“Himalayan Highs Season 1, saw Anam’s amazing journey on her TVS Scooty Zest 110, all the way to the world’s highest motorable road. We got an overwhelming response, with kudos flowing in to appreciate the capabilities of both rider and the machine. There were queries from people wishing to recreate a similar ride experience. They wanted the high of riding the TVS Scooty Zest 110 on the most difficult terrain; setting record and feel Anam’s zeal to explore the unknown. It was this sentiment that led to Himalayan High Season 2: wherein ten riders would create history on the TVS Scooty Zest 110 and have a life-altering experience. Scooty exhorts to “LIVE FULL! Be YOU!” and we seek to provide this opportunity to 10 dynamic riders,” said Mr. Aniruddha Haldar, VP Marketing, TVS Motor Company.
