TVS motors have decided to give its 125cc bike-the Phoenix a fresh breath of life for 2015 by launching a face lifted version of the same. Sources reveal that this move by TVS is mainly due to customer feedback.
Like most of the TVS motorcycles, the new Phoenix comes with several graphics on its body to enhance its visual appeal. TVS have been generous with the number of colour options as well. The Phoenix now comes in 6 different colour schemes. A striking new feature on the new Phoenix is the all-new digital instrument cluster. The system has a tachometer, a service notification as well as low-battery indicator.
The Phoenix comes in two variants, based on the type of front brakes - one that comes with a petal type front disc brake and one that comes with a drum brake at the front and rear. Moving on to the powertrain, the Phoenix 125 is powered by a 125cc, air-cooled “EcoThrust” engine that develops 10.9 bhp at 8000 rpm and has a torque output of 1.1 kgm at 5500 rpm.
TVS has priced the drum-brake variant of the new Phoenix 125 at Rs 51,990 and the front-disc variant at Rs 55,899 (both ex. Showroom Delhi). Stay tuned for our comprehensive review for more in-depth details!
