Mahendra Singh Dhoni, Captain of the Indian Cricket
Team, today visited TVS Motor Company's plant at Hosur. It was a
personal visit as he wanted to test ride different models of TVS
Motorcycles. He was very enthused to see the various models produced by
TVS, including the very first moped that the company manufactured.
Dhoni voiced his specific interest in two stroke vehicles saying "I love
the sound that these bikes produce. The exhaust tone is so different and
pleasing", while being shown around the company's R&D facility.
At the test track Dhoni tested the newly launched Apache RTR 180 and
also tried out one of the road racing models of TVS. "The experience is
truly exhilarating", Dhoni said after the ride.
He later addressed the employees of the company saying "this was truly
an amazing experience for me. The various tests that are conducted on a
motorcycle are truly amazing. The environment, the greenery and the
discipline exhibited by you is truly commendable. During my walk through
of the factory I could not help but noticed the passion that each
employee shows in his work".
"If invited again I would love to come provided cricket is not
happening" he added
