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 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.
The new engine immediately succeeded in conveying a nice, refined feel, with snappy throttle response, and flawless character. Power delivery is always smooth and buzz-free, even when riding fast, pulling revs higher than required on a commuter bike.
Performance feels just as quick as expected from a 110cc motorcycle, and very close to even some more upmarket 125cc bikes.
The Victor remains a comfortable motorcycle to pilot, with an upright commuter-friendly riding position. The footrest-to seat-and handlebar triangle is well thought out, and riding saddle well-padded, also step-free and long enough for both rider and pillion.
You’ll be surprised by the powerful retardation force that greets you the moment you hit the front brake. The Victor comes with an optional front disc brake, a 240mm, petal type rotor, the added safety which proved well worth paying for.
The 2016 Victor fits into its class smartly, offering nice features, a refinement engine with ample performance and good comfort too. Pretty much at the top of its space.
