TVS Star City Alloy Wheels Review

03 Nov, 2015 11:00 AM

Quick Review by Maxabout Team

Star City is currently the largest selling bike of TVS in our Indian bike market. The bike has been doing really well for the past few years. Now, looking at the new stylish competitors, TVS has re-launched their reliable product. Let’s figure out the new changes.

Design and Style

Its grown-up appearance has always been a big advantage for this bike. TVS Star City looks well composed in comparison to its rivals. The bike now receives new cosmetic changes while its basic design remains intact. Star city now follows the all black theme with fascinating dual tone graphics. Its front forks, fender, engine, brake pedal, muffler with heat protector and rear grab rail are now painted in black color which complements its all color schemes. The front fender now features cool graphics on it which makes this bike look aerodynamic. The revised tinted visor and headlight adds charm to this bike with its new clear lens indicators. The cowl receives new graphics and the face of the bike now looks different than before. Its fuel tank and side panels are the same but visually look fresh thanks to the addition of new graphics. There are no major changes at the back as you can still notice its familiar tail light. The rear fender is short and wide carries a set of side indicators and displays the number plate and reflector light on it.

Instrument Console

TVS has worked on the instrument console of Star City as now it comes with a standard backlit feature. The twin circular dials of this bike carries analogue Speedometer and Fuel gauge respectively. The dial with speedometer also houses an analogue odometer while you can also notice other indicators in this instrument console. The bike also gets a mobile charging point which is a unique feature in itself.

Engine and Gearbox

TVS has powered Star City with a 4-stroke 110cc engine. This engine is mated with a four-speed manual gearbox with all gears down shift pattern. This air-cooled engine generates a peak power and torque output of 8.2 bhp and 8.1 Nm which arrives at 7500 and 5000 rpm respectively.

Acceleration and Performance

This engine is certainly better than any 100cc bike available in India. It’s more powerful and responsive than any of its competitors. The early torque and power production of this engine plays a vital role in the performance of this engine. Its ample amount of torque reduces the gear shifts and you get a stress free ride in city traffic. The gear ratios are also short which makes it feel peppier than others. The throttle response makes it an enthusiast. The bike does 0-60km/hr in less than seven seconds. The light weight of this bike helps it to get a respectable power to weight ratio and that’s quite evident on highways. It can go pass the speed of 95km/hr but from here on, this engine turns really noisy. There are very less vibrations in this engine and it feels better than Bajaj Discover 100 in terms of engine refinement. In fact its gear transitions are also very smooth and better than many other bikes but we don’t think TVS can beat the Honda bikes. Their refinement level is far better than Star City but that’s only evident at high speeds.

Mileage

Expect Star City to return a fuel efficiency of around 60km/ltr in city conditions. The bike saves more fuel on highways and may return you a mileage of around 65-68km/ltr. The company claimed mileage of Star City is 83kmpl under standard test conditions.

Comfort while Driving

TVS Star City is a commuter bike with front set foot-pegs and wide handle bar. The handle bar is placed a bit low which gives comfort to your shoulders on long journeys. The wide and long seat of Star City can easily be occupied by two adults. This seat is well stuffed and positioned. The knees lie around its full size fuel tank while you get a good palm grip on its handlebar. The bike features an electric start for you comfort which avoids kicking frequently.

Storage Space and Safety Features

TVS Star City has under seat storage space. The bike comes with safety features like rear saree guard, front leg guard, pass button and powerful headlight.

Suspension and Brakes

The front suspension system of Star City still features telescopic oil damped forks but TVS has worked on the settings of its rear suspension. The bike gets first in its class rear shock absorber with ride switch. It has 2-way adjustable hydraulic rear shock absorbers which can be adjusted by the rider by a switch. The braking system of this bike still lacks an optional front disc brake. It features drum brakes on its both wheels. It has a front drum brake of 130mm while its rear drum brake is of 110mm.

Ride and Handling

TVS Star City is a very comfortable bike which offers commuters friendly ride and handling. It can be steered easily in city traffic and handles as per your need. Even on highways, the bike follows the command. It’s a light weight bike which can easily be controlled by the set of drum brakes. The suspension system of this bike is better than most of its rivals and manages to give you comfortable rides on our Indian roads. Moreover, its high ground clearance of 165mm makes sure that no high obstruction bothers you. The ride quality of this bike would have been much better if it had a longer wheelbase. The bike still lacks stability at high speeds due to its wheelbase of 1240mm. Things get even worse around sharp corners as its skinny tyres are unable to hold the road properly.

Shades

TVS Star City is available in six attractive shades: 'Electric Green', 'Bold Blue', Red Blaze, 'Gold Spark', 'Silver Strike' and 'Crimson Flash'.

