At the recently concluded Bharat Mobility Expo 2024, TVS showcased the flex-fuel-powered Raider 125 FFT.

The single-cylinder, air-cooled, 124.8cc engine of the TVS Raider has been retained for this new version of the motorcycle, and here too, it claims similar performance numbers – 11.2 bhp of maximum power and 11.2 Nm of maximum torque. However, with the new fuel flex technology, the engine can now operate on all ethanol and petrol blends from E20 to E85.
The overall design of the TVS Raider 125 FFT remains unchanged over the standard version of the motorcycle. However, it wears a new black and green paint scheme, along with green stripes on its alloy wheels. Even the rest of the mechanical hardware, including suspension, wheels and tyres, remains unchanged over the standard Raider 125.
The TVS Raider 125 FFT also comes with premium features like an all-LED headlamp and tail lamp, a full-LCD instrument console with Bluetooth connectivity and a combined braking system.
