TVS Victor BS6 is expected to launch in India in December 2020 in the expected price range of ₹ 56,000 to ₹ 60,000. Currently available bikes which are similar to Victor BS6 are Hero Splendor Plus, TVS Sport & TVS Radeon.
TVS revived the Victor brand after a gap of more than eight years and has positioned the motorcycle above the Star City Plus in their line-up. The new Victor features a host of cosmetic and technological updates. But the BS6 variant is likely to come with revised styling and performance along with some new features.
The current variant gets a curvy headlamp and small visor to cover the instrument cluster. The seating position has been optimised for comfort and the soft single-piece seat also helps this cause over a short distance. The instrument cluster gets a neat analogue tachometer and a digital display, which integrates the speedometer, fuel gauge and the odometer. The motorcycle features minimalistic graphics which will likely appeal to people of all age groups.
Powering the Victor is an 110cc single-cylinder engine but for 20202 mode, expect the power delivery to go slightly down. The current variant delivers 9bhp and 9Nm of torque through a four-speed transmission. The Victor used to return fuel efficiency figure of 59.8kmpl in average city conditions. The bike rides on telescopic forks at the front and adjustable dual springs in the rear. Braking is taken care of by drum brakes at both ends with an option of a disc for the front. Both variants are equipped with SBT (Synchronised Braking Technology).
In the 110cc commuter market, the Victor locks horns with the Hero Passion Pro 110, Bajaj Discover 110 and the Honda Livo and CB Shine models. The BS6 variant will be launched in the next few weeks.
