For the season finale of The Grand Tour

Commuter motorcycles are...well…used to commute basically. But for many folks in Africa and India, carry anything and everything under the sun on these puny little machines. Free from stuff like a roof, windows or doors, you can carry some surprisingly tall, long or wide objects on a motorcycle.

How about long poles for drying fish?? Weird right? Not according to Richard Hammond.

For the season finale, the chaps of the motoring show Grand Tour have embarked on a journey to end world hunger (Just the small village of Bingo in Mozambique they mean). And Richard Hammond has opted to travel 200 miles transporting fish on a 99cc TVS Star HLX across Mozambique.

Check the video to see how much fun they both had.


TVS made the Star HLX exclusively for the African commuter market with a not-so-impressive 7 hp of power. And it costs only $800 off the shelf.
