TVS Motor Company

TVS Motor Company is the flagship company of the TVS Group. Sri T.V. Sundaram Iyenger established the TVS GROUP in 1911.

TVS group commands a strong presence in manufacturing of two-wheelers, auto components and computer peripherals. TVS Motor Company's first launch was 50 CC Moped TVS 50 in August 1980. It is the first Indian company to introduce 100 CC Indo-Japanese motorcycles in India in 1984. It was also the first Indian company to launch indigenous scooterette in India in 1994. It has grown rapidly since it's beginning to become one of the prominent two-wheeler manufacturers in India. Today TVS is a well-known brand in the field of bike manufacturing. The manufacturing unit of TVS Motor is located at Hosur and Mysore.

What makes TVS stand out from all other two wheeler companies in the country is that it is without any foreign collaboration. The company was established by T.V Sundaram Iyengar in the year 1911 and was primarily into the production of mopeds. TVS Motor Company Limited, the flagship company of the USD 2.2 billion TVS Group, is the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India and among the top ten in the world, with an annual turnover of over USD 650 million. The company has many first to its credit like the introduction of the first indigenous moped and a 100 cc motorcycle in collaboration with Japanese auto giant Suzuki.

The company has products across all categories from premium motorcycles to entry level mopeds and has recently launched Apache in the premium segment. With the exit of Suzuki. The company roped in master blaster Sachin Tendulkar for the promotions and the sales went northwards after that. as many analysts felt that the company would be pushed to the periphery of the two wheeler market. many felt TVS would have to limit itself to the moped market in the country. TVS company is aiming to capture a quarter of the total two wheeler market in the country. the company aims to become the number 2 two wheeler manufacturers in India and also want to crack the top five in Asia. This further heightens the importance of the success of the TVS Victor.The company has been able to outdo itself and spring a surprise.When the collaboration ended in 2003. many thought that the company would die a natural death due to the exit of the foreign collaborator. . However the company proved its detractors wrong by introducing the TVS Victor and rest as they say is history. The company did not have a good track record of in-house product development as most of its' earlier ventures like the Shaolin. Focus on Motorcycle 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 as consumer preferences and choices have changed with the changing times. Shogun and the Supras failed to take off.
