The TVS Scooty has been a fun experience for 25 years. This is also a significant milestone, as the Scooty brought many young Indian women on two wheels. Most women drivers on the road today, not limited to two-wheelers, tasted independence on the TVS Scooty. To ensure this phenomenon of personal mobility spread far and wide, TVS Scooty, initiated “Women on Wheels” – India’s first two-wheeler Rider Training Institute for women.
Over the years, TVS has backed this journey of staying relevant with multiple innovations. These include the introduction of India’s first mass customisation program “99 colours”, and celebratory specials like the Wimbledon edition series. The Scooty has also earned its place in the record books when the Zest 110 became the first 110cc scooter to scale the highest motorable road in the world, Khardung La, (India Book of Records). This led to one of the most loved social media and experiential campaign – Himalayan Highs. Over the last three years, this campaign has further built on the popular brand franchise while creating brand advocates.
Speaking on this occasion, Aniruddha Haldar, vice president (Marketing), commuter motorcycles, scooters and corporate brand, TVS Motor Company, said, ” TVS Scooty Pep+, is much more than just India’s No. 1 economical scooter catering to over 4.5 million customers. In its journey of 25 years, it has always evolved to stay relevant to its purpose of being the most viable mobility option for the New Age Indian women. It has always made their commute affordable, comfortable, safe and fun. Most families pass down their TVS Scootys instead of reselling them. This is a measure of love that the brand has enjoyed. We are humbled and grateful to the generations of proud TVS Scooty owners, who built this brand to its iconic status, and made it synonymous with female mobility in India.”
