On numerous occasions, Indian roads have seen the bike based on the Meteor 350 being tested. A 349cc, air-cooled, single-cylinder engine, most likely the same one found in the Meteor 350 or the Classic 350, will provide the motorcycle with its power.

According to recent media reports, the upcoming TVS product could either be a street-naked version of the company’s flagship Apache RR 310 motorcycle or the Zeppelin cruiser. The slogan of the new TVS advertising campaign is “new way of life.” Therefore, it is safe to assume that the homegrown brand intends to enter a completely new segment. The business hasn’t specified exactly what it might be, though.
