TVS Phoenix 125 Rating
As like the standard motorcycle, TVS Phoenix is also has almost good look and the new version is seems a bit sporty. So, no offense about the looks and style of this machine which is considerably alright. Besides, it is quite comfortable to ride according to the users opinion. As a standard category bike, it also causes no pain even in long ride. However, it’s brand value is completely proved and spare parts are also available in the market in Bangladesh. Due to better handling and security, company has released disc and drum version of this machine. But, it’s price is comparatively a little higher which should be taken care.
