Bajaj Auto has managed to sell over 10 million (1 crore) motorcycles fitted with its patented DTS-i engines.
DTS-i was first introduced by Bajaj Auto in its Pulsar brand of motorcycles in 2003 and was later incorporated in to the Discover portfolio.
DTS-i engines incorporate two spark plugs as against the single spark plug in other two wheelers. A single spark plug engine provides a spark at only one end of the combustion chamber while the DTS-i engine provides two – one each at either end of the chamber, resulting in faster and more efficient combustion with almost no wastage of precious fuel. The end result is superior performance without any compromise on mileage.
Commenting on the occasion, Mr. K. Srinivas, President Motorcycle Business, said, “We started using the DTSi technology on the Pulsar and eventually used it in all the Discover models. This technology has contributed substantially to our leadership in the Sports segment and also in creating a differentiated offering in the commuter segment. At a time when fuel prices are sky rocketing our DTS-i technology has proved extremely beneficial to our customers”
