TVS Motors recently hosted MotoSoul in Goa. The brand showcased four custom ronin at the event. TVS also has a Flat Track Experience where they use modified Ronins. The motorcycle was converted into a tablet tracker by TVS themselves. To this end, the manufacturer had to make quite a few changes to the Ronin 225.
First, the motorcycle’s suspension setup was changed. It now has long-travel suspension, which means increased suspension travel and increased ground clearance. There is also a large skid plate under the engine to protect it from rocks.
The motorcycle was also lightened due to the absence of a headlight, the rear was also modified with a fairing instead of a one-piece seat, and the tail was removed. It appears the instrument cluster has also been removed. Being a flat tracker, the front disc brakes have been removed, and there are new tires as well. The handlebars on the motorcycle are also wider and taller. The footpegs are also different, they don’t have rubber pads. Instead, there are spikes that improve grip.

The engine has also been updated. It has been retuned to suit the new characteristics of the motorcycle. There’s a new exhaust on the side too, it has heat shields, and it’s also lighter than stock. The stock engine on the TVS Ronin is a 225.9 cc single cylinder that is oil cooled. It produces 20.12 bhp at 7,750 rpm and a peak torque output of 19.93 Nm at 3,750 rpm. The duty transmission is a 5-speed unit that slips and assists the clutch.
