A brand new 220 cc cruiser concept will be revealed at the Auto Expo 2018. Called the TVS Zeppelin, the bike is a performance-oriented machine in the age of wanderlust filled ride goals. The TVS Zeppelin is a performance cruiser motorcycle, sporting a raw metal look and feel. At the heart is a 220cc engine coupled with a one-of- its kind, TVS patented – Integrated Starter Generator (ISG). ISG comes with an e-boost option, which starts the motorcycle faster by giving it an augmented boost. This empowers the motorcycle with unmatched performance and best-in-class fuel efficiency.
A 1200W regenerative assist motor with 48V Li-ION battery further adds to the powerful performance. Targeted at the new-age long distance rider, TVS Zeppelin is a sleek metal-bodied cruiser in a striking matte black finish with shades of rustic brown. The sleek ochre front forks, together with a compact head-lamp, make a distinct statement.
The riding posture of TVS Zeppelin is aggressive yet comfortable, having two-up seat, lowered bars and feet forward highway pegs. The handling of the motorcycle is aided by lightweight tubeless spoked alloys, 41 mm USD forks, dual-channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS) and monoshock. Its silent belt drive provides an engaging ride with a dynamic cornering capability added to a superior braking performance.
Complete with state-of-the-art features such as LED lighting system, first-in-class smart Bio-key, electronic speedometer, online connectivity, the TVS Zeppelin also hosts an integrated HD Action camera to capture your riding adventures on the go. TVS Zeppelin looks to be the new milestone in the world of cruising, where the power cruising and minimalist design blend seamlessly with cutting-edge technology.
