It seems that TVS is ready to pull out the big guns from its armory. The Hosur based two-wheeler manufacturer is all set to reveal the new generation Victor commuter motorcycle and premium model from its stable and we may soon see these new products making way into the Indian market during this financial year. The once extremely successful Victor has been spied exclusively in the past by Motoroids and is expected to features a 125cc motor.
The big news, of course is a high-powered premium bike, channeled to us via an unquestionably authentic source. Unfortunately, no further details about this new bike have been uttered out as of now, so we cannot do anything but speculate on the cubic capacity and power. The yummiest prospects are the sub-500cc TVS-BMW motorcycle and the Draken concept, which have been in the pipeline for some time now. We wouldn’t however, be too surprised if TVS (as on most prior occasions) disappoints us by translating this ‘high-powered motorcycle’ into an updated Apache.
The Draken concept shown at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi may well take the shape of the updated Apache. While the performance figures are still unknown, there is a good possibility that the new upcoming TVS Apache will be powered by the similar engine that was showcased on the TVS Draken concept at the 2014 Auto Expo in Delhi. The concept motorcycle was equipped with a 250cc, liquid-cooled motor which was claimed to deliver 39PS peak power at 12,000rpm and 23Nm maximum torque at 9,500rpm. TVS may tune down these performance figures for better fuel economy.
In case the new motorcycle turns out to be the first product rolling out of TVS-BMW joint venture, we are looking at relatively bigger engines and more power. The new motorcycle has been spied a few times, and is rumored to be powered by a 300cc single cylinder, liquid cooled motor reportedly capable of delivering around 40PS of power.
We will keep you posted about all the updates as an when they surface. In the meanwhile, do share your views about the upcoming TVS “high powered premium bike” with us through the comments section below.
