The TVS Scooty Streak is a lightweight scooter which has been manufactured keeping the female riders in mind; the scooter was very much popular amongst Indian women when it was launched. The new scooter looks trendy and offers peppy performance and also safety features which are impressive. Scooty streak also offers good fuel economy but according to its features the price is little on the stiffer side but if TVS somehow manages to price the scooter aggressively then it may attract some more attention towards it.
“TVS has priced this Scooty very close to the grown up scooters like Honda Dio and Activa which are far more powerful and comfortable than Streak. We agree it looks stylish and offers impressive fuel economy but what about its small engine. It can’t match the ride and performance quality of Hero Pleasure which is also a female oriented scooter and is available almost at the same price. TVS should have kept its price low to make its successful in our market.” - Maxabout
