EXCLUSIVE: TVS XL100 BS6 Price Revealed, Might Not Be Fuel-Injected
The mobility product may just get an e-carb to meet BS6 norms
- Currently, only the Heavy Duty series has been updated to BS6 compliance.
- Price premium incurred is not a lot.
- We do not expect any mechanical changes.
We were not quite sure whether the aged TVS XL100 would be capable of undergoing the transition to adhere to BS6 emission norms. But TVS has managed to bring out the XL100 Heavy Duty iTS BS6 at Rs 43,044 (ex-showroom Delhi). Alongside the standard bike, TVS will also sell the ‘Special Edition’ variant, which now retails for Rs 43,804. Both these trims come at a premium of Rs 2,990 and Rs 3,340.
Given that the price buffer is minor, TVS is unlikely to fit the XL100’s 99.7cc air-cooled engine with a fuel-injection system. This ideally means that TVS could be going down the e-carb way like the Bajaj Platina 110 H-Gear BS6 and the Bajaj CT100 BS6. Currently, the BS4 motor pumps out 4.35PS and 6.5Nm.
The step-through design will be kept intact. Meanwhile, the Special Edition gets a different colour. To find out how different the variants of the XL100 are, check out our story here. We do not expect any changes on the mechanicals front. We await further details of the XL100 BS6 from TVS.
