Royal Enfield already marks its presence in America and Mahindra and Mahindra is also planning to launch its Mahindra Scorpio SUV. The US market is one of the most developed markets in the world. TVS has already cleared its mandatory technical and emission tests for its bike and the model will foray into the US market later this year.

Our bike has met all stringent technical norms in the US and we have also appointed distributor to sell our products in the market.
