The high grip tread button tyres offer a good grip on all road and the hi-grip rubber compound is great at traction and braking. The easy access choke lever position helps save effort and maintains engine efficiency, especially in heavy traffic conditions where riders have to repeatedly switch the bike on and off. The presence of Dual tone seat and colored shock absorbers with 5 different setting make the ride smooth and comfortable. The company believes that the Ecothrust motif on the exhaust muffler etched with special heat resistant materials gives the bike's tailpipe a dash of style.

There's a muscular tank, honeycomb textured grills, 3D StaR city+ emblem, newly designed tail lamp and aluminium grab-rail - among the features that stand out in the looks department of the all new 2014 Star City Plus.

With above features and 83.9 kmpl mileage offering at a price range of 44,000, I am sure it will be a threat to other bikes in this price range.
@Sarathkumar Chandrasekaran • 06 May, 2014 • 1 like Its great to have more options in 100 -110cc segment so that customers would have good comfort in selection of bikes.Mileage would attract more customers while style and look also quite promising.
@S Tiwari • 07 May, 2014 • 1 like TVS company struggling with sales,this is good attempt to regain lost ground,Tamilnadu where lot of craze was there for TVS, I seen people buy more of Honda Unicorns and CB Shines than TVS.TVS is selling just 68000 bikes per month in March 14 as compared to Honda which sold 1,90,000,Bajaj 2,70,000,Hero more than 5 lakh bikes source Motorbeam site.So the company is sinking and trying to come out of it .Let us see what happens when you are competing with Honda,Suzuki and Yamaha ,and Bajaj who are advertising a good mileage but low quality products.Hero strugling to come out of Divorce with Honda

@Vikram S Bargah • 19 May, 2014 Despite of some very good models (in all aspects Power, Mileage, Price) TVS still lag to be the customers first choice (Except 150 - 180 range Apache - which has gain much interest).

think they need a combination of more powerful engine (I have experienced TVS Star making bursting sound like crackers while riding) more sporty looks, better & more number of service centers . plus some better marketing,then they can attract customers
