: my father is using tvs victor gl 110cc from 2004.. he drives the bike only at 40kmph.. i started using it from only 2011.. the bike stills runs smoothly.. there is no noise from engine in all gear transmissions which are smooth.. i ride at max 60kmph which i feel is the max speed the engine runs without any strain. beyond that the engine starts giving a sound which is due to overspeeding.. i am not complaining here.. this is a bike meant for mileage not for power and pickup.. the bike serves that purpose by still giving a mileage of 60+kmpl..
regarding the starting problem mentioned by r.venkatramanan posted on 15/04/2006, i would like to say that he is correct in saying that the engine goes off when throttle is given immediately after starting... this can be rectified by leaving the engine in idling for 30sec and then give one high throttle and maintain at a low throttle for 15sec and then the engine is ready to shift into gears..
all in all the bike is great even after running 55000km. it depends on the riding speed and keeping the engine free of dirt,mud and greasy collection of dust because the engine needs to dissipate heat as fast as possible.. i would recommend water wash instead of just air blowing for all bikes. dont worry, the engine is water-tight.. it only takes some time to start and become heated after a water wash.

: I'm driving a Victor GL since 2006. My bike has been driven 34500kms till date. I've faced no major problems with the bike till now. I get an average mileage of 65kmpl, in city. I've taken it to a top speed of 90kmph, and I'm sure it can go further. Complains: Headlamp is not good. It neither gives me good visibility, nor does it make vehicles coming towards me comfortable. I've tried replacing the bulb, but none of the bulbs are a good fit for the reflector, not even the TVS original bulb(which for some reason costs Rs244, very expensive for a bike in this segment).

: Till 2006 it was running well, giving an avg. of 50 kmpl.
Since Dec.2006, it developed a starting problem, it was given thrice for
repair and each time they had kept it for two to three days, yet it
continues to have the same problem.
: Thursday, June 10, 2010 at 05:55:31
: Hi all, I am using Victor GL of 2003. My dad used it till
2008. I am using it from then. I am getting average of 65 - 74 kmph. Good
points: Best millage for me, good grip while riding,low servicing cost.
Problems are : No pick up, suspensions are bad, back ache for long drive.

: TVS Victor is an extremely excellent bike. I bought bike on
19/11/2003 and it is still running now(20/01/2010)in an excellent condition
and I am getting 68+km/l on an average in city run till now(20/01/2010).No
Maintenance cost required except change of engine oil(only castrol activ
4T)at every 4000 kms & I have never change or repair any parts, for eg.-
tank, sprocket of chain ,both tyres, clutch plates shockabes, silencer etc.
except brake shoes.It has excellent fuel effiency and power + pickup was
very good. Here many people had written that it was not good,BUT it was not
true,it has excellent engine performance & there is no knocking or noise
in the engine even after 6+years. Its depends on you that how will ride and
keep your bike. It is even better bike than PULSAR(which only has big tank &
nothing else as its give only 40 km/l on an average)or hero honda bikes(as
there is no perfect balancing in the bike and weight in the bike, its like
bicycle for 5 yrs kids). I LOVE MY BIKE VERY MUCH AND I HAD BOUGHT THIS
AFTER BOOKING & WAITING FOR TWO MONTHS, when it downs the sell of
splendor & passion. Overall,"CARE YOR BIKE LIKE YOUR CHILDREN, KEEP
AND RIDE IT SMOOTHLY & CAREFULLY , SERVICE IT AT REGULAR INTERVALS",at
last then your bike gives you "MORE SMILES PER HOUR"

: MY VICTOR GL 2002 HAS CLOAKED 22000KMS. I FEEL THE POWER OF
THE ENGINE IS NOT 100% OUTPUTED INTO BIKES POWER . I HAVE PROBLEM WITH
STARTING TROUBLE .HEAVY DAMPING OF FRONT SHOCK ABSORBERS. TOO NOISY AND
VIBRATING ENGINE. IT GIVE 45 KM MILEAGE.
: Tuesday, September 22, 2009 at 07:29:51
: I got the Victor GL in 2004 sept. I have got the average
mileage 50 to 55 KMPL. Before i was doing regular servicing and was getting
the mileage of 50 but now (say 2 yrs) i was not doing service as
requirement. Just changing the engine oil after 3000 or 4000 running. and
still getting the same avegare 50. so why i will do the service
Till now my bike meter shows the 50,000 KM and i am satisfied with the
engine performance in terms of money. (Till date engine has not open) only
changes 3 times cluch plates (1 time from showroom and another 2 times
local) and 2 times chain spockets.
The bike is very sleepry even in the sand and little water.
One thing i have noticed in the bike if i runs the bike 2000 after oil
change and service my bike goes upto 100 KMPH. Belive me and its true.
OverALL, Bike is good if you run it 50 to 60.
Very careful on rainy day and sand and water.
Very economical bike. You do not need to open the engine upto 80,000 km.
just change the clutch plate and for me engine oil change after running 3500
Not for long drive. very painful at back.
I Generaly runs the bike at an avegare speed of 70 to 75 KM and getting 50
kmpl. If i runs the bike on 50 to 60 still i am getting same average.

