Something about Ronin
The TVS Ronin is powered by a new 225.9cc, single cylinder, oil-cooled, fuel-injected engine. TVS could have gone with an engine used in the 200cc Apache, but they decided not to and rather went for a brand new engine. The TVS Ronin has a character of its own is not something what a typical Apache offers to you. The engine offers a 20.4 PS of maximum power @ 7750 rpm while the peak torque is 19.93 Nm @ 3750rpm. The 225.9cc engine is paired with a 5 speed gearbox and the presence of Assist and Slipper clutch makes the ride smooth.
The dimensions of the TVS Ronin are 2040 mm x 805 mm x 1170 mm (length x width x height). The wheelbase of the Ronin is 1357 mm while the seat height is 795 mm. The ground clearance is 181 mm while the kerb weight is 160 kg. The fuel tank of 14 litres feels sufficient for everyday rides.
The Ronin is supported by a ‘Double Cradle Split Synchro Stiff Frame’ along with a 41 mm USD suspension at the front. The rear suspension of the motorcycle is handled by a mono shock with 7 step adjustable preload.
