TVS Raider 125 Racing Special Edition launched in Colombia with cool upgrades
TVS Motor Company has launched the Raider 125 Racing Special Edition in Colombia, bringing some visual flair and new features to the 125 cc commuter motorcycle. The TVS Raider 125 Racing Special Edition gets cosmetic upgrades including the new California Gray paint scheme complemented by red pinstripes on the fuel tank and red-painted alloy wheels. Bringing a nice contrast is the tail section that’s finished in dark grey on the motorcycle.

The model also comes with a digital console with Bluetooth connectivity, which lets users connect with the TVS app for vehicle telematics, geofencing and more.
