TVS Star City 110: Up grade

Sorry, but I haven't any pics for the Star City 110 yet. To describe it, it has an edgier looking front-end with a more square headlamp and an iffy horse graphic that runs from the knee recess down to the sidepanel. The bike I saw was black, with orange/red graphics. The rest of the text is from TVS, oh and the launch date is still TBA
