Honda and Suzuki are doing good. But TVS? If TVS believes that only God can save them, then even God helps those who help themselves. Simple.
Most of the guys here know what TVS stands for. But our's and the general public's memory is quite poor, and if not refreshed soon, nothing good might remain in our memory, regarding TVS.
Commuters are hardly enough to create a news, and what's so special about them anyways? Some 110cc machines struggling to find their USP's?
Premium segment was their stronghold, until they dropped some redesigning on our market, which apparently directs airflow towards engine. And that minimalist no-nonsense character is gone... forever apparently.
Their 4 valve full blown racing machines are fun to ride, but their road machines, including both RTRs and the commuters are (not surprisingly) surpassed in most areas by the competition.
