The TVS XL is a name that every single Indian recognises. It is an iconic moped that started off with a really small 2-stroke engine. Over the years, it has come to be powered by a larger 100cc, four-stroke engine. As it turns out, it is the only 100cc scooter/moped in the country today. The heavy-duty air-cooled, 99.7cc engine puts out 4.33bhp at 6,000rpm and 6.5Nm at 3,500rpm. It is one of the most trusted names in the automotive industry and will be so for many years to come.
The TVS Scooter Pep as it turns out is the only other scooter with an engine capacity that comes close to 100cc. The zippy and attractive little scooter is powered by a 87.8cc, air-cooled engine with a maximum power output of 5.3bhp at 6,500rpm and a peak torque output of 6.5Nm at 3,500rpm. The Scooty Pep is also the lightest scooter in the market with a weight of 93 kilograms. Available in a number of attractive colour options, the Scooty Pep still remains a favourite among beginners.
