Our Journey in Road to Success
We “The Six” was inspired by our super seniors batch (2013-2017) and we built our bike in the II Semester and started attending races continuously. Our interest and hard work fetched us appreciation and took us to the next level. That is when we started implementing some innovative ideas for increasing the efficiency and performance of the bike. Thenceforth, “Winning became our hobby”. All the other competitive colleges appreciated our efforts and we have a healthy competition among us.
The engine of this bike is of “TVS 50”. We totally designed and fabricated this bike as totally new in look wise and also in performance wise. The body balancing of the bike is extraordinary and it is very less in weight (45kgs). The total cost for building this bike is around Rs.17,000/-.
Our team won events step by step and we invested the prize money in several projects. We also got awards like
- Best Marketing
- Best design
- Best Rider
We were interviewed by a TV channel (King TV) and it got telecast.
- We won
- We are winning
- We will win
Our first race
“Karpagam College of Engineering” was the first race event we attended in our 2nd semester -2015-16. There we experienced a huge struggle. Our bike suddenly stopped while racing and it never got started we were given a grace time of 2 1/2 minutes to start the bike. We dismantled the ECU unit and repaired it and started the bike in 2 minutes and then we completed the race and got 2nd prize with a cash award of 15k.
Our Bike Specifications
Fork : Max R 100 Chassis : TVS 50
Rear Suspension : Twister Wheels : TVS 50
Brakes : Drum Fuel Tank : 5 litres
This makes a huge difference comparing to other normal bikes. We built a “Mini” bike. The bike was built for our rider’s comfort and it is very less in weight and body balancing is extraordinary. It reaches a speed of 60kmph.

It is a big project for which we may have to spend about 6 to 8 lakhs and we are planning and researching for it.We worked for success but along with it, we owe our success to our fellow students, Mechanical Department Staff and Our College Management for supporting us from day one
