TVS Radeon Crosses 1 Lakh Sales Milestone
This feat was achieved within seven months of its launch
- The TVS Radeon is a 110cc entry-level commuter, which primarily rivals the Hero Splendor.
- Sales of the Radeon have gone up from around 11,000 units in December 2018 to close to 20,000 units last month.
- To put things into perspective, Hero retailed over 2 lakh units of the Splendor last month.
- The TVS Radeon is priced competitively at Rs 49,730 (ex-showroom Delhi).
TVS’ new entry-level commuter, the Radeon is proving to be quite a hit. The company announced that the Radeon has crossed 1 lakh sales milestone recently. This feat was achieved within seven months of its launch. However, if we had to compare numbers, the Radeon sold around 20,000 units last month. Hero, on the other hand, sold over 2 lakh units of the Splendor in the same time!
This does come as a surprise, considering the TVS Radeon undercuts the Hero Splendor+ (kick start, drum brake, alloy wheels variant) by Rs 1,130 while offering more features such as LED DRLs, electric start and more. However, Hero has a comparatively more widespread service network across the country, something which TVS hasn’t matched up to yet.
Powering the TVS Radeon is 109.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which puts out 8.4PS of power and 8.7Nm of torque, mated to a 4-speed transmission. We recently put the Radeon through a comprehensive road test, and here’s what we think about it - TVS Radeon 110: Road Test Review
