TVSBMW codenamed K03
Shipping details show bikes and parts arriving in India
BMW'S tie in with Indian firm TVS is promising to result in an intriguing new machine later this year – and from recently uncovered shipping documents it looks like it’s codenamed ‘K03.’
The name suggests that it’s in the region of 300cc, which fits with BMW’s intention to gain a hold in the sub-500cc market. At the moment, it’s been revealed on two shipments of prototype exhaust parts, both coming to India from Italy, one in June and another in August last year.
Further shipments show that prototypes were delivered to TVS from BMW, including one complete bike including its engine, also in June last year, and two further engineless rolling chassis.
It’s possible that the bike will bear some relation to the TVS Draken concept shown early last year, or at least share its 250cc, 38bhp engine, although TVS claimed at the time that the Draken was a purely in-house design.
