I have been riding this one since September 2016, for past 16 months, with 15000 kms on Odo. Bike is really refined and excellent to me in terms of performance.
But as we all know no bike in this world is 100% perfect, below are the cons / negatives I would love to point out, honestly from my heart, in order to help the future buyers to smoothen their decision making process on this bike.
> 2nd Gear is non-existent. I mean to say, when I suddenly slow down from say a 40-45 kph speed, and then try to build speed, 2nd gear doesn't help me, as it is supposed to do. My splendor used to pick up from second gear from a really slow speed say around 15-20 kph, when you slow down for something (without stopping / coming to complete halt or rest). Since New Victor completely goes lifeless in terms of pulling up in 2nd gear, I am forced to engage the first gear to build my speed, and I feel a very nasty jerk when doing that in 1st gear.
Otherwise all other gears are good. 1st gear is extremely torquey and feels good. 3rd & 4th gear are also enough powered. Sometimes I feel this bike could have had a 5th gear as well, since 40 kph is done with the engine speed at around 4000 rpm, and 50 is done at 4700 rpm.
It's an excellent city ride, but for the 2nd gear issue I am facing. Mileage is around 65 kmpl, which is pretty decent for a 110 cc and that too with 3 valve engine.
I avoid exceeding 50 kmph under any condition. 24 kms of my daily ride would be mid and high level traffic in Chennai and the other 24 would be a very free road, where my gear shifts would be pretty low and countable.
I maintain my bike with Vijai Motors TVS , Avadi - CHENNAI. Though the service quality is not that great, I have created a personal acquaintance with a mechanic there who takes satisfactory level of care in servicing my bike.
