KTM Electric Scooter in the Making: According to the recent buzz, KTM is all set to use the new Bajaj Chetak’s platform as the base for its upcoming premium electric scooter, which is expected to go into production in 2022. The Austrian manufacturer offered a first look at what to expect from their electric scooter by showcasing the KTM E-Speed concept back in 2013.

The electric mobility for the upcoming KTM scooter is expected to be based on the Bajaj Chetak electric while there won’t be any style similarities between the two. The Bajaj Chetak electric features a retro-modern design language challenging the authentic scooter looks while the upcoming electric scooter from KTM will get an edgy design language with authentic KTM bits and colour combination of orange and white.

The reports also suggest that the KTM might collaborate with KISKA Automotive solution to carry out an interesting scooter design with unique electric mobility.

Since the brand has already tried making its niche in the electric two-wheeler segment with the KTM Freeride E-XC, which is currently available in the international markets, one can expect the brand to equip the upcoming electric scooter with more premium components and offering better riding capabilities.

KTM is expected to launch the upcoming premium electric scooter in the developed nations like the US and Europe first, followed by the other developing countries including India.

Currently, the Bajaj Chetak electric is powered by an IP67-rated lithium-ion battery mated to a 4kW electric motor that promises a maximum range up to 95km while the top speed stands at 65kmph. The braking duties are handled by a front disc brake and a rear drum brake. The KTM electric scooter is expected to feature the same motor and battery specifications though, other details will be uncovered once the scooter goes into the prototype stage.

The Suzuki Saluto 125 was revealed by the brand at the 2020 Taipei Motor Show back in January this year. Based on the underpinnings of the Suzuki Access, the Saluto scooter is powered by the same 124cc single-cylinder engine that powers the Access 125 in the Indian market.

Coming to the major differences, the Suzuki Saluto 125 features a retro-modern design language that is further inspired by the very-famous Lambretta scooters. The scooter features chrome detailing on the body panels while the sportier accents add to its uniqueness.

The handlebar cowl at the front has been equipped with an LED headlamp mounted at the middle which is further mated to LED DRLs. The rear section of the scooter has been equipped with a unique tail lamp design while the LED indicators have been integrated neatly into the body fairing. The brand has further equipped the Suzuki Saluto 125 with a semi-digital instrument panel that features a chrome bezel on top accentuating its overall neo-retro appeal.

Powering the scooter is a 124cc single-cylinder engine that is capable of offering maximum power of 9.4HP and a peak torque of 10Nm. Comparing the power and torque figures with the ones offered by the Suzuki Access 125, the latter is good for 8.7HP of power while the torque remains the same at 10Nm.

The Suzuki Saluto 125 has been equipped with a disc brake at the front while the rear features a drum brake setup mated to a CBS. The suspension duties are handled by telescopic forks at the while the rear wheel has been equipped with a monoshock suspension. The brand has further equipped the all-new scooter with a keyless ignition in addition to offering a hazard light and a multi-function ignition slot.

The chances of Suzuki Saluto 125’s launch in the Indian market looks negligible. If launched in India, the all-new Saluto 125 will compete in the market with the likes of Piaggio Vespa 125 portfolio.

As per the latest updates, the nationwide lockdown has been extended till May 17, 2020. So if the nationwide lockdown will end on May 17, 2020, the dealerships or manufacturers would be allowed to sell their BS4 products from May 18 to May 27 and not after that.

The 2020 Yamaha Tricity 155 has been recently launched by the brand in the Japanese markets. The MY2020 variant of the trike will be available to the customers in Japan from May 15, 2020.

Coming to the updated offering, the all-new variant of the 155cc trike will now be available with an all-new colour scheme namely Blue-ish Grey Solid that has been specifically designed to offer a fresher appeal to the two-wheeler. Apart from the new colour edition, the MY2020 avatar of the Tricity 155 remains the same when compared to its last-gen version.

