        OK,

        So here comes the Review
        Though i beleive im the only owner of Flame in XBHP
        This thread still stays as an Single User Thread

        Ok Here we comes to the topic
        Atlast i managed to click some pics - from my friends Mobile cam
        The quality is somehow OK - just managed it

        And @mods - I've given the Water Marks - though not so bright - it is visible

        Looks :

        I dont need to explain the looks part - One of the best 125cc bikes manufactured by Indian manufacturers

        Delta Edge Styling :
        The delta edge styling of the Jet planes - are intimated in flame
        The tank - the bikini fairing - the silencer pipe - has this intimation

        COntroversies :
        Flame would have been a biggest HIT unless the Spark Plug controversy with bajaj wouldnt have been there

        The only one Spark Plug - that made the whole production Dumb - and still this affects the name of flame

        Here comes the pics with some discriptions

        Well the Black Flame is the new addition to the Flame

        The stickering just resembles the Stunners - and yes - it looks really different
        and a good head turner

        The red stripes in the Alloys - are not not STOCK



        The front view - just looks like a modified ZMA - without the front fairing
        The Head light does its jobs - Pilot lights are differently placed - but does good



        The Tail reagion is also good - the same as that of RTR's but lack of LED's
        THey said it as a Dual LED Light
        But the fact is there is only one LED - but the console is been modeled to show it as Dual LED
        The grab Rail is the good - part - the RTR's grab rails are joined here


        The Digi console is the simplest of all - not as simple as that of XCD
        The bright Orange light at the back
        The console has
        1 - CLock
        2 - Trip meter
        3 - ODO
        4 - IMI
        5 - Fuel Level Indicator
        6 - Service Time indicator
        7 - Neutral Indicator
        8 - Turn signal INdicator
        9 - Low Fuel indicator
        10 - Speedo in Analog( Look at the RED margins for an 125cc )



        The disc does its Job - and bites effectively - the tyres are 90 - specially for DISC Version



        The Unique silencer - first time for Indian Bikes it looks like the same of an Hayabusa - but it sounds effectively and sometimes the Grunt varies between that of RTR and that of Star - cannot predict


        The really helping part in Flame
        The desighner Tank has a good space to hold the goods in it.
        It can hold three coke tins or many small items
        I used to store my Cooling glasses in it and the Books
        Though it has meinimized the Tank size to that of 8 litres - it didnt affect anyone
        The lock for this box is been integrated in the Bike Lock

        Here comes the review

        1 - The Seating position is so straight and brisk - the seats are so - soft and doesnt pains your back
        2 - The handle bar is so big - and effective handling is also good
        3 - The tyres Grip is good - same as like that of RTR
        4 - THe head light is good - and helpfull in dark nights
        5 - The Pilot lights are bright enough and battery operated - switch the Ignition key and the light glows
        6 - The horn is like that something Bad - and i changed it to that of the Air horns
        7 - Turn lights are really good - and that one integrated with the Tank - really turns heads to the Turn lights
        8 - The alloys are good - nothing to say about it
        9 - The engine sounds good and something smoooooooth
        It sounds the same in all gears - i havent crossed more than 70 in her - and in all speeds the sound is smooother - and good
        Mileage : It gives about 55 - 60 KMPL in Traffic conditions and in High ways it gives about 70 or near by it

        Well I belive this is enough to desribe to Flame - and - yes i would like to see some flame owners in this forum

        This is the first time the Black Flame is been coming to INTERNET

          Nice review accompanied by pictures. It does seem that you are the only owner of the Flame, here in xBhp atleast, which is something to be proud of you see, since exclusivity is not easy to come by..

          P.S: What is the IMI thingy you mentioned in the digital console?
          :)

            Well thanks for it

            IMI refers to Instant Mileage Indicator

            It shows u a prediction of how much mileage ur bike will return - in the speed that your driving -
            for eg
            1 - go at 40 - it shows 102KMPL
            2 - go at 50 - it shows 85KMPL
            3 - go at 60 - it shows 60KMPL
            Its all predictions - but it depends upon the RPM

              Nice, little feature to play around with I say!

                  Yes Flame is a different kind of bike
                  Many questioned me where is the speedo cable to the Front Wheel

                  The answer is that - yes it is been connected to the rear end of the tyre

                  I also questioned the same thing to the TVS mechanics they said
                  The Front speedo cables often get damaged in Bikes - due to the fact it will subjected to movement - so the Connections are done - to the rear end of Flame's wheel - but i donno why this same tech - is not implemented in other products of TVS

                  It is suitable for those who does Wheelies - can check thier Speed

                  There is no Fuel Tap been provided

                  The reason is that Flame works in vaccum technology -
                  If an Fuel Tap is been provided- and if the tap is not been closed when the bike is not in use - this will affect the engines performance
                  So the fact no TAP is been provided
                  When you switch ON the Ignition key - you can here a sound - from the tank - it is where the fuel knob opens and fuel passes to the Carb

                  But this technology - doesnt proved good - this is the main reason for the cold start problems of Flame

                    Thunder bro, great snaps. Hats off! Good review. I am tempted to review my yo speed the same way you did. But I have to clean her up first

                      Nice review there Thunder! The flame surely looks a very interesting product.
                      But for the Spark Plugs issue with the Bajaj, it would have been a huge hit for TVS.

                          TVS Flame - problems and need suggestions

                          Hi Friends,

                          I had recently purchased TVS Flame and completed the second service. This is my first bike and bought this as it was looking good and I have been dreaming to own a bike for so many years, finally bought this bike.

                          I ride around 30 km per day, carrying a laptop on my back. I am having the following problems and request your valuable advices:

                          1. The suspension is very bad, and it's bumpy. I had complained to Service guys, but the problem is still there.
                          2. I also feel not that stable when riding this bike. Braking also not so great and I actually felt down once.
                          3. I don't ride on much speed, and my avg speed is around 50 kmph. I hear lot of noise from bike, like some parts are getting removed.

                          Also, I want to enhance this bike with few modifications and request your advice:
                          1. Can I upgrade my rear-wheel to a wider one and if so, what's would be correct size?
                          2. I also, like to put some cosmetic changes and request your advice on that too.

                          Friends, this is my first post and great appreciate your valuable suggestions.

                          Mods: I have searched for my above queries and could not find much information specific to Flame. Hence, request you to approve this post.

                          regards,
                          kp

                              Hei - i belive there is a Flame Ownership thread already active

                              Merging this thread with the ownership thread will be better

                              @mods : How about this idea
