Not everybody in India’s growing motorcycle market wants a bike that’s more powerful than they can handle. That’s good because TVS’ new bike, the Sport, isn’t cut out for the extreme mongers. Where it lies is in the hearts of those that enjoy a stylish motorbike with enough power to impress your peers.
As far as its looks are concerned, the TVS Sport has been dressed in dual tone color graphics. Meanwhile, the fuel tank of the TVS Sport is slight and the dual toned-side panel offers an attractive look. Moving on to the lights, the TVS Sport has been fitted with a multi-reflector clear headlamp and taillights that come with a clearer profile. The all-black style of the Sport also adds a look of aggression, and when combined with the graphics, makes for a bike that’s as eye-catching as it is mechanically capable.
Speaking of its performance, the TVS Sport is powered by 100cc, four-stroke engine that produces 7.8 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 7.5 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 RPM. Combine that with a 4-speed constant mesh transmission, a front telescopic hydraulic fork, a rear suspension with 5 stage adjustable shockers, and standard drum type brakes with alloy wheels and you have a motorbike that not only looks the part of winner, but performs like one too.

Indian bike maker TVS knows the value of introducing new models, especially in a market as big as India. That’s why for their 2012 line-up, TVS has developed a new variant of their sports bike range, called the Star City.
Don’t mistake it for a Honda or a Yamaha, despite what the overall look of the bike shows you. The Star City stands proud, thanks to a dual tone body color, a new headlamp, new indicators, and a choice of six different color options, ranging from Blue, Green, Red, Crimson, Gold, and Silver.
More than just its distinctive looks, the Star City also packs an impressive powertrain that features a 110cc CVTi engine and produces 8.2 horsepower at 7,500 RPM and 8.1 Nm of peak torque at 5,000 RPM.

TVS has a certain panache for building some very interesting bikes and it’s no more evident than their new Jive sports bike.
The styling of Jive is pretty impressive and it certainly belongs to the current generation bikes out on the market. The sleek, aerodynamic look adds some attitude to its profile while the added graphics, the dual stitch cover, and the black alloy wheels all make for a saucy road runner.
More than just its looks, the TVS Jive is also the embodiment of a people-friendly bike. Its simple controls allow even novice riders to enjoy it. The Jive is also powered by an impressive 110cc engine that comes with an innovative T-Matic technology and an automatic clutch that allows for easy drivability.
The most distinguishable feature of the Jive is the absence of the clutch lever, which gives a hands free gear shift experience. This motorbike can be ridden by almost all people who have a sense of balance since there is no need for manual clutch-gear coordination while they are shifting.
All told, the TVS Jive’s combination of looks, reasonable power, and drivability makes for a perfect recipe to satisfy its owners.

When the controversy between Bajaj and TVS came to an end with the new judgment and the agreement from the Madras high court for allowing the re-launch of the TVS Flame DS 125, it marked the first step in bringing the bike out on the Indian roads.
The TVS Flame DS 125 comes with a similar design and look of its predecessor with some modifications in the form of a new elegant black theme. But with its own styling cue, the TVS Flame DS 125 still carries a few features similar to its elder brother, the Apachi, including the design of the headlamp, fender, rear view mirrors, body colored shock absorber springs, and the special engine cowl.
Despite all that, the TVS Flame DS 125 is still as unique a bike as you can get on the Indian market, particularly because it’s the first motorbike in India that comes powered with a 3 valve CC VTi (controlled combustion variable timing intelligent) engine.
Other features of the TVS Flame DS 125 include a 240mm front disc brake, which is complemented with a unique triangular delta edge exhaust that delivers the smoothest sounds, lowest emissions, and also the most excellent performance. The TVS Flame DS 125 also supported by neatly – lockable storage, a water-bottled-sized storage in front of the tank, which will be useful for a rider’s everyday use.
