Hey Guys, I need some help. My TVS Wego has clocked 7200 KMS on Odometer, and will be a year old in 3 days from today. Off late, I started to face this strange problem with my Wego - it stalls while in motion. Once, it stalled on the Mumbai-Vashi bridge while I was overtaking a tanker and I narrowly avoided collision with the car coming from behind, thanks to its driver. I checked with the TVS Service center (Ujjwal Motors, Dombivli) and they said they are not aware of such issues and they will have to ride it to check. So I gave it for checking and also asked for servicing. They called me saying that they tried riding my Wego for long distance however they didnt face similar issue and hence unable to detect the problem. I just got my bike yesterday from service center and today the problems again started happening, this time with increased frequency. I went to service center again, they asked me ride with one of their mechanics tomorrow so that they can see this in action. I am planning a trip to Igatpuri on 26th of this month and I of course do not want my Wego to behave the way it behaves now. Any experts here could help me identifying what could be the problem?
TVS Motor is gearing up to launch a diesel variant of the TVS King auto rickshaw in the coming months. The King is now available in both petrol and CNG versions and the huge price difference between petrol and diesel has prompted TVS to come up with a diesel rickshaw. The manufacturer estimates that the current market for diesel auto rickshaws is around 30,000 units a month. The TVS King is powered by a 200cc single cylinder petrol engine which develops 7.4 bhp. TVS has managed to sell 13,602 units of the King in the last quarter of 2012 against 8,899 units during the same period in 2011, which is a 53% increase. Mr. K. N. Radhakrishnan, CEO of TVS Motor said “Our investment in this (diesel King) would be low, as the design is going to be the same and the target market would be largely domestic market.” Andhra Pradesh, Kerala and Tamil Nadu are the prime markets for this launch and TVS is looking to improve its penetration in states like Punjab, Bihar, Rajasthan, Orissa, etc. While there are no details available on the specification and displacement of the diesel engine that will go into the TVS King, the rickshaw is expected to lock horns with the diesel variants of the Piaggio Ape auto rickshaws.
