The new 2-wheeler could be an electric scooter or a retro motorcycle
Along with the Raider, Fiero and Zeppelin R, TVS have trademarked the Retron name as well. While the first three appear earmarked for an adventure, cruiser and sporty naked motorcycle, the Retron could be anything. Here are our three guesses:
A retro eScooter
TVS already has a futuristic looking electric scooter in the form of the iQube. It could be looking at launching a retro-styled electric scooter to rival the Bajaj Chetak. Besides retro styling, the Retron electric scooter could offer fewer features to keep the price low.
A retro styled Apache
TVS already has a good platform in the form of the Apache RTR 160 4V. It could offer the motorcycle in a retro styled bodywork which would help it compete against the upcoming retro Yamaha XSR155. The new motorcycle could feature a round headlamp and tail lamp, a flatter seat and retro fuel tank.
A larger Radeon
TVS has 3 motorcycles in the 110cc category but none in the 125cc segment. The Retron could be a new 125cc motorcycle with styling and features similar to the Radeon. The new motorcycle could be TVS’s answer to the Bajaj Discover 125 and Hero Glamour.
