Available in Uttar Pradesh and Tamil Nadu.
TVS Motor Company has launched TVS XL 100 in Tamil Nadu at INR 29,539 (ex-showroom, Tamil Nadu). The model was introduced first in Uttar Pradesh last October.
The TVS XL 100 is powered by a 99.7 cc single-cylinder air-cooled four-stroke engine that produces 4.2 PS at 6,000 rpm and 6.3 Nm at 3,500 rpm. The moped can reach a top speed of 60 km/h, and is claimed to return a mileage of 67 km/l under simulated test conditions.
The XL 100 4-stroke is essentially the existing TVS XL Super when looked at, as the notable distinction is only the powertrain. It has a dry weight of 75 kg, a payload of 130 kg, and a fuel tank capacity of four litres.
The XL brand of TVS is a unique product that claims its own segment, and is quite popular in terms of sales, especially in rural markets. The XL Super nameplate crossed the milestone of one crore cummulative sales last year. It was conceived by T S Srinivasan (TVS Motor’s late Chairman) and Venu Srinivasan (the current Chairman), in 1980. The TVS XL range of products is the most affordable two wheeler lineup with IC engines in the company as well as the Indian market.
