TVS Radeon: Ride On

TVS already has quite a few offerings in the 110cc commuter bike segment, like the Sport, Star City+ and the Victor. The new Radeon has been positioned between the Sport and Star City+. TVS are targeting the semi-urban and rural buyers with this motorcycle, given how frugal and easy-to-ride the bike is. Being typically TVS, it is bound to offer good quality as well.


Packed neatly within the frame is a 109.7cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 8.2bhp and 8.7Nm of torque. The motor is air-cooled and comes paired to a 4-speed manual transmission. TVS is getting ready for a launch of the BSVI-compliant engine soon.


The Radeon doesn’t look particularly sporty or flashy. It’s a very simple design and is aimed at buyers who are looking for practicality more than anything. That fuel tank and square-like tail light look very identical to the Hero Honda Splendor’s. It also gets a black padding on the tank, a brown saddle and a chrome bezel on the headlamp. Also notice the gold finish on the engine casing. There’s a twin-pod analogue instrument console that can be seen; it consists of the odometer, speedometer and fuel guage. The fit and finish, as you’d expect, is excellent and the quality of switchgear is impressive too. In terms of dimensions, the Radeon is 2006mm in length, 705mm in width and 1070mm in height. Power delivery is good for as long as you’re in the mid-range. It manages to reach a top speed of 100kph but feels strained after that. The throttle too, is quite responsive. Vibrations are hardly felt, thanks to the smooth engine. The Radeon has a nice, lumpy exhaust note. At 112kgs, the bike feels light and nimble too. The ground clearance, on the other hand, is 180mm, while the bike has a wheelbase of 1265mm and a seat height of 800mm.


The TVS Radeon has a fuel tank capacity of 10 litres. In terms of mileage, the TVS Radeon is capable of returning 69.3kmpl by ARAI, in BSIV guise.

Mechanical Parts

Ergonomically, the Radeon is similar to other commuter bikes in the same segment. The high-set handlebars are within reach and the seating is nice and upright. It is also well cushioned and wide too. There’s even a grab-handle for the pillion, and the foot pegs for the pillion are positioned very well. The suspension setup is on the firm side, for this type of bike will tend to have to carry quite a bit of luggage. Riding through traffic is a boon and the bike stays planted at high speeds. It gets 18-inch alloy wheels are shod with Ceat rubber that provide good grip. At the front, the bike rides on telescopic oil-damped suspension, while the rear gets a five-step adjustable hydraulic shock-absorber. As far as the chassis is concerned, it is built around a single cradle tubular frame. The Radeon runs on 2.75×18 tyres at the front and 3.00×18 tyres at the rear. Retardation duties are taken care of by disc brakes at the front and drum brakes at the rear.


Features include front disc brakes, thigh pad on tank, tank cushion, premium seat, chrome carburetor cover, metallic brake levers, chrome rear view mirrors, chrome bezel headlamp with DRL, 18-inch alloy wheels, grab handle with carrier, USB charging spot and side stand indicator with beeper.


The TVS Radeon, as of early 2020, is sold in eight shades: Metal Black, Golden Beige, Volcano Red, Chome-Black, Pearl White, Royal Purple, Titanium Grey and Chrome Brown.
