What is Ecothrust Technology?
Ecothrust TVS technology uses a ‘Molycoat’ piston to reduce friction inside the engine.
How It Works:
TVS Motors (http://www.tvsmotor.in) developed this technology. It implemented the Eco-thrust technology in TVS Phoenix 125 and TVS Flame DS125 bikes. This technology uses a ‘Molycoat’ type of coated piston, reducing friction inside the cylinder. It, thereby, increases the power and helps to reduce fuel consumption. Moreover, as claimed by TVS, it does so with more efficient combustion.
In Ecothrust, to achieve the Optimal Ignition Curve, the engine takes into consideration variables such as the speed of the bike. Besides, it also considers the weight of the rider and other riding conditions. Combined with Digital-mapped Ignition, the engine adapts itself automatically to varying speeds. And thus, the engine provides optimum mileage. This technology also increases the power & improves fuel efficiency, as claimed by TVS.
