125 cc Flame from TVS motors is launched in Chennai.. Rs. 49,950 On Road Chennai..

125 cc TVS Flame

TVS has finally launched its much awaited new 125 cc TVS Flame in Chennai on Dec 14 and would be available across India by January 2008.

The 125 cc Flame uses a 3 Valve engine. The Flame is touted to have a Controlled Combustion Variable Timing Intelligent (CC-Vti) technology that allows one valve the supply fuel in slow speed while the other two comes into operation during high speeds.





According to TVS Motor CMD, Mr. Venu Srinivasan:

    "This (CCVTi Technology) ensures that while the bike packs enough power fuel economy is not compromised. The bike logged 82 kms/ltr under Indian Driving Conditions norms which is the highest mileage by any 125 cc bike in India.." Source: Hindustan Times

    "According to the Indian Driving Cycle (IDC), the bike could deliver a mileage of 82 kilometres a litre. ``No vehicle (in this segment) anywhere nears this on mileage"
    Source: Hindu



Hmmm.. 82 Kmpl..?? Actually the most fuel efficienct bikes in India gives mileage of around 70 Kmpl.. So 82 Kmpl seems more like "under ideal trest conditions". Lets wait and see what kind of mileage, the Flame is able to deliver in real life. The claimed top speed for the Flame is around 95 Kmph.

The Flame has been priced at Rs. 49,950 On Road in Chennai for the Alloy Wheels/Electric Start variant (I had called up TVS dealers in Chennai to confirm the price). There seems to be another variant with "front disc brakes" in the pipeline which would cost Rs. 3000 more.

The Flame is probably the best looking bike to have emerged from the TVS stables. In photos it even manages to look better than the TVS Apache RTR 160.

TVS Flame CCVTiRs. 49,950
Suzuki ZeusRs. 50,050

The Disc brake option is also available on the Hero Honda Glamour, Honda Shine and Suzuki Zeus. Suzuki Zeus and Honda Shine also has Spoke Wheel variants in their 125 cc line up. These variants are offered at different price points. TVS has also announced to introduce the Flame with front disc brakes with a premium of Rs. 3000.

err...

"that allows one valve to supply fuel in slow speed while the other two comes into operation during high speeds"

hold it... so, during low speeds, out of 3 valves, 2 are idle... means that the engine running on only one valve?

surely some typo there?

ashes said...

payeng do you really think that this bike looks greater than rtr.i agree that the bike the best looking 125cc but it can't be compared with rtr or pulsar.

Payeng said...

@bambang, no typo here..that's what according to TVS Motor is the feature that differentiates the CC-VTi engine from Bajaj's DTSi engine.. and yes, I forgot to add that the engine also features 2 spark plugs like the Bajaj DTSi engines..

@ashes,

at least in pictures/photos, the Flame is looking fresh and good. now have to see it in the flesh.
