  • Positives
  • Negatives

Suzuki V-Strom SX

TVS Raider

  • For a 125cc category bike
  • the Raider offers exciting performance. Riding stance and seat are both comfortable. And it comes loaded with segment-first features.

Suzuki V-Strom SX

  • Stiff rear suspension means off-road performance is poor.\r\n\r\nPricing is on the higher side.\r\n\r\nFlat spot in mid range means one has to work the engine for overtakes.

TVS Raider

  • Front brake feedback could have been better.

Recently Asked User Questions

Q. When TVs ntorq is giving 40 mileage then how can TVs raider will give 60 km mileage? Both are 125cc bikes please explain if I'm satisfied with your answer will definitely buy TVS Raider if it has more than 50km mileage ? My need is completely focus on mileage beacause I have to drive per day 100km
  • There are multiple factors that affect the mileage of any vehicle such as engine tuning, transmission type, size of the wheels, driving dynamics, etc. Powering the Raider 125 is a 124.8cc single-cylinder 3-valve engine that only shares its bore and stroke figure with the NTorq 125. It is a completely new engine with a five-speed transmission. This motor makes 11.38PS @ 7500rpm and 11.2Nm @ 6000rpm, making the Raider one of the most powerful bikes in the segment.
  • That's an Manual transmission engine. Scooters don't have manual transmission.
Q. Tvs Raider or CB Shine which is better?
  • Both the bikes are good in their forte. TVS’ has certainly come back to the 125cc segment with a bang with the Raider. It’s fun to ride, feature-packed, feels rather premium and is well priced too. It is definitely one of the most well-rounded offerings in the 125cc space. Whereas, The Honda Shine makes for an excellent proposition after the BS6 update. It offers a ton of features, a frugal engine with a 5-speed transmission and ACG starter motor which makes life much simpler. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read more -TVS Raider 125 First Ride Review..-TVS Raider 125 Road Test Review: The Gen Z’s Heartthrob.
  • Tvs is based for youngsters with a new look and technology. Try to go with Indian made bike like tvs.
Q. Which variant of Raider is best to buy?
  • TVS Raider is offered in two trims: drum (Rs 77,500, ex-showroom, Delhi) and disc (Rs 85,469, ex-showroom, Delhi). TVS will launch a third variant with a colour TFT dash soon. If you want better stopping power and the added safety of the 240mm disc brake, then we would suggest you to go with the Disc variant. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride for a better understanding of performance and comfort. Click on the link and select your desired city for dealership details
