5th August, 2015: TVS Motors has decided to bring its 110cc player back into the market that once used to be the best selling motorcycle in the company’s product portfolio. Yes, the Victor is arriving soon in the country with some alterations here and there. We have heard from our sources that the bike will come in two engine capacities viz. 110cc and 125cc. Apparently, it seems that the Victor will be using the same Star City+ and Phoenix 125 engines for its operation. Though, no exact information is available at the moment, but we hope that the bike will hopefully be hitting the Indian roads in a few months from now. TVS Victor has been spotted a few days back doing final test runs on Indian roads, which further confirms that its launch may take place anytime soon. Coming to the price, the bike is expected to be put somewhere around Rs. 50,000 (ex-showroom price).
TVS Victor used to be the best selling and reliable 110cc player for the company at one point of time. The bike was discontinued from the Indian market and was eventually replaced with the current best selling TVS motorcycle, TVS Star City. The Hosur based manufacturer is all set to bring the Victor back that might help it gain some extra numbers on its overall sales report.
TVS Victor is expected to draw its power from the same 110cc mill that has been equipped in the TVS Star City+. The 110cc mill comes mated to a four-speed constant mesh transmission and uses wet multiplate clutch assembly. It generates a maximum power of 8.3bhp at 7,000rpm while cranking out a peak torque of 8.7Nm at 5,000rpm. On the other hand, its 125cc variant might come with the same engine that has been used in TVS Phoenix. The engine cLink: hurns out a net power of 10.8bhp at 8,000rpm with a maximum torque of 10.8Nm at 5,500rpm. The 125cc mill has been mated to a five speed gearbox that uses wet multiplate clutch assembly.
TVS Victor might be equipped with 2.75x17 front and 90/90x17 rear tubeless tyres with robust alloy wheels. The suspension system comprises of telescopic forks at the front and gas charged twin shock absorbers at the rear. TVS Victor slows down with the help of 130mm drum brakes fitted at both ends. The company might offer an optional or standard front disc brake with the bike to further refine its braking.
Coming to the aesthetic values, the front fascia receives a sharp and edgy headlamp that might come integrated with twin pilot lamps. A neatly chiseled fuel tank offers a good riding position to the rider and looks decent as well. The bike features a longer and well-cushioned seat to provide 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 expected to come near TVS Phoenix or the TVS Star City+. The instrument console might be equipped with an analogue plus digital unit to give easy access to all the information to the rider.
