TVS refreshes it Star City model for 2012.. also makes changes to its corporate logo
Amidst the hype and excitement surrounding the launch of the KTM 200 Duke and the unveiling of the Pulsar 200NS, TVS Motor had officially launched the 2012 update of its Star City model. Wrong timing?
The upgrades/changes are limited to a new dual tone color scheme and slightly redesigned headlamp visor. According to the company press release the bike will come in six new color combinations and the base version ( I am not aware how different is the base version from the ones in the photo ) TVS Star City 110cc starts at Rs. 38,650/- (Ex Showroom Delhi) with a five-year warranty.
According to TVS Motor, under standard test conditions the model gives a mileage of 83.9 km per litre.
