TVS SCOOTY PEP+/STREAK
What's it about?
Aimed purely at girls, the TVS Scooty Pep+ has been around for a long time. You thought the polka dotted one was outrageous? The new one comes with flowers... Anyway, the Scooty Pep+ is available in an incredible 99 shades, starting from 'Tendence Green' (yuck!) to 'Rosso Shiraz' (err) going up to 'Rouge Babylone' (just stop it already!). That said, the Pep+ is the only scooter in the country (or maybe even in the world) to offer cleverly mounted trainer wheels – indispensable to the thousands of lasses fresh out of high school. The Streak is based on the same platform and has specs identical to the Pep+ but is targeted at the less girly, er, girls. It's priced slightly above the Pep+ and boasts an external fuel-filler cap and a mobile charger (of course...) as standard.
