Default TVS @ Auto Expo 2012

TVS @ Auto Expo 2012-_dsc0086.jpg

TVS showcased the QUBE, the manufacturer's answer towards a greener environment.

High Points:
  • Powered by a Electric Hybrid Motor.
  • Extended battery pack ensures a longer covering range when on the go.
  • Hybrid motor will provide better efficiency and low emissions.
  • Switchable power modes.
  • LCD Display as a speedo-console. (Displays Battery charge / Fuel levels, speedo, odo, time and other check-lights.)
  • Regenerative brakes will help keep the battery charged and ensure longer travel range.
  • Minimalistic design, yet looks very modern.
  • Projector headlamp would be a segment first if TVS can get this into its production variant.


Thanks to jalsa777 for the pictures

New TVS Automatic Transmission
  • New Automatic Engine based on the Jive gearbox.
  • The ECU detects the need to change gears by analysing the RPM and load (throttle position).
  • It then sends a signal to a solenoid which is directly connected to the gear shifting drum. It is essentially a normal gearbox from the inside, but instead of the human leg engaging a lever to change gears, a solenoid rotates the shifter drum.
  • TVS has applied for patents for this innovation, but they are still under review.
  • This new technology which employs AT in place of conventional CVT claims to improve fuel efficiency by almost 20%.

TVS Apache Series
  • Still one of the only bikes under the 1 lakh segment which provides a Roto Petal Disc Brake.
  • The RTR ABS when launched, was a segment 1st feature which managed to get inside the market just before the "CBR 250R C-ABS".
  • The zig-zag sticker job on the Apache RTR Hyper Edge also distinguishes it from its bigger sibling - Apache RTR 180 / 180 ABS.

There goes the rumored Apache 250. Is the 250fx being launched here or just one of those one-off bikes that TVS just displays and forgets (remember the 250cc B-king inspired naked of '04 Expo?) ??

I live in hosur - land of the TVS Factory. I saw a heavily camouflaged bike with a BIG scoop-skirt being tested around the town. Before I could take a pic - he vanished, never to be seen again. I will keep my eyes open!!

My apologies in advance if this question sounds stupid.
Isn't TVS an Indian company? Then how come TVS Tormax isavailable in Indonesia and not in India?

The Qube is quite an interestingly styled product, it certainly is a marked difference from the other options in the electric scooter market. Does anyone know what range TVS is claiming for the Qube?

Mods - Theres a picture of the RTR 180 in which it looks as though the model's dress has ridden up a bit. Could we replace this picture with an alternate one?

Just love the Qube and the Thormax models.

I don't understand why TVS isn't offering the Thormax model in India. It looks quite trendy and offers a good market for college crowd.
