Thanks to the TVS-BMW partnership that was inked around 3 years ago, today we have amongst us the TVS Apache RR 310, BMW G310 R, and BMW G310 GS. While the Apache RR 310 is the most expensive, powerful, and premium product TVS has ever built, the other two BMWs have been developed as the most affordable BMW motorcycles which would get more customers on board. Contrasting, right? Now, the latest reports reveal that the next TVS-BMW bike could be launched in 2021.
Of course, we don’t have an exact date but this news should mean that the 4th bike is already in the development. It would be based on the same platform as the other two ‘low-capacity’ BMWs (G310 R and G310 GS) which the company sells in 90 countries including the US and European markets. It would be designed by BMW and build by TVS at its manufacturing facility in Tamil Nadu.
Speaking to analysts K. N. Radhakrishnan, President, CEO & Additional Whole-Time Director – TVS Motor Company, said, “With respect to BMW, I think they are extremely happy. The two products are doing extremely well. We have launched our one version (RR310) on that platform, the new one with BS-VI engine was recently launched. And we, possibly next year, will have one more variant of that from TVS Motor Company.”
“So this is something the new product and upgrade is something we have to constantly look at opportunities and constantly delight the customer, and we will invest behind that,” added Radhakrishnan.
Well, this is good news, isn’t it? We would soon have another good bike from TVS-BMW. We wonder what kind of a bike would it be, street, sports, adventure? What do you think?
