ETG Logistics, distributors of the range of TVS motorcycles, scooters, and 3-wheelers in Southern Africa, has improved the warranty and service terms for their local model range which now improves the value for money proposition and reduces the risk for users, without an increase in the retail selling price.
The range-topping TVS Apache RR 310 now comes with a three-year unlimited kilometre warranty for engine and transmission (excluding wear and tear parts) whereas previously owners only had a two-year unlimited kilometre warranty. Service intervals on this model have now been extended from 5,000 kilometres or six months to 10,000 kilometres or six months.
Next up in the TVS model line-up is the Apache RTR 200 which now benefits from a two-year unlimited kilometre warranty for engine and transmission (excluding wear and tear parts) and service intervals of 6,000 kilometres or six months. At a retail selling price of R 41,999 including VAT, and considering the digital connectivity on this naked sports bike which is unmatched in its segment, the Apache RTR 200 offers class-leading value for money.
The TVS 125 NTorq scooters, Raider 125, Trak 150, HLX 125 and 150 models all now have improved warranties of three years or 50,000 km (excluding wear and tear parts) which is a significant improvement over the previous three years or 30,000-kilometre warranty. Service intervals have also been extended to six months or 6,000 kilometres for the NTorq and Raider models, and six months or 4,000 kilometres for the Trak 150 and HLX range.
Hans Greyling (Business Head for TVS South Africa): “After extensive consultation with buyers in the sport bike and delivery motorcycle segments, we realized that an improvement is required on the warranty and service aspects of owning and operating a TVS motorcycle. We are confident, that the improved warranty and service terms will be well received by the target market as we have now improved the value for money offering from TVS without increasing the selling price of our models” said Hans.
ETG Logistics has an established Automotive and Farm Equipment Distribution business in selected African countries and has a TVS dealer network of 15 dealerships in South Africa, Botswana, and Zambia. Plans are well advanced to appoint more dealers locally and in neighbouring Namibia and Zimbabwe.
