TVS brand has become quite popular during the last couple of years and obviously the company wanted to leverage on the popularity ride. Almost 75% of the company’s bike sales come from the star brand. Yet another star that’s born recently is the TVS Star Sports that comes in 2 versions. The base version Sport comes in two colors; Carbon black and jet red, and alloy wheels. The deluxe version comes with fuel gauge and double-toned sporty chrome graphics in about 3 colors; black, blue and silver.
If you want me to review the performance of TVS Star, let me tell you that the Sport bike comes with 99.7cc engine and it gives a peak power of 7.5bhp. Similar to its older brother Star City the Sport comes with one down-tubed chassis and a four-speed gearbox. The suspension has the same looks as that of the Star City, but the rear one comes with 5 steps adjustable stroke that is just a little longer than the Start City. Sport comes with alloy wheels and what makes it different from City is that a new face-lifted silencer (a matte silencer and a chrome heat shield with dual pod cluster). I did review the other indicators of Star Sport and they come as usual with dome headlamp as well as 5 pilot lamps. (TVS reviews this feature to be one of the first in this segment).
Body panels and tail lamps received some tweaking to give sleeker and elegant appearance overall from rear. The fuel tank is sleek and the dual toned side panel makes it attractive. The vibration is still an issue that TVS may have to deal with seriously in the coming days to give any serious competition to the big names in the market.
So said, Star Sport basically is an economy bike targeted at the middle class masses. The price for either of the versions fall below the 40k mark. Additionally, TVS is offering a 5-year warranty on some parts of the bike. If you ask me a two-word verdict on my review, I would say that the TVS Star Sport is a style and sensible bike worth all money for the first-time bike buyers.
