Key Specs of Victor
TVS Victor Highlights
The TVS Victor is the only commuter bike which has yet to receive a BS6 update. While we expected the bike to be launched in August, TVS seems to have sone different plans. Here are more details regarding the upcoming bike including its expected pricing.
The last update for the TVS 110cc commuter was the addition of Synchronized Braking Technology (SBT). The BS4 TVS Victor comes in three variants with the base model priced at Rs 56,622 and the top Premium edition variant costing Rs 59,602. This sporty commuter motorcycle features LED DRLs, tubeless tyres, high-intensity halogen headlamp, the largest seat in the segment (claimed), a semi-digital instrument console, and even hazard lamps. It is available in a total of six colour options.
The TVS Victor BS4 variant is powered by a 109.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled motor producing 9.6PS and 9.4Nm. The engine is mated to a 4-speed transmission. Underpinnings include a telescopic front fork and dual series spring rear shock absorbers. For braking, it uses either a 240mm front petal disc or a 130mm drum whereas the rear comes with a 110mm drum. The TVS Victor BS6 will rival the Honda Livo BS6, Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear and the Hero Passion Pro BS6.

Victor Expert Review
The new generation Victor brings back the nameplate which established TVS in the motorcycle segment. The motorcycle looks modern in every sense, thanks to sharp styling and contemporary features usually seen on one segment above. The 3-valve, single cylinder, 110cc engine offers one perfect blend of performance and fuel economy, while at the same time, it does has a plush feel in its ride quality.
When it comes to pricing its products in line with its competition, TVS has always remained faithful and have priced them aptly. Staying in line with its previous launches, TVS has priced the Victor very competitively at Rs 52,810 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) for the drum brake variant and Rs 54,810 (Ex-showroom, Delhi) for the disc brake variant. With these prices, the new TVS Victor is a very good value considering the amount of features and segment best engine is taken into consideration. The new Victor is now offered in blue, red, silver, grey, black red and black silver.
TVS currently is also offering a Platinum edition for a limited run, which comes in a striking black shade with premium golden graphics, golden clutch cover, chrome side cover, chrome crash guard and body colored pillion handle bar, making it look even more premium than the standard variants mentioned above. The Platinum edition is available with all the features of the disc brake variant of the standard Victor and is carrying a premium of just Rs 900 over the latter.
The TVS Victor belongs to the premium 110cc motorcycle, which has been popularized by the offerings from Honda. In the current times, the flagship 110cc commuter from Honda, the Livo, is one direct competitor to the TVS Victor, offering the similar levels of style, build quality and equipment.
Design and Features
When it comes to design, the new Victor is a far cry from the first generation model, which somewhat had a boxy and bland design. The overall design of the Victor is still functional, but it has now gone on to become something which is contemporary and attractive to look at, something which the previous generation models of the Victor lacked at.
Starting from the front, the new Victor comes with a rakish front fascia, which comes with an angular headlamp surrounded by big plastic bikini fairing, giving the motorcycle a large face, thus making us believe that it has a big bike persona to it. There is a distinct looking daytime running LED strip below the headlamp, a first-in-segment feature.
The fuel tank of the new Victor might remind you of that of the now-discontinued TVS Jive, which is substantially sizeable, making the motorcycle look stylish when viewed sideways. The side body panels and the rear tail section is all new – they do look as if the panels of the previous generation Victor have evolved nicely, with distinct angular lines. The tail lamp at the rear too looks like an evolution of that of the previous generation Victor, which looks big, but isn’t LED which we were expecting. The only grouse in the overall design are the skinny tyres, which rob of the muscular and modern appeal of the overall design.
The modernity and premium appeal of the TVS Victor continues towards the rider’s cockpit as well, with the motorcycle getting a part-digital instrument console. The Victor is only the second bike in its segment to get an analog tachometer and a digital screen for display of speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer and trip meters – the first being the Mahindra Centuro. The switchgear as well as rear view mirrors are straightly lifted off from the Apache RTR 160, which is a good thing, as it is the only motorcycle in its segment to feature an engine kill switch as well.
Engine and Performance
TVS has made a number of efforts to position the Victor as a more premium offering over the Star City+, which is why along with the overall design and set of features, it has made changes to the basic powertrain as well. The Victor comes with the same four stroke, single cylinder, air cooled, 109.7cc engine from the Star City+, though it has been extensively reworked to max out different performance numbers from the engine. With a different 3-valve setup, the engine on the Victor produces 9.6PS of power and 9.4Nm of torque, which makes the Victor the most powerful motorcycle in its segment currently.
As reflected by the performance numbers, the Victor impresses you with its strong bottom-end and midrange power, as the motorcycle pulls off nicely, making it feel as if it is a 125cc engine. The engine is mated to a 4-speed gearbox, which has long ratios best suited for making it a commuting friendly motorcycle. As far as refinement is concerned, the Victor is right there at the top of the game along with its Japanese rivals, with the vibrations too kept well under control.
Braking and Handling
The new TVS Victor gets the same suspension setup as that of the Star City+, with the telescopic hydraulic forks at the front and five step adjustable series spring coil suspension at the rear. All the previous generations of the TVS Victor have been highly regarded for their ride quality and handling, with this new Victor benchmarking all of them as well as its competitors. The 17-inch alloy wheels are here shod with skinny tyres – they do provide sufficient grip, though we would have liked TVS to shod this bike with more appropriate and broad tyres.
The Victor is armed with the best braking setup in its segment, with the motorcycle getting the first-in-class 240mm petal disc brake at the front as an option, with the more basic variant getting a 130mm drum at front. The 110mm drum brake at the rear is standard.
Safety and Features
The TVS Victor, being a family commuter, is constructed to offer a safe and reliable riding experience, which is made possible by its well-calibrated suspension assembly consisting of front telescopic fork suspension and rear 5-step adjustable spring coil units. The new models of the bike also come fitted with Auto Headlamp ON (AHO) feature, which allows a clear road visibility and reduces the rate of road accidents.
