The TVS XL 100 is a proven workhorse, given its sturdy appeal and practicality. It has been renowned for being used in rural as well as urban environments. With its low-cost price tag, it is aimed at buyers who are looking for not only a daily commuter, but also an immensely capable transporter for goods. However, there are a handful of customers who buy it just for its moped appeal.
Packed neatly within the frame is a 99.70cc, single-cylinder engine that produces 4.30bhp and 6.50Nm of torque. The motor is air-cooled and comes paired to a CVT transmission. The TVS XL 100 is BSVI-compliant.
The TVS XL 100 looks like a typical moped: basic and bare-bones. There isn’t much to its styling, but there are a couple of details that give it its identity. At the front, it gets a circular headlamp, a tall handle bar and fuel tank shaped like a cone. The front platform is wider than before, and the rear seat can be detached for those who’d like to carry goods. It gets skinny, wire-spoked wheels and a rectangular tail lamp at the rear. It also sports a very simple grab-handle for the pillion. Even the exhaust is rather basic in terms of appeal. The instrument cluster consists of a speedometer and an odometer on the left side and a turn signal indicator along with the headlight lamp and the ignition on the right side. That’s all there is to it. In terms of dimensions, the XL 100 is 2020mm in length, 750mm in width and 1110mm in height. Its rather peppy nature will surprise you, thanks to its instant acceleration. It can manage a top speed of 60kph, although it tends to get pretty gruff when strained. The engine has a nice, punchy sound to it. Being an automatic, it is extremely convenient to use in traffic. At 80kgs, the moped feels light and nimble. The ground clearance, on the other hand, is 155mm, while the moped has a wheelbase of 1215mm and a seat height of 770mm.
The TVS XL 100 has a fuel tank capacity of 4 litres. In terms of mileage, the moped is capable of returning 50kmpl by ARAI, in BSVI guise.
The seating position is rather comfortable as you’re seated nice and upright. The foot pegs are positioned well for both, the rider and the pillion. The seats offer decent padding, but long journeys can be a hassle. The XL 100 feels very light and zippy; you can literally dart into and out of narrow gaps and lanes without breaking into a sweat. Even around corners, the XL 100 is more than happy to do its best. It stays planted at high speeds and never feels unnerving to ride. The ride quality could’ve been better and braking performance is decent. At the front, the moped rides on telescopic spring-type hydraulics, while the rear gets a swing-arm. As far as the chassis is concerned, it is built around a tubular-type frame. The XL 100 runs on 2.50-16 tyres at the front and 2.50-16 tyres at the rear. Retardation duties are taken care of by drum brakes at the front and at the rear.
The moped comes loaded with a slew of features like an analogue instrument cluster, a pillion grab handle, carry hook, step-up seat and passenger foot rest.
The TVS XL 100 is available in a variety of shades like Red, Green, Black, Blue, Grey and Copper Shine. Red is certainly a colour that is bound to be a favourite among young riders.
