Kinetic Nova 135

Kinetic Nova 135
First 135cc gearless scooter in India, Kinetic Nova 135 is a spruced-up version of the original Nova DLX. The powerful engine of the Nova 135 suits customers who want more power and quicker pick-up. With its powerful motor, good storage space and automatic convenience, the Nova 135 is always a strong contender for purchase.

Looks and Styling
Engineers have worked hared to give Nova 135 stylish look. The two wheeler comes in several attractive colors. The curves are impressive and headlamp design is diligently made. The vehicle has been given fine final touch and it smoothly cruises on the road.

Control and Comfort
The Nova 135 features a throttle sensor that gives out an audible signal every time the rider is crossing into the uneconomical (low mileage) range, in addition to a display in the instrument panel that lights up a down or up arrow. The scooter is equipped with bigger 130mm drum brakes at the front to deal with the greater engine power. Nova 135 scores well on utility front, featuring electric start, gearless variomatic transmission, a standard glove box, huge underseat storage that lights up automatically at night, puncture resistant tyres, and a mobile charge point. These features come quite handy for any user. One big plus is that it has sufficient boot space. It means that one can take on it medium-sized travel bags, office files or household groceries. The wide and well-padded seat is comfy.

The vehicle has its downside too. The riders have to bend a little forward to reach the handlebars. Tall riders could find the handlebars rotating too close to their knees on slow speed sharp turns. The vehicle becomes uncomfortable while dealing with potholes.

The bike has single cylinder 135 cc, 4 stroke air-cooled engine that delivers maximum power of 8.5 bhp @ 6500 rpm and maximum torque of 10 Nm @ 4500 rpm. The low torque of the engine ensures smoother, quicker acceleration and goes on to score well even in terms of mileage.
