TVS divulged the Draken X21 which is the first liquid-cooled 250cc street fighter concept motorcycle, which looks stunning but has still not hit the production. According to ancient Greek mythology, the word “Draken” was described by a hundred headed dragons armed with serrated teeth soaked in fatal poison.
The TVS Draken X21 concept motorcycle has a futuristic appeal thanks to its asymmetric headlight design with LED headlamp element and daytime running lights, reversed free flow exhaust system, off act rear monoshock suspension structural sub-frame and active matrix digital instrument console. Other striking visual features include muscular fuel tank with scoops, meaty swing arms and humongous times. The liquid cooled engine of Draken X21 has a very nearly under the engine and coming out ahead of the front brake lever. However the exhaust tip is strategically placed away from the rider’s foot. The company calls this system a high performance reverse free flow exhaust system.
