Kinetic 4S

Kinetic 4S
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.

Control and Comfort
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.

The four-stroke, air-cooled, single cylinder 113.5cc engine of the 4S churns out 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 variomatic (gearless) transmission and dual mode ignition timing. The transmission is for sudden bursts of power while the ignition timing maximises fuel efficiency. Spaco FSY-18, Micarb VME18 carburettor handles things well. The Kinetic 4S's improved fuel-efficiency enables it return an impressive mileage of 55 kpl. Its refined and technologically advanced engine is quite fuel-efficient.
