Visually too, the TVS Radeon remains the same with the chrome garnish, rubber tank pads and the 3D TVS logo. The side panels get the 3D Radeon branding that allows for a premium feel, and so do the gold finish engine covers. The bike gets alloy wheels, and a brown leather-finished seat cover. The retro-looks have been appreciated on the Radeon that takes on the Bajaj Discover 110, Hero Splendor and the Honda Dream Series in the segment.
Power comes from the 109.7 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled Duralife engine tuned for 8.2 bhp at 7000 rpm and 8.7 Nm of peak torque at 5000 rpm. The motor is paired with a 4-speed gearbox. The bike is suspended by telescopic forks up front and 5-step adjutable dual shocks at the rear, while drum brakes are available on either end for braking duties. The Radeon misss out on a front disc brake even as an option. It does get combi-braking system or Synchronisd Braking Technology (SBT) in TVS speak, to comply with the new regulations.
