TVS Motors has launched the Star City+ Kargil Edition at Rs 54,399 (ex-showroom, Delhi). That’s a premium of around Rs 1,000 over the SBT variant. The name is derived from the historic Kargil war that took place between India and Pakistan back in 1999. As a result, its design inspiration comes from the rough terrains and snow-clad peaks of Kashmir and it features a new green dual-tone paint scheme with unique camouflage graphics. It even gets a “Kargil Emblem” at the back. The bike will be offered in three paint options: white, green and blue.
Prior to this, TVS also introduced the Star City+ with the safety net of Synchronised Braking Technology (SBT). Essentially, it applies equal braking force to the front and rear brake for optimal braking performance. The version also received a couple more updates like dual-tone mirrors, a 3D chrome emblem, a revised flyscreen design and blacked-out grab rails. The bike is priced at Rs 53,364. Aside from this, both versions remain unchanged.
The TVS Star City+ is powered by a 109.7cc, single-cylinder Ecothrust engine paired to a 4-speed transmission. The motor makes 8.4PS of power at 7000rpm and a peak torque of 8.7Nm at 5000rpm. It employs a single cradle frame with telescopic forks and twin shocks at the rear with five-step adjustability. Braking duties are handled by 130mm front and 110mm rear drum with SBT.
Here’s the official statement from the manufacturer.
