The 2015 TVS Sport commuter motorcycle claims a fuel economy of 95kmpl and the base variant is priced at Rs 36,880 ex-showroom Delhi.
Refreshing its commuter range, TVS Motor Company has launched an updated version of the TVS Sport. The 100cc motorcycle comes with improved mileage and some new features. The new TVS Sport now claims to offer fuel economy of 95kmpl “under standard drive cycle conditions”, which is over 7kmpl more than the older model’s claim of 87.7kmpl.
According to an official statement released by TVS Motor the reason for this improved fuel economy is the TVS Sport’s DuraLife Engine. It continues to be powered by a 99.7cc single cylinder motor, good for 7.5PS peak power, and torque rating of 7.5Nm, which comes mated to a 4-speed transmission.
The engine has been worked up on to reduced friction, which helps in improving the overall milage of the motorcycle. Besides this, the company has used chrome plated piston rings and roller cam follower in the DuraLife Engine which also lower engine friction. Refined ignition timing complements the overall low dry mass to provide improved mileage.
Apart from better mileage, the 2015 TVS Sport is equipped with electric start which cranks up the motorcycle in any gear, aluminium grab rail, chrome plate on the exhaust and a sporty instrument cluster.
Speaking about the launch, K N Radhakrishnan, President and CEO, TVS Motor Company said, “Today’s consumers are looking for stylish, exciting, new and high quality products which offer good value. In keeping with our promise to deliver products that would delight our customers, we have added new features and have tuned the engine such that it returns better fuel economy. TVS Sport is a well styled, feature rich product which delivers high on both mileage and durability, making it one of the best value-for-money brands in its segment.”
The new TVS Sport comes in five colours including red, black, white, blue and mercury grey with sporty graphics. The motorcycle has been priced aggressively at Rs 36,880 ex-showroom Delhi.
