TVS had displayed the first look of the TVS Radeon 125 cc bike at the 2012 Auto Expo in Delhi. The company, however, did not give any much details regarding this 125 cc bike. Recently the Radeon was seen undergoing some tests in the Southern part of the country. At present, TVS sells Flame 125 in the market, which has a reasonable popularity. However, with competitors like Bajaj, introducing the Discover 125 ST, TVS was required to make some quick changes in order to maintain its grip in the market. In this attempt, the company has decided to introduce the Radeon 125 in the Indian market by the end of of September. There is still no confirmation about the future of Flame after the introduction of Radeon, but it is believed that the company will keep on selling both the bikes simultaneously.
The styling of the TVS Radeon is inspired from the StarCity. The bike has 6 spoke alloy wheels, a comfortable seat and a flush mounted back light. Further, TVS has provided a black finishing to the wheels, forks, swingarm, chain cover and the engine. The bike has a single downtube tubular steel frame with a box section swingarm. The suspension at the front has the usual hydraulic telescopic forks and the back portion has double shock absorbers having dual spring technology.
