TVS has launched a special Chocolate Gold edition of the Star City+ at Rs 49,234 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The bike at present is available only at selected TVS showrooms across the country. While mechanically the bike remains the same, it gains a new paint scheme which looks a little premium, according to TVS.
The Chocolate Gold Edition gets a matte brown, gold and tan coloured body with golden coloured alloy wheels. Unlike the standard variant, it comes with black coloured rear suspension springs and blackened muffler just like the gold edition launched earlier.
Powering the bike is the same 109.7 cc single cylinder air cooled mill churning out 8.30 bhp of maximum power at 7,000 rpm and 8.70 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 rpm. Mated to this is a 4 speed constant mesh gearbox.
Here’s what Mr Arun Siddharth, Head of Marketing (Motorcycles), TVS had to say on the occasion:
“We’re proud to launch the premium, new variant of TVS StaR City+ in a captivating combination of gold and Matte Chocolate brown. The new Chocolate Gold Edition leverages the popularity of the matte brown colour while taking the ante of style further up with gold, to provide a stylish yet bold look to the motorcycle.”
Star City+ boasts of a fuel efficiency figure of 86 kmpl thanks to Molycoat piston which helps in reducing friction. The standard kick start variant of the bike is priced at Rs 44,000 (ex-showroom, Delhi). The pricing of this chocolate gold edition brings it precariously close to the Victor which is just a few hundred bucks more expensive and if you are confused between these two, prefer the Victor!
