TVS Radeon Engine, Transmission and other Specifications

This homegrown two-wheeler is one of the bestsellers in the 110cc category. You can check the TVS Radeon price on the autoX website.
Keeping that aside, let’s talk about the specifications of this bike. The bike manufacturer has built the TVS Radeon on a single-cradle tubular frame, which supports a 109.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine. This in-house-developed BS6 engine can pump out 8.08 bhp at 7,350 rpm and 8.7 Nm at 4,500 rpm.
Moreover, this bike has a 10-litre fuel tank capacity.

Like other BS6 engines, this bike’s petrol mill also has fuel injection technology. For your information, the central government ordered two-wheeler manufacturers to use fuel injection technology when producing BS6 engines.
This technology offers a clean fuel supply system, which makes the bike more fuel efficient than the BS4 engines. Therefore, this technology also has several other advantages. Those include linear power delivery, an easy cold-start, and a better proportion of revs on hills, to name a few.

In terms of transmission, the Radeon has a four-speed manual gearbox, in which the clutch incorporates a wet multiplate. The wet multiplate clutch is lubricated, which offers better durability and smoother gear shifts at low and high speeds. It’s much better than the conventional dry multiplate clutch. At the same time, the wet multiplate clutch has also reduced the maintenance cost, unlike the dry multiplate clutch. Gone are the days when riders’ pockets used to pinch when repairing the clutch.

Given the engine and transmission combo, the TVS Radeon’s mileage ranges between 65 km/l and 70 km/l. See there? That’s one hell of an impressive fuel economy. In addition, you can check out the Radeon on-road price.
And the good news is that these figures are as per the owners’ feedback. No wonder why they call it a mileage bike. You can easily make long journeys on this bike without worrying about running costs.
That is why you often see these “mileage” bikes on the road, especially when you travel interstate.

As for the suspension setup, the TVS Radeon has an oil-damped telescopic shock absorber at the front and a five-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorber at the rear. At this price, getting a five-step adjustable shock absorber isn’t usual. However, with this arrangement, the TVS Radeon can easily absorb the bumps from potholes. That said, it will offer a comfortable ride. Since it is a homegrown commuter bike, the suspension setup is according to Indian roads. So, the Radeon shouldn’t let you lament about the ride quality.

Apart from that, the suspension setup on this TVS bikes either works with dual drums or disc-drum brake arrangements. Except for the top-of-the-line variant, the rest come with a dual-drum brake. In addition, this budget bike also offers a single-channel ABS.

For your reference, budget bikes don’t usually have dual-disc brakes and dual-channel ABS. There is a reason why they are known as budget bikes.

However, bikes with dual disc brakes and dual-channel ABS offer impressive braking power, which reduces the chances of mishaps. In case you don’t know about ABS, its job is to provide stability and manoeuvrability during emergencies as it provides traction to the wheel(s). In cars, all wheels get ABS, while bikes either get single- or dual-channel ABS.
