Kinetic has become synonymous with the Indian gearless scooter segment. Kinetic 4S, a spruced-up version of the two-stroke Kinetic Zoom, is a descendant of the iconic Kinetic scooter. Tailor-made for the needs of the city commuter, the scooter is equipped with all modern gadgets.
Looks and Styling
Styling of the 4S is drawn on the original design of the Zoom, but
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 stylish touches for the body panels and a
new set of decals.

The scooter comes with improved performance along with better emission,
noise or vibration. The company is also offering puncture resistant
tyres as standard fitment and has even offers a spare stepney tyre as
part of the package. The low center of gravity means that it offers a
stable ride. Its sturdy, metal body lends proper support to it. Its
cutting edge technology and new age looks combine to give more
reliability with better appearance. Riding becomes completely hassle
free due to gear less transmission and push button start. The
two-wheeler has better speedo-graphics, a powerful head-lamp as well as
front and rear drum brakes.
