TVS brought the Victor bike to the Indian market in 2001. The bike has received good sales since its launch. It impressed the community with its mundane design layout and performance. The bike gets a sharp design that reflects its sporty nature. In addition, the soft suspension favours riding comfort in the city and long journeys on highways. The design possessed by TVS Victor is impossible to find in rivals, at least in the 110 cc segment. The engine is peppy and fuel-efficient. 


Pros

  • Reliable 110 cc engine with good rideability

  • Good grip from brakes

  • One of the lightest bikes

Cons

  • Expensive side in the segment

  • Average parts quality

What is the power source in this TVS Victor?


Just after starting the TVS Victor, there is an instant lower vibration from the 110 cc motor that settles after 1,000 rpm mark. The Single Overhead Cam petrol engine propels 9.46 hp of power at 7,500 rpm along with 9.5 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The engine is paired to a 4-speed gearbox. The EcoThrust exhaust has a little bass to it, however, it is not loud as a 150 cc bike. For its segment though, the Victor has a better exhaust sound than rivals.

How quick is the TVS Victor for your daily commuting needs?

TVS Victor takes 7.2 seconds to achieve the 60 kmph mark from zero. The vibrations are pronounced in the footpegs and the under-seat once you try to cross 6,000 rpm. We wished the company would have added a fifth gear as the engine has enough grunt to take through highways. Moreover, the company might have caught up with a 4-speed transmission in order to keep the price competitive.

How sure-footed are the brakes?


Braking is courtesy of two available options, a front disc, rear drum brake variant and a dual drum brake version. There is ample bite from the front as well as at the rear brake, however, under repeated hard braking the rear drum setup starts pushing backwards. Apart from that, the brakes return good feedback and you'll feel less impact on the palm or right foot. The Remora tyres with 2.75 section up front and 3.00 section at the rear, both on 17-inch wheels offer good grip.

How is the ride dynamics?


When it comes to handling, Victor is just like any other similar bike in its segment and handles fairly well. Manoeuvring it through traffic is also easy as the Victor is light on its feet with a 113 kg kerb weight for the disc brake variant.

How comfortably are you seated on the TVS Victor while travelling on roads?


The seat is also well-cushioned, providing good protection against small potholes. The straight seating position ensures comfortable riding posture throughout the ride. However, for the long haul, tall riders might experience back pain due to low set handlebars.

How Subtle looking is the 2020 TVS Victor?

TVS has adapted a different design approach with Victor. It has several distinguishing factors compared to most of the bike sold in 110 cc segment. The paint job along with blackened out colour theme adds more glamour to the bike. Other attributes in the design layout include sculpted fuel tank, large trapezoidal headlamp with pilot lamps, a clear lens tail lamp. 


The instrument cluster comes with an analogue tachometer with a white background, giving a retro feel to the bike. The information is displayed on LCD screen next to the tachometer. Switchgear is well-built and gives a tactile feel. The engine kill switch is replaced with a  hazard warning indicator switch.

  • Comfortable series spring suspension

  • Spacious seat

  • Roto-Petal Disc brake

  • High intensity headlamp with hazard lamps

The tubeless Remora tyres offer a skinny look, which is a bit of a letdown as slightly wider rubber would've eliminated the premium feel. The glaring red coloured springs of the rear shockers do not mix up with 'Blissful Blue' exterior colour. Overall, the design does look upmarket. 

What are the various safety and class-leading features?

TVS Victor comes with sleek design and both drum and disc variants. The front gets hazard and pilot lamps for poor light conditions.

How does the Competition stack up against TVS Victor?

TVS Victor VS Bajaj Discover 110


Priced at Rs. 53,811, the Discover 110 is an excellent package from Bajaj Auto. Bajaj is also asking Rs 5K less over the Victor which makes it a good value for money. However, TVS Victor cannot be overlooked because it is supported by its design and better ergonomics. Only if it was cheaper and the low-end torque would have been better. Victor will still be a choice over Bajaj Discover 110. 

TVS Victor VS Honda Dream Yuga


Priced at Rs. 54,566, Honda Dream Yuga is Rs. 500 costlier than TVS Victor. The claimed mileage for both the bikes is 72 kmpl. There are very slight differences in terms of technical specifications. However, the TVS Victor offers a better package altogether compared to Honda Dream Yuga. 

Does the TVS Victor stand a chance against segment leaders?

Despite being offered with an aggressive price tag compared to rivals, the TVS Victor offers an array of good features with some segment-first equipment like the hazard warning switch. Overall, the TVS Victor comes across as a reasonable value-for-money package which has decent performance figures and a good feature list. If not on a tight budget, TVS Victor is the bike you should get in this segment.
