Whats so special about it? It's just indicators mounted on the fuel tank sides.

In the modern parlance trafficators are just another name for indicators.

The cool feature is that there's a cavity of a reasonable size on top of the fuel tank in which you can keep a pint bottle of your favourite drink

So trafficator is just another name for indicators . They advertise as if they have invented something new.
Wonder how many more gullible are fooled by TVS marketing

Forget the marketing part; the bike looks good. Loved the console (looks like of yamaha superbike one I think; coz of the color )

Its got the engine designed by AVL right? 3 valve?

Yeah the engine was designed by AVL.

The bike looks okay from the front, but looks weird from behind.
