By Obaidullah khan

The new single seat variant of the Raider 125 is around Rs 1,000 cheaper than the split seat variant that starts at Rs 94,719 (ex-sh, Delhi).

The top-spec SmartXonnect variant, which also has split seats, is priced at Rs 1,00,820.

TVS has discontinued the drum brake variant of the Raider 125.

The primary motive for launching a single seat version of Raider is to improve the bike's positioning as a commuter bike.

The single seat option for Raider targets a larger customer base, making it more practical.

The single seat variant is available only in a single colour option of Striking Red, while the split seat variant is available in four colours.

Powering the bike is a same 124.8cc, single cylinder, air and oil-cooled engine that produces 11.4 PS of max power and 11.2 Nm of peak torque.

Raider offers best-in-class acceleration, with 0 to 60 kmph achieved in 5.9 seconds.

Raider 125’s mileage is also improved with technologies such as engine start-stop and Ecothrust Fi.

The 2023 TVS Raider 125 gets telescopic forks at front and gas-charged, 5-step adjustable monoshock unit at rear.

TVS Raider 125 has 17-inch wheels at both ends, 240 mm disc at the front and 130 mm drum at rear. Synchronized braking technology (SBT) is standard across all variants.
