TVS Star City Plus might not be a new name but possess some segment-leading features and also some that are the least. The bike currently comes in the BS6 format and lots of new changes as well. There are a few things that you should know about this bike before hitting to buy a bike.
The design depends mostly on you but Star City Plus is mostly a likeable motorcycle. It comes with LED headlamps which is the segment-first feature. The graphic design on the motorcycle also suits well for the body. The bike has been offered with five colour options so that’s a good thing. The seat cover is also somewhat similar to the Apache RTR 160 4V which makes it look slightly sporty. Nevertheless, the bike is a simple yet good looking motorcycle.
The area where you might get disappointed is power. The engine is a 110 cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected unit. It produces just about 8.08 bhp max power and 8.7 Nm o peak torque. The engine is currently the least powerful unit in the segment, however, it doesn’t feel a lot of difference in the real world. The engine comes with a four-speed gearbox, still, a five-speed gearbox is always welcomed. However, we would like to point out the good point of the engine which is its refinement. TVS has set a benchmark in terms of refinement for almost every segment of bike they offer.

Star City Plus Hardware
Talking about the hardware, it comes with telescopic suspension at the front and twin 5-step adjustable hydraulic shock absorbers at the rear. The braking is done by the drum brakes for both the wheels and misses out on front disc brake option. TVS Star City Plus sits on 17-inch wheels and tubeless tyres. Nevertheless, the bike is quite competitive in terms of hardware.
The TVS Star City Plus comes with pretty modern tech features such as a semi-digital instrument cluster, combined braking system and mobile charger. The speedometer also includes the Eco and Power light indicators which are quite handy to get better mileage. So the bike is pretty much upmarket in terms of features.
