The trio are at it again! The Grand Tour will screen the 11th episode of season two, which will see presenters, Jeremy Clarkson, Richard Hammond and James May, go a journey across African country of Mozambique. While Clarkson picked a Nissan Hardbody 4×4 and May an old 1984 Mercedes 200T in the latest episode, Hammond has decided to ride an all-new TVS Star HLX 125.
While we are aware of the TVS Star, the HLX suffix is somewhat new to us. The TVS Star HLX 125 has been developed exclusively for the African market and not sold in India. The TVS Star HLX is based on the TVS Max 4R, that was on sale in India until recently.
A 110cc engine powered the TVS Max 4R, while the HLX 125 is powered by a 125cc EcoThrust engine producing 11bhp of power. The TVS Star HLX 125 is positioned as a commuter bike in Africa equipped with an electric starter, alloy wheels, among others.
As for The Grand Tour and its experience with the TVS Star HLX 125, the trailer of the episode two of the season two shows Richard Hammond falling several times in probably the harshest riding conditions. Hammond had crashed with a Rimac Concept One electric car, and this episode probably reflects Hammond's affinity to falling off a vehicle - pun intended.
