TVS will be launching the 2023 Radeon soon with segment-first features, the bike might sport LED headlamps among others
TVS is gearing up to launch the 2023 Radeon soon and, this time, the commuter is going to be loaded to the brim with features. As per sources, the Hosur-based manufacturer will challenge the likes of the recently launched Hero Splendor XTEC with the upcoming bike.
TVS Radeon has become 1 of the important products for TVS as it’s consistently among the top 25 selling bikes in the country. Even last April, it was the 20th best selling bike in India with 11,630-unit sales. The commuter also achieved triple-digit YoY growth.
Hero’s recently launched Splendor XTEC has several ground-breaking features namely fully-digital instrument cluster, Bluetooth connectivity, USB charging, LED DRLs, i3S technology, bank-angle sensor, and side-stand sensor.
And, as per sources, the upcoming Radeon will improve upon these already great features for a commuter.
It is expected to feature full LED headlight (against Splendor XTEC’s LED DRLs alone), full-LCD instrument cluster, Intelligo start-stop technology, Smart Xconnect Bluetooth connectivity with call/SMS alert, real-time mileage indicator, range, and low fuel indicator.
The outgoing model already has USB charging as an option and the updated model might have it has a standard fitment.
But, as far as mechanicals go, the bike will remain the same. It’s powered by a 109 cc engine that exerts 8 HP and 8.7 Nm. The highlight of this engine is its initial grunt. The max torque is achieved as early as 4500 RPM.
Owing to these comprehensive updates, the upcoming Radeon will command a premium of over Rs. 3500/- when compared to the current model that retails from Rs. 67,316/- to Rs. 74,176/-, all prices, ex-showroom.
