The Verdict:

In this competitive two-wheeler market and heavy Indian street traffic, I think TVS Radeon can be one of the best commuter motorbikes. It is light on pocket and offers smooth and safe driving.

However, I found one drawback which disappointed me is its outdated design. Also, after-sales maintenance for the new Radeon can be a little pricy as TVS parts are costlier than Hero.

Still, overall Radeon is a well-built and well-engineered motorbike at a reasonable price.
