New on-off road commuter could compete with the Passion Pro TR.
The TVS Max 125, available in Indonesia, was spotted on test in India recently by Autocar India. The on-off road commuter motorcycle could be introduced in the company's Indian commuter portfolio.
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.
Power for the motorcycle comes from the same engine used by the Phoenix. The engine in question is a single-cylinder, air-cooled, 124.5 cc four-stroke motor producing 11 PS (10.84 bhp) at 8,000 rpm and 10.8 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The transmission would be a 4-speed unit.
The Max 125 adventure motorcycle would find competition in the Hero Passion Pro TR, even though the Hero uses a smaller 100 cc engine.
Expected Price (if launched): INR 55,000 - 60,000 ex-Showroom
