Commenting on the launch of the TVS Radeon 'Commuter of the Year' celebratory special edition, Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President (Marketing) – Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company, said:

It adds comfort and premium distinctiveness with an unwavering eye on practicality, I am sure TVS Radeon and its consumers will continue to live true to its promise of Live Strong Ride Strong (JIYO BULAND BADHO BULAND).
Mechanical specifications are identical to the standard motorcycle. This means that the TVS Radeon Special Edition draws 8.4 PS of maximum power at 7,000 rpm and a peak torque of 8.7 Nm at 5,000 rpm from a 109.7cc air-cooled, single-cylinder Dura-Life engine. TVS claims a fuel economy of 69.3 km/l which, along with the 10-litre tank, should give a range of over 690 km.
The TVS Radeon ‘Commuter of the Year’ celebratory special edition is available in Disc and Drum variants. The drum brake variant is available for INR 52,720*, while the disc brake variant retails at INR 54,820*.
The introduction of the special edition Radeon with improved styling and updated braking equipment will help the company to clock better sales during the high demand festive season. The company has also introduced the updated Jupiter Grande with the same motive. Priced at INR 59,900*, the new TVS Jupiter Grande comes with first-in-class (110 cc) Bluetooth connectivity feature that gives access to functions like incoming calls, messages, auto-reply SMS, over speeding alert and a helmet reminder.
