The Scooty Zest 110 is TVS Motor Co's latest automatic scooter, joining the company's Wego and Jupiter, all sharing the same engine capacity. It's the latest variant of this popular fairer sex-focused TVS product, the first of which launched decades ago in October 1993.
Getting on the scooter, it's immediately apparent that the Scooty Zest 110 is built with the youth and fairer sex foremost in mind, a compact, petite scooter that offers fresh styling, yet a familiar looking fascia with flush-fitted chic indicators, these nestled in a two-tone front apron.
The Zest 110 instruments are backlit, with a legible speedometer, odometer and fuel-gauge, along with a TVS-trademark econometer in place to help riders get the best mileage from their scooter. Also to assist efficiency, there's an idle indicator that lights up whenever the scooter has idled for a long duration when stationary. Supple, high-quality grips and nice switches are in place, the light new Zest 110 offering push-to-cancel turn signal indicators, and the much needed on a scooter rear brake lock clamp, that allows safer parking of this gearless vehicle. Mirrors are body coloured to match the rest of the scooter and do a good job of providing ample view behind.
The Scooty Zest 110 offers an optional front storage bin, that can be unscrewed and removed when not required. There's two retractable bag hooks, and the riding saddle covers a large, 19-litre storage bay. The scooter tail comes with an LED-powered brake warning light, which sits between a pair of rear turn indicators. The pillion footrests tuck away into little coves when not in use. And there's a side stand down warning indicator that works to remind you to put up the stand when riding away. Putting the Zest 110 on its main stand is effortless thanks to the stand being thoughtfully engineered for light, easy operation. In a clever touch, the Zest 110 comes with a silver painted, fiber grab handle that looks just as nice as alloy, yet offers added strength. Overall quality and fit finish are good on this new TVS scooter.
