It’s only fitting that the first 110 cc scooter to reach the highest motorable road is a Scooty Zest 110, and it was ridden there by Anam Hashim, a 21 year old Scooty Zest owner. We are happy that this feat has found place in the India Book of Records. To commemorate this historic ride, we are happy to launch the Himalayan Highs special edition. We continue to enhance the ride experience for the new age Indian woman.”
Anam Hashim said, “Riding is my passion, I have always enjoyed trying new challenges. I was thrilled to ride TVS Scooty Zest 110 to Khardung La. The engine did not run out of breath, even beyond 10,000 feet and the ride quality was top-notch throughout the long hours of riding. Despite of all the dangerous turns, awful weather and vertigo inducing heights, TVS Scooty Zest 110 cc proved to be a super-reliable and dependable partner. Setting this record is truly an epic feeling.”
