The 220cc TVS Zeppelin was unveiled as a concept model at the 2018 Auto Expo. The showstopper falls in the cruiser category of motorcycles, targeting buyers who are in the need of a sports cruiser. After several delays, the earlier reports suggested the brand to launch the Zeppelin in India this year though there has been no information received on the same as of yet. Here are 5 must-know facts about the much-awaited TVS Zeppelin cruiser motorcycle.

5 Must-Know Facts About 220cc TVS Zeppelin

1) First TVS Cruiser Motorcycle – TVS is known for the production of commuter bikes and sportbikes, leaving the cruiser segment empty from the past three decades. The Zeppelin 220 is a typical cruiser motorcycle as it features low seat height, forward-biased foot-pegs, and smaller-than-usual rim size. The cruiser rivals none other than the Bajaj Avenger 220 and Suzuki Intruder 150 while the Jawa Classic 300 and Royal Enfield Thunderbird 350 are other indirect rivals for the upcoming motorcycle.

2) New Age Design – The extended fuel tank, sharp tail section, and the raised pillion seat add modern lines to the package. The engine bay is neat, perfectly-filled and highlighted with silver inserts. TVS showcased the concept version of the bike with a belt-drive system, making it the first motorcycle of its segment to carry the feature. The headlight is heavily inspired by a typical modern street machine.

3) Key Components & Engine Details – The 220cc TVS Zeppelin is equipped with premium 41mm USD front forks, full-LED headlight, belt-drive, and grippy Pirelli Sport Demon tyres. The addition of a sporty exhaust system finished in black shade, and the independent tyre hugger makes Zeppelin an eye-candy for the bike lovers though, the production model is expected to skip some of the premium parts to keep the costs under check.

The Zeppelin is expected to be equipped with a BS6-compliant, 220cc, liquid-cooled, fuel-injected, single-cylinder engine. The same can either be derived from Apache RTR 200’s engine or made from scratch for torque-biased performance.  Mechanically, the concept model is good for 20 HP @ 8500 rpm and 18.5 Nm @ 7000 rpm. The engine is mated a 5-speed gearbox. The unique electric-boost system of Zeppelin can help riders achieve more mileage per refill though, the system is not yet confirmed for the production version of the motorcycle.

4) Instrument Console – The console on the Zeppelin is semi-digital, divided through physical breaks for easy differentiation and clean layout. The console has an analogue tachometer, a digital speedometer, an odometer and a fuel gauge. In comparison, the Bajaj Avenger is equipped with an all-digital console while most of the Royal Enfield motorcycles are equipped with an analogue console. As per one of the recent reports, it is being rumoured that the production-spec model of the Zeppelin with come featured with an all-digital instrument console in addition to getting smartphone connectivity via Bluetooth.

5) Launch Date & Expected Price – The official launch of the 220cc TVS Zeppelin is expected to take place by the end of this year or in early 2021. As far as the pricing is concerned, TVS is expected to launch the cruiser with an approximate ex-showroom price tag of around INR 1.40-1.50 lakh in India.

TVS Zeppelin 220 is one of the most anticipated motorcycles from the brand that was initially unveiled as a concept at the Auto Expo back in February 2018. The showstopper falls in the cruiser category of motorcycles, targeting buyers who are in the need of a sports cruiser. After several delays, the earlier reports suggested the brand to launch the TVS Zeppelin cruiser bike in India this year though there has been no information received on the same as of yet.

We expected TVS Motor to unveil the production version of the Zeppelin 220 concept at the Auto Expo 2020 which was held in February this year, but it didn’t happen as TVS decided to skip the auto show. It is now being rumoured that the next TVS-BMW bike would be based on the Zeppelin and the brand would launch the same by the end of this year. It may or may not carry the Zeppelin branding, but the end product would most likely be a 200cc-segment premium cruiser motorcycle.

Mechanically, the TVS Zeppelin concept was showcased with an RTR 200-inspired 220cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that was good for a maximum power of 20 HP at 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 18.5 Nm at 7000 rpm. The engine on the concept bike was mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The production model of the TVS Zeppelin-based cruiser motorcycle will feature a BS6-compliant engine while offering powerful performance and getting a price tag of around INR 1.40 lakh (ex-showroom).

In terms of looks, the upcoming TVS cruiser bike will feature a bulkier fuel tank design which will be further accompanied by clip-on handlebars while all other body panels are expected to be equipped with premium plastic cladding. The brand showcased the Zeppelin cruiser motorcycle concept with Upside Down (USD) front forks and an HD camera back at the Auto Expo 2018 though the production variant is expected to skip on the rather premium bits to keep the costs under check. The concept bike was showcased with a digital-analogue console but the production model is expected to come equipped with an all-digital instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity like the current-gen TVS Apache RTR 200.

The glorified components will turn decent when the TVS Zeppelin cruiser bike will enter the final production stage. Till date, as not even a single test mule has been spotted testing on the Indian roads, it seems like the bike will launch by the end of 2020 or in early 2021. The production version of the cruiser motorcycle is expected to get front and rear disc brakes along with dual-channel ABS for added safety.

Some reports even suggest that TVS Motor is working on two variants of the Zeppelin 220. One version is expected to carry a normal petrol engine while the second version is expected to feature a petrol-hybrid setup. As all the rival products are conventional petrol-powered cruisers, the upcoming bikes based on Zeppelin are expected to carry an integrated starter generator-equipped engine for saving fuel while idling.

