The TVS XL 100 Standard Red is well known in India for being strong, sturdy, and economical and has been designed for carrying large loads.
It has become the standard courier motorcycle in India because it is reliable and can carry heavy loads. Plus the rear pillion can be removed to add extra space to carry luggage.
In rural areas the TVS XL 100 also can take on some of the roughest roads in the world to make deliveries.
How does this relate to the Philippines? Well, India and the Philippines have something in common overcrowded cities and roads in poor condition in the provinces. So a motorcycle that is designed to take on the streets of India is also perfect for the Philippines.
In the Philippines, couriers are starting to realise that the TVS XL 100 Standard is the best machine for the job, if you go to any Lazada Hub in the morning you are bound to see XL 100 riders loading their motorcycles to do parcel deliveries.
TVS XL 100 fuel consumption
With a fuel consumption of 67km/L it means there is more profit for the owners as they spend less on petrol.
The TVS XL 100 Standard has a split seat meaning the rear seat can be removed easily to provide more space to carry goods, it is also an ideal motorcycle to fit side saddlebags. with a payload of 130kg it means if you are using it as a courier you can carry 130 one kg packages or 260 half-kilogram packages.
Unlike many motorcycles today the TVS XL 100 does not have lots of plastic parts, like plastic leg shields, plastic floors etc. It is a mainly metal motorcycle which means it is strong and durable, it will take the rough knocks and last for years.
At Tuk Tuk 3-Wheelers we use an XL 100 ourselves for one of our mechanics in the field, it is often loaded with tools, parts and even a crocodile jack and it just keeps going. apart from changing the oil and the odd tune-up, we do nothing to it.
Daily it covers over 100km and while it does not get them there fast it does get them there in a reasonable time.
