India's TVS Motors return ₹ 57 crore to its dealers to cover the BS-III losses

India’s TVS Motors return ₹ 57 crore to its dealers to cover the BS-III losses

As an industry first, TVS showed their trust to its dealers who had woes with the discounts levied during the BS-IV fiasco.

As you all know, starting from April 1st, 2017, the Supreme Court has ordered all manufacturers to stop registering and selling vehicles still running on BS-III engines. To clear them before the deadline all dealers who had stock started levying massive discounts on their products, and some even lost money in this process. The industry took a ₹ 600 crore hit due to the three-day discount fest. It was always better to clear off stock rather than keeping an inventory even if it costs them.

Now, the manufacturers have come to their rescue and as reported first, TVS Motors has become the first manufacturer in the industry to have reimbursed the losses incurred by the dealers. They have paid out losses running up to ₹ 57 crores, and doing so, showed their trust withing their dealer networks.

2017 TVS Apache RTR 160

The entry level race bred horse from the TVS stable.

Why is there a 160cc category? That odd number is more of a marketing strategy really. Want people to shell out more money for you, give them another 10cc. TVS did just that with the advent of the RTR 160. It was the first ever bike to surpass the notion of selling only 150cc bikes, by giving the customers an upper advantage of extra 10cc in its engine and a little more equipment.

Launched first in 2007 to compete with the rest of the 150cc ones, it is a stylish looking Motorcycle and the word ’RTR’ means Racing Throttle Response which tells you that this motorcycle is built for speed. The bike was launched in parallel with the 180 nemeses and also received the major overhaul in 2012, and it made the Apache look sportier with possessed aggressive outlook. Now, for 2017, TVS has given it yet another mild upgrade which gives it a BS-IV engine and adorns the AHO feature. The rest remains unchanged. Let’s have a brief look at this year’s model.

The nameplate, which started with the unveiling of a 150cc motorcycle, has spawned into a variety of streetfighters, which somewhat have managed to create new benchmarks when it comes to delivering raw power in a relatively affordable package.

Running with three products under its Apache brand, the 180 sits right in the centre. It got a major upgrade in 2012 that adorned new cosmetic changes, and it made the Apache look sportier with possessed aggressive outlook. Although the rest of the mechanics remained the same, it remained as one of the most powerful and fastest motorcycles in this segment in India.
