After the miserable failure of Flame 125, TVS Motors decided to come up with something competing in the 125cc motorcycle segment. The offering is christened as TVS Phoenix 125 which succeeded pretty well in stabilising the sales records of the company in such category.

The suspension duties are carried out impressively by telescopic forks at the front and gas charged shock absorbers (Monotube Inverted Gas-MIG) at the rear. TVS Phoenix 125 comes to a standstill with the help of 130mm drum brakes fitted at both ends. The manufacturer offers an optional 240mm front disc brake as well for a more responsive and powerful braking.
The front fascia has a sharp headlamp integrated with twin pilot lamps that look majestic in the dark. A neatly designed fuel tank and a longer well-cushioned seat provides comfort to the rider and pillion. The rear end of the bike gets a stylish tail lamp unit and a body coloured grab rail that looks stunning. The overall body dimensions of the bike are 1,985mm x 740mm x 1,065mm (LxWxH) that give it a respectable stance in public. With a wheelbase and minimum ground clearance of 1,265mm and 165mm respectively, the bike performs well in the areas of handling and stability.
TVS Phoenix 125 comes with a 12 liter fuel tank that enables the rider accomplish long distance commutes with ease. The instrument cluster of the bike has a completely digital interface that comprises of a speedometer, tachometer, fuel gauge, odometer and trip meter with a low battery and service reminder indicator. Other astonishing features of the bike include a vehicle locator key and hazard lamps that prove helpful in case of adverse situations.
TVS Phoenix 125 is a stylish motorcycle that bridges the gap well between a utility bike and a performance bike. The bike has an appealing front profile which comprises of a stylish headlamp section integrated with twin pilot lamps and clear lens turning blinkers. A neatly designed fuel tank looks impressive with the fuel tank shrouds. The bike has a long and comfortable, compound padded seat that offers a hassle-free ride. Moving towards the rear, the bike has a stylish tail lamp section that looks munificent with the body coloured grab rail and clear lens blinkers. With body dimensions of 1,985mm x 740mm x 1,065mm (LxWxH) and a wheelbase of 1,265mm, TVS Phoenix handles and steers quite well in city traffic as well as long stretched patches. The bike has a minimum ground clearance of 165mm and comes with a fuel tank of 12 liter capacity.

Engine And Performance
TVS Phoenix is propelled by a 124.53cc, air-cooled, four-stroke mill that comes mated to a four-speed constant mesh transmission system using wet multiplate clutch assembly. The engine develops a supreme power of 10.9bhp at 8,000rpm with a maximum torque of 10.8Nm at 5,500rpm. The refined 125cc powerplant has a bore x stroke ratio of 57mm x 48.8mm with a compression ratio of 9.4:1. With this motor, the bike delivers an all-round superior performance with a decent mileage of 67kmpl as claimed by the company.
Braking And Handling
The bike moves on grippy 2.75x17 front and 90/90x17 rear tubeless tyres with black alloy wheels. The manufacturer has installed 130mm drum brakes at both ends to offer superior braking characteristic to the bike. Moreover, a 240mm rotor pedal disc brake is available as an option that further enhances the stopping power of the vehicle. The suspension package includes telescopic forks at the front and five-step adjustable, Monotube Inverted Gas (MIG) charged shock absorbers at the rear.
The bike comes with a Vehicle Locator Key that blinks the light of the vehicle with the press of a button. This proves helpful in finding the bike in dark condition or a house full parking lot. The tubeless tyres prove convenient in case of a puncture by not losing on air pressure suddenly, thereby giving extra time to the rider to reach his destination. A powerful 12V-35/35W DC headlight accompanied by twin pilot lamps brightens up the road well in dark ensuring good visibility. Moreover, the bike gets a pair of hazard lamps as well that prevents any mishap in undesirable conditions such as fog, rain, mist, etc.

TVS Phoenix Review
Iam riding by Phoenix 125 for past one year. Mileage is excellent (Above 70). Pickup is very good. Good comfort also. Very good bike.
Tvs makes a loose impression from Bikers, Their is a huge list of failure models and very less quality service availability. Any manufacturer hits its own products by sales, service and fully consumer focused organisation, So here is no chance to attract the consumers with new product launches but you need to read consumers minds and their quires. TVS Phoenix is a good one- but-- but above points makes phoenix unsuccessful again in future and then TVS new Models arises ,arises, arises.. What a shit...!!!
