India-based TVS Motor Company is eyeing stronger market presence in the Philippines with the launch of two new models, unveiled yesterday. Growing the brand's lineup of scooter, underbone, backbone, and business offerings are the Dazz and King models.
The Dazz is an automatic scooter, powered by a 110cc single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, paired to a CVT unit.
It produces 8.7-PS at 7,500 rpm and peak torque of 8.3 Nm at 5,500 rpm. The Dazz meets Euro 3 emissions standards and is available in three colours: Matte Black, Matte Grey and the popular Matte Pink.
Its contender as a tool for small and medium enterprises is the King, a three-wheeled vehicle designed for evolving cities that offers power, style, comfort and high fuel mileage. The King is powered by a 200cc, modern low friction 7-port engine. It produces 10.2-PS and 15.5 Nm of torque with its peak torque delivered at lower rpms.
It's paired with a 4-speed manual with a reverse gear. This engine is also fuel injected and meets Euro 3 standards. The engine's tuning has been designed for navigating city traffic without frequent gearshifts. It operates at lower revolutions for most road speeds to capably deliver good fuel mileage, making it ideal for business or transport.
“We have been present in the country since 2016 and the market has responded positively to our diverse offerings ranging across Underbones, Backbone Solo and Business Backbone. The launch of TVS King and TVS Dazz has opened two new segments for us and we are confident that both products will be well-received by the rapidly growing market,” said KN Radhakrishnan, President & CEO, TVS Motor Company
“Our commitment to our customers extends to providing full-time after sales-service support as well as innovative programmes such as TVS Experience camps which run across the country,” said R Dilip, Senior Vice President, International Business, TVS Motor Company.
