The revised XL 100 will fuel-injected and will cost between Rs 3,000-3,500.
TVS introduced the 2020 TVS XL 100 BS6 series with prices from Rs 43,889 for the Heavy Duty I model. The revised XL100 is available in a total of three versions. So, the above entry-level model, the Hard Duty I Special Edition priced at Rs 45,129. And the Luxury I priced at Rs 45,459.
These costs are respectively Rs 3,000 and Rs 3,500 higher than those of their respective BS4 counterparts.
At present, the TVS website has given details of the Comfort I–powered by the same 99.7cc engine, with fuel injection only now. The peak production figures are 4.4hp at 6,000rpm and 6.5Nm at 3500rpm, and that extremely remarkable since these the very same numbers that the BS4-compliant XL100 engine recorded.
TVS also says that its fuel-injection system helps the XL100 to offer 15% higher mileage.
The revised engine also brought an improvement in weight. The BS4 Comfort weighted 84 kg (kerb), while the BS6 version weighted 85.5 kg (dry).
The XL 100 TVs and the CT100 Bajaj features
TVS XL is the most economical two-wheeler on sale in India and maybe even in the country, at Rs 30,490. Yet that is the case as it is now, and after the BS6 upgrade rolls in, the elusive price point does no longer exist.
Okay, only for Rs 3,500 more, you get the BS4 Bajaj CT 100. This happens to be the cheapest tuned motorcycle on offer. By the time you read this though, Bajaj will have already released the BS6 version of the CT 100 and it will cost more than Rs 6,000 more than the bike we used to ride.
The XL and CT 100 are the best of the cheap and robust engineering that India specializes in. And we just had to do something fun to celebrate these two amazing devices. Before they were taken out of service.
