It has been a few years since TVS has launched a new motorcycle in our Indian market. They have currently bikes in the 110cc to 300cc. The only area that they miss upon in bikes is the 125cc segment. The company had registered the TVS Fiero 125 days back in December 2020. We think that this bike is very essential for TVS in the Indian bike market. This article will take you through all the reasons why TVS should introduce this motorcycle as soon as possible.
A new 125cc engine could be derived from the Apache series. TVS could also alternatively use the engine that they provide on their 125cc scooters. This engine will make about 11 to 12 bhp of power and 10 Nm of torque. Nothing fancy is expected from this 125cc engine but looking at the Radeon and the Apache we could see a very throaty exhaust note. This will a every mileage focused mill.
TVS Fiero 125 could have a normal halogen headlight as it falls into a price range that usually does not offer LED headlamps. TVS could also make sure that this vehicle gets Bluetooth but the unit might not have all the features that we see on the Apache series. We are expecting TVS to introduce the Glide Through Traffic technology on this bike too. Other features could include a digital instrument cluster.
Price and Launch
As of now, there is no launch date for this TVS motorcycle. We expect its price to be under Rs 1 lakh. This might come with completely different styling than the Apache and will look like a traditional commuter segment bikes. TVS should launch this motorcycle soon before the market gets saturated with premium commuters in the 125cc segment. Also, with the rising prices of fuel people will consider looking at smaller capacity motorcycles for their daily runs.
If we look at the current 125cc lineup we can see bikes like Honda SP 125, Bajaj Pulsar125, Honda Shine, Hero Passion Pro and Super Splendour. TVS do not have a bike that directly competes with these bikes. Also, the Bajaj Pulsar 125 attracts customers who want a slightly premium offering than the other commuter 125cc bikes. When the TVS Fiero was previously launched it was a 150cc bike that used to directly compete with the CBZ and Bajaj Pulsar 150. We think that with the new TVS Fiero 125 the company will try to recreate the same competition.
