In Indonesia, the motorcycle is powered by the 125 cc engine used by the Phoenix.

The TVS Max 125 features a long travel telescopic suspension at the front and a longer pair of shock absorbers at the rear. Other noteworthy features seen on the bike include a larger rim at the front, a petal-rotor equipped front disc brake, alloy foot rests and an exposed chain, not to mention the off-road friendly front bumper. It should also be mentioned that a regular variant of the Max is available in Indonesia.
