    Default Scoop! New TVS step-thru 125 cc with Rear Disc Brake

    TVS Motors looks serious to launch a step-thru bike in India and no we are not talking about the 110cc Neo, this time. Avid BIKE India reader Vignesh Giridharan from Bangalore spotted a new step-thru bike being pushed to the limit by TVS test-mule near its Hosur factory and has shared all these photos of the bike with us.

    The bike has been christened as Rockz and has a gas-reservoir for the rear suspension with MIG inscribed on it and interestingly is equipped with rear disc-brakes! At first glance the new bike seemed to have a strong resemblance to the Neo but on closer inspection we noticed several new goodies and slightly different design features. The instrument cluster revealed that the bike had a four speed transmission and gear-shift indicator. Also, a choke just below the horn switch hinted that the bike was it was not equipped with fuel injected. But the biggest difference between the bike in the spy pics and Neo is the new bike sports a bigger, 125cc engine!



    Remember the goodies we mentioned above? The Rockz is loaded with amazing gadgetry like MP3 player, FM, complete with control buttons like play/pause, next/previous track. This integrated music system is located just below the handlebar, on the inside panel along with anti-theft security system. The tail-lamp seem to be LED and resembles the Apache RTR.


    With the help of Google, we found out that TVS sells the Rockz 125cc in Indonesia along with the NEO 110cc and Apache RTR 160cc. Looks like TVS is treading the unconventional path, as it recently introduced Jive - the first auto-clutch bike in India and now might be looking at launching the 125cc muscular step-thru Rockz!

    Nice.But i don't they will be launching it in India as there is virtually no market for it.

    PS:The thread title should read "Rear Disc Brake" not "Break"!!

    I don't think that they never tested it before

    Only Hero Honda can sell bikes where kick can potentially break foot rest , TVS does not have that loyal buyers.

    IMO it wont, the start lever is short enough to avoid the end can & bent enough not to hit the pipe from the exhaust port to the end can.
    The second pic being the reason for me saying this.
