OSM JST JV powertrains are now ready with Ra314 and is testing on our vehicles for the past 6 months all across India in the toughest terrains of Rajasthan, Cherrapunji, and in the mountains of Leh. The Ra314 stands out with its 3s build – Silent Drive, Simple Architecture, and Superior Durability.

Future plans for OSM
OSM will be offering a wide variety of vehicles in all the segments of Two-wheeler, Three Wheeler & Four-Wheelers so that a mass audience can be captured.
As conscientious consumers, it is imperative that we make informed decisions rather than blindly succumbing to the allure of prominent brand names. The Indian government has taken a stringent stance on extending subsidies to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) in the country.
In regard to this policy, Mr. Uday asserts that it is crucial to forego the chase for subsidies since the brands that solely rely on these incentives are unlikely to thrive in the evolving Indian market.
