TVS in the Indian two-wheeler industry

The name TVS is familiar to Indians through their TVS 50 mopeds which they started manufacturing in 1979. They had a 19-year partnership with Suzuki, which ended in 2001. This saw motorcycles such as Shogun, Samurai, and Shaolin. During this stage, TVS Suzuki Fiero generated good market response, which continued even after TVS parted ways with Suzuki. Interestingly, Fiero is making a comeback next year.

TVS’s motorcycle legacy was strengthened with the introduction of the Apache series. TVS is known to have introduced various groundbreaking innovations in two-wheeler technology. The Apache featured Racing Throttle Response and became the first Indian bike to have petal disc brakes. TVS was the first in India to introduce the FI system in its bikes, with Apache RTR 160 being the first.

The Apache RTR 180, launched in 2009, was the fastest bike in its segment. In 2011, the Apache RTR 180 became the first bike to feature dual-channel ABS. Innovation also continued in riding comfort, as the Apache RTR 200 was rolled out with monoshock rear suspension.

More recently, TVS partnered with BMW Motorrad to build superior engines. TVS is making the right moves when it comes to being eco-friendly too. The Apache RTR 200Fi 4V is India’s first-ever ethanol-powered motorcycle.
