TVS Raider 125 is available in four different variants: SX, SSE, Split Seat and Single Seat. It comes available in four different colour options: Wicked Black, Striking Red, Fierry Yellow and Blazing Blue. Speaking about the style of the TVS Raider 125, it comes with an eye-catching visual appearance. The bike’s headlamp gets an X-shaped LED treatment, while the sculpted fuel tank, engine guard, large five-inch TFT display and sleek tail section with LED taillights add more appeal to it. It runs on 17-inch black alloy wheels wrapped with tubeless tyres.
Powering the TVS Raider 125 is a 124.8 cc air and oil-cooled single-cylinder engine mated to a five-speed gearbox. This three-valve power mill is good to churn out 11.22 bhp of peak power at 7,500 rpm and 11.2 Nm of maximum torque at 6,000 rpm.
Braking duty onboard the TVS Raider 125 is done by a 240 mm front disc and 130 mm drum. In the lower variants, the bike gets 130 mm drum brakes on both front and rear wheels. Suspension duty on the bike is done by telescopic front forks and five-step adjustable gas-charged monoshock absorbers.
