TVS Motor Company has been manufacturing the BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS at its manufacturing facility in Hosur.
TVS Motor Company has announced the roll out of the 100,000th unit of BMW Motorrad’s 310 cc series motorcycles. The BMW G 310 GS was rolled out of TVS Motor Company’s manufacturing facility in Hosur, Tamil Nadu, by KN Radhakrishnan, Director and CEO, TVS Motor Company, and Rainer Baumel, Head of Products, 1-, 2-Cylinder and Urban Mobility, BMW Motorrad. Three motorcycles are manufactured at the Hosur facility based on the 310 cc common platform, the BMW G 310 R, the BMW G 310 GS and the TVS Apache RR 310. In 2013, TVS Motor Company and BMW Motorrad signed a cooperation agreement to develop and produce sub-500 cc motorcycles for the global market.
Commenting on this milestone, KN Radhakrishnan, Director & CEO, TVS Motor Company, said, “We are delighted to achieve a historic milestone in our journey with BMW Motorrad today. This achievement is a strong testimony to the success of our eight-year partnership, which has created a common learning platform for both companies. Our partnership has been truly exceptional for creating aspirational products made for the global market. We are proud to be a part of this journey and look forward to continuing the partnership with BMW Motorrad.”
Markus Schramm, Head of BMW Motorrad, said, “Our strong synergies with TVS Motor Company have led to the development of impressive offerings in the Sub-500cc segment. Since their launch, both BMW G 310 R and BMW G 310 GS single-cylinder models continue to enjoy unrivalled popularity. With the roll out of the 100,000 unit of BMW Motorrad’s 310cc series, these two agile all-rounders are an integral part of BMW Motorrad’s success story. We look forward to the future of our cooperation with TVS Motor Company.”
TVS Motor Company’s Hosur manufacturing plant produces around 10 per cent of BMW Motorrad’s volumes globally. The BMW Motorrad models, the BMW G 310 R and BMW 310 GS are now available in 120 countries. TVS has been constantly upgrading its motorcycle range, including the TVS Apache RR 310 which was recently unveiled with the Built to Order (BTO) platform, offering performance kits and equipment which makes it possible for Apache RR 310 customers to get a track-ready bike, straight from the factory.
