FOL­LOW­ING THE launch of a slew of pre­mium prod­ucts like the Ntorq and Apache RR 310, TVS Mo­tor Com­pany sprung a sur­prise last month with the launch of a new com­muter mo­tor­cy­cle chris­tened Radeon. It’s aimed squarely at the likes of the Hero Splen­dor, Ba­jaj CT100 and Honda CD 110 Dream DX. The Radeon sits be­tween the Star City Plus and the Vic­tor. Nes­tled in the frame is a 109.7cc sin­gle-cylin­der en­gine, the same one that pow­ers the Star City Plus. It churns out 8.4bhp at 7,000rpm and a peak torque of 8.7Nm at 5,000rpm. Po­si­tioned as an en­try level of­fer­ing, the Radeon comes with­out disc brakes. How­ever, the drum brakes on both ends are linked with what TVS is call­ing ‘Syn­chro­nised Brak­ing Tech­nol­ogy.’ Its fuel tank ca­pac­ity is 10-litres and it has a claimed fuel-ef­fi­ciency of 69.3kmpl. The Radeon sits on a 1,265 mm long wheel­base and boats a ground clear­ance of 180mm. The com­pany claims the mo­tor­cy­cle has the largest seat in its seg­ment. In terms of fea­tures, there are 18-inch 5-spoke al­loy wheels; LED DRLS in­te­grated into the head­lamps, twin-dial IP, and rub­ber thigh pads on the fuel tank. Op­tional equip­ment in­cludes a beeper ac­com­pa­ny­ing the side stand in­di­ca­tor and a USB charg­ing point. There are four colour choices - white, beige, pur­ple and black. The mo­tor­cy­cle is priced at Rs 48,400, exshow­room Delhi and comes with a 5-year war­ranty.
