To be powered by a 110 cc engine; 125 cc may follow later.
A Motoroids reader has snapped a camouflaged test mule of the new Victor recently. Since last year, TVS is road testing the new bike, which is likely to be positioned above the Star City+, and is the fourth commuter model from the brand.
The Victor prototype features faux air scoops, double-rated coil springs at the rear, 5-spoke alloys, and slightly higher pillion ride position. It is stated to be powered by a 110 cc engine borrowed from Star City+ and will get the benefits of the Ecothrust technology. A 125 cc model may follow sometime into the launch.
TVS announced early last year that the Victor model will make a comeback which was replaced by TVS Flame in 2008. The company, along with a high-power premium bike (next generation of the Apache), is planning to launch the commuter in the first and second quarters of 2015-16, after the success of last year's launches utilized extra production capacity, it was reported.
