Welcome to the Shiny New TVS Motor Company Blog! Here’s What We Stand For

It has been 39 long years since we took our first step on this enchanting journey. And what a ride it has been! At TVS Motor Company, our vision to focus unrelentingly on solid engineering, create products that imbibe innovation, value, and durability, and eventually delight our prized customers has transformed us into a brand which has been loved and admired not just in India but has also earned wide recognition and accolades all over the world.

Our unwavering focus on unbridled engineering is reflected in our dedication to motor sport and using the extreme conditions there to learn, evolve, and eventually translate that knowledge into our products. From being the makers of a 50cc race mopeds back in 1984 which notched up unbelievable speeds of 105 kmph, to being the first Indian two-wheeler to participate in the challenging Dakar Rally, TVS Motor Company has always been at the forefront of two-wheeler racing.

Our learnings from the track have translated into innovations which earned us several industry firsts in India. From being the first Indian company to create a two-seater moped, being the first to put a catalytic converter on a 100 cc motorcycle, creating India’s very first indigenously produced four stroke 150cc to taking the crown for making India’s first indigenous scooterette – TVS Scooty, our journey has been filled with grand successes.

We also built India’s first fully indigenous motorcycle in the Victor, were the first Indian company to launch ABS on a motorcycle on the Apache RTR Series, created JIVE- country’s first clutchless motorcycle and brought to life India’s first oil-cooled chamber construct with Ram-Air assist- the Apache RTR 200 4V. Even a small product like the TVS Champ boosted India’s very first digital ignition.

And the sole purpose of bringing all of those achievements up is not to be boastful about them. In fact, at TVS Motor Company, our philosophy is to let our actions speak louder than our words and carry on with solid work on the ground that matters rather and make our products speak for themselves. We write to you today, as we wish to create a grand new platform for all our fans, followers and customers to know us better.

We are sure quite a few of you didn’t know about the few achievements we shared until you read about them today. Through this new blog, we wish to adopt this wonderful new digital medium to tell our story to you most sincerely and humbly.

At the outset, we would start off as a blog, and will slowly transform ourselves into a vibrant community of TVS Motor Company customers, fans, and enthusiasts who would converge on this platform to tell us their stories and experiences with their favourite TVS Motor Company two-wheelers.

Here’s  what you can expect to find everything you need to know about us and two-wheelers in general. We would strive towards ensuring that this blog becomes a vibrant platform for TVS Motor Company aficionados to learn and share everything about not just TVS Motor Company, but biking and engineering in general.

We will put up articles which encompass everything from things as simple as replacing a brake cable to the finer nuances of racing – and everything in between. Tips & Tricks, DIY tutorials, feature articles, technology pieces and rare commentary about relevant topics from subject matter experts – expect us to bring it all here. During this process, we hope for your support to make this blog the definitive platform for all TVS Motor Company fans to come together and engage productively in creating a community which is of great value to the entire biking community.

We sincerely hope you enjoy your time here. Ride Safe!

  • Hello Sir,

    Everything is fine. I am a die hard fan of RTR series, from the year 2004, my first bike was GLX 125, than RTR 180 and now RTR 200 4v.

    From my experience-
    GLX was very very good, its ran approximately 1,86,000 km from the year SEP 2004 to FEB 2011. I made its engine for 3 times. I saw after the engine reborn, it’s pickup and fuel economy was tremendous.
    RTR 180 was only good, because of it’s performance. Its ran approximately 76,000 km from the year of FEB 2011 to AUG 2016. In that case I made its engine for 3 times also. But performance after engine reborn is very poor like acceleration, pickup, fuel economy. Basically I had complained from the beginning for it’s Vibration. Otherwise, its a very good bike on its segment.
    RTR 200 4v is really good, because of its performance and engine quality. Its ran only 22,000 km from AUG 2016 to AUG 2017. I like its model, sound, engine quality, road grip, weight. But rear flap guard is flop to save from mud ( I said it… design error ).

    Highly request to all HoD, kindly supply the spare parts to the workshop or make sure the availability of spare parts on workshop. Cause I saw/see from the beginning in MIDNAPORE (KRISHNA TVS) had/has no availability of spare parts. Currently I am suffering for this for my RTR 200 4V. Please make ensure this first.

    What about Akula 310 ? expected to on-road date ?

    Thanking You.

  • Hi TVS,

    This is Jagadish from Bangalore. I am a Big fan of TVS and very proud about TVS, who produce world class Motorcycles.

    I heard a news about New Apache RTR 160, which looks like new Apache RTR 200. Is the news true? I am really waiting from long time to buy it.

    Current Apache RTR 160, I hv found some issues like, vibration in higher speed, mileage less than 45, lean front position and long rides results in back pain, etc

    I test drove TVS Apache RTR 200, it had very smooth gear shifting, awesome pick, refined engine, liquid cooled engine, most of all is the Best in class design…
    I really loved it..

    I am expecting the new TVS Apache RTR 160 vibration less, decent mileage, liquid cooled, FI system, ABS if possible and it should beat the Suzuki Gixer & Pulsar 160 NS in all aspects..

    Can you please give me the expected release date of the new TVS Apache RTR 160.
    I am waiting.


  • This is Jagadish again, tell me if news about New TVS Apache RTR 160 is true or fake..?

  • Hi,
    I got notification about this blog, but no response for the past 15 days..
    I have been visiting everyday to check reply..
    I was about to buy Bajaj Pulsar 160 ns.
    When I heard about TVS 160, with a body of TVS 200..
    I kept my plan on hold.. I stopped two of my friends too..who were planning to buy Gixer..

    No response from TVS, really disappointed.. 🙁
