TVS Motors issued an official statement clearing the doubts about DTSi Twin Spark Technology and ExhausTEC. “We hereby firmly state that some persons in the media seem to have been misled into believing that a correlation exists between “DTSi twin spark” technology and “ExhausTEC”. In reality they are two independent technologies with separate patents and these technologies are not used by TVS Motor Company in any of its products,” stated the official press release from TVS Motors.

Bajaj Motors has been recently awarded patent by the Indian Patent Office for its “ExhausTEC” invention vide Patent no 231498 dated 5th March 2009. There had been certain media reports that TVS Motors may be in trouble as it uses the same technology in its vehicles. However, the company had denied any such statements from the beginning. Now it has officially issued a statement stating that “TVS Motor Company is not infringing on the said patent and the grant of this patent has no impact on our business as none of the products of the company utilise the said technology.” It also stated that The patent granted to Bajaj Auto is for “ExhausTEC”, which is a chamber fitted on the exhaust pipe. It has nothing to do with “DTSi twin spark” technology. They are two separate patents and are not linked to each other.”
