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.
