    Default TVS-BMW K03 Single Cylinder Confirmed: xBhp News

    TVS-BMW have confirmed the development of a single cylinder engine for bike currently codenamed K03.


    Picture for illustrative purposes only

    The TVS-BMW partnership which had been inked in 2013 is closer to fruition with the confirmation of a single cylinder engine being developed for the two partners. The engine will be below 500cc, but the exact specifications have not been revealed. What we do know is that this single cylinder engine will be developed completely by BMW, only the production will be done in the state of the art facilities of TVS. The engine will be used in both TVS and BMW motorcycles. Bikes being manufactured in India by TVS will have both BMW and TVS branding, depending on the model. The BMW bikes will be exported out of the country.

    Currently the company is not looking at producing a twin-cylinder engine, though that is in the pipeline in the later years. BMW has a history of bulletproof quality and expectations are very high from the Indian manufacturer to live up to that quality. The good news is that the quality of the motorcycles is to be standardized and therefore the customer in India will have access to world class motorcycles at affordable costs.

    This is a wonderful news. This is going to be a naked streetfighter. I am hoping for a wonderful supersport-a mini S1000R.
    Btw BMW's image has been tarnished a bit of late in Europe amongst riders. it no longer enjoys that reputation of building bulletproof bikes. The S1000RR and S1000Rs have all be reported to have minor issues and niggles. The Suzuki's and Honda's have stood the test of time and are still revered as fill it shut it kind of bikes. The Suzuki's especially. They have fallen behind in tech but still hold the edge when it comes to reliability.

    Could anyone point me to the "new" content in this article, if any?
    Because from another article several months back, we all knew it is going to be a single less than 500cc produced at TVS factories in both TVS and BMW branded editions.

    I think this is just a confirmation from BMW. Previous articles were rumors IIRC.

    Isn't this the Draken which was seen at the Auto expo? The tail section looks similar.

    The codename was confirmed a year ago. They even imported 2 K03 for R&D last year. Its most likely going to be a single 300

    This is a bit unrelated but I cannot find the right thread for it and the Xbhp search function is broken. Therefore.

    Someone from TBHP has spotted a new RTR testing in Karnataka:
