Spread Design: Designing Innovation for TVS

The TVS Corporate Design Innovation Workshop (10/06/2010)

ur last workshop as a part of this leg of SPREAD was the TVS corporate design innovation workshop held on the 10th of June, 2010, solely for the employees of TVS motors. This workshop was slightly different from the rest as it was specially tailored for TVS. We had around 25 participants from various departments and branches of TVS. There were people from the brand innovation team, sales team, engineering team and even the advertising and PR team, all from the Scooty division.

ere’s a little introduction to TVS motors. TVS Motor Company is the third largest two-wheeler manufacturer in India and one among the top ten in the world. TVS was founded by T. V. Sundaram Iyengar in 1911. It is the only automotive manufacturer in India to get the prestigious Deming Prize. This prize is given to organizations that have achieved distinctive performance improvement through the application of TQM in a designated year. TVS Motor Company has its origin in Sundaram Clayton Limited, Moped Division, started in 1980. The factory was started in Hosur, Tamil Nadu in southern India. The first product launched was a 50 cc moped, which appealed to the masses because of its capability to carry two people. In the same location, the same promoters started another company in 1984, in collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation of Japan, for the manufacture of 100 cc motorcycles under the brand name of Ind-Suzuki Motorcycles. Subsequently in the moped division was bought by Ind Suzuki Motorcycles in 1987 and the company changed its name to TVS Suzuki Ltd. Even though the company started producing all kinds of two wheelers like mopeds, scooters and motorcycles, the collaboration with Suzuki continued for the motorcycles only. The collaboration with Suzuki Motor Corporation ended in 2001 and since then the name of the company changed to TVS Motor Company. The company now develops all types of two-wheelers through its own in house R&D facility and manufactures in three locations in India, Hosur in Tamil Nadu, Mysore in Karnataka and Baddi in Himachal Pradesh. It has recently started a new manufacturing plant in Indonesia to cater to the South-east Asian market. TVS also gave us the Scooty (launched

Power assisted bikes are ELECTRIC by legal definition in BC. ( and limited to 350 watts VERY low power) 18 MPH max level no pedal speed. NO GAS ENGINES ARE ALLOWED
I was building one of these machines. I got a Schwinn O.C.C. Chopper, The special engine mount needed for that frame and a smaller than usual rear sprocket to make up for the small diameter of the rear wheel. I went to a used bike and parts store to get headlights, tila lights etc

Thanks for the link

I'm a 23/F though, so I don't mind being seen on a moped, haha.
And small mopeds are street-legal but don't require a special license, or registration or insurance... so it's way cheaper for a poor college student such as myself.
I've seen so many of them around LV. They must be somewhat practical. I'm just thinking of using it for daytime riding, to and from UNLV. And to buy groceries, which I can carry in my backpack. Maybe a 20 mile round trip, at the most.
