The TVS Motor Company has launched the Radeon ‘Commuter of the Year’ special edition in India and it is available in two variants – drum and disc. The drum brake-equipped version is priced at Rs 52,720, while the disc variant will set you back by Rs 54,820 (both prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). This is also the first time that the TVS Radeon is being offered with a disc brake option.
Other special-edition features include chrome-finished levers, mirrors and carburettor cover, along with a petrol tank cushion and a fresh set of graphics. The motorcycle is available in two colours – Chrome Black and Chrome Brown.
The TVS Radeon has done pretty well since it was introduced in the ultra-competitive commuter segment, back in August 2018. Targeted at semi-urban and rural commuter motorcycle buyer, TVS has sold over two lakh units of the Radeon, so far.
This special-edition Radeon is powered by the same 109.7cc, air-cooled engine as on the standard bike and develops 8.4hp at 7,000rpm and 8.7Nm of torque at 5,000rpm.