compared to other bike companies but TVS has more safety features. As I m

please change tyres as they are slippery even in sand and water in road
please avoid using breaks in such an event, it will skid. Never change the
handle bar , u are sure to lose the balance the vehicle.It is giving 60 kms
/lt now i had shell out 3000k to change the piston head , still back fire`s
: Wednesday, December 17, 2008 at 06:09:37
: i got tvs victor gl in 2000 i think, overall its good, but
engine is very hard some times even in long roots it is not a smooth riding
bike seats are cery comfortable, but u can feel the strokes at yr palm,i
recommend to everybody "don't at all give servicing in the company
service centres." it's horrible services they provide you, i think its
better to get services with some outside mechanic with good knowledge &
skills & at last he must be prompt in his work. that's enough i think

: I bought my tvs victor gl in 2003, first three years it's
good in all aspects like mileage and performance. But after three years it's
giving me all problems. Now it's giving me only 42 km per liter and pickup
also gone. Very horrible even after repeated services. What to do? i never
buy tvs product again. very bad product. When i complained about my bike
problems in authorised service centers while giving to service they r unable
to rectify even single problem. Very very bad bike

: Most of these reviews are only rubbish. the bike's overall
performance is very good . engine is completely refined and provides
effective fuel efficiency and pickup as compared to splendor,passion. even
at speed of 70+ the vibrations are really comparable with other bikes of
this segment. i m using it since 4 yrs and it never troubled me. it has
clocked 35000 km but engine is still to its performance. and 1 more thing is
that the shockers are very good and bike's riding is very comfortable... i m
completely satisfied with this product..);--)

: Its an awesome bike. TVS Victor GL is my first bike and I
am still riding it so comfortably since June 17th 2003 (YES 5 YEARS and 5
MONTHS). I get 62km/l on an average till now. Maintenance cost is very
very low compared to any bikes of Bajaj,Hero Honda or Yamaha. TVS spare
sparts are also comparatively cheaper than rest. I am a happy owner of
a stylish,good looking good mileage bike. Seat capacity is very spacious for
2 some. I see many ppl have written their bad experiences with this bike.
Let me tell you, everything depends on a person's luck for everything. I
maintain my bike very well and never over speed(until necessary while
overtaking). I purchased this bike at the time when Bajaj
introduced their first Pulsar bike series. I got TVS Victor GL, mainly due
to lower on road cost price(then 42k),low maintenance cost and less spare
parts cost. oh well,"LOVE YOUR BIKE AND THE BIKE WILL LOVE YOU TOO".
: Friday, October 03, 2008 at 06:34:26
: My TVS victor gl is a very good bike and comfortable, but
off late the rear shock absorbers are not responding as it should. But over
all its a real good bike, till now 6yrs it hasnt given me any problem
: Friday, September 26, 2008 at 03:24:42
: I bought a TVS Victor in 2002. So horrible and poor
quality. 1. It misfires or back fires. 2. Clutch problem- not solved even
after spending 2500 rupees. 3. Tank rusted within 3 years with a lot of
holes. 4. Rust is every where. 5. very slippery tires. 6. In-effective
shokes 7. Meter strucks too often. 8. No pulling power in lower gears.
Please never ever go for such a poor quality bike. Never believe TVS. It
doesnt have any quality. If u dont have a problem then U are lucky. But if
any problem, no one could solve it. Because of manufacturing defects and

: Bought TVS Victor in 2003. Big disappointment. Bike
backfires despite regular service at authorized service centers. Tank
developed holes within 4 years, required replacement, and had to do with
green tank instead of black, which was not available. Fuel efficiency never
above 50kmpl despite riding at 40kmph and regular service and checking of
air pressure. All chrome parts corroding despite me living inland. Overall a
disaster to stuck with it. You are unlikely to get a decent resale.
: Sunday, August 31, 2008 at 06:14:24
: The biggest mistake i made is by Purchasing TVS Vitor GL in
2003. The Problems in this are 1) Mileage Problem > 25 Km per Litre 2)
Fuel tank has Numerous Holes (Bad Quality) 3) Clutch Plates Need to be
Changed every 5 Months 4) No Pickup, 5) If Throttled More , Speed Starts
Decreasing. 6) Maximum Speed 60(With loud Noise) Good Thing to know- 1) I am
Still using it with all these problems as a Donkey

