TVS Motorcycles


The first product launched by TVS group was a 50 cc moped, which appealed to the masses because of its capability to carry two people. The same promoters started another company in 1984, in collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan, for the manufacture of 100 cc motorcycles under the brand name of Ind-Suzuki Motorcycles. Since the moped division was bought by Ind Suzuki Motorcycles in 1987 so the company changed its name to TVS Suzuki Ltd.



Even though the company started producing all kinds of two wheelers like mopeds, scooters and motorcycles, the collaboration with Suzuki continued for the motorcycles only. The collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation ended in 2001 and since then the name of the company changed to TVS Motor Company. TVS group was a pioneer in mopeds but slowly they have shifted focus to the motorcycle segment since the entire market seems to be moving in that direction .Launch of TVS Victor was a success, now the company aims to become the number 2 two wheeler manufacturers in India and also want to crack the top five in Asia. TVS Apache, TVS centra, TVS star are some of the popular TVS motorcycles available in market.