In addition to new body graphics that have been imparted to the new colour variant of the trike, the brand has also equipped the Tricity 155 with all-new blue alloy wheels to complement the overall design further. The leather-clad comfortable seat features blue stitching while the combination of overall grey with blue accents further accentuates the premium profile ten folds.

The new colour scheme now features revised decals on the front fender while the brand has also allotted blue accents to the tail cowl. The 2020 Yamaha Tricity 155 will now be available to the customers in Japan in three colour schemes namely Matte Grey Metallic, White Metallic, and Blue-ish Grey Solid. The first two colour schemes have been carried forward from the last-gen variant while the new colour scheme replaces the Matte Vivid Purplish Blue Metallic colour scheme available with its last-gen avatar.

Powering the trike is the same 155cc, single-cylinder, water-cooled, 4-stroke engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 15 HP at 8000 rpm and a peak torque of 14 Nm at 6000 rpm. The engine remains mated to a CVT gearbox while the fuel efficiency stands at 41.7 kmpl. The all-new graphics as well as alloy wheels setup is only available for the new colour scheme.

The customers can avail the 2020 Yamaha Tricity 155 at a price tag of JPY 484,000 (INR 3.42 lakh) which is identical to the price tag of its last-gen version. The brand has currently targeted selling 1200 units of the trike in Japan in the FY2020. As of now, Yamaha has no plans to launch the Tricity 155 in the Indian markets.

According to the recent reports, the TVS Wego 110 has been discontinued from the brand’s portfolio for the Indian market. The scooter will not be available for sales in India though the brand has not pulled the plug on the production of the two-wheeler. The scooter will be manufactured only for exports to the international markets.

The brand has decided not to offer the 110cc scooter with a BS6-compliant engine that is now necessary for every new vehicle across India. The scooter was launched back in 2010 while the brand had put on several efforts to make it rise high on the sales charts by offering multiple colour schemes and updating the graphic detailing. Even the addition of the BS4-compliant engine in 2017 didn’t result in moderate sales for the two-wheeler thus leading to the removal from the portfolio ultimately.

The heavily-camouflaged version of the TVS Wego 110 was spotted back in 2018 hinting at the launch of a new variant though that never made it to the Indian markets. Powering the TVS Wego 110 is a BS4-compliant, 110cc, single-cylinder engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 7.99 HP at 7,500 rpm and a peak torque of 8.4 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a CVT gearbox.

The two-wheeler has been equipped with a sporty design language while the stunning colour scheme adds to its aesthetics. The brand has equipped the scooter with a digital speedometer while the LED setup has been offered to the taillight unit.

The scooter features a 20-litre utility box as well as an external fuel filler. The TVS Wego was available in the markets in two trims namely Standard and Dual Tone. The former was available at a price tag of INR 53,469 while the latter was priced at INR 54,369 and features a maintenance-free battery.

Bajaj Chetak Beats TVS iQube (Sales Report): The electric vehicle segment has not taken strong roots in the Indian markets as of yet though the customers have indeed started inclining towards the greener technology for the sake of the environment. Ruled by Ather Energy for so long, the Bajaj Chetak Electric has finally climbed to the top of the sales chart of March 2020, leaving behind the TVS iQube with a considerable margin.

The electric two-wheelers are doing far better than the electric four-wheeler segment which is currently owned by big brands like Mahindra, MG Motors, Hyundai as well as Tata Motors. The e-scooter segment is currently the best market to invest in considering the sales factor as well as the customer’s interest.

The latest sales report for electric scooters includes TVS iQube which has been sorted on the second position after the Bajaj Chetak. The former has been able to register a total sales of 18 units in March 2020 while the sales number registered by Bajaj Chetak is far higher at 91 units. The total sales in the FY2020 for the TVS iQube only stands at 62 units while the Bajaj Chetak has done quite well by witnessing FY2020 sales of 212 units.
