TVS Ronin 225 Launched in India
"TVS Ronin will be the first neo-retro styled roadster, and is based on an all-new 225 cc platform."
TVS Motor Company has launched the company’s first neo-retro roadster, the new TVS Ronin.
The Ronin is built on an all-new platform, be the first model to be announced on this platform, with a 225.9 cc, single-cylinder engine and a new split dual-cradle frame.
The engine puts out 20.1 bhp at 7,750 rpm and 19.93 Nm of peak torque at 3,750 rpm, and it is tuned for a strong low and mid-range than higher-end performance. The motorcycle has a claimed top speed of 120 kmph.
The engine is mated to a five-speed gearbox and according to TVS, the Ronin is built for urban adventures, to take on rough roads, and can double up for mild off-road duties, more like a crossover, than a pure off-road ready scrambler.
The shape of the fuel tank is more retro than modern roadster, while the side panels have a hint of 1980s roadster design.
The single-piece flat seat is also more retro-styled than contemporary, and the blacked-out wheels, engine cases and alloy wheels are more 21st century than harking back to the later part of the last century, as is the case with most modern classic designs.
The motorcycle gets full-LED lighting, and TVS claims a better light throw compared to the best in segment motorcycles. The instrument console is full-digital, and features Bluetooth connectivity through the TVS SmartXonnect system, offering multiple connected features.
TVS is offering the Ronin in three ranges with the base monotone models costing INR 1.49 lakh, dual-tone models costing INR 1.56 lakh and the triple-tone model with dual-channel ABS at Rs 1.69 lakh.
