TVS's Jive is a fusion of the Star's chassis, albeit with some modifications and the 110cc powerplant. Even more rocking is the introduction of the Tmatic system - a double clutch unit derived from TVS Indonesia. So when you start the Jive and engage first gear or any gear for that matter there is no clutch lever to pull. After tapping into gear you just need to accelerate to get going.
It all works surprisingly well and without any fuss whatsoever. Thanks to the double-clutch system you can come to a stop in any gear without stalling the engine. The special gearbox uses the normal multiplate clutch as in normal motorcycles along with a second clutch, before the final drive; much like a CVT in scooters this clutch disengages the drive when the rpms drop low and allows the engine to idle without stalling. TVS claims fuel efficiency of just under 60kmpl and a power output of 8.5bhp.
