TVS’ 110cc scooter, the Zest 110, received the much-needed BS6 updated last week. Its 110cc, air-cooled engine is now accompanied by fuel-injection and churns out 7.6bhp and 8.8Nm. Besides the revisions in its engine, TVS has kept the Zest unchanged in all other aspects. It is available in two variants – Himalayan High Series and Matte Series and costs Rs 58,460, which is a premium of around Rs 7,000 over its BS4 counterpart.
Piaggio India updated the Vespa line-up by launching the facelifted models of the VXL 125, SXL 125, VXL 150 and the SXL 150.
