The next TVS product launch will draw technical know-how from the TVS-BMW partnership.

TVS Motor Company has joined the list of automakers confirming that their products will face a price cut post-GST implementation. The new form of taxation will be applicable across the country from July 1, 2017.

The price cut could be the result of a 2 percent rebate on the existing tax structure which has motorcycles below 350 cc taxed at 28% as opposed to the existing 30%.

The price reduction on TVS motorcycles, scooters and mopeds will differ from state to state.

Mr KN Radhakrishnan, President and CEO, TVS Motor Company, said:

We are very optimistic about GST which is a landmark reform. It will bring in a lot of ease in doing business. We will be passing on the benefits to our customers.

Before this, Bajaj Auto and Royal Enfield announced a pre-GST price cut, passing on the benefits to the consumers even before the taxation rule was applied. The country’s second largest two-wheeler seller, Honda, last week announced a price cut in the range of 3 to 5 percent.

Two-wheeler sales for TVS grew in May 2017 by 15.6 percent with 275,426 units retailed in the same month. Scooters sales for the company grew by 30.9 percent increasing from 65,434 units in May 2016 to 85,681 units in May 2017.