The concept model of Zeppelin was showcased with a belt-drive mechanism though, it may not be on offer on the production-spec model as it will raise the cost of Zeppelin-based products by a huge margin. If and when launched, the cruiser will rival the Bajaj Avenger 220 and Suzuki Intruder 150 while the Jawa Standard 300 and Royal Enfield Classic 350 are other indirect rivals for the upcoming cruiser motorcycle.

TVS Zeppelin is one of the most anticipated motorcycles from the brand that was initially unveiled as a concept at the Auto Expo 2018. After several delays, the earlier reports suggested the brand to launch the Zeppelin 220 cruiser motorcycle in the year 2020 though there has been no information received on the same.

TVS Motor had officially backed out of the Auto Expo 2020 where the brand usually reveals some of its exciting concepts as well as the anticipated production variants. As per the current status, the launch of the Zeppelin now seems to be rather uncertain.

Some recent reports suggest that the brand might launch the motorcycle around mid-2020 though there has been no official confirmation as of yet. It is also being rumoured that TVS may also shelve the plans of launching the cruiser in the Indian market.

Powering the TVS Zeppelin concept is an RTR 200-inspired 220cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is good for a maximum power of 20HP @ 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 18.5Nm @ 7000 rpm. The engine is mated a 5-speed gearbox.

If launched in the production state, the TVS Zeppelin is expected to feature a BS6-compliant engine while offering powerful performance and getting a price tag of around INR 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom).

In terms of looks, the TVS Zeppelin cruiser features a bulkier fuel tank design which is further accompanied by the clip-on handlebars while all other body panels have been equipped with premium plastic cladding.

The brand showcased the Zeppelin 220 cruiser motorcycle with Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) with assist motor and an HD camera back in 2018 though the production variant (if launched) is expected to skip on the rather premium bits to keep the costs under check.

According to the latest buzz, the production model of the much-awaited cruiser, the TVS Zeppelin 220 is all set to be unveiled early next year. Since the brand has decided to skip the upcoming Auto Expo 2020, the launch of the cruiser was considered uncertain though, the recent reports have confirmed the launch of the motorcycle to take place in January 2020.

The TVS Zeppelin concept was showcased with futuristic technology at the Auto Expo 2018, and getting the same in production form may not be feasible. Zeppelin will also introduce a new 220cc engine to the TVS lineup, producing 20HP of maximum power and 18.5Nm of peak torque. The engine could be a re-bored version of the Apache RTR 200’s motor.

However, the practical use of part sharing process may not allow the brand to introduce the 220cc engine as their 200cc motor is equally effective and already in mass production. The chances of Zeppelin switching to the Apache-sourced engine are equally present.

The glorified components will turn decent when Zeppelin enters the final production stage. As not even a single test mule has been spotted till date, it seems like getting first images for the production version of the cruiser is still some weeks away.

The console offered to the cruiser is a semi-digital unit while the present-day trends hint at a completely digital unit like the Apache RTR 200. The use of USD front forks and other premium components is also likely to be skipped in favour of more conventional options.

TVS will try its best to price the new Zeppelin 220 around INR 1.30 lakh (ex-showroom) while equipping it with dual-channel ABS for added safety. After the launch in India, the motorcycle would be competing with the likes of the Bajaj Avenger 220 Cruise, Avenger 220 Street, and the Suzuki Intruder 150.

With the recent setback faced by the auto industry that led to a major decline in the sales, the upcoming Auto Expo will see the participation of only 3 major two-wheeler brands while the 19 other have decided to skip it. Since TVS Motor is no longer a part of the upcoming Auto Expo 2020 where it was expected to launch the production version of the much-awaited Zeppelin 220, the launch of the cruiser is now uncertain. The brand is yet to comment on the change in plans and there is no recent news on the new date for the launch of the TVS Zeppelin.

It is being said that TVS Motor is putting a lot of effort in the Zeppelin project while the testing of the motorcycle is expected to commence shortly on the Indian roads.

The initial unveiling of the power cruiser at the Auto Expo 2018 showed the motorcycle with an Integrated Starter Generator (ISG) with assist motor as well as an HD camera. Though, in order to keep the production cost under check, the brand will be skipping certain features for the production version.

As per the reports, the TVS Zeppelin will get major body parts inspired from the Apache RTR 200 including the headlight, instrument console as well as the switchgear. The motorcycle will feature an LED headlight setup with premium plastic cladding for the body panels.

The concept motorcycle was equipped with golden USD front forks to give it a distinguished look though, the brand is likely to replace them with conventional forks to meet the design requirements of every individual plus to keep the production costs in check. The rear end of the motorcycle will get an adjustable monoshock absorber.

The production version of the motorcycle is expected to get dual-channel ABS for added safety. The concept motorcycle was showcased with a contemporary brown and black colour scheme, which gives it a well-finished look while the retro-inspired headlamp adds on to its persona.

Mechanically, the TVS Zeppelin will be powered by a 220cc single-cylinder, air-cooled motor, inspired from Apache 200’s engine. There is no information on the exact specs of the powertrain though, it is expected to generate higher output in comparison to the Apache RTR 200 4V.

The brand will most probably equip the power cruiser with a BS6-compliant engine. Being positioned in the TVS portfolio above the Apache 200, the TVS Zeppelin is expected to get a price tag of around INR 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom).
