Posted on: Jul 6, 2015 - 10:50pm IST

Only the second two-wheeler to achieve the landmark.

To mark the occasion of the sale of 1 crore TVS XL Supers, TVS is launching a special edition variant which comes with a few cosmetic markers to show the landmark achievement.

TVS XL Super Heavy Duty 1 crore screengrab
A screengrab of TVS’ advertisement announces that the TVS XL moped has sold over 1 crore units.

The 2-stroke moped is now only the 2nd two-wheeler in the country to go past the 1 crore unit mark, the first being the Hero/Hero Honda Splendor. While the Hero Splendor has appealed to both rural and urban consumers, the TVS moped has had most of its loyalty from the hinterlands of the country.

Once laws were passed to ban 2-stroke vehicles from most of the country, TVS’ market for the moped shrunk dramatically to rural India alone. Despite this, the moped still finds itself in the top 10 list of two-wheelers sold each year. The moped, as per the official website, is also exported from India.

The Special Edition XL Super carries a chrome-finished grab rail and an exhaust guard that hosts a 1 crore celebration sticker. Two new colours, Silver Grey and Titanium Grey, have also been introduced.

The TVS XL Super carries a modest 70 cc engine that puts out 3.5 hp at 5,000 rpm and 7 Nm of torque at 3,750 rpm which is mated to a simple one-speed gearbox. The moped retails for INR 34,058 (ex-showroom, Chennai).

    TVS should thank god for influencing the rural mass to buy this outdated product. Why they can’t spend couple of crores to improve the look to 21st century automobile? This is not a good image for a company supposedly going to manufacture and design future small displacement BMW bikes. When are they going to learn any lesson from the European manufacturers? Where is their continues improvement in product design that they talk about?
