TVS Motor Company has announced the launch of the new Ronin in the Indian market with prices starting from Rs 1.49 lakh. The motorcycle features a neo-retro design that is complemented by modern features. Here we bring you a detailed image gallery of the new TVS Ronin.
As mentioned before, the new TVS Ronin features a neo-retro styling that brings a round headlight at the front, a round shape for the asymmetrically-mounted instrument cluster, a curvy fuel tank, a single-piece seat, and a chopped rear fender.
The headlight features an LED setup along with an integrated, T-shaped LED DRL. The sleek LED turn indicators are similar to the units on the BMW G 310 series while the rear features an LED taillight.
The asymmetrically-mounted LCD instrument cluster benefits from the TVS SmartXonnect Bluetooth module which works with a dedicated smartphone application. This feature, which is available on the top-sped version, brings access to ride analysis, last parked location, call and SMS alerts, turn-by-turn navigation, and voice assist function.
The standard technology package also includes two ABS modes (Rain and Urban), Glide Through Technology, side-stand engine inhibitor, and slipper clutch mechanism.
The motorcycle is powered by a 225.9cc, single-cylinder, air/oil-cooled motor. Linked to a five-speed gearbox, the engine delivers 20.1bhp at 7,750rpm and 19.93Nm of peak torque at 3,750rpm.
The hardware on the motorcycle comprises upside-down front forks, seven-step preload-adjustable rear monoshock, a 300mm disc at the front, and a 240mm rotor at the back.
The Ronin will be sold in three variants – Ronin SS, Ronin DS, and Ronin TD. The SS and DS variants get a single-channel ABS and non-adjustable levers. The TD version, on the other hand, which sits on top of the list, gets dual-channel ABS, TVS SmartXonnect Bluetooth module, and adjustable levers.
Buyers can further customise the Ronin with a bunch of optional accessories which include a tinted visor, saddle stays, rear rack, tank bag, tail bag, and saddlebags, among others.
The SS version gets a single-tone finish while the DS and TD variants feature a dual-tone and triple-tone paint theme, respectively.
