Engine, fuel efficiency, and handling

TVS Flame : The TVS Flame in makes do with a single plug because of the controversy the use of dual spark plugs, is a Bajaj patent. The engine in use is a cc unit which is derived the TVS Victor GLX. This makes 10.5 Ps of power the torque figure reads as 10 Nm.

It is ot a 4 speed gearbox. The gearbox is but occasionally clunky. The bike is tuned mainly for the city and hence feels out of breath on the The engine, is very unrefined and not the one in the now defunct GLX.

Post 40 too many vibes play sport. The Victor has a good quality however the handling is by the not so grippy tyres. On more once occasion our testers managed to keep themselves in a corner.

The top speed for this if you can muster it, is 93 kmph. The TVS Flame 56 kmpl in the city and 62 kmpl on the On the braking front, the Flame a lot to be desired for, even the disc brake.

The in gear accelerations for this also means that in 3rd gear in traffic at speeds of 20 kmph also make without having to shift more often. The top speed is 97 with that typical smoothness thrown in. On the ride the bike is on the softer side and well however it is the handling which is a bit disappointing.

The bike wallows while one it into a corner and its typical nature also doesn’t confidence on the highway. The bike shines with its fuel figure of 61 kmpl in city and 69 on the highway. Typical slow Splendor stopping means the Splendor is marginally better the Flame.
