TVS Ronin 225 Overview
TVS Ronin 225 has a unique design. It is different in many ways and this difference brings out a great amount of freshness into the two-wheelers market. The two-wheeler sports a cruiser-style design. The design has not been much explored within the Nepalese Market.
It is a one-of-a-kind design choice even for TVS Motors.
The two-wheeler is a mix between retro elements as well as modern elements.
A circular T-Face Pilot lamp with a powerful LED headlamp can be observed in the front section of the bike. Additionally, the side indicators are also LEDs.
Moreover, the cruiser styling is a lot more apparent from the side profile of the two-wheeler than the front side.
“The bike gets a sculpted tank with the TVS’ signature horse badging, single piece seat, and a tank cowl. Moreover, the rear fender seems to hinder the overall profile of the two-wheeler”
Furthermore, the bike also includes a sleek LED tail lamp.
While some do prefer the rear light to be circular to match the front, the rear light being a sleek streak also plays into its modern design with the retro twist.
Additionally, the Ronin also includes 9-Spoke Alloy Wheels, Chain Cover, and a Custom Exhaust.
Furthermore, the TVS Ronin 225 is expected to come in six different color variations, some of which are: Grey and Orange.