Verdict

Its variant with alloy wheels and self-start is priced at INR 43.4K (ex-showroom, Delhi (approx., may vary)). Undoubtedly, this bike is a complete value for money bike. TVS has priced this bike way below its competitors like Hero Passion X-Pro and Honda Dream Yuga. The new variant has all essential features and looks better than before. Moreover, its fuel efficient engine is very responsive and commuter friendly. The new variant has improved significantly and we hope this bike to continue its golden run in our Indian bike market.

TVS Star city 110 CC 2013 model. Rear shock absorber with adjustment not functioning properly from the beginning. Not happy with it

I had purchased TVS STAR CITY SPOKE in Nov-2005, I got 84 KMPL average after completed 1st service. My daily average usage is 12-15 KM as i had completed 38000 KM since purchased. There is no often maintenance, i can say ZERO maintenance in other words. My so many relatives advices me to change or replace it by new one, but i does not want do so. It's really good performer, good looking and stronger bike. Its stronger being seen in advertisement riding of Indian cricket team on a single bike and leading by M. Dhoni.

I Have bought this bike on 19th Dec 2013 and completed first service.. I Must Say That Very perfect and Good Commuter Bike... It Gives Around 65KMPL in City Conditions.. We have went for road trip before first service around 200kms, it has given around 78KPML... That is huge... I Must Say that it is very city friendly Bike.. One thing we need to Mention that The Head Light of this bike is Absolutely Marvelous...

I have been using Star City since 2007 without any hassle. The bike now has run more than 56000 kms. Its very good, comfortable, almost maintenance free and fuel efficient. Only thing is that if any spare need to change, either you need to go to their authorised outlets or have to check 5-6 auto spare shops, spares availability is less as compared to Hero or Honda spares, which you can find anywhere in market.

My self Sandip Biswas. I have Star city. I have a major complain about this bike, actually bike is good but the service part of the company is very poor. And one think don't believe that the company gives you 5 years warranty Its doesn't. My bike has a service issue, actually a part has been broken but I did not get any replacement whether its just 4 months old. I dont know why should they do this but really I am suffering a big problem. And now I just decided to change the bike immediately. Now I am thinking that why should I go for this bike. My hardly request to my all friend please dont go for this bike if you want a better service. Many time a have lounged complain but no one response.

Hi Guys, I’m Anoop from Bangalore.TVS Star City 110 is an excellent bike. I have 2010 model, a purple color one . It has got a strong and powerful engine which is very reliable. The bike is compact but still gives the feel of a big bike. The self start has not given me any problem in the cold climate. But it’s better to use kick start if the engine is cold. It can easily catch up with few 125cc bikes like Honda Shine, Suzuki Slingshot and Hero Honda Super Splendor and Glamour siblings. The seating is very comfortable for city as well as long rides. You can easily control the bike even in high speeds even if there is negligible amount of vibration. The ride quality and handiling of this bike is simply superb. The top speed I have achived is 95kmph, fair enough for a 110cc bike. But it takes a hell lot of time to reach its top speed once it crosses 80kmph in the speedo. Normally I used to get a mileage anywhere between 58kmpl to 65KMPL (depending on the way I ride). It has even given me 75kmpl+ few times. After I bought a car (Chevy Beat), I did not take much care of the bike. Once when I checked the mileage recently it was giving a mileage only ranging from 47kmpl to 52kmpl. I took it to a mechanic to check on this. He did the right turning for the engine. I filled petrol for Rs 50 when it went to reserve. The amount of petrol filled was 0.68ltrs. It went for 54kms until it went to the next reserve. So the mileage would be 54/0.68, the mileage I got was 79.4kmpl without hampering the pickup of the bike. It has done close to 12000kms now. I have not spent much on the maintance part. Only regular oil change and service. Apart from that I have changed the front break shoe once and the rear tyre which is necessary as time passes. Overall I am very happy with this bike.

Hey karamchand, 


I think that u should must prefer bajaj discover 100 which gives a very good mileage of about 80 kmpl in cities and 85-90 on highways. and also its price is very low something around Rs. 45000. But the main problem is that it is not very reliable like hero honda because it is a Bajaj.

I am from Nashik, Maharashtra, working as a Marketing manager. I have to travel near about 100+ Kms daily. At present I am using Bajaj Excel Scooter and I am planning to buy a new bike, I am in confusion that in the market there are lots of brand which I should choose. I need a bike which should have good mileage, Bit powerful, Low maintenance cost, Spare part availability, Service. Also i dont want to invest too much on the bike. I am looking at the options like 100CC segment or 125CC segment. I am thinking about the following bikes: Yamaha CruxS, HH CD Delux,HH Passion Plus, Honda Shine, Bajaj XCD & TVS Star City 110. Among the above bikes, which one is good for me?
