Other highlights are LED lighting system for the headlight, taillight and turn signals, muscular rear fender, machined nine-spoke alloy wheels, tubular grab handle, blackened engine area, upright handlebar positioning, centrally positioned footpegs and engine sump guard. The TVS Ronin is suspended on upside-down 41 mm big piston front forks sourced from Showa and a monoshock suspension at the rear with a gas-filled chamber.

The digital console is equipped with Bluetooth connectivity likely boasting call alerts and turn-by-turn navigation. The performance has been derived from a new 225.9 cc single-cylinder air- and oil-cooled engine. It produces a maximum power output of 20.4 PS at 7,750 rpm and 19.93 Nm of peak torque and is paired with a five-speed transmission with a slipper and assist clutch as standard

For braking duties, a single disc at the front and a single disc at the rear will be assisted by a dual-channel ABS system. It does not have any direct rivals in India as is positioned well below the Honda CB350 RS and Yezdi Scrambler. The powertrain is said to have a strong low and mid-range torque with a flat curve all along.
