If you are a regular on social media, then you must have noticed that there have been some murmurs about an upcoming launch by TVS where some people even predicted a 125 cc Fiero and some talked about the impending launch of an all new scooter. And by the time you get to read this, chances are that you’ve already figured out what that new launch by TVS is – it is the TVS Raider, an all new 125 cc motorcycle which we got to ride a couple of days ago at their Hosur plant. And here’s all that we know about this new offering from TVS so far:
Just one look at the motorcycle and you’d figure out as to what its target audience is : the youth, or GenZ as TVS prefers to call them. It is targeted at the younger riders who are probably looking for their first motorcycle but want more than what their dad’s 100 cc typical commuter can offer. They want a bit more style, a bit more aggression, and a bit more features without compromising on fuel efficiency and without burning a big hole in their pocket. In other words, the target market for the Raider is similar to that of the TVS Ntorq. And in fact, that is what we found the Raider to be, the motorcycle version of the TVS Ntorq; although the Ntorq feels sportier & peppier among the two.
