Born in 2001, TVS’ Victor was a renowned name in the commuter segment back then. Attributed by promising economy, superior ride quality and great ergonomics Victor soon became a household name garnering a fair number of sales every month. While basking in glory, Victor got fenced in by emerging competition which led to a steep fall in demand. Unable to recoup its position, TVS thought to call it a day for the once popular model. Years after Victor’s termination from commuter segment, TVS has resurrected the brand to start afresh. To ensure Victor’s success, TVS did a lot of homework before giving it a final shape, hence the new version is not just a reworked avatar of the previous model but it features aplenty new elements that are quite visible. Engine powering the commuter bike is a new unit and it is notably the most prominent change over the model it precedes. Pricing is spot on positioning the 110cc bike aggressively amid fierce competition.
The well-proportioned muscular contours reflect TVS’ contemporary approach for the reincarnated model. Styling has been done tastefully which complements the chiselled silhouette. Sharp lines are present all across the length of the body and graphics further accentuate the premium look. Cockpit gets a part-analog speedometer but it isn’t all digital. Instrument panel on the whole is not complicated and offers great visibility. The long and wide single piece seat offers enough room for rider as well as pillion.
Victor Engine Specifications & Transmission
Power is drawn by a 110cc, single cylinder, air-cooled engine borrowed from TVS’ Ecothrust engine family. The engine is good for 9.46bhp at 7500rpm along with 9.4Nm of torque at 6000rpm. Moreover, the engine features a combustion chamber oil cooling jacket which improves the performance, lessens the NVH levels and heightens the throttle response.
Among the various features aboard, a switch gear, hazard lights, digital tripmeter, digital odometer, exhaust muffler, a single piece seat, a large clear lens head light, grab rail, hexagonal tail lamp and clear lens indicators are included.
Victor Performance & Mileage
The new engine pulls off impressive performance managing to achieve a top speed mark of 94 kmph. As for the performance, the engine runs smoothly without showing any signs of strain between 70 kmph to 80 kmph. Mileage delivered is impressive making it a frugal option in the commuter segment.
Victor Braking & Handling

Victor Wheels & Tyres
The Remora tyres offer good grip even on the wet surface all thanks to the reduced rolling resistance.
