The Urban mode lets you accelerate and decelerate quickly and this mode is suitable while driving in traffic. On the other hand, the rain mode provides stability on slippery roads making your bike capable of maintaining its rhythm even in harsh conditions. At last, the sport mode unleashes the maximum power and makes this bike a race machine.

A single-channel ABS unit has also been given for the safety of the rider, but it would have been better if TVS equipped the new model with a 2-channel ABS unit.

Style: It's a beautifully crafted beast, when you just sit on the bike you feel like you are in a Race. Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox: It's loaded with 160CC powerful RTR engine that you can really feel it. And fuel economy is good! I have just done with 2nd service (today) and so far I have got 60kmpl riding around 55km/hr and had never crossed 60km/hr.. but today I was really exited and happy to ride my beast at its best, I really enjoyed the pickup, speed, thrill.... coming to gearbox it lags (some times), it is smooth while the up shifts and stuck while down shifts and have to slow down the bike for down shifts but this is a common problem in all bike range. Ride Quality & Handling: Ride quality and Handling is extremely good.. but rear tyre slips when you brake, you might have to use good quality tyres. Areas of improvement: Riding comfort as riders get back ache, tyres, gearbox

Best Features: RTR, dashboard has many options, etc

Pros: Good performance, stylish, fuel economy, ride quality

Cons: Comfort, gearbox
