TVS Ronin: Widespread underpinnings throughout variants
The three variants of the Ronin share the identical engine, primary chassis, suspension and braking parts, in addition to the 14-litre gasoline tank.
The Ronin is powered by an all-new 225.9cc air- and-oil-cooled, 4-valve, single-cylinder engine making 20.4hp at 7,750rpm and 19.93Nm at 3,750rpm. In contrast to the one discovered on the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with which the Ronin engine shares its primary structure, the main target right here is tractability and torque within the low and mid-range. Two driving modes are on supply, Rain and City, altering throttle response and braking. Mated to this engine is a 5-speed gearbox with a slip-and-assist clutch.
The chassis housing the torque-focused engine is a double cradle body, suspended by parts derived from one other TVS providing, the Apache RR310. The 41mm fork and 7-step preload adjustable shock is similiar to the unit discovered on the Apache RR310, though the internals have been tweaked to swimsuit the easy-going nature of the Ronin.
The 9-spoke alloy wheels driving on bespoke block-pattern tubeless Remora tyres with sizes of 110/70-17 on the entrance and 130/70-17 on the rear are similar throughout all three variants. The braking parts are shared as properly, with a 300mm disc on the entrance and a 240mm disc on the rear.
All LED lighting, a silent-start system, in addition to TVS’ GTT (Glide By way of Know-how), which prevents stalling in low-speed eventualities, are commonplace throughout all variants of the Ronin. A USB charger will be bought as an adjunct for all three variants of the Ronin.
