After reviving the Victor brand, TVS has been consistently upgrading the bike with small updates. As now the BS6 norms have come into play, the bike will be undergoing the BS6 upgrade. Its the only bike in the TVS lineup that’s is still in BS4 format but that won’t be for long. The bike is soon to launch with a BS6 engine. The BS6 TVS Victor will have some changes when compared to BS4 model, what are those? Let’s find it out.
The first significant change will be with its engine. The BS6 TVS Victor will retain the same engine but with the BS6 tweaks. The engine will be a 109.7 cc single-cylinder, fuel-injection, air-cooled unit. It will be producing about 8.08 bhp max power and 8.7 Nm of peak torque. The same engine is currently shared with TVS Radeon, Star City Plus and Sport. A gearbox is a four-speed unit, so nothing dramatic. But what might be dramatic will be its improved mileage.
The BS6 TVS Victor will likely have LED DRls, USB charging port, all-gear self start, side stand indicator, semi-digital instrument cluster. The instrument cluster is likely to get upgraded with new graphics. Another interesting feature of the BS6 TVS Victor will be the TVS’s GTT feature. The feature allows the bike to glide through the traffic without the use of the clutch for selected gears. Nevertheless, the features are expected to upmarket.
Talking about the hardware bits, the BS6 TVS Victor is expected to retain it from the BS4 model. The BS4 model sits on 17-inch wheels which are covered by tubeless tyres. The braking duty is done with the 130 mm drum at front and 110 mm drum at the rear. There is also an option of 240 mm disc for the front wheel. These brakes are then assisted by the combined braking system. The suspension work is done by the telescopic suspension at the front and twin adjustable hydraulic spring suspension at the rear.
The BS4 model weighs about 113 kg for the disc brake variant. The BS6 model is expected to have an increase in weight of about 3 kgs approx. The dimensions of the bike should remain the same as the BS4 model. The ground clearance of the BS4 model is at 175 mm which is good indeed.
The BS6 TVS Victor is expected to have a price hike of Rs 5-6,000 approximately over the BS4 model. For reference, the BS4 model starts at Rs 56,622 (ex-showroom) and goes up to Rs 59,602 (ex-showroom). It will be competing against other 110 cc bikes such as Bajaj Platina H Gear, Hero Passion Pro 110 and also its sibling the TVS Star City Plus.
