TVS X Electric Scooter First Ride Review: A Technological Marvel with a Hefty Price Tag

Published on

TVS has introduced the much-anticipated TVS X electric scooter. This cutting-edge two-wheeler has been making headlines for its technological prowess and premium features. But the question on everyone’s mind is, does it justify its premium price tag?

Stylish Design

The TVS X doesn’t disappoint when it comes to aesthetics. Drawing inspiration from the Creon Electric concept, it boasts a striking design with a four-beam vertical LED headlamp, cleverly positioned cornering lights, and sleek body panels designed for aerodynamic efficiency. The 12-inch black alloy wheels, blue accents, and a compact LED tail lamp contribute to its visual appeal.

Practicality Challenges

While the TVS X shines in the looks department, practicality takes a back seat. Its under-storage can accommodate a single full-face helmet, but the floorboard is occupied by the non-removable battery pack and charging port. This could limit its versatility for daily commuting.

Ride Quality & Handling

During the initial test rides, the TVS X showcased its sporty persona. The suspension setup is on the stiffer side, making it suitable for short city commutes. The long wheelbase, reinforced by an offset side-mounted rear monoshock and telescopic front forks, delivers stability and agility, especially while cornering.

Largest Infotainment System on Two Wheels

The TVS X boasts a game-changing 10.2-inch tiltable touchscreen, setting a new standard for electric scooters. It functions as an integrated smartphone, offering internet browsing, turn-by-turn navigation, call functionality, and much more. It’s customizable and even includes essential vehicle information and a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS).

Tech & Brakes

Beyond the impressive infotainment system, the TVS X packs a punch with features like keyless ignition, an anti-theft alarm, adjustable levers, and cruise control. The front and rear disc brakes, supported by a single-channel ABS system, provide reliable stopping power.

Ride Modes, Top Speed & Range

The TVS X offers three distinct ride modes – Xtealth, Xtride, and Xonic. Xonic, known for spirited riding, showcases its capabilities with an impressive top speed. The scooter accelerates swiftly, reaching 0 to 40 km/h in under 2.6 seconds and 0 to 60 km/h in less than 4.5 seconds. With a claimed range of 140 km on a single charge, real-world conditions suggest around 120 km of practical usage.

The TVS X is a technological marvel with an array of features, but its premium price tag raises questions about its overall value. Competitors with similar capabilities offer a more budget-friendly alternative. For tech-savvy enthusiasts seeking a premium electric scooter, the TVS X is a tempting choice. However, those prioritizing practicality and cost-effectiveness may find TVS’s iQube to be a more suitable option. Stay tuned for further updates as we delve deeper into the TVS X’s performance and capabilities.
