TVS Motor Company today announced cutting prices by up to Rs 3,500 across its product portfolio following excise duty reduction announced in the interim Budget.

"In keeping with TVS Motor Company's tradition of trust and transparency, the benefit of the excise duty reduction has been passed on to the consumers through price reduction ranging between Rs 850 and Rs 3,500 on the entire range of two and three wheeler models," TVS Motor Company Vice President Sales J Srinivasan said in a statement.

The company has also worked out a mechanism to support all our channel partners so that the benefit of the price reduction is available to the consumers even on existing stock, he added.

The company sells various motorcycle models, including Star City and Apache RTR and scooter models like Jupiter and Wego. Besides, the company also sells three wheelers.
