TVS Motor Company, in collaboration with TVS Racing, has unveiled India’s inaugural electric two-wheeler racing championship. The TVS Racing Electric One Make Championship (e-OMC) will make its debut at the 4th round of the Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (INMRC) scheduled for September 29, 2023. Eight riders, handpicked by TVS Racing, will showcase their skills on the newly developed TVS Apache RTE (Racing Throttle Electric) race motorcycles, designed for this championship.
The TVS Apache RTE race motorcycles feature a range of technologies including a liquid-cooled motor with superior power-to-weight ratio, along with a liquid-cooled motor controller. The battery pack incorporates high-power cells with advanced chemistry and a carbon fibre battery case that also serves as a structural element of the chassis.
Additional technological highlights include a bespoke Battery Management System equipped with specialised algorithms for advanced configuration controls and enhanced safety. The motor spindle, connected to the rear wheel through sprockets and roller chain, ensures optimal performance. The suspension system boasts Ohlins components, while the braking system features Brembo components, including a 320mm front disc, calipers, and master cylinder.
Moreover, the TVS Apache RTE race motorcycles are fitted with carbon fibre wheels for reduced weight and enhanced performance, along with Pirelli Super Corsa tyres for superior grip.
