    TVS and BMW Motorrad will work together in developing, selling, and manufacturing future products such as an electric bike.

    "The new world of future mobility encompasses a strong play through alternate solutions, including electric mobility," TVS Joint Managing Director Sudarshan Venu stated in a release. 

    He added: "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.”

    In April 2013, TVS and BMW Motorrad signed a long-term strategic partnership to manufacture sub-500cc motorcycles for the globe. This collaboration has resulted in three products on the 310cc platform: BMW G 310 R, BMW 310 GS, and the TVS Apache RR 310.

    In the Philippines, TVS offers a wide range of two-wheel and three-wheel vehicles in more than 500 outlets nationwide
