TVS Jive mileage reviews
Bikeadvice [dot] in says that TVS created waves in Indian Biking scenario when it announced its clutch less bike JIVE in November last year, although its India’s second after Hero Honda Street, being it as bike it sure did create a lot of waves. It raised many speculations as to how one can actually ride a bike without having to use a clutch. Finally the bike hit the market and bookings now open in all TVS showrooms across India. The bike looks similar to TVS Star city and its next variant, the Sport. It has 5 spoke black alloy wheels and all black treated engine. To be honest, the bike is not very eye catching in the looks department.
On the technology front, the Jive has become a boon to those stressed by frequent changing of gears and depression and release of the clutch in traffic. Same as the Honda Street launched in the 90’s. It boasts of an electric-start (a must have for all bikes these days) that can be used to start the bike regardless of what gear the bike is on.
TVS Jive boasts of an on-road mileage of about 65 kilometres per litre and is a clear competition to Honda’s CB twister. The fuel tank is huge like the performance segment, with a 15 litre holding capacity.
