TVS has just introduced a brand new colour scheme for its ever-popular commuter motorcycle, the Star City+. Dubbed Chocolate Gold Edition, this new theme uses two colours, matte chocolate brown and gold. The new edition also has a hint of tan in the decals and some plastic portions of the centre panels, and comes with gold wheels to match. This Chocolate Gold Edition commands a premium of Rs 300 over the version of the Star City+ equipped with electric start and gold alloy wheels. It is priced at Rs 49,234 (ex-showroom Delhi) and is currently available at select TVS showrooms across the country.
This new confectionary themed colour scheme adds to the two other premium schemes already on offer for the Star City+, namely matte titanium grey and gold. Speaking at the launch, Arun Siddharth, head of marketing, motorcycles, TVS Motor Company, said, “We believe colours are a testament to the rider’s personality and play a significant role in the purchase decision. With this new edition, we aim to reach out to the stylish yet pragmatic riders who are looking for a dash of style in their ride experience.”
Mechanically, there’s no change on the Star City+. It still sports the tried-and-tested 109.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor that makes 8.4hp at 7000rpm and peak torque of 8.70Nm at 5000rpm. This engine, mated to a four-speed gearbox is known for its refinement and the company claims a mileage of 86kpl.
