It has almost
been a decade since the Victor motorcycle made an appearance in the market.
Back then it was a hit not because of its looks or specs, rather what made it a
success was its image as a family friendly bike for the common man. It
delivered a great mileage and was sober and simple to suit the average ‘daddy’
of the early 2000s. Enter 2016 and the standards of the common man have
changed, no longer does he want just sheer mileage and convenience. Now he
demands style and status as well. After all it’s an era of flaunting the good
things in life. So does this new avatar of the TVS Victor live up to the
expectations and standards of today?

striking improvement comes in the form of an updated overall design. The bike
has been made to look beefier and has been inscribed with dual tone graphics.
Add to this the chiseled lines that flow along the bike and you have yourself a
looker. The revised headlamp and tail lamp only add to the bike's imposing
look. You actually mistake the new Victor for a 125cc bike.
When it comes
to the engine, the Victor is powered by a 110cc, 3 valve engine that produces
9.5bhp of power at 7500rpm and 9.4Nm of torque at 6000rpm. This caters to a
great riding experience. A kerb weight of 113 kgs lends the bike an immense
stability even at high speed and the bike does not jitter or shake and produces
minimal engine noise. The Victor 110 comes with an optional disc brake for the
front. The disc performed really well on smooth tarmac and bad roads. Both the
brakes were progressive and add to the confidence of the rider. The bike also
comes with tubeless tyres and taking tight corners is not a bother as you get a
nice grip on the road. The suspension setup has been fine-tuned as well and
when you go over some rough patches and broken tarmac (which is often in cities
like Delhi), you won’t be shaken up too much. But what hampered the riding
experience a bit is the 4-speed constant mesh transmission which we thought
could have been made smoother. Also the acceleration is not the best, but it is
good enough for city driving.
console of the Victor 110 consists of an analogue rpm gauge and a digital
speedometer with trip meter, odometer and fuel level indicator. The console
might not be the best looking one in the segment but gets the job done and is
easy to read. There is also a handy Power and Economy mode indicator which
enables the rider to determine their pattern of driving. The overall aesthetics
of the bike are of great quality and we have no complaints in that area. The
Victor also boasts of one of the most spacious seats in the segment and this is
a welcome feature considering that this is a family oriented vehicle. The
saddle also provides for an upright seating position.
dawns a large 60W head lamp at the front which casts a strong beam and can be
really handy in situations with low visibility like rain and fog. The rear view
mirrors are also large enough and positioned properly to give you a good view
of what is behind you. This is really valuable in city conditions where you
have heavy traffic. In terms of fuel economy, the Victor 110 returns 76
kilometers to the litre which is decent for a 110cc bike especially considering
the kind of performance that it delivers in exchange for this fuel economy,
although the fuel tank is somewhat small at just 8 litres.
this 110cc motorcycle performs ideally in city traffic, has looks which are
contemporary and a mileage that won’t burn a hole in your pocket.
