TVS Phoenix 125 Discontinued in India

TVS Phoenix has been officially discontinued from the Indian market as the company willingly halted the India sales for their only 125cc motorcycle. TVS didn’t update the bike to meet the recent BS4 emission norms. This move leaves TVS with a big gap between 110cc and 160cc motorcycles in India as others like Hero are working hard with the new Glamour to create a dominating product in this segment. TVS Phoenix was launched in India in 2012 and never was a favorite product among the buyers. It simply just sold 94 units in March 2017.

The initial sales targeted by the company were 20,000 units a month while it was hard to sell more than 1000 units for the Phoenix in India. A very surprising fact for the same was that it came with a digital instrument console, better suspension and the most affordable price tag, even with a disc brake on-board. After all this, TVS finally decided to halt the sales for the Phoenix while its global popularity did not let it come down from the production line.

A worthy replacement for TVS Phoenix has not yet been announced by the company. It was last sold for INR 52,594 for the drum brake variant. Most manufacturers offer a 110 cc motorcycle at this price. Phoenix used a 124.53 cc, single cylinder engine that was good for 10.8 BHP at 8000 rpm and 10.8 Nm at 5500 rpm. It weighs just 114 kg and delivers excellent performance for its segment. Riders could get around 600 kilometers of drive range from a single tank refill.
