The TVS Zeppelin R is likely to be launched soon

It will be the TVS motor's maiden attempt into the cruiser segment.

A 220cc single-cylinder engine powers the TVS Zeppelin R.

It's essentially a bored-out version of the motor from the acclaimed Apache RTR 200 4V, which puts out 20PS and 18.5Nm torque.

Interestingly, TVS has kept the cruiser tag and included a belt drive mechanism.

The production bike may have a traditional chain drive mechanism to reduce costs.

The exterior highlights include hexagonal headlights with integrated LED DRLs, and chunky USD forks finished in gold color.

It is predicted that TVS would increase the engine capacity to 250cc to extract more incredible performance from the motor.

The 250cc - 350cc cruiser sector is currently dominated by Honda H'Ness CB 350, Jawa Perak, and Royal Enfield Meteor 350 in India.

If TVS corrects the price-to-feature ratio, it will benefit a broader spectrum of purchasers searching for a sporty, technologically advanced cruiser.

We anticipate TVS pricing the Zeppelin R at roughly Rs 1.5 lakh.
