Expected Launch Date: Jan 2017
The Draken-X21 concept titillated the visitors at the TVS exhibit during the 2014 Auto Expo, not just because of the beautiful model standing next to it, but also because of its radical design and the yummy engine specs claimed by the company. TVS Motor Company’s R&D team calls the Draken a ‘thoroughbred naked bike with aggression and attitude’. The Draken-X21 is supposedly powered by a 250CC short-stroke, liquid-cooled race derived engine that is expected to put out about 39hp of power and 23Nm of torque. The engine is expected to be mated to a 6 speed transmission.
The braking power will most likely be provided by front and rear disc brakes that would come equipped with ABS. The new motorcycle is also supposed to feature an under engine exhaust which, according to TVS, will provide better power figures without hampering the fuel efficiency. Other features that are likely to make it on the Drakex-X21 are aluminium trellis frame and mono suspension at the back in its production form – if hits the production line at all, that is.
