TVS plans to launch a high performance bike in the Indian market soon.
As of now no much details are there however we expect it to a be 220c or 250cc bike. According to Motorbeam TVS Motors has used a single cylinder, 4-stroke 250cc mill which produces 30bhp at 9500rpm and 2.2kgm at 8000rpm leading to a top speed of 150 kmph. The engine is mated to a 6-speed gearbox and the bike weighs just 140kgs with 16 litres of fuel capacity.
The front suspension uses telescopic forks whereas at the rear monoshock rectangular swingarm does the job. The front gets 290mm discs and the rear discs are 220mm (ABS will be optional). Front tires are 100/80 x 17 whereas the rear tyres are 130/70 x 17 bolted onto 6-spoke alloy wheels. Price is expected to be close to Rs. 1,20,000/- and the launch will happen next month.
Considering TVS racing DNA we could expect this new bike to be more sportier, better ride handling and quicker.
With the launch of TVS high performance bike the 200+ CC bike segment is just going to heat up..
