TVS Ronin Latest Updates

The Ronin is TVS’ attempt at making a multi-genre motorcycle, as the Ronin is a neo-retro scrambler, with a slightly raked out front that somewhat resembles a cruiser. It also has an all-new 225.9cc air-/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine. It also comes with a wide range of accessories for those who want to customise their bike.


TVS Ronin Price : The TVS Ronin is offered in 4 variants: The SS variant comes at Rs 1,49,200 and the DS variant sells for Rs 1,56,700. Both these variants come with single-channel ABS. The top TD variant gets dual-channel ABS and comes at a price of Rs 1,68,950. TVS is also offering a special edition of the bike which is sold at a price of Rs 1,72,700 (all prices ex-showroom Delhi).

TVS Ronin Design : The TVS Ronin mostly looks like a neo-retro scrambler, so it has traditional bits but with modern elements. For example, it has a round headlight, but it is an LED with a T-face DRL and LED turn indicators. The offset single-pod instrument cluster is another ‘retro’ touch, but it is a completely modern, all-LED unit. Viewed in profile, though, the Ronin has some traditional cruiser/roadster design elements, with the relatively raked-out fork and large, curvy fuel tank, which the boxy side panels contrast with. The tail section feels bulky with the fat rear fender, and large (but functional) chain cover – that resembles a belt drive, usually seen on cruisers – and a full-length cylindrical exhaust.

Features of TVS Ronin : The TVS Ronin comes with all-LED lighting (headlight, taillight, and indicators) along with an LCD instrument cluster with Bluetooth connectivity via TVS SmartXonnect and also voice assist on the premium variants. TVS SmartXonnect brings functionalities such as call/SMS alerts, phone battery/signal status, and turn-by-turn navigation. TVS has also brought Glide-Through-Tech to the bike, which is their term for low-rpm assist. This allows the rider to navigate through traffic using only clutch modulation, and without having to give throttle inputs. Other features include a silent starter, a slip-and-assist clutch and adjustable brake/clutch levers (on the top variant). For added safety, the motorcycle comes equipped with a side-stand engine kill function. The higher variants also get dual-channel ABS with 2 modes: Urban and Rain, which have varying intervention levels.

TVS Ronin Engine : The Ronin is powered by a 225.9cc air-/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine which makes 20.4PS and 19.93Nm. The engine has been tuned specifically for low- to mid-range grunt. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission and also gets a slip-and-assist clutch.

TVS Ronin Suspension, Brakes & Other Details : The TVS Ronin is built on a double-cradle split-frame and is suspended on a 41mm inverted fork and a 7-step preload-adjustable monoshock. The braking setup consists of a 300mm front and 240mm rear disc, with single-channel ABS on the SS and SD variants, and dual-channel ABS on the TD and Special edition. The bike has a kerb weight of 159kg (SS and SD variants) and 160kg (TD variant and Special edition). It gets a 14-litre fuel tank and a 181mm ground clearance.

TVS Ronin Rivals : The TVS Ronin goes up against the likes of the Royal Enfield Hunter 350, Jawa 42, and Honda CB350RS.

TVS Ronin Pros and Cons

Ronin Advantages

Torquey engine ensures you don’t have to shift as frequently, Excellent fit and finish, Lightweight and agile in both city traffic and highway, Can easily accommodate tall riders.

Ronin Disadvantages

Unimpressive highway performance, You’ll need to pull the front brake lever really hard for aggressive braking

Ronin Expert's Conclusion

The confusing styling aside, the Ronin is still a peppy and friendly motorcycle that is good for everyday commutes. The engineering finesse and build quality is decent but the styling and top-end engine performance isn’t. The Ronin also comes off as a bit expensive for a bike that is primarily meant to be a city commuter.

TVS Ronin Expert Review

The TVS Ronin has been made to be a ‘multi-genre motorcycle’ which incorporates different elements from cruiser, scrambler, and neo-retro motorcycle styles. It marks a significant shift away from the racing legacy of TVS

Design

The Ronin is a mixed bag when it comes to the design. It tries to blend various design elements taken from different genres simultaneously, giving the bike an unconventional appearance. The frame’s headstock has an odd visual gap because of the fuel tank’s contour, and the side panels come across as too blocky. The raked-out front is similar to a cruiser but the slightly forward-set footpegs and beefy fuel tank give it a hint of roadster genes. On the other hand, the large, high-set rear fender and block pattern tyres give it a scrambler-like appeal.

Engine, Mileage and Performance

The TVS Ronin is powered by a 225.9cc air/oil-cooled single-cylinder engine which makes 20.4PS and 19.93Nm. The engine shines best in urban settings, it is able to offer exceptional  tractability and decent torque, which makes the use of high gears at lower speeds a breeze. We were even able to take slow U-turns in third gear and also manoeuvre through urban obstacles like speed bumps and potholes effortlessly. Commuting feels effortless in the third gear and the bike can sustain speeds of up to 53kmph easily, beyond which vibrations start creeping in, prompting a gear change.

