This time, I will have 10 riders for company and that should make this a fun ride despite the challenging terrain. The TVS Scooty Zest 110, Himalayan Highs edition looks great and I am looking forward to achieving the feat with this machine yet again."
Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President, Marketing (Scooters), TVS Motor Company, said, "Anam's solo ride on the TVS Scooty Zest 110 to the highest motorable road was hugely inspirational for many women. It is their feedback and response that prompted the launch of Himalayan Highs Season 2, wherein Anam leads 10 women riders on their TVS Scooty Zest 110s back to Khardung-La. The riders are an amazing representation of the new age Indian woman in her many avatars. TVS Scooty Zest 110 has kept in step with the evolution of the new age Indian Women giving them a fun, exciting, comfortable and affordable ride in the city or to Khardung-La."
