Highlights of TVS Radeon

Specification of TVS Radeon

Powering TVS Radeon is a 110cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine mated to a four-speed gearbox that churns out a peak power of 8.08bhp @ 7,350 rpm and a maximum torque of 8.7Nm @ 4,500 rpm.

While the power output in the TVS Radeon BS6 has decreased by 0.21PS, the maximum torque has remained unchanged. It arrives 500 rpm earlier.

The commuter bike sprints from 0-60 Kmph in about 8.4 seconds and can achieve a top speed of 95 Kmph.

The company claims the ARAI-tested fuel efficiency is 75-77 Kmpl, but the actual mileage of TVS Radeon is 69.3 Kmpl.

The inclusion of the fuel injection technology has enhanced the mileage by 15 per cent. Its 10-litre fuel tank capacity enables it to travel around 670-693 km on a full tank.

The bike gets built on a single-cradle tubular frame linked to a pair of telescopic oil damped forks at the front and five-step adjustable hydraulic shockers at the rear.

The braking duties are performed by drum brakes at both front and back (but only the celebratory special edition gets a disc brake at the front) and assisted by TVS’ Synchronized Braking Technology.

Design of TVS Radeon

The bike features a rectangular halogen headlamp, which also has LED daytime running lights for better visibility.

The bike gets ample chrome fittings, which borders around the headlight in a rectangular shape. Above it sits the TVS logo in chrome.

A pair of side indicator lights get attached between the headlamp and a pair of rearview mirrors.

The bike features an analogue instrument cluster with a speedometer, odometer, and fuel gauge—the handles get equipped with switches for the headlight, taillight, side indicators and more.

The 10-litre fuel tank slopes towards the seat, which is flat and long and has a rear grab rail-cum-carrier at its end. Just below it, the bike gets fitted with a tail lamp and indicator lights.

The chrome exhaust gives the bike a retro look. Running the bike is a pair of 18″ blacked-out alloy wheels that look contrastingly modern compared to the bike’s overall styling.

The bike incorporates a seat height of 780 mm, making it accessible to a wide range of riders of varying sizes. The footrests and rear footpegs keep the feet of both the rider and the pillion.

The bike is 1,080mm tall, 705mm wide, and 2,025mm long. It has a wheelbase of 1,265mm and a ground clearance of 180mm. Handling the bike is quite effortless, and it steers and stabilises efficiently in all traffic conditions.

Colour Options and Variants Of TVS Radeon

It comes in three variants:

  • Radeon Drum – BS-VI

Features of TVS Radeon

Daytime running lights: The lights get equipped to run during the day to enhance visibility.

Side indicators: The front side indicators get fitted adjacent to the halogen headlamp, while the rear side indicators get between the rear number plate.

Taillight: The tail lamp is below the grab rail and lights up when the brakes get used.

Analogue instrument console: The instrument cluster consists of an analogue speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, clock and more.

Tank grips: The side of the 10-litre fuel tank is fitted with tank grips to protect it from scratches.

Aluminium grab rail-cum-carrier: The grab rail-cum-carrier is aluminium and allows the pillion rider to hold on to it while travelling on rough roads.

Synchronised Braking Technology: TVS’ Synchronized Braking Technology, the company’s term for the combined braking system, slows both wheels simultaneously for better control and grip.

Blacked-out alloy wheels: The motorcycle features all blacked-out 18-inch alloy wheels, making the bike a modern and sporty look.

Engine start/stop switch: The start/stop button is helpful in heavy traffic, or logjams, or while waiting at a traffic signal as it can save fuel by starting or stopping the motor at the right time.

Pass switch: This switch allows riders to give a signal before overtaking any vehicle in front of them.

USB mobile charger: The USB mobile charger enables riders to charge their mobile phones while moving.

Expert Reviews for TVS Radeon

  • At first glance, Radeon looks similar to Hero Splendor, but when examined closely, one gets to know that it has premium features and good specifications. Though the bike’s ergonomics are comfortable and sound, it could have worked more on the design and exteriors.

  • The seat height of 780 mm makes it one of the most accessible bikes available in the Indian market. The flat and premium padded seat gives a comfortable riding stance and makes for comfortable rides.

  • When it comes to performance, the motorcycle’s 110cc fuel-injected engine delivers a decent power of 8.08bhp @ 7,350 rpm and a torque of 8.7Nm @ 4,500rpm and 15% more mileage compared to the BS-IV model.

  • The four-speed gearbox is smooth, and so is the accelerator. Drum brakes perform the braking duties, but only the top variant comes equipped with a disc brake at the front. The Synchronized Braking Technology assists the braking performance.

  • The bike gets built on a single-cradle tubular frame, and the suspension system comprises telescopic forks and hydraulic shock absorbers.
