TVS and BMW has been working together for quite some time on a motorcycle codename-KO3. Recently TVS has patent its tank which resembles of the Draken concept motorcycle. From its extended side panel and muscular character lines, the tank looks almost similar to the one on Draken concept that was showcased previously in 2014 AutoExpo. It was also cleared that the complete engineering of the engine will be done by BMW solely and that the BMW-TVS partnership will see the technical brilliance of the German giant combine with the production excellence of TVS. This means that TVS will be free to utilize the platform for its own range of products to a certain extent.

KO3 will be a street fighter motorcycle as seen on the spied images which will utilize a newly developed single cylinder 300cc engine. It is expected that the engine will be capable enough of producing around 35bhp of power. As we reported earlier, the bike is in its final stages and it has been exported in large numbers to BMW’s facility in Germany for final tests. There is a huge chance that the bike will be showcased at EICMA this to attract the bike enthusiasts worldwide. KO3 is one of the most important projects for TVS as well as BMW as it will be the introductory product of the Indo-German alliance. One launched it will lock horns against the old competitors such as KTM 390 Duke, Kawasaki Z250, Benelli TNT 300 and soon to be launched Mahindra Mojo.
