In the year 2007, when TVS launched Flame with twin-spark technology, it was forced to halt production due to a patent case violation lodged by Bajaj. Bajaj claimed it developed and patented the twin spark plug technology in 2002 and TVS was illegally utilizing its technology.
However on September 16, the Supreme Court allowed TVS Motor to sell the Flame brand with the twin spark plug technology. The court has also directed the suit before the Madras High Court, which is to be concluded by November 30.
After the court’s decision arrived in their favour, TVS Motor Co Ltd said on Friday that it reintroduced its "Flame" brand of motorbikes that feature twin spark plugs, after obtaining the necessary legal clearances.
