TVS Raider Bike Latest Updates

TVS has launched a Super Squad Edition of the Raider 125. Check out the details here.

TVS launched a new ‘base variant’ of the Raider that comes with a single-piece seat setup. Click here to read the launch story.

The TVS Raider 125 is the Hosur-based manufacturer's comeback into the 125cc motorcycle segment. It falls under the premium spectrum and comes with several segment-first features.

TVS Raider Engine

The TVS Raider 125 is powered by a single-cylinder 124.8cc engine that is air-cooled and has an oil cooler. It churns out 11.38PS and 11.2Nm and works in conjunction with a 5-speed gearbox. The bike’s chassis is suspended on a telescopic front fork and a 5-step preload-adjustable monoshock at the rear. Braking is looked after using 240mm disc/130mm drum at the front and a 130mm drum unit at the rear, with standard CBS. The bikes roll on 17-inch alloy wheels that are shod with 80-section (front) and 100-section (rear) tubeless tyres.

TVS Raider Variants

The TVS Raider 125 comes in three variants: Single Seat, Split Seat and SX. The single seat variant comes in a single ‘Striking Red’ colour, with the split seat variant getting four shades (Fiery Yellow, Blazing Blue, Striking Red & Wicked Black). The top-end SX variant of the TVS Raider 125, however, comes in just two paint schemes (Fiery Yellow & Wicked Black). The only difference between the base and the mid-spec variants is the seat type, whereas the top-end version comes with a TFT console that gets smartphone connectivity.

TVS Raider Design

The LED face on the TVS Raider 125 looks quite familiar, almost instantly reminding you of Bumblebee, and the bike is in line with a sporty naked design language. The fuel tank is large and comes with sharp extensions. The side panels are edgy and along with split-seats, add to the sporty looks of the motorcycle. The bike also comes in a single-piece seat variant, giving the bike a slightly commuter-ish appeal. The rear design, however, is a bit unappealing, with the tail section looking slightly out of place. Overall, the TVS Raider 125 looks quite premium and sporty for a 125cc product.

Key Features of TVS Raider

The TVS Raider 125 comes with LED headlight and tail lamp but uses halogens for the turn signals. The single-piece and mid-spec split-seat variants come with a negative LCD console that displays the standard bits such as speedometer, tachometer, trip meter and a fuel gauge. It also has a low fuel prompt, gear position indicator, a clock and even a fuel efficiency indicator with the bike also getting switchable ride modes. The top-spec SmartXonnect variant boasts a 5-inch colour TFT console that has Bluetooth connectivity (using a smartphone) to offer turn-by-turn navigation, weather updates, music control, call/SMS alerts, voice assist, nearby fuel pump locations, cricket updates and even social media updates.

TVS Raider Competitors

The TVS Raider 125 competes with the likes of the Honda SP125, Hero Glamour 125, Bajaj Pulsar NS125, and the Keeway SR125.

TVS Raider Pros and Cons

  • Raider Advantages

    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.

  • Raider Disadvantages

    Front brake feedback could have been better.

  • Expert's Conclusion

    TVS Raider 125 brings the bike maker back on the map of 125cc motorcycles and it has opened well enough. The bike is fun to ride, packed with features, is priced on par with the competition, and feels premium. The bike is definitely one of the most well-rounded offerings in the 125cc category.

TVS Raider Expert Review


The Urban Dictionary describes Gen Z as the first generation steeped in truly what we mean as a global culture. A generation that seeks individualism and strives to make the most of today.

When the TVS Raider 125 was introduced, not only did it step into the super-competitive 125cc premium commuter segment, but it also had the Gen Z on its radar. Will the Raider 125 pay the price for TVS' bravado, or has it cracked the formula? 


The USP of a 125cc commuter has never been its styling; it possibly never could be. A buyer of this segment isn't looking for a well-chiseled naked that can woo crowds but a dapper roadster that can be easy on the pockets. This is probably why bike makers don't think much about the aesthetic appeal of a 125cc commuter. But just like the individualism-obsessed generation, the Raider seeks to stand apart. 

A glance at the TVS Raider 125, and you'll find it difficult to tell if it indeed is a 125cc commuter. The bike definitely demands a second look, thanks to the distinctive LED DRL and the all-LED headlight to a well-sculpted fuel tank with knee recess and tank extensions. While its competitors rely on an overload of graphics (and dare I say, drab colours), the TVS Raider 125 proudly wears just the 3D TVS logo and Raider badges, exuding premium-ness. 


Complementing the TVS Raider's youthful styling is its ergonomics. While the world expects a motorcycle of this segment to be just another mode of commute, the Raider strives for more.

