Here is the list of upcoming TVS bikes which are going to launch in India with BS6 engines and new features
TVS Motor Company is a Chennai based motorcycle manufacturer in India. The company produces everything from a moped to a sports bike with prices of its products ranging from Rs 30,000 to Rs 2.29 lakh ex-showroom. Recently TVS launched the race edition of its sporty 125cc scooter, the Ntorq 125. The company also launched the most expensive Jupiter in the Indian market with Bluetooth connectivity. Here we have a list of upcoming TVS bikes and scooters in India.
The first and foremost bike in the upcoming TVS bikes list is the TVS Zeppelin cruiser. There is a good demand for capable cruisers in the country. This can be said by looking at the sales of Bajaj Avenger. However, the Avenger brand is now quite old and needs a good competition. At the 2018 Auto Expo TVS Motors showcased the prototype of a hybrid cruiser, the TVS Zeppelin 220.
This motorcycle is powered by a 220cc engine developing around 21bhp and 18Nm torque. It also had a 48V hybrid system and instead of a starter motor, the Zeppelin will get an ISG (Integrated Starter Generator) system. This means only one magnetic coiled equipment will function both as starter and generator.
At present this system is used in the BS6 version of Honda Activa 125 FI. There is no concrete launch date available as of now but we are sure that TVS will likely launch it after implementation of BS6 emission norms. Expect the Zeppelin to carry a price tag of Rs 1.4 lakh to 1.5 lakh ex-showroom.
TVS Jupiter 125
No upcoming TVS bikes list is complete without the mention of Jupiter. The one scooter which is popular after Honda Activa is the TVS Jupiter. TVS sells around 50,000 Jupiter per month on an average as it is targeted at the common home users. In spite of various variants of Jupiter to choose from, there is only one 110cc engine option is available.
For those who are looking for more grunt from their scooter then goes for Honda Activa 125 or Suzuki Access 125. The TVS Ntorq 125, on the other hand, is not a practical scooter as it is mainly developed for youngsters. There are high expectations from the people that TVS will launch a 125cc variant to retain the wanting customers.
TVS Electric scooter
Next in the list of upcoming TVS bikes is Creon electric scooter. In 2018, at India’s largest automotive show, TVS showcased something really interesting and delicious. The TVS Creon electric scooter was one hell of an electric sports scooter, as there was no footboard and the area was taken by the frame and battery pack.
There was a monoshock at the rear and telescopic fork at the front. However, TVS did not launch the electric scooter even aa a completely reworked version of it as the electric vehicle market is not yet developed.
The Chennai based manufacturer has invested in the development of Ultraviolette electric bike. This Bangalore based startup will launch its first electric bike in 2020. Speaking of the TVS branded electric scooter, it is at least 2 to 3 years away.
TVS Apache BS6
Our country is moving towards the implementation of stringent BS6 emission norms. The new emission standard will enforce from 1st April 2020 and every manufacturer has to abide by the new norms. There were a couple of instances when BS6 version of TVS Apache motorcycles was spotted testing.
In a bid to clear the BS4 inventory, the company will launch the BS6 version of its entire lineup in the first quarter of 2020. The Apache BS6 will get new mechanicals and LED lightings. Along with it, expect the Apache 160 4V to come with Bluetooth connectivity feature as seen on the Apache 200 4V SmartXonnect.
TVS Off-road bike
There are chances that TVS, who is an active participant in the Dakar and other off-road rallies around the world, will launch an off-road bike in the Indian market. Looking from the success of Royal Enfield Himalayan 400 and strong sales of Hero XPulse 200 is a clue that off-road and adventure tourer bikes are gaining popularity among the motorcycle enthusiasts in the country.
What TVS can do is develop an off-road and adventure tourer frame capable of dealing with extreme conditions and plonk that 200cc 4-valve engine from the Apache. This will ensure the competitive price tag and stellar performance as the company has a decade worth of experience in the off-road field. With a price tag of around Rs 1.4 lakh, the TVS adventure tourer bike will be an instant hit.
Not only Apache range, but TVS will also launch XL 100, Sport, Start City, Radeon, Victor, Scooty Pep+, Scooty Zest 110, Jupiter, Wego as well as Ntorq 125 with BS6 engines. However, it is not sure whether the older Apache 160 and 180 will get the BS6 upgrade or not.
With this, we conclude our upcoming TVS bikes list and will update if any report comes in. If you find anything missing in the list, please do comment and tell us what you have in mind.
