TVS to begin development of Graphite, set for launch next-year

TVS is looking forward on launching its performance scooter, which is likely to be christened the ‘Graphite’. It was spotted undergoing testing and spy pics reveal that the scooter is similarly styled to the one TVS showcases at the 2014 Auto Expo. It looks likely that the Graphite may be given either 125 cc or 150 cc engine, which could well, make it unique.

The company is also developing a new platform on which scooter will be built. It could have features like 30 mm Telescopic Suspension and active LED console, an inbuilt immobilizer and a smart a key too. On a major first,  the Graphite will be the first scooter in India to offer an option of AMT.

Looking at the concept model, the styling is aggressive and the spy pics also suggest that it is also reported that the Graphite could reach up to a top speed of 103 kmph this scooter, once launched, will set above the Jupiter in TVS’s scooter lineup.

The graphite will Rival the Aprilia SR 50 which currently is India’s only performance scooter. Given the success of TVS in the field of scooters, the Graphite also looks like a winner made from the company. Pricing is expected to be aggressive and the Graphite will surely set a roar in the market once it gets launched.