For a bike whose primary purpose is to handle daily duties, this is one brilliant machine. The low and wide handlebar, coupled with the slightly rear-set footpegs, gives it a forward-set commanding riding position, promising an engaging ride.

But don't get me wrong. For all the sporty that it is, the ergonomics are commute-focused. The 780mm saddle height is the lowest amongst its competitors, so planting your feet firmly on the ground won't be a problem. The seat is roomy, and the flat pillion seat is equally enjoyable. 

Performance And Mileage

The TVS Raider 125's highlight has to be its engine. The 124.8cc single-cylinder three-valve engine may seem similar to the NTorq 125, but TVS assures us it's an all-new engine. It delivers 11.38PS at 7500rpm and 11.2Nm at 6000rpm, making it the most powerful and torquiest motorcycle among its competitors. 

As you thumb the new silent starter, the bike comes to life with a rumbly exhaust note, something you wouldn't expect from a bike of this segment. Slot it in the first gear, and as you move along, there's a certain urgency to the way the engine delivers power. Heck, with that raspy exhaust, you'll be tempted to push the engine further, and it complies...happily.

And if you don't want its segment-leading acceleration, you can always switch to the 'Eco' riding mode. Yes, the engineers at Hosur have thrown in riding modes for this commuter, and they work flawlessly. 

Fuel Efficiency

TVS Raider

Hero Glamour BS6







The 'Eco' riding mode mellows down the throttle response a little, restricting the engine to 8,000rpm (1000 revs lower). In this mode, you can also cherish the idle-start/stop system, which kills the engine when idling for more than a few seconds, and all you need is a blip of the throttle to bring it back to life. 

Out on the highway, surprisingly, it doesn't feel like the engine is punching above its weight. Overtaking the juggernauts isn't taxing, and it can happily do 85kmph-90kmph all day long. It is only after that when you feel it's gasping a little. But let's not forget that it is a "humble" 125cc commuter.


Like Gen Z is seeking to push beyond its comfort zone, the TVS Raider 125 also doesn't want to stay restricted to the city limits. At 123kg, the Raider is relatively light, and coupled with the skinny TVS Remora tyres, cutting past through traffic is all the more fun. 

What is not expected from a bike of this genre is to be a capable handler for weekend thrills, and the TVS Raider 125 surprises you with its handling capability, which might seem a bit daunting at first. It is very reactive to steering inputs, but once you get the hang of it, it is easy to corner, and it holds its line well. TVS has managed to ace the sportiness-to-comfort ratio with the suspension tune. The components allow you to attack corners with enough thirst while being equally adaptable upon encountering a mid-corner bump.

And that's commendable as it feels pretty easy nullifying speed humps, sharp ridges, and unbearable rumble strips. Yes, it is not as softly sprung as the Honda SP 125 or other traditional commuter rivals. But just like we experienced on the NTorq, the slightly firm suspension remains settled and doesn't wallow over broken roads, even with somebody riding pillion.

The chink in the TVS Raider 125's armour, though, is its braking system. While the calibration of the combined braking system is just about right, the performance isn't upto the mark, and that's because the front brake lever barely has any travel. So, beyond a certain point, the lever won't budge, limiting the bike's braking force.

Hero Glamour BS6









A generation that grew up with social media and the wild world of the internet is hard to please. But the TVS Raider 125 does that, and how! The multi-colour LCD instrument console is bright and easy to read even under direct sunlight. It packs a plethora of information ranging from a gear indicator to average speed, top speed readouts, and even a fuel economy indicator. There's even a USB charger, a sheer necessity for the generation that's always on the go.

But Gen Z won't settle for a fancy LCD display, right? After all, it grew up surrounded by LED screens and bright TFT displays. Well, TVS is already working on a new variant that would get a TFT console with Bluetooth connectivity and turn-by-turn navigation. 


TVS Raider Drum

Rs 77,500

TVS Raider Disc

Rs 85,469

The TVS Raider 125 is a fresh approach to how the world perceives the 125cc commuter segment. At Rs 77,500 for the drum variant, the pricing is justifiable, though the Rs 8,000 premium for the disc brake is slightly questionable.

The TVS Raider 125 does what is expected from a bike of this genre and strives for more. It has character, and instead of simply complying with inputs, it takes pride in showing its potential, be it with its peppy engine or agility. The sporty nature of the commuter doesn't come at the cost of practicality, and with features like a USB charger and practical underseat storage, everyday life should become a tad simpler for you. It doesn't feel out of the league on the highway, considering it's a bike meant for the city.

Of course, it is not perfect. The braking, for one, needs improvement. However, it isn't a glaring downside and wouldn't hamper your experience with the bike. Guess TVS' endeavour -- to build a bike that's unique while doing what the world expects it to do perfectly -- has borne fruit.
