Review of TVS Metro Plus (110 CC):
Overview: The TVS Metro series is always been known for their fuel efficiency or mileage, reliability and performance in its segment of 100 CC city commuters. They have been proving themselves ever since their first launch. TVS Auto Bangladesh Limited Launch a new addition to their Metro series, the TVS Metro Plus on February 15th, 2015.
The new TVS Metro Plus has got some upgrades over the TVS Metro ES. This Metro plus has a 110 CC engine that is capable of producing 8.4 PS of power and 8.7 NM of maximum torque, also some very important and new features with some major refinement over its elder brother the Metro ES.
Engine: The New TVS Metro Plus is powered by an all-new 110 CC single cylinder, 4 strokes, air cooled spark ignition Eco-Thrust engine. This new unit is derived from the TVS Phoenix’s Eco-Thrust engine which is known for its smooth performance. Unlike the Phoenix, this engine also adjusts petrol flow to the cylinder based on the throttle position. This technology gives the best combination of power and mileage.
The cylinder has 53.5 mm bore and 48.8 mm stroke resulting 109.7 CC of piston displacement. The compression ratio used is 9.2 : 1 which is ensures the longevity of the piston hence engine considering the available gasoline quality in Bangladesh. The engine is feed through a Keihin AV1 Carburetor with a 10 Liter fuel tank and 2 Liters of reserve capacity. The engine is equipped with paper filter element as air filter for its breathing.
The engine has a positive lubrication system for it lubrication. The positive lubrication basically delivers lube-oil from a pressurized reservoir with built-in solenoid valve that delivers predictable quantity of oil to the spinning bearings through a system of stainless steel tubes (According to NASA Technical Report). This positive lubrication should result in smooth transmission of power without much power loss for friction on the bearings and valve ports.
And, all these gismo results in 8.4 PS of peak power at 7500 RPM and 8.7 NM of maximum torque at 5000 RPM. This might looks not so impressive but when this it hooks on to vehicle kerb weighted 109 KG it becomes very impressive. This bike has a power to weight ratio of 34 HP for per 1000 KG.
