What happened to TVS Predator bikes ?

 

With the face lifted GLX, TVS has incorporated revisions made in the Edge like the rear gas shock absorbers besides redone graphics. As was the case last year, TVS also showcased a couple of concepts, which sadly will not be introduced in the Indian market. The Isotope 200, a 200cc supermoto with its futuristic lines and a beaky front, is a concept designed for recreational purposes. The bike uses disc brakes at both front and rear, and inverted telescopic shock absorbers up front. The predator in the mean time was n’t meant to follow any particular design blueprint. It’s solely a manifestation of the designer’s idea.

It sports a skull shaped headlamp, nicely carved out fuel tank and well integrated tail. The complete feel of the bike is that of a sporty cruiser. The concept employs a 500cc V-twin. The star range of the company’s entry level motorcycles with star city taking centre stage, in addition to motocross machines complete with dummy riders.

What’s still unclear is what happened to TVS Predator bikes ? appears TVS made a roll back, will these bikes hit the market anytime soon or in future ?
