Currently, it is the first largest cycle manufacturer in India and number one manufacturer in special segments like mountain bikes, sports lite roadsters, racing bikes, etc.
TI Cycles of India chose to install generating sets powered by two Perkins® 4012- 46TAG0A engines for both its plants in Chennai and Rajpura to manage the erratic grid power supply situation. Perkins powered generator sets were chosen over other brands due to their better performance and reliability.
The Perkins 4012, 12 cylinder, engine has an excellent power to weight ratio. They are compact, easy to operate and have good ambient performance capabilities.
