Hosur based South Indian bike maker TVS has just launched the new TVS Star City Plus in the commuter end of our fast growing Indian Two Wheelers market. The new TVS Star City Plus Prices in India start at INR 44,000 (ex showroom, New Delhi). The new TVS Star City Plus was first showcased at the New Delhi Auto Expo 2014, which was held earlier this year in early February. We have already put this bike through its paces and you can check out our comprehensive TVS Star City Plus Review HERE.
The recently launched Star City Plus shares its platform with the TVS Phoenix 125 and is powered the same 110 cc single cylinder carbureted engine that powers the Wego and Jupiter automatic scooters. For the new Star City Plus though, this motor has been retuned to deliver better power and torque. The Star City Plus boasts of a max power of 8.3 hp @ 7,000 rpm and peak torque of 8.7 Nm at 5,000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a four speed manual gearbox.
The recently launched Star City Plus will pay the perfect elder cousin to theStar City, which while using the same engine, produces a lower max power of 8.18 hp and lesser torque of 8.1 Nm. Claimed fuel economy for the new bike stands at 83.9 kmpl and the Star City Plus boasts of features like a semi digital speedo console, a stainless steel muffler guard, chrome finished handlebars, colored shock absorbers, electric start, alloy wheels, power/economy mode indicator, service indicator and a dual tone seat.
