    TVS Raider 125: design

    Sporty styling elements are among the main aspects buyers look for in this space and TVS has delivered. The funky headlight, muscular tank, sharp belly-pan and split-seat set up are the major takeaways when it comes to design. The minimalist LED tail-light is also unique and something we don’t see often on bikes at this price point.
