Read about Kinetic 4S scooter review. Kinetic 4S scooter is a top-end scooter in India
The Kinetic 4S is a descendant of
the iconic Kinetic scooter that became synonymous
with the Indian gearless scooter segment. The 4S
is a spruced-up version of the two-stroke Kinetic
Zoom and addresses the needs of the city commuter.
The four-stroke, air-cooled, single cylinder 113.5cc engine of the 4S develops a peak power of 7.2 bhp at 7,500 rpm and a maximum torque of 7.7 Nm at 5,000 rpm. The engine of the Kinetic 4S has been coupled with variomatic (gearless) transmission and dual mode ignition timing - one for sudden bursts of power and the other for maximising fuel efficiency.
While the styling of the 4S draws on the original design of the Zoom, efforts have been made to improve the overall appeal. Headlamps and turn indicators are finished in clear lens type glass, the speedometer design layout is new and there are styling touches for the body panels and a new set of decals.
The Kinetic 4S's improved fuel-efficiency enables it to return a healthy mileage of 55 kpl. Kinetic is also offering puncture resistant tyres as standard fitment and has even thrown in a spare `stepney' tyre as part of the package. The low center of gravity of the 4S facilitates a stable ride.
