The colour variant gets a black and red paint finish with premium 3-D chrome badging. The grab rail is finished in black as well. The mechanical underpinnings of the bike is the same as the standard variants.

Instrumentation includes an analogue-digital combo cluster, with an Econometer for an optimum mileage-power balance. There is a service reminder as well. The Star City Plus tips the scales at 109 kg, kerb.
