We all were speculating that the ultimate product that will come out from the Indo-German partnership will be a twin-cylinder motorcycle. But news from various sources says that the motorcycle will be a single cylinder, whose code name for now is KO3. The new wheel rim design patient by the company is found to be very similar to the design spied on the 300cc bike test mule which was spied after a year of TVS-BMW partnership.

Though the specifications figures are not out yet, but we hope that the strategic partnership of TVS-BMW would result in a 300cc motorcycle that would be capable of producing around 35bhp. The bike utilizes reverse cylinder design with intake at the front and this type of design is already being used by the Honda’s and Yamaha so BMW will not be the first one to use such a type of design in their motorcycles. The K03 uses up-side down front forks and single monoshock at the rear. ABS will come as standard on this motorcycle. Though the bike will be sold by the name of TVS for some markets and for some other markets BMW badge will be used. When launched in India it will lock horns with Honda CBR300R, Hero HX250R, KTM Duke 200, Kawasaki Ninja 300 and Benelli TNT 300. If priced sensibly, this bike will take the Indian motorcycle market by storm.
