TVS Creon: Our riding experience
Ok, hands up regarding the ride quality on the streets, as we got permission to ride it in the circuit only. However, that was enough to understand this electric scooter’s class and capabilities for us. First of all, while riding TVS Creon, you don’t actually feel that you are riding! You feel like floating on the road, and it’s a tremendous experience! This scooter is powerful, fully capable of climbing minor inclines with two guys riding.
Twisting and turning the scooter is easy, and that’s exactly the rider needs to deal with the Indian street chaos! Handling gets full marks here, and TVS isn’t letting to complain regarding the braking system either. Not just that, but the acceleration is also appreciation.
However, one point where we felt a bit less confident was accepting sharp turns at high speed. You actually can’t tilt this electric scooter with full confidence. However, we might be wrong also because we didn’t try to tilt the scooter in our test drive to know the extent, as we were afraid! They strictly ordered us not to try anything that might cause damage to this model!
