With the launch of its new 110cc commuter motorcycle 'Star City Plus', TVS Motor Company is expected to add an additional five per cent market share to its existing nine per cent in the two-wheeler segment in Tamil Nadu, a top company official

said today.

Priced at Rs 44,326 for electric start and Rs 41,836 for kickstart model, Star City is derived from the 'Ecothrust' engine of TVS Phoenix, the 109.7 cc power mill of the vehicle provides an ideal combination of smooth performance, power and fuel economy, he said.
