The TVS XL100 Heavy Duty is powered by 99.7cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 4.3 bhp and a torque of 6.5 Nm.

The TVS XL 100 Heavy Duty is a 100cc moped aimed at the rural markets which is more of a load carrier than anything else. It is positioned above the two XL 100 standard and below the Comfort variant in TVS’ Indian portfolio.
The TVS XL 100 Heavy Duty, as the name suggests, is powered by a 99.7cc, single-cylinder four-stroke engine which was updated from carbureted to fuel-injected during the BS6 transition. It produces 4.3bhp at 6,000rpm and 6.5Nm at 3,500rpm and comes mated to a single-speed gearbox. Tipping the scales at just 89kgs, the XL 100 Heavy Duty can carry a payload of up to 130kgs.
The 16-inch spoke wheels ride on conventional telescopic suspension in the front and dual hydraulic springs in the rear. It gets drum brakes for both wheels. The miniscule fuel tank can take up just four litres of fuel with reserve arriving at 1.3litres. The removable rear seat allows for better load-carrying capacity with a single rider.
While the entry-level trim of the XL 100 Heavy Duty gets a kick starter, it also comes in an i-Touchstart variant with a silent electric starter with a USB charging port as an additional feature. It demands a premium of around Rs 3,000 over the standard Heavy Duty. Moreover, there’s a slightly fancier Winner Edition available that gets a few cosmetic add-ons like beige bodywork, dual-tone seat with quilted design, chrome mirror and exhaust shield, and a metal footboard.
Being quite a niche product, the TVS XL 100 Heavy Duty doesn’t really have any direct competition in the Indian market.
