Can TVS Raider 125 become a part of the 125cc segment? (Price, Specifications, Features, and Overall)

The new TVS Raider 125 has joined the Ntorq 125 in the segment to draw in younger consumers. In an attempt to gain market share in India, TVS Motor Company is targeting the 125cc segment. The motorcycle is intended to compete against well-known rivals like the Bajaj Pulsar NS125 and the Honda SP 125, and TVS has made sure to make it enjoyable enough to do so.

About the design it has modern LED headlights, a body-colored headlight cowl, a body-colored front fender, a split saddle design, an aluminium grab rail, and an engine cowl. There are four colours available for this 125cc sporty commuter motorcycle: Fiery Yellow, Wicked Black, Blazing Blue, and Striking Red.
TVS Raider has a lot in common with Bumblebee and gives it a very aggressive appearance. The split seat arrangement and the sharp tank extensions add even more sportiness to the vehicle. Having said that, you can also choose a single-piece by selecting the model with a single seat. Overall, for a 125cc product, the TVS Raider 125's aggressive and premium styling is pretty amazing, and it will appeal to a lot of riders. 

Engine and Gearbox
The engine is a 124.8cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, three-valve unit with a peak torque of 11.2Nm at 6,000 rpm and 11.2bhp of power at 7,500 rpm. There is a five-speed gearbox connected to the motor. The top speed has been rated at 99 kmph, and the company claims that the acceleration from 0 to 60 kmph takes 5.9 seconds.

The motor is at ease on fast highways. Additionally, it feels refined the majority of the time; the vibrations only become noticeable at higher revs. Additionally smooth, despite encountering a few false neutrals, is the gearbox. 

Although the engine has a charming and sporty personality, the braking system is not up to the mark. The front's response comes across as stiff and uninspiring in terms of feedback. When combined with the rear brake, the arrangement performs admirably. When the rear brake is engaged, the combined braking system presses against the front disc, improving the feel of the setup. Experienced riders might not find it appealing.

Both of the motorcycle's models come equipped with an LED headlight with integrated LED DRLs, an LED taillight, an Idle Stop-Start system, a five-inch digital display, two ride modes Power and Eco, and first-in-class underseat storage. A colour TFT display, Bluetooth connectivity, and a voice assistant feature that integrates with the TVS SmartXConnect system are additional advantages of the Connected model. Additional features like voice assistance, navigation, incoming call alerts, and message notifications are included with the Connected version. An additional USB charger is offered as an option.

Suspension and brakes
The suspension system consists of a preload-adjustable rear monoshock and 30mm telescopic front forks. On the base model, both wheels' drum units are in charge of braking. A 240mm disc and a 130mm drum unit are fitted to the disc variant's front and rear, respectively. All variants have a combined braking system as a safety feature.