The Glide-Through-Tech function i.e TVS’ term for their low-rpm assist, allows riders to ride in slow traffic conditions using only clutch modulation and no throttle input. What’s surprising about the bike’s tractability is that the fifth gear can easily sustain speeds as low as 30kmph, which reduces the need for frequent gear shifts in the city.

When it comes to the highway, the Ronin struggles a bit. The engine starts showing signs of strain at higher speeds, as most of the power is concentrated between 4000 and 6000rpm, especially in third to fifth gear. While the bike boasts significant low-end grunt in the first two gears, its limited powerband and the lack of top-end performance is clear on open roads limiting the bike’s cruising potential.

The Ronin maintains comfort at 80kmph, with minimal vibrations and a relaxed riding experience. But if you are okay with some vibrations then cruising at 90kmph is possible if you maintain 6000rpm. But beyond this range, the powerband tapers significantly and maintaining triple-digit speeds requires substantial throttle input. The performance limitation is disappointing when compared to the Apache RTR 200 4V which is able to handle higher speeds better

Handling & Ride Quality

The Ronin has a relaxed rake angle but doesn’t come off as sluggish. The broad handlebar makes changing direction easy, and the upright riding posture and manageable, 160kg kerb weight makes navigation through traffic effortless. While the upper body remains erect, the legs are positioned a bit forward, giving the impression of a heel-toe shifter, though the bike comes with a toe-only unit which can feel a bit awkward when adjusting one’s ankle beneath the lever

Braking performance is acceptable but leaves room for improvement when it comes to feedback and progression. The spongy feel of the lever makes it difficult to judge braking pressure accurately during hard braking situations.

Comfort

The suspension is skillfully tuned, offering a supple ride that adeptly handles both mild, low-speed undulations and instills confidence at higher speeds. It proficiently soaks up the majority of rough bumps, shielding the rider from their jarring effect

Furthermore, the TVS Remora block-pattern tyres provide good grip even when cornering at high speeds. This, combined with the engine’s abundant torque at the low and mid range, makes navigating twisty mountain roads a satisfying experience.

Features

The TVS Ronin is quite feature-loaded. The LCD display is an offset single-pod unit, and comes with smartphone connectivity via TVS SmartXonnect on the higher-end TD variant. The TVS SmartXonnect technology allows riders to access features such as call/SMS alerts, phone battery/signal status and turn-by-turn navigation.

The only major issue with the instrument console is that it tries to cram too much information into a very small display, making it difficult to read. The bike also features a silent starter which operates flawlessly but nevertheless remains a novelty feature that many would prefer to trade for better engine refinement or an additional gear. 

Verdict:

The TVS Ronin is undeniably a good, well-equipped bike which is tailored for urban commuting. Although the bike fulfils its role very well, the lack of a soul is quite evident. The pricing of the bike is also towards the higher end of the spectrum for a city-centric bike. This is in contrast to the other value-for-money TVS models like the Apache RTR 160 4V, the NTroq 125 or even the Radeon. The Ronin falls short of bringing that “special” feel. TVS had introduce an interesting concept with this bike, and there's still room for improvement.

  • A Year with My TVS Ronin

    After owning the TVS Ronin for over a year, I have my fair share of joys and gripes. The 225.9 cc engine is a powerhouse, delivering 20.4 bhp which makes highway rides exhilarating. Its unique design is a head turner, combining modern and retro elements.The seating is quite comfortable, even for long durations, which is a plus on longer trips. However, the Ronin's weight (159 kg) can be a bit difficult to handle in dense traffic. I also find the mileage a bit disappointing at around 35 kmpl which is a significant factor for daily commuters in India.

  • wonder is where ronin is

    In past few months we purchased some bikes in which TVS Ronin is also their . It is a newcomer in the Indian bike market, positioned as a scrambler-style bike that blends retro design with modern features. My Ronin gets a 225.9cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled BS6 engine. This engine offers enough power for city riding, highway riding, and even some light off-road . Overall TVS Ronin is a good choice for riders searching a stylish and versatile bike.

  • Nice premium feel

    TVS Ronin provides single channel ABS and the starting point of this bike is really good. It has a nice looking design and the top end comes with the dual channel ABS and also connectivity and gives great performance and this is a relaxed bike but is not an aggressive and thrilling bike. It is a very nice bike to ride and the experience with this bike is really enjoyable and gives flexible experience and it respond very well and the design of this bike is definetely awsome and the quality of this bike is also great.
