TVS Radeon 125cc that was showcased at the 2012 Auto Expo in Delhi is scheduled to be launched in the month of September . The company has not revealed much details about the bike but it is evident that the bike is already doing test runs in Tamil Nadu.
The TVS Radeon is built on a downtube tubular steel frame with a box-section swingarm,looks like a typical TVS motorcycle looks that features 6-spoke alloy wheels, nicely stitched seat and a flush-mounted rear tail light. TVS has given black detailing treatment1 with the wheels, forks, swingarm, chain cover and engine all finished in black.
The Radeon will get electric start and petal disc brakes at the front and the front suspension is the conventional hydraulic telescopic forks, while the rear uses twin shock absorbers with multi-rated, dual-spring technology.
The TVS Radeon is powered by a 125cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine and is believed to offer decent power and economy in the likes of Star City or Jive that will be a direct rival to the yet to be launched Discover 125 ST wherein the commuter segment will see a healthy fight like the Pulsar 150 against TVS Apache few years ago .
TVS Radeon is expected to be priced at Rs.55,000(Ex-Showroom) but is still not sure that TVS will sell the Flame alongside the Rageon which is unlikely since Flame is not doing good in terms of sales when compared to its competitors.
