DTS-i stands for Digital Twin Spark Ignition

Digital Twin Spark Ignition powered engine has spark plugs at either sides of the combustion chamber.

1). Greater combustion rate,this enhances both engine life & makes it fuel efficient. 2). Enriches the power of the bikes.

In Conventional Engines, we uses only one spark plug at one end of the combustion chamber
The flame front created by the spark takes some time to reach the farthest portion of the combustion chamber. 1).leads to slower burning of air-fuel mixture.

2).creates limitation in optimizing the combustion chamber characteristics.

1).Twin Spark Plugs

2).Digital C.D.I 3).TRICS III

Currently one spark plug at one end of the combustion chamber is the conventional practice.The flame created by the spark takes some time to reach the farthest portion of the combustion chamberThis lead to slower burning of the Air-fuel mixture& creates limitations in optimizing the C.C characteristics. 2 spark plugs at either ends of the C.C helps in faster & better combustion .

A Digital C.D.I with an 8 bit microprocessor chip handles the spark delivery. The programmed chips memory contains an optimum ignition timing for any given engine rpm. 1).Thereby obtaining the best performance characteristics from the combustion chamber

Throttle Responsiveness Ignition Control System IIIrd generation . It is a means of controlling the ignition by operating the throttle depending on the needs of the rider. 1).Helps in achieving a good balance b/w driveability & optimum ignition spark advance.

2).Gives almost perfect Ignition Spark advance for every throttle opening & engine rpm

DTS-Si Engines

DTS-Fi Engines

DTS-Si stands for Digital Twin Spark Swirl Induction DTS-Si engines also has 2 spark plugs like DTS-i engine,but the difference b/w these two engines is the offset position of the inlet & outlet ports. This offset position creates turbulence of the air-fuel mixture in the combustion chamber. Results in highly efficient combustion that further results in exceptional mileage.

DTS-Fi stands for Digital Twin Spark Fuel Ignition In fuel injection the conventional carburetor has been replaced by injector which injects the fuel in to the engine in a spray form based on the instructions of Engine Control Unit (ECU) which is a part of Engine Management System
ECU is microprocessor based & is the brain of the fuel injection system

1).Greater Combustion rate , enhances both engine life & makes it fuel efficient. 2)Enriches the power of the bike. 3).Improved cold start, quick warm-up & excellent response to sudden acceleration. 4).Lower emission levels.

1).The engine tends to overheat & loose power at higher speeds as compared to a single plug engine. 2).These engines need frequent check ups to keep the performance level constant.

Bajaj motorcycles have the patent rights of this engine. DTS-i was first introduced in pulsar 150/180 models in 2003 DTS-Si technology came in XCD 125 in 2007 & currently also available in Platina 125 & XCD 135 DTS-Fi Bajaj displayed the 220 DTS-Fi at the Delhi Auto Expo 2006. Whereas the Indian nationwide launch happened in July 2007. Pulsar 220 has DTS-Fi engine & claimed to be the Fastest Indian Bike with a top speed of 144 Kmph
