Honda CB Hornet 160R launch on 10th December    Hyundai Elite i20 has 66% market share in premium hatchback segment    US equity firm Bain Capital to sell Hero shares worth $116 million    3M Car Care launches printed car wraps in India    Toyota to start Innova exports from Indoensia soon

TVS Motors, the Hosur based bike company that has made waves in the sport biking culture of India with its model, the Apache RTR is now all set to launch the same model but with full fairings! The Apache RTR offered in India is offered in the 160 and the 180 cubic displacement variants. The TVS Apache RTR 160 is a tough competitor to the very popular Yamaha R15 and the Bajaj Pulsar 150. A new version of the 160 is due to be launched in India and expectations have been riding very high on this face-lift. It is expected to be showcased at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo to be held in January.

However, the expensive spares, vibrating mudguard, uncomfortable seats etc makes the bike not fairing very good at the reliability and build quality factor. Hopefully, TVS should resolve these glitches when they come out with the revised model. The TVS Apache with full fairings was showcased recently in Indonesia. The bike is definitely a looker and looks at first glance looks no less than a proper sports bike. The long headlights, full fairings and the thick tires make the bike look quite masculine too. The bike is definitely make waves in the Indian market once launched. We are eagerly waiting for this latest mean machine to come to India. Will this bike take the bike market by storm? What is your opinion?

    Sorry guys for breaking your expectation, I’m from Indonesia, This Bike is TVS Apache RTR modified by Indonesian moto modifier per request by TVS. This bike was showed in some auto expo to show the sporty image of TVS.

    You can look Suzuki GSX series image in the bike. India is the base of TVS so, it has very small possibility if Indonesia become R&D center of TVS in Sport bike. Indonesia is R&D center of TVS in Cub bike series, because it has very large market in Cub and automatic bike.

    @ joy….hw can u compare apache 160 with r15….r15 is almost double the price of rtr 160….strange???

    • Faisal

      Hrithik, I think the comparison is with reference to the cc.

    • hritik

      agreed fas…..but thats the only thing which is common in rtr 160 n r15…..r15 is almost double in the price n outperforms both rtr160 n even its biggger sibling rtr180…also some big guns like pulsar 220 n hero karizmas r well mathced by r15….the looks,the technology used in r15 compared to rtr is class apart…even the target buyers r diff…..if the cc is only point of comparison then i think yamaha fz series makes better sense here……

    • Faisal

      Hritik, that is right but then both the bikes are good handlers as well.

  • hritik

    the bike looks more or less based on suzuki gixer series….if launched wid 250cc mill…it can be a worth foe to duke,cbr n ninja
