TVS already has a BS6 compliant 110cc engine that is currently powering the Radeon motorcycle from the brand's portfolio. The updated BS6 engine now produces 8.08bhp of peak power at 7,350rpm and 8.7Nm of peak torque at 4,500rpm. The engine will continue to come mated to a four-speed gearbox. The same engine is expected to make its way to the Victor BS6 motorcycle as well.

Braking duties on the motorcycle will be handled by drum brakes at both ends as standard, with optional disc brakes at the front on the top-spec variant.
