To meet growing interest in motorcycles among ladies, Car and General has introduced the purpose built TVS XL 100 model. This has a sloping petrol tank which gives space for a platform for the rider’s feet and a wide comfortable seat. Fuel consumption of 80 kilometres per litre makes for low running costs.
The bike has an electric starter, automatic gears and a USB charging port. There is a saddle for a passenger which is easily detachable for carrying loads. Buyers are offered a range of colours and the retail price for the TVS XL 100 IS 89,000 shillings.
Talking about the use of the new TVS XL 100 Leonidah Ayuma, a TVS Sales Executive said, “It is expected that riders will usually wear trousers, but the bike is designed to also suit dresses and has room for long skirts. Owners will mainly use their machines for commuting to and from work. They will also enjoy going shopping and weekend outings either carrying their kit or a passenger.”
Support from Car and General for purchasers of TVS motorcycles includes a one year warranty, two free services, a reflector vest, two helmets, a tool kit and an owner’s manual. After sales service is provided by the Company in the Lusaka road premises and branches and dealers throughout the country. Ample stocks of genuine spares are readily available.
