Designer Aaron Cardozo during his internship at TVS Motors’ design studio, created a concept motorcycle that seats one. That might not sound fascinating. What will is his source of inspiration – A Sennheiser VMX 100 Bluetooth headset!


Aaron has designed this motorcycle for the customer in his 20s, seeking a purchase that is unique and fashionable.
The sketches speak for themselves. TVS should plonk one such single-seater in their lineup to add a dash of color to their portfolio. After all India isn’t a market that not open to customized motorbikes.


A single seater is not practical in our country, but TVS could always make it in limited numbers and use it to build its brand image. The Apache RTR 160 platform could serve as a starting point for such an ambitious project.

Great concept and designing!

But in India still majority of the people buy bikes for daily commuting purposes only. So a design like this hardly fills the purpose. The success depends on the pricing too!

But TVS can definitely use this for boosting their image!

Wow!

Seems to be a nice concept!

TVS will surely commercialize this idea & make it more practical for everyday use.

As someone who bikes for fun, I would like to disagree, but then, it is the unvarnished truth, and any bike maker who is in the business for money will stick to that mantra for as long as it lasts.

Slowly changing, I hope!!

Yeah slowly. Right now we have switched over to the powerful 150cc from the economical 100cc bikes even for commuting , gradually will change!!

Yup, but the shift (to 135 cc actually) is only if the bigger engine still gives a comparable mileage!!

this is a concept now i think and NOT made for daily commuting. to make it easier, why do people buy by Rolls and Lambos when they can not commute daily with them.

Yes buddy that is what even am saying. Majority of bike buyers still buy bikes which are economical and VFM!! So a concept like this may not be successful , but as i said its not about numbers here but brand building!!


The scenario of cars in the Indian market has changed now , many people spend more! But this is not the case with bikes at present!![:)]
