TVS Raider Top-spec launch in Metaverse will be the first announcement of its own through TVS proprietary platform – Motoverse…
TVS Motor have hinted at the launch of a Bluetooth-capable top-spec Raider motorcycle for October 19.
It was just over a year that TVS first introduced a very capable Raider motorcycle in the 125 cc segment, sporting an attractive & standout design and segment-first LCD instrumentation. It was then that the company also announced that they will soon be launching a top-spec Raider in the market as well.
Now, they have hinted that they will be launching the long pending top-spec Raider in a new way. They will be the first motorcycle manufacturer in India to launch a product in the Metaverse, through their own platform – Motoverse. And many more products will be introduced through the new Motoverse platform in the future.
The new top-spec TVS Raider is expected to be equipped with a new 5” TFT instrumentation, instead of the standard negative LCD instrumentation on the standard model. This new TFT display could be capable of Bluetooth connectivity, turn-by-turn navigation, music controls, SMS/Call notifications & control and social media notifications as well.
It is also hinted that the new top-spec Raider will continue with the segment-first riding modes – Eco & Power mode. Furthermore, the new instrumentation will also facilitate new features like real-time mileage and service & low battery indicators.
Other than the new tech-based capabilities, the rest of the bike is expected to remain the same.
The top-spec TVS Raider will be powered by the 124.8 cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which puts out 11.4 HP and 11.2 Nm of torque – the same as the current standard model. This engine is connected to a 5-speed transmission system. Suspension, too, will be the same – telescopic fork up front and a monoshock at the rear.
Currently, the Raider 125 is being offered by TVS for Rs. 85,973/- for the drum variant and Rs. 93,489/- for the disc variant. It is safe to expect the new model to cost more than the current disc variant. TVS has done something similar in the past, with the NTorq 125 also being offered in a tech-laden XT trim, which is the most expensive of the lot.
