The TVS Star City+ was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2014 in February this year.

Using the same platform as that of the TVS Phoenix 125, the Star City+ gets its power from a 110 cc engine, the same motor employed by the Wego and Jupiter scooters. However, engineers have tuned this engine for better power and torque, and the Star City+ outputs 8.3 hp at 7,000 rpm and 8.7 Nm of torque at 5,000 rpm (on the Wego this engine produces 8 hp and on the Jupiter 7.88 hp). A 4-speed gearbox is connected to this engine.

The regular Star City, which also uses the same engine, produces 8.18 hp and 8.1 Nm of torque while achieving a manufacturer claimed fuel efficiency of 83.9 km/l.

Feature wise, the Star City+ gets a semi-digital instrument cluster, a stainless steel muffler guard, chrome finished handlebars, colored shock absorbers, electric start, alloy wheels, power/economy mode, service indicator and a dual tone seat.

Apart from the Star City+, TVS will also launch the more powerful Scooty Zest by the end of this year.
