After achieving a fair amount of success with the G 310 R, G 310 GS and Apache RR 310 motorcycles, TVS Motor and BMW Motorrad are coming together one more time to co-develop new platforms and electric vehicles. The official statement said that TVS’ scope will “include the design and development of future BMW Motorrad products and delivering world-class quality, supply chain management, and industrialization.” In simple terms, in addition to developing Motorrad products, TVS might also manufacture them at its Hosur facility. The joint statement also added that the first product through this cooperation will be showcased in the next 24 months.
In light of our fruitful association with TVS Motor Company, we are delighted to extend and expand our cooperation agreement to include long-term partnership and joint development of new platforms and technologies, including electric vehicles. Our strong synergies have led to the development of impressive offerings in the sub-500 cc segment. Since the launch, BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS models continue to enjoy unrivaled popularity with over 100,000 global customers. We look forward to the future of this cooperation. – Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad
“The new world of future mobility encompasses a strong play through alternate solutions, including electric mobility. Expanding this successful partnership to EVs and other newer platforms will create opportunities to deliver advanced technology and aspirational products to global markets and bring valuable synergies to both companies,” added Sudarshan Venu, Joint Managing Director, TVS Motor Company.
At present, both companies have an electric scooter on offer in India (developed independently). TVS is selling the iQube while BMW Motorrad launched the C 400 GT not too long ago.
