TVS RONIN is the first’modern-retro’ motorcycle from TVS Motor Company, made for those who dare to live the unscripted way of life. TVS Motor Company, a reputed manufacturer of two-wheelers and three-wheelers globally, forayed into the premium lifestyle segment with the launch of TVS RONIN for its customers in Nepal today.
To celebrate its entry into Nepal, eight local bloggers, influencers, and social media content creators rode the TVS RONIN into the launch event, capturing the thrill of the motorcycle. The eight-day ride started in Kathmandu, covering Pokhara, Marpha, Jomsom, Lumbini, Sauraha, and other parts before concluding back in Kathmandu after covering a distance of approximately 1,300 km across several terrains like hills, mountains, and Terai landscapes in Nepal.
Designed from the ground up, TVS RONIN is a lifestyle statement that takes inspiration from the modern, new-age rider. TVS RONIN is designed with style, technology, and riding experience to promote an unscripted lifestyle for the new generation of urban riders. The 225cc motorcycle weighs 160 kg and delivers a whopping 20.4 PS power, making it one of the best power-to-weight ratios in its category, along with a 19.93 Nm torque. The motorcycle has been engineered with unique tech features like rain and urban ABS modes, Glide Through Technology (GTT), and smart Bluetooth connectivity with voice and ride assistance in a retro design package. Its brand philosophy, ‘Live the Unscripted Life’ – stems from the motorcycle’s unique capabilities, both in the city and on the open road.
TVSRONIN understands its customers and their key affinities when it comes to connecting with them across all touchpoints. Music, travel, and social connections are key motivations for the TVS RONIN customer, and the brand connects all these dots seamlessly through unscripted experiences.
