TVS Motor Company on the occasion of Holi introduced a new dual-tone colour option – Pearl Blue-Silver – for its commuter motorcycle TVS StaR city+. The colour will be available in both drum and disc variants. The motorcycle comes with LED Headlamp and USB mobile charger. The prices start at Rs 65,865 for the drum brake variant and go up to Rs 68,465 for the disc brake variant. (Both prices are ex-showroom, Delhi). The Star City Plus was updated to MY2021 earlier this month with TVS’ ET-Fi tech which the manufacturer says accounts for 15 percent better fuel efficiency.
The Star City Plus is powered by a 110cc single-cylinder fuel-injected engine that outs out 8.08 bhp at 7,350 rpm and 8.7 Nm of peak torque at 4,500 rpm and is paired with a four-speed gearbox. The Star City Plus has a claimed top speed of 90 km/h. Suspension setup includes telescopic front fork and 5-step adjustable rear shocks. The motorcycle rides on 17-inch wheels shod with tubeless tyres.
