The sportier version of the Star City definitely grabs eyeballs. The entry level commuter bike is now feature laden and has the right combination of efficiency, styling and ergonomics. The mechanical changes promise greater efficiency and the host of equipment provides great comfort and convenience while the great colours on offer are exciting propositions. Though it has a sportier look, it still is a bike for the mass consumer market that has clean lines and conservative styling and graphics. The positioning of the foot pegs, handlebars and seating position offer comfort even on long rides.
It is currently priced between Rs 36, 880 and Rs 46, 074 (Ex-Showroom Price, New Delhi) but the prices may vary from place to place.
The clear lens turn signals, alloy wheels and electric starter are standard facets while the tumble and swirl induction affords far greater mileage with the company’s claim of 95 kmpl. It has a typical upright riding position and the handle bar position does not stress the wrists. The electric start can ignite the bike in any gear and sporty tail lamp completes the athletic look when combined with the racy front cowl and subtle but sportier graphics. From the side, it has a flowing design and seamless integration of all the aspects.
The 100 cc displacement of the bike is carried out by a four stroke air cooled single cylinder engine. It dishes out 7.6 bhp @ 7,500 rpm and 7.8 Nm of torque @ 5,500 rpm. The 4 speed contact mesh transmission is configured for linear power delivery. The TVS Sport is not really a racer but more of a commuter that is sporty to look at. However, it can give that burst of power when required like overtaking or climbing.
The well configured suspension setup with a telescopic hydraulic in front and a 5 stage adjustable at the rear gives a decent ride in most conditions. The seating has been designed for comfort and the rider will not get tired with the well positioned handle bar. The pillion also gets the grab rails that add to the safety. The head lamps provide sufficient illumination after sunset.
