Vi­sion of the fu­ture from TVS

Auto Today - - Feature -

TVS was sure out there to steal our hearts and most im­por­tantly took us by sur­prise thanks to the TVS Zep­pelin. The Zep­pelin is a per­for­mance cruiser mo­tor­cy­cle sport­ing a 220cc en­gine cou­pled with an In­te­grated Starter Gen­er­a­tor (ISG). ISG comes with an e-boost op­tion, which starts the mo­tor­cy­cle faster by giv­ing it an aug­mented boost. A 1200W re­gen­er­a­tive as­sist mo­tor with 48V Li-ION bat­tery fur­ther adds to the pow­er­ful per­for­mance. The han­dling of the mo­tor­cy­cle is aided by light­weight tube­less spoked al­loys, 41mm USD forks, dual-chan­nel Anti-Lock Brak­ing Sys­tem (ABS) and monoshocks.

It is also the first TVS to sport a belt drive. Other in­ter­est­ing fea­tures in­clude LED light­ing sys­tem, first-in-class smart Bio-key, elec­tronic speedome­ter and on­line con­nec­tiv­ity.

Zep­pelin wowed the crowd, TVS had one more trick up its sleeve. The sec­ond con­cept to steal the lime­light at the TVS stand was the Creon. An elec­tric scooter con­cept de­signed to of­fer rad­i­cal per­for­mance. The Creon fea­tures a next-gen­er­a­tion elec­tric mo­tor that propels this scooter from 0 to 60kmph in un­der 5.1 sec­onds and boasts of a range of 80km. Rapid charg­ing of 60 min­utes for 80 per cent charge is also avail­able. The Creon is pow­ered by three Li-ion bat­ter­ies ca­pa­ble of de­liv­er­ing 12kw of power. Apart from this, the Creon fea­tures fu­ture ready tech in form of smart con­nected tech­nolo­gies on board, de­vel­oped in col­lab­o­ra­tion with In­tel. The scooter con­cept is equipped with a TFT Screen which dis­plays the speedome­ter, bat­tery charge, health sta­tus, tachome­ter, trip me­ter and odome­ter.
