- The Radeon Special Edition is around Rs 2,000 to Rs 4,000 more expensive than the standard model.
- Apart from the addition of a disc brake, the motorcycle remains the same as the standard variant.
- It’s available in two paint options - chrome-black and chrome-brown.
TVS has launched the Radeon Special Edition, which is available in two variants - drum and disc, with prices starting from Rs 52,720. At these prices, the special edition Radeon is around Rs 2,000 to Rs 4,000 more dearer than the standard model.
Apart from two new colour options - chrome-black and chrome-brown - some minor cosmetic changes and a new seat, the biggest change in the special edition motorcycle is the addition of an optional front disc brake which should help improve its braking performance. With the two-wheeler industry going through its worst downturn in decades, TVS hopes these changes and additions will spur sales and help the company clear its existing stock before BS6 emission norms are implemented in April 2020. The rest of the motorcycle remains the same as the standard model. If you need a refresher on how the Radeon behaves in the real world, then click here.
