The popular Star City commuter has enjoyed considerable success in the commuter segment. To commemorate its first anniversary, the TVS motors has launched a special variant called the Star City+ Special Gold edition. This limited edition comes with design elements, features and new paint job to separate it from the other variants.
Design and Features
As the name suggests, gold colour is featured heavily on the bike. The Star City+ comes with a white paint job with gold graphics on it and also gets gold finished alloy wheels. Other changes include a gold coloured TVS logo on the visor, beige side covers and stitched red seats. The notable features include
The changes on the Star City+ Special gold edition are purely cosmetic. There are no changes to the power train. The bike continues to be powered by a 109.7cc, air-cooled engine that develops a peak power of 8 bhp at 7500 rpm and a peak torque output of 8.1 Nm at 5000 rpm. This engine is mated to a 4-speed constant mesh gearbox.
The TVS Star City+ Special Gold edition is priced at Rs. 48,934 (Ex-showroom Delhi), which means that it will cost close to Rs. 2000 more than the standard Star City. As the festive season approaches, many manufacturers are trying to refresh their products by launching their products with cosmetic upgrades. We are not too keen on that as we feel that the updates have to be more than just skin deep.
