The TVS Sport has lived up to its tag line, “Mileage ka baap”. TVS Motor Company announced that this 100 cc motorcycle has set a new record of ‘Highest Fuel efficiency delivered by a motorcycle on the Golden Quadrilateral’.
The record was registered in India Book of Records and Asia Book of Records. Pavitra Patro achieved the feat by riding the TVS Sport on the Indian Golden Quadrilateral. Patro covered a total of 6,377 kilometres through tough terrains and the surge of monsoon and registered an on-road mileage of 76.4 km/l. The ‘Golden Quadrilateral’ connects India’s four major metros – Delhi (North), Kolkata (East), Mumbai (West) and Chennai (South). The ride, which commenced on 31 July, concluded 20 days later, on 19 August 2019.
The 99.7 cc air-cooled, 2-valve Duralife engine on the TVS Sport makes 7.5 PS of peak power at 7,500 rpm and is linked to a four-speed transmission. The claimed fuel economy, as per TVS Motor Company Limited internal test, stands at 95 km/l. The motorcycle comes with an Econometer feature. The budget-friendly hardware setup includes drum brakes on both wheels (130 cc front/110 mm rear, conventional telescopic forks at the front and five-step adjustable, twin-sided rear shock absorbers). The motorcycle comes with a 5-year warranty.
Speaking about the achievement, Aniruddha Haldar, Vice President (Marketing) Commuter Motorcycles, Scooters & Corporate Brand, TVS Motor Company, said:
TVS Sport entering the record books for the highest recorded on-road mileage, is an outstanding feat. The 25 lakh TVS Sport riders have, over the last ten years, stood by its mileage performance. This ability is now acknowledged by Asia Book of Records and India Books of records as well. We congratulate Pavitra Patro for weathering the 20 days, 6,377 kilometres ride of the Golden Quadrilateral to achieve the highest on-road mileage recorded by a motorcycle.