: I bought TVS victor in 2002, I am very much upset about its
average, I never get average more than 50 Kmpl even with proper maintenance
and servicing. Now I found one more problem....The petrol tank is
leaking....I confirmed with many mechanics and they told me that many TVS
Victor bikes are having the same tank leaking problem.

if u will go to d point of pickup. It is not so good but engine performance
is awesome. But 110 cc is not a good one in duralife engine . Overall is
very good . It goes off if we ride it on particular gear for 5-10 min.

: Well as for me i have a tvs victor from 2002 july(lot
13)..overall performance average..tank is of bad quality material .if ur
victor is of blue color then it has sure to develop the tank leakage
problem. the engine is good only upto first 25000 kilometres..later u have
to spend money on its overhaul etc...unlike the bajaj and herohonda...the
service centers also average. moreover after riding this bike for 5
years..the engine developed seirious problems ..stalled. now under repairs
with a big hole in my pocket upto 8000/- yes 8ks i had to shelve out to get
it repaired and start running again....so i have decided never ever to
purchase a tvs product again and not to recommend it to anyone else

: I found that tyres are too much slippery and you need to be
very careful while driving not only in rainy season but also when there is
some amount of water or sand on road. Besides this average never crossed to
50 Kmp. Also speed never goes beyond 65 kmph. If you go beyond that by
giving full accelerator, due to light weight, it starts flying in air

: I bought a Victor GX on 1/1/2004. In the past 2.5 years i
never touched the milage more than 58km/l with speed petrol. I made
servicing at time but the performance is not good of this bike as claimed by
company. The services from the dealer are also not satisfactory.
: I can just say great average(65)after 3 yrs, great
speed(touched till 90kmph), good looks(better than splender,passion), good
value for money(i bought this bike only for 40000)...overall u can say total
: I had bought Victor GX on 11/2005 earlier the mileage was
good but as 2nd free service was done the milage went down and the bike used
to stop abruptly in the middle of the traffic. Overall the performance is
not upto the expectation. the company should look into the problem at the
: This bike sucks to the core.. my engine got sized twice..
Milage is very very poor.. ples please never buy this bike..
: I bought this bike in April,2005.From the beginning itself,
it has some technical problem in the engine like reverse spark when
releasing the accelerator. I think, that dealer(chatrapati TVS, PUNE) has
given me one defect piece. So many time, i went to that service center, and
they are claiming everything is fine. Local mechanic was able to find the
problem. Working fine. Now, again from one month onwards it"s started
giving problem. Vehicle is giving jerk when accelerator is in low rising. It"s
behaving like when petrol is not available to engine properly. AT the same
time, VT-i indicator is glowing. Mechanic cleaned the carbourator(forming
sulphide in carbourator). He changed spark plug. He changed Electric coil in
the engine mentioning it as weak. Still, the problem doesn"t solved.
Riding comfortness and fuel consumption is good.
: I bought a Victor Edge 125 in Jan 06. Its overall
performance is good. Gives milage of 50 in city and 58 on highways (SPEED
PETROL). Even after a run in period of 1300 km the bike seems to vibrate
after touching 55 Km/hr, on highways which doesnt feel very good. Suspension
and brakes are excellent.
: I bought GLX with disk past one year. It has good features
1. i was facing problem with mileage of 50-55 kmpl with speed petrol but
now i m getting 65-70 kmpl in city & 70+ kmpl on highway.
2. brakes are good enough with rear of 130mm drum and amazing disk brake of

design and well balanced tubular frame.
4. headlight is good comparative its segment. In night it gives fantastic
5. great riding comfort. i drove nearly 300 kms non stop from jaipur to
delhi with a small break of 10 mins. there was no backache,pains or
But this bike has problems like
1. starting trouble in winters as it takes nearly 3 min. to warmup.
2. get adjustment of sprocket chain very frequently.
3. not satisfied with pickup being 10 bhp and high torque.
4. availability and cost of spare parts in market.
Although, i m fully satisfied with this bike & always recommend others
who wants to buy in 125cc segment.
