    Make : TVS
    Model : Victor
    TVS has just brought in the 2016 Victor – a sequel to its first very successful motorcycle, made in-house after the company parted ways with Suzuki. As expected, the new bike has been given a cosmetic facelift, apart from quite a few significant mechanical upgrades. 
     
    Keeping in mind the proof of the pudding is always in the eating, we hopped on for a test ride.

    Familiar family

    As part of the facelift, the reintroduced Victor gains a sharper look, while not giving up any of its family design cues. Still styled to look the commuter motorcycle it is, the new Victor headlamp now sports more angular, contemporary lines. The instruments include an up-segment tachometer that’s legible and tells you engine speed, while a digital display includes other essential information, and even a twin trip facility. A TVS typical economy riding indicator flashes out its presence too.

    To touch, the 2016 Victor palm grips, control levers and switchgear all feel nice and well-finished, while the mirrors also offer adequate rear view vision. A hazard warning button is also in place on the new Victor. New graphics adorn the 2016 model's fuel tank and flank panels. The motorcycle seat has a nice ‘leather-like’ texture, with up-market red stitching that catches your eye and adds a touch of class. You also get smart alloy wheels, in a matte black theme that also coats several other surfaces.

    To sum it up, overall quality, fit-finish and attention to detail are all good on this new TVS.
