed to the alterations made for the slightly different mounting points.
