TVS free to make and sell Flame

Madras High Court has ruled that TVS Motor can manufacture and market 125 CC Flame in its original form. The two-member bench lifted an interim injunction that prevented TVS from using an engine with two spark plugs and three valves.

The interim injunction application filed by Bajaj against TVS Motor, restraining TVS Motor from manufacturing and marketing 125 cc Flame on the ground that it infringes their patent was dismissed.  TVS Motor was forced to re-launch its 125-cc Flame motorcycle last year, which came with a single spark plug, replacing the twin spark plug that triggered the legal tussle between the companies.

Simultaneously, the application filed by TVS Motor against Bajaj from interfering in the manufacturing and marketing of 125 cc Flame with 3 valves and 2 spark plugs was allowed, with the result that TVS Motor can manufacture and market 125 cc Flame.
