TVS XL100 Mileage
The TVS XL100 has a top speed of 60km/hr and a mileage of 67km/l.
As everyone is heading towards making more affordable scooters, TVS will also add more mopeds to add more variety for rural buyers. With a powerful moped, it still becomes a cheaper and more rugged option for rural buyers to stick to moped than to a scooter. Then there are the larger wheels of the moped and lighter body weight makes it a better option. The XL100 will have a bigger fuel tank, stainless steel brake cable, easy centre centre (for which a patent is pending) and even kick-start.
TVS XL100 Price
The new TVS XL100 is priced at INR 34,000 (on-road, New Delhi). TVS will be soon launching it in other parts of the country as well. As this is more affordable than the scooter, TVS will be looking at a more affordable version for commute.
