TVS Motors invited for a first-hand experience of the TVS Star City Plus.
TVS has worked on its 110cc EcoThrust motor to make it more tractable in stop-go conditions and it shows in the manner the Star City+ pulls effortlessly from low speeds in higher gears without stressing the motor.
Star City+, which is available in kick start and electric start variants, doesn't come with front disc brake, not even as an option.
The Star City+ will run 85km to a litre of petrol, which is almost 5 per cent more than the earlier model.
The Star City+ gets the 109cc, 4-stroke, EcoThrust engine which comes with improvements to boost fuel efficiency and still offer decent power.
TVS claims an impressive fuel efficiency on the new Star City+ of 86 kmpl although the mileage in real world conditions will be lower.
This 4-speed gearbox is precise and butter-smooth, with a light clutch further sweetening the experience.
The instrument console is nicely style and a huge departure from the plain unit of previous bike and has an analog speedometer and an LCD displaying digital fuel gauge, odometer, trip meter and basic and warning tell tale lights.
The 4-speed gearbox is expected to take this bike from 0-60 kmph in 8.1 seconds.
Maximum power of 8 bhp at 7000rpm, and peak torque of 8.7 nm at 5000 rpm offers good city riding dynamics especially at low speeds.
The alloy wheels and engine painted in black add a pinch of sophistication to the motorcycle.
