The buying experience was good .The salesmen and the manager at the showroom were quite helpful and assisted me with everything that i asked not only about the vehicle that i bought but also regarding other vehicles .I am referring to this because the salesmen at other showrooms especially in honda and hero are a bit snobbish in their approach.They are delusional that they have no competition.The public will buy their product.Well....That's the case in tier 2 and tier 3 cities atleast. The formalities were completed in quickly and was detailed as well.
Speaking of the riding experience,well i have owned this vehicle since 2012.The still rides like new.I don't know what the 'body balance technology' is ...But i have reason to believe that it has to do something with mass centralisation and it does work upto some extent.The vehicle is more manoeuvrable when compared to a bulky looking activa. One can cut through traffic more easily than other scooters of the same segment.And the best part is the suspension.Telescopic suspension at the front..Was the most important reason for me to choose the wego over the honda dio.Back in 2012 ,there were only a few scooters that provided telescopic suspension at the front.Honda still doesn't provide it in its activa 4g or the dio. They are not at all a value for money proposition.Steel body parts used in the vehicle makes it more robust.
Looks...Well...Looks are the only thing which is somewhat subjective when it comes to tvs wego.U won't turn heads with this one neither this is attention seeking.The only reason why i am rating this vehicle 4 out of 5 is the looks.The performance is at par with the competition.The vehicle doesn't loose breath even if the rider is cruising at 80kmph,this might sound a little underrated on paper but i am being genuine here providing the readers with real figures.I had a hero pleasure earlier and it used to go out of breath while at 60 with a pillion of course.
Until now the only cost i have encountered while owning this vehicle is the front break pads.I change it every alternate year after the monsoons.They start squeaking if i don't.Service cost is low but i have reason to believe that in the next 6 months time i will have to change its battery,it's been 5 years now that i haven't changed it .Do keep in mind that the body is made of metal so minor dents could be fixed easily when compared to plastic panels.While buying the vehicle,i installed a steel cage on it so it stays protected anyway.The mileage is stays good provided that the owner keeps the vehicle properly serviced.I get a mileage of 50-53 in city but when i am careless and skip servicing for ages,the mileage has evenly responded....I got it as bad as 28kmpl
Robust built.The panels and parts don't wear off or go loose .
Good telescopic suspension ....One can encounter potholes and undulations on the roads with ease without breaking a bone
External fuel lid....The rider won't have to get down open up the seats to fill up fuel.
Alloy wheels..The scooter has alloy wheels as opposed to cast wheels .Alloy wheels are rust free and are much stronger when compared to cast wheels.Making them easy to maintain.
Easily manoeuvrable ...Cutting through traffic on this one is easy
Value for money..Overall it is a good value for money proposition.The owner won't have second thoughts about his buying decision if he/she decides to go for this bike
Breaking...Sync breaking system on the newer models work as cbs like that on honda scooters
The cons are really trifles instead because overall as a package the scooter is still the best one in my books...But there are some cons ..
Looks----tvs really need to work on the looks on this one.The decals and the digital console on newer models does help but still this scooter is in desperate need of a face-lift.
Separate key slots for opening up the fuel lid the boot and the handle lock...Tvs should use a single lock mechanism ....Like it's there on the suzuki access and the new maestro edge...So that it makes the usability more effective
To conclude...If you go with this vehicle,you won't go wrong.This scooter brought with itself a number of features which were first for its segment...And yes ..Tvs continues to do so.
