TVS Motors will launch its `Flame` brand of motorcycles under a new name, but the new SR125 will skip the controversial twin-spark plug technology over which the company is locked in a two-year old legal battle with rival Bajaj Auto, reports Economic Times.
On June 8, the Supreme Court had issued an interim order allowing TVS to continue producing the Flame series but had restricted the company from marketing them.
The order comes on the back of an interim stay from the Madras High Court that had given nod for TVS` plans to manufacture Flame.
Bajaj claims that Flame will be an infringement of its patented twin-spark plug technology

INVESTMENT RATIONAL:
The worst is over for the company as the company `s product is showing good response from the customer.
The decline in the raw material price will increase the operating profit margin for the company. This fiscal could see biggest jump in the operating profit margin.
Strong management confidence
FY2010 will have maximum Net Profit growth due to the lower base.
Slew of new launches in FY2010 will add glitter to the stock and it will help in getting market share for the company.
