TVS Motor Company has released a teaser image of the Star City Plus with the tagline – 'We’ve got a surprise for you. Stay Tuned.' It could be a special edition model of the motorcycle with a few cosmetic upgrades and some additional features over the regular model.
While it is not official, the new 2021 TVS Star City Plus might receive new dark color schemes, tank pads, and a front disc brake. Besides this, the mechanics of the bike will remain the same. It will continue to utilize the existing 109.7cc air-cooled Eco Thrust engine with TVS’s ETFi technology, mated a 4-speed gearbox. This engine produces 8.19PS at 7,350rpm & 8.7Nm at 4,500rpm and can achieve a top speed of 90kmph.
The hardware of the bike will also remain the same, which includes a telescopic fork at the front and a 5-step adjustable hydraulic twin rear shock absorbers setup. As far as the braking is concerned, the current model of TVS Star City comes with a 130mm drum upfront and a 110mm unit at the rear. However, the upcoming variant/special edition of Star City could get a 240mm petal disc at the front. The TVS motorcycle will continue to offer an all-LED headlamp, a bikini fairing, USB charging port, combined braking system (CBS), an analog-digital instrument cluster with Econometer, service reminder, and a malfunction indicator.
Expect the new Star City Special Edition to carry a premium of around Rs 3,000 over the regular model, which currently retails at Rs 65,865 (ex-showroom). In the 110cc commuter bike segment, it will compete against the Hero Passion Pro, Honda Livo, and Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear.
