Style and technology made affordable
Today’s needs are very unique. While people want their bikes to be in line with the gadgets they use, they are also keen to get value for money. Add to this the task of bringing out cleaner, fuel efficient bikes, and the challenge becomes even tougher.
The R and D team at TVS Motor Company has worked efficiently in every aspect to provide better bikes
- better looks, better fuel efficiency and better performance.
Performance and convenience
- the Innovation drivers
Cutting Edge Racing - The RTR Promise
Ask anyone who has ridden the RTR and they will simply compare the bike to a 250 cc. Delivering 15 bhp from a 160 cc engine, the bike is certainly tweaked for performance. The pickup is terrific and one needs to feel the rev of the RTR engine to get into its spirit.
Fuel economy, lower emission, lesser weight
- The value Drivers
All technology features aimed at by all value around TVS have these as the primary goals. While the performance aspect is taken to its optimum, the engineers at TVS try to work towards building bikes that are easy to ride, at the same time are easy on the environment.
|Inspiration from aeroplanes - the magic of CCVTI
The CCVTI technology helps deliver higher power, at the same time maintaining fuel economy.
The CCVTi technology features total 3 ports, out of which 2 different intake ports called Swirl port & Power port and 1
Exhaust port. Swirl port creates swirl motion of air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. This Swirl motion helps in efficient combustion of lean air-fuel mixture thus giving highest fuel economy in its class. Power Port gives high flow rate, which is a greater air-fuel mixture, which helps in delivering high power.
Many features have been introduced for the first time in almost all vehicles of TVS Motor from time to time. The cellphone charger in Scooty Pep or an indicator light which shows if the rider is riding at optimum in TVS Victor
- are examples of innovations in convenience.
Alternative fuels are also a big avenue for study. The three wheelers launched recently will be available in LPG and CNG models. Alternative fuels, lower fuel emission techniques are a very important part of R and D at TVS Motor.
Ergonomics and styling
At TVS Motor, we believe that the rider and the bike should unite at a point, and the pleasure of riding happens then.
Ergonomics and styling are developed by the company by being in constant touch with the public. Adequate market research is carried out before a product is put into the manufacturing stage. With over 40 technicians working in the styling department, the R and D Department of styling is geared up to meet ever changing demands of the discerning customer.
New vehicles like the TVS Apache RTR and TVS Flame stand testimony to the style enhancements to a motorcycle today. The ergonomics and all the features are used to make the motorcycle appealing to the younger generation while offering better performance.
Due to the introduction of IT (Computer Aided Design) in New Product Development, the development cycle is reduced by half.
Neo-Bebek for Indonesia
The company has launched its first product in Indonesia
- the Neo, a Bebek. The styling team visited Indonesia to study the culture and the people and have adapted many learnings on to the product. Market research was further strengthened by having many features which helped customers in their normal travel ways.
