TVS Metro 100 Review
TVS is a leading Indian motorcycle manufacturing company which is very popular in Bangladesh as well. Though, still in India, Bajaj is dominating the market but in last year, TVS has got the most sold awards. Though, TVS is an Indian manufacturer but nowadays, their products are assembled in Bangladesh. Besides, recently a news has spread that TVS is going to start their production in Bangladesh and so, the cost of bikes will be reduced. One thing is common about the products of TVS which is the handsome mileage. Due to better mileage than Bajaj company, the demand of TVS products are increasing everyday. In Bangladesh, there are a lots of product available where some TVS Metro is one of the best in cheap price and great mileage. Though, there are two versions of TVS Metro are available where one is ES and other one is KS. ES defines the electric starting system and KS defines the kick starting system. Rest configuration are completely alike but due to the starting system, the price of the bikes are different. The price of Metro ES is ten thousands more than Metro KS. Now, let’s have a look below where the total specification of TVS Metro is listed.
Design & looks: The looks of TVS Metro is very good which has decent size fuel tank and nicely shaped seating position. Besides, the bike’s headlamp is also attractive in looking and black colored alloy wheels are also nice looking. There is not external kit is located in the bike which is completely standard il looks. The bike is perfect for those who wants a handsome mileage with standard looking bike in reasonable price. Though, many young people used to ride the bike in Bangladesh but it’s main customers are middle aged people.
Engine performance: The engine of the bike is also trustworthy which would not disappoint a rider at the middle of the roads. The bike consists of 99.7 cc engine and can able to generate 5.50 kW @ 7500 rpm max power with compatible max torque 7.5 @ 5000 rpm. Bore of the bike is greater than torque. Besides, there is a good compression ration which is 9.15:1. Total four speed gearbox is placed into the bike. Basically, better fuel efficient technology is installed to the bike which is the most prime feature of TVS Metro.
Dimensions & seating position: Dimension of this 100 cc bike would impress anyone which has large and wide seating position and three persons can ride on the bike. However, the bike is long enough to meet the standard size which is 1980 mm long, 750 mm wide and 1080 mm high. However, the seat height of the bike is 780 mm. Besides, the bike has 16 litres capacity fuel tank including 2 litres reserve. The kerb weight of the bike is 108 kg which is enough for 100 cc bike. The bike is strong but it is standard category bike which should not ride with top speed. Crossing 80 km per hour speed would be risky and riders would feel a little vibration.
Suspension & Brakes: Telescopic hydraulic fork suspension which is 110 mm stroke is used for the front portion of TVS Metro and spring loaded hydraulic suspension is used for the rear wheel which is 78 mm stroke. The suspensions are perfect for standard commuter which would provide sufficient comfort to the riders and pillions. Besides, the both brakes of the bike are drum which are 110 mm each. Due to the drum brakes, it’s controlling would not be so good where nowadays in Bangladesh, at least front disc brake should be used. So, hopefully company would solve this issue in next update and replace front drum brake with hydraulic disc.
Mileage: Now, we talk about the great mileage of TVS Metro which is best for the great mileage. Generally, the bike would provide at least 75 km mileage on highway if riders would follow the certain rules and in the same case, the mileage would not less than 65 km on city where riders used to face heavy traffic. So, the average mileage of TVS Metro would be 70 km which is so encouraging.
Instrument Panel & Features: The instrument panel of the bike is completely analog which consists of analog speedometer, analog tachometer, fuel gauge and some others. Besides, there are low fuel indicator, trun lamp, powerful headlight with pillion grabrail are noticed.
Colors & Price: Just two colors of TVS Metro are available in Bangladesh which are Red and Black. The price of TVS Metro ES is BDT 94,900 and TVS Metro KS is BDT 88,900.
TVS Metro Rating
The looks of TVS Metro is not so high but almost standard in level. The complete decent looking bike Metro would be selected by middle aged people at the first sight. Besides, Comfort of the bike is greater than looks. Due to standard seating position and standard level suspensions, it is quite comfortable. Most importantly, it has amazing mileage. The braking condition of the bike is not satisfied in level which need to added almost front disc brake. Besides, it has good resale value due to one of the most popular and reliable brand.
