TVS Victor & Draken 250 might be next two products from TVS Motors
To build extra strong footing in the country, TVS, the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer is all set to launch two new products this year. It will include the relaunch of the popular TVS Victor along with a premium bike that might based on Draken 250cc Concept .
Having the TVS Victor motorcycle discontinued, the company’s Chairman and Managing Director, Venu Srinivasan last year shared words about the reintroduction of their TVS Victor. As we all know that last year, the TVS motor entered into the partnership with the BMW Motorrad during April 2013 with plans to manufacturer motorcycles below 500cc in the Indian market.
Moreover, the upcoming highly powered premium bike will be the first product from the JV between TVS-BMW. This product is expected to be in the ready state to roll off by the second half of the 2015. As per the sources, the work has already begun and is under progress. It might based on Draken 250cc street bike concept shown at Auto Expo 2014
Press Release on TVS Draken :
Concept: TVS Draken-X21
Tagged by TVS Motor Company’s R&D team as a thorough bred naked bike with, aggression and attitude, TVS Draken–X21 features a short-stroke, race inspired liquid cooled 250cc single cylinder engine, mounted on an exposed aluminium trellis frame. The bike has been specifically designed for urban youth, who look for a high performance motorcycle with raw street brawl character and which is packed with technology. TVS Draken- X21 is also an indicator of what to expect from the next generation Apache RTRs, in terms of form and emotion. The futuristic and fresh design of the Draken-X21 which is all about thematic evolution, maintains a progressive link to the established Apache RTR design language. Emphasis is on the visual mass around the power train. The scoops on the tank which give the rider an aerodynamic advantage while on the move make the bike look racy even when standing still.
An exciting list of visible elements like structural sub-frame, compact headlamp, short sharp tail, aggressive race ergonomics with technological enhancements like full LED headlamp with daytime running lights, Anti-lock Braking System (ABS), full function active matrix digital speedometer, offset Mono-shock suspension along with reversed free flow sport exhaust come together in a vivid harmony to make TVS DRAKEN-X21 one manic beast of a machine.
Along with this, the company is also planning to upgrade its existing products in its lineup to further offer facelift models and strengthen its portfolio in the country. With the TVS plans, we hope the Indian two-wheeler enthusiasts will get the advantage to try hands on different and exiting models in the making.
It is also expected in order to beat the tough competition, the other two-wheeler manufacturers might also introduce premium bikes and refreshed models from their lineup. Lets wait and watch to see what the year 2015 is going to bring in everyone’s kitty.
