Backed by rider-first engineering, to deliver rider-machine unity, this lean-mean-clean machine designed to create desire, has been developed from the ground up at TVS Motor’s R&D facility. Designed, developed, and made-in-India, TVS X comes with a powerful electric motor and advanced battery technology.
The three pillars defining the TVS X include–
DESIGN: At the heart of the TVS X is its cutting-edge design, created with an inside-out approach, where form follows function. It offers a visually stunning silhouette that has been aerodynamically optimised to bring to life our design philosophy that shows harmonious flow and dynamics, leading to a machine that is designed to be truly fast and thrilling. This electric machine is an absolute head-turner and evokes an unbroken sense of awesome wonder in every rider.
Built on an all-new platform, the TVS X is built on a high precision cast aluminium alloy frame as its centre piece. The TVS X let on frame sets a benchmark in the industry and has been developed with optimum stiffness and durability in mind. The layout flows into a monocast subframe, designed to maximise space and convenience. The minimised drag resistance ensures the vehicle cuts through the air with least resistance thus enhancing the vehicle’s efficiency. This also boasts of a segment 1st Ram Air Cooled Motor as opposed to existing forced convection cooling methods, that allows dynamic cooling for critical parts, and deliver sustained performance.
The four-element LED headlamp leads the way with signature style, followed by sequential turn indicators and programmable light sequences that allow the user to animate start up, shut down and various other vehicle states to personalise the machine.
PERFORMANCE: The TVS X is built around a ‘rider-first’ philosophy. It has been developed from the ground up to break the norm and is engineered to allow riders to experience handling at a telepathic level. From vehicle dynamics, control software, powertrain, the aluminium frame, new OS, to the robust software architecture, everything has been developed from scratch in house by dedicated design, engineering, and software teams.
The TVS X let on frame offers >2X tortional stiffness and >4X the vertical stiffness compared to the category standard, offering superb agility and extraordinary steering precision. A carefully packaged battery unit complements it to manage the centre of gravity and deliver best-in-class dynamics that enhances the rider’s sense of control. Specially developed tyre compounds for the TVS X, also improves grip levels while reducing rolling resistance.
At 11kW of peak power, the TVS X is the most powerful EV in the segment with class leading acceleration of 0- 40kmph in 2.6 seconds, and a sustained true max speed of 105kmph. This performance is possible from the PMSM (Permanent Magnet Synchronous Motor) motor supported by an integrated controller, developed in house by TVS Motor.
Further efficiency gains are made thanks to multi-level selectable re-gen modes to suit individual riding styles. In case of emergencies, it is equipped with the latest generation of ABS, also a segment first, for confidence inspiring stops. TVS X comes with a smart Hill-Hold feature, that ascertains the most precise operation.
TVS X has a high-performance battery pack that delivers 4.44kWh of installed capacity energy, one of the best in the segment. The in-house developed Battery Management System at TVS Motor ensures safe operation and prolonged lifespan of the cells by continuously monitoring current flow. Finally, TVS X comes with option of SmartX Home rapid charger, that delivers 0 - 50% in 50 minutes (optional add-on 3 kW fast charger) or portable charger delivering 0 - 80% in 4 hours 30 minutes (950W charger).
CONNECTED TECHNOLOGY: The electric two-wheeler comes with a 10.2-inch HD+TFT touchscreen, the largest in this class, and offers deeper customisation. To add to the convenience, the expansive cluster, placed atop the forged aluminium handlebar, can also be adjusted for tilt, ensuring the rider always has the best visibility in all riding positions.
