TVS Zeppelin

Showcased back in 2018 Auto Expo, the TVS Zeppelin even before its launch confirmation has already become a much-awaited bike. The cruiser bike has been made by TVS to challenge the Bajaj Avenger that is the lone standing bike of that segment. It is also the only cruiser that has been doing well in the market since it enjoys the monopoly. You might point out at the Suzuki Intruder but the bike lacks the appeal and the power to compete with the Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise.

The design and the body of the bike looks modern with the paint scheme improving the dynamics of the bike. Instead of using chrome on the bike, they have used a lot of matte black elements. It gives the chrome a total miss. A thing that makes the bike stand out is the gold suspension that the bike gets along with a straight handlebar, LED taillamps, forward set footpegs, and bar-end mirrors. The pillion seat of the bike is lower and more accessible.

Engine and Performance

The bike is expected to be equipped with a 220cc single-cylinder oil-cooled and fuel-injected engine. The power on the bike can be expected to be around 20-22 max bhp and with the torque figures could be around 18 Nm. The engine will come with 5-speed gearbox and a slipper clutch.

The bike will have 17-inch front wheels while the rear wheels will have 15-inch tyres with Apache 200’s 270mm disc front game in the front and 240 mm discs in the rear  with dual-channel ABS on offer. The bike is expected to be priced between INR 1.2-1.25 lakhs (ex-showroom).
