With the festive season fast approaching, TVS Motors has launched a dual tone scheme of the Star City+ at Rs 52,907 (ex-showroom, Delhi). A first for the commuter bike is the combined braking system for safety, which the company calls as ‘Synchronised Braking Technology (SBT)’. In terms of styling, it gets the TVS chrome 3D labels on the tank, a new Grey-Black dual tone paint scheme, black coloured grab rails and dual tone mirror covers. Mechanically, the bike remains the same. Power comes from the same 110cc, single cylinder, air cooled unit which makes 8.3bhp and 8.7Nm and comes mated to a 4-speed gearbox.
The Star City+ range starts at Rs 46,053 for the kick start version, going all the way to Rs 52,482 for the dual tone variant. The latest variant is the top-specced one with the ‘Synchronised Braking Technology’ and it sits above the dual tone version. The TVS Star City goes heads up against the likes of Bajaj Discover 110, Hero Passion Pro and Honda Livo, which retail at Rs 51,674, Rs 53,050 and Rs 56,980 respectively. All prices are ex-showroom, Delhi. None of its rivals here get the combined braking tech and TVS Motors has become the first company to introduce the system in the 110cc motorcycle segment.
