TVSM, which has presence in over 60 countries, is seeking to enter more markets in Europe and North America. The company’s key export products include the TVS Apache, TVS HLX series, TVS Stryker series.

Recently, TVSM chairman Venu Srinivasan said that their global ambition was to become a premium motorcycle company with 20% of business coming from premium brands. To this end, it had appointed Ralf Speth, a global automotive industry veteran and JLR’s ex-CEO, as non-executive director.

TVSM had acquired the British sporting motorcycle Norton Motorcycles through one of its overseas subsidiaries for 16 million pounds and some assets of Norton Motorcycles (UK) Ltd in April 2020. During January 2021, Norton announced that it would move into the most advanced manufacturing facility.
