Thanks to the good folks at Visordown , we’ve got our first look of the upcoming TVS-BMW streetfighter.The bike -codenamed K03, is currently being developed in Germany ,the same place where this test mule has been spotted.The bike is expected to be launched later this year.
TVS and BMW took up the partnership in 2012 so as to develop a successful sub-500cc platform.With the experience that the Indian manufacturer has in the sub-200cc segment,and their functioning production and assembly centers through out many developing markets,along with the Bavarian manufacturers prowess in the premium range does make them a formidable pair.
With the TVS Draken concept displayed at the 2014 Indian auto expo, we got a glimpse of what the manufacturers has to offer.The new spy pictures also reveals a similar design language,with some obvious changes.
The front mildly resembles the Draken and has a single headlamp arrangement. The fuel tank is now even more sculpted ,sporting sharper lines .The rear sports a very premium look (Mind I say similar to the KTM Dukes) and a LED tail lamp is also provided.The only thing that is out of place here is the humongous exhaust, which should probably be removed as the bike enters production.
Other equipments that are visible include the front and rear single discs along with ABS,6 spoke alloy wheels ,USD front forks and a monoshock set-up at the rear.
Hopefully we will see more of the K03 in the months to come .Stay tuned for more updates.
