    Currently, DriveX plans to refurbish 350 to 400 two-wheelers a month and has 10 service bays operational. It has plans to open six more service bays at a later date, which should further help to increase that number. This centre has all the principal features needed to service or refurbish a two-wheeler properly such as an in-built two-wheeler – specific paint booth, hydraulic ramps, a heating and baking oven, and a dedicated training area. This service centre will cater to people in the regions across Salem to Kerala. 

    On the launch of the Coimbatore DriveX Technical Centre, Karthikeyan commented, “The pre-owned two-wheeler vehicle market is changing rapidly. We have been successful in launching new business models, including the pre-owned model in the two-wheeler segment earlier. And now, we have established this state-of-the-art technical centre with such immense capacity closely working with ATS Elgi machinery to meet our demands in churning out the volumes for the customers.”
