TVS Motors has just released a brand new TVC for the Victor 110-cc commuter motorcycle that it sells in India. The Victor competes with motorcycles like the Hero Motocorp Splendor and the Passion. The motorcycle is aimed mainly at entry-level motorcycle buyers looking for a dash of style. The TVS Victor’s 110-cc four stroke engine produces 9.46 Bhp of peak power and 9.4 Nm of peak torque. A 4-speed manual gearbox is standard and so is fuel delivery to the engine through a carburetor. While drum brakes are standard on the base variant, higher versions offer a front disc brake.
Alloy wheels, tubeless tyres and an electric start system are the various features available on the TVS Victor 110, which also gets orange and green lights on the instrument cluster indicating power and economy riding modes, respectively. The CDI ignition system on the motorcycle senses throttle position and adjusts ignition timing accordingly. A heavier throttle advances the timing and allows maximum power to be unleashed, while a light hand on the throttle retards the ignition suitably to save fuel. The rider can identify the modes by taking a look at the orange and green lights, on the instrument cluster, that indicate the modes.
Prices of the TVS Victor start from Rs. 53,295, ex-showroom Delhi. The motorcycle uses conventional telescopic front-fork suspension and gas-charged, dual shock absorbers at the rear. As more and more Indians move from public transport to two-wheelers, commuter motorcycles such as the TVS Victor 110 are top choices for intra-city transport. They’re very frugal, reliable and affordable to run and own. Most owners put such motorcycles through at least 5 years of use, before upgrading. These motorcycles are now facing stiff competition from automatic scooters, which are easier to ride but are less fuel efficient than 110-cc commuter bikes.
