2016 TVS Victor Disc Long Term Review 3

The original Victor was launched in 2001 and was the forerunner for the south Indian manufacturer. Simply put, the Victor is to TVS what the Splendor is to Hero, the people’s champion. It has been a couple of months now with this new TVS and it is, for the most part, proving to be a ‘Victor’.

For an 110cc motorcycle, the Victor with its three-valve head and the oversquare engine layout makes appreciable power and torque. The motorcycle has a power figure of 9.5bhp and 9.4Nm of torque which is marginally more than its competition on paper but quite significant on the road. Furthermore, the quick revving nature along with the lack of stress at high revs can put one in disbelief that this motorcycle is not a 125cc.

Do not let all the power talk convince you into thinking this motorcycle will let you cruise on the highway. It will, but at its own pace. The cruising sweet spot for this motorcycle is between the 60kmph – 70kmph range, anything beyond that and the vibes start to kick in. During my daily commute I face about 8kms of a proper highway section. During which, I stick to the left most part of the highway and glide between the sweet spot.

Now to the gearbox, the noisy shifts along with the crude shift feel can really put one off. The gem of an 110cc engine would pair brilliantly well with a sweet shifting five-speed box. If that’s asking for too much, a better four-speed box would also do the trick. If that’s not all, there is a significant amount of heat that comes off the gearbox area, while riding the motorcycle in its territory - the traffic, for a period above half an hour, it almost gets uncomfortable.

Despite its few shortcomings, the Victor is one of the best 110cc motorcycles out there and proving so with its increasing sales numbers. In the next and the final instalment of the Long Term Review for the Victor we will bid farewell to the motorcycle while talking about its ergonomics and ride.
