Bajaj's patented Digital Twin Spark Ignition or DTS-i technology as it is usually called has so far sold more than 10 million bikes .This technology was first introduced by the company in 2003 on its Pulsar range of motorcycles and subsequently other models in its portfolio like Discover also were incorporated into the DTS-i scheme of things.

DTS-i engines basically use two spark plugs as opposed to single units in most of the other two wheelers. A faster and more efficient combustion is provided in the process by the twin spark plugs, thus raising the power and fuel efficiency.

Here is the press release:

This revolutionary technology was first introduced by the company on its Pulsar brand in 2003 and was later incorporated in the Discover portfolio. DTS-i engines incorporate two spark plugs as against the single spark plug in other two wheelers.
