TVS Star City Plus Special Gold Edition launched at Rs. 48,934
The upcoming festive season has made many companies introduce limited edition models in India. In line with this, TVS has just launched the Star City Plus Special Gold Edition at a price tag of Rs. 48,934. Not only is this just another limited edition, but this model also commemorates the first anniversary of the Star City.
Like just any another special edition, the Gold Edition comes with upgrades on the feature and visual domain only. The bike is done in a special white colour that gets golden graphics and alloy wheels finished in golden as well. The gold theme is carried further to a ‘Bike of the Year’ badge in addition to a golden 3D logo and a golden coloured TVS badging on the front visor. The motorcycle’s shock absorbers are done in red and the seat features a contrasting red coloured stitching. On the feature front, the commuter motorcycle gets a USB charging port under the seat and new tubeless tyres.
Mechanically, the bike has a telescopic suspension up front and 5-step adjustable hydraulic shocks at the rear. Retarding power comes from 130mm drums at the front and 110mm drums at the rear. Power comes from the current 110cc, single-cylinder engine which comes mated to a 4-speed gearbox. The engine churns out 8.4 PS of power at 7000 RPM and 8.7 Nm of peak torque at 5000 RPM.
Returning a claimed fuel efficiency of 86 km/l, the TVS Star City Plus Special Gold Edition has been given a more premium pricing of Rs. 1800 over its standard counterpart. The new colour scheme and added features make the Star City Plus a good offering in the very populated commuter segment. It must be said that the paint scheme has been tastefully done. Anyhow, it remains highly unlikely that the premium charged for the same will help in bringing more customers to TVS showrooms.
