TVS now sells 'Flame' under a completely different technology as against the original one. In a petition filed earlier Bajaj Auto Ltd had accused TVS of copying its patented technology. Bajaj claimed that though it had patent for an internal combustion engine with four stroke, two plugs and two valves configuration, TVS had infringed the rights as it had planned a new motorcycle with similar technology. On Feb 16, 2008, a single judge restrained TVS from using the technology on its new bike model.
While Bajaj obtained patent for its engine, TVS said it possessed licence for the same technology from AVL of Austria.
