In 2002, TVS Victor had been launched as a commuter bike and earned a lot of names in the category of best mileage bikes. Right in front of the eyes, the bike came out as the first choice of Indian bike lovers. TVS had given a tough challenge to the competitors and had forced to all its competitors to change their strategy.
However, after some time Viktor’s sales decreased and TVS started pulling back. But in 2016, TVS has made a strong come back with this popular bike with full strength. Are you excited to know about the specifications of the bike that make it special this time?
TVS Victor Design
The first impression of TVS Victor is its attractive design. Its old version looked like a boxy commuter, but this time it has been well-toned. Now this time, the bike offers an edge and sporty look. Seeing the colorful finishing on its large headlined and side panels, you can’t stop yourself to say ‘Waw’. If you compare it to 2002 Victor, then the difference in design will be obvious.
Tail lamp design
If TVS Victor compares the design of both bikes, then you can see that TVS has shifted its logo under the tail lamp in the 2017 Victor version. Such a company has done to strengthen its branding.
TVS Victor Engine and Power
Talking about the engine, the 2017 TVS Victor comes with three valve powerhouse that is borrowed from Star City Plus. The 109cc motor generates torque of 9.4 n1 meters with the power of 9.5 bhp. The powerplant is mated to a 4 speed gearbox that is responsible to transfer total power to the real wheel. These are all up shifting patterns (N-1-2-3-4). There is also a carburetor system for petrol passes.
By reading this, you will not be easy to understand the actual strength or quality of the engine. That’s why we did a 300 kilometer ride test of TVS Victor’s new bike. During this time we found that the engine works very smoothly and generates very good torque. The engine of this bike generates the highest power of 4 thousand rpm, whereas this is in the best position between 4500 and 5500 rpm.
TVS Victor Mileage
If you talk about the TVS Victor mileage and fuel efficiency, the bike offers a better mileage of 50 KM/L easily. However, TVS claimed to have mileage 76 kilometers per liter in standard conditioning. The mileage that we enlisted is based on the city and the highway ride. We have been driving through all kinds of situations during this time.
The new TVs Victor has a tachometer. It also involves the economy and power indicators so that the biker can get the best mileage. After its 4 thousand rpm, its red power indicator burns. When the bike is in the fourth gear, it burns at 5500 rpm power.
Ride & Handling
New TVS Victor’s ride quality is tremendously up to 65 kilometers per hour. Its chassis is quite tight. The bike is loaded with the front forks of telescopes and the rear mono-sock suspension that is equipped with series spring. Our Victor Ride is quite comfortable. During the ride, this bike does not disappoint even in broken roads or pits on the road. The clutch of this bike works quite smoothly.
Weak Point: One important factor that TVs needs to improve is the visibility of glass. Their width is sufficient but their length would have been enhanced to a certain extent. Only 70 percent of the scenes in the scene show a picture of a rider and a man sitting behind, while only 30 per cent of the rear vehicles are seen in the image. TVS needs to improve this also because it is a very popular bike among urban people.
TVS Victor Tires Quality
The new 2017 TVS Victor features 2.75 / 17-inch front wheel and 3.00 / 17-inch rear wheel. Both of these tires are tubeless. TVS suggests 25 psi in the next wheel and 35 PSI air in the previous wheel.
This is a very important bike in terms of security. The TVS Victor has a petal disk, which makes its breakdown quite sharp. You are always confident about Victor when you drive it anywhere in the middle town or highway. With this, the second most important feature is its comfortable seat. This is a great bike in the commuter segment motorcycle.
Overall quality of this bike is quite good. Its switches have been placed in a very precise place. Like other bikes, its plastic does not vibrate at high speed.
Its foot control has been done very well. It is an important factor. The biker does not have to work hard to carry their foot to the brake pedal or shift the gear.
Paint finishing of TVS Victor 2016 is quite tremendous. But our attention is drawn by Fuel Cap. This tank is painted until it is opened.
You might be thinking that point could be told in the slide with the riding and handling, and then why not tell! The reason is that TVS claims that a wide seat is given in 2016 Victor, which gives the most comfort to those who sit on it. Switching of the seat is also quite sharp. So far as we drive, the most comfortable seat is the same.
Victor’s new model has a near switch and the engine lights are warning lights instead of switch. TVS had claimed that its headlight was quite bright, which we found to be true.
