The digital instrument console on the new TVS Apache displays a host of information while the styling is heavily inspired from the Draken concept.
TVS Apache fans are surely excited for the new flagship model that has been under development for quite some time now and is closing in towards the official reveal. The automaker’s entry to the 200cc and above performance space will be packing in lots of tech and power to substantiate its ‘sporty’ claim. Now, shedding some light on the model are the new set of spy shots that completely reveal the instrument cluster on the upcoming model.
To begin with, the digital instrument console packs in all the essentials that you would expect on TVS’ flagship offering. The top displays the tachometer that extends up to 12,000 RPM and we expect the new Apache to rev up till 10,000 RPM to the least. Further, you get a clock, gear indicator, speedometer, fuel gauge, odometer with trip meters and possibly what is a welcome note that says ‘Race On’. Right below the digital console are all the tell tale lights including the ABS symbol, which will be optional in order to keep the asking price lower. You also get a gearshift light on the top right corner while a service reminder is also likely to be part of the package. Yes there is some similarity in the console of this TVS bike with the BMW G310R.
Talking about the design, a lot of elements can be traced back to the Draken concept on the 2016 TVS Apache including the neatly styled and muscular looking fuel tank, wavy alloy wheels and split seats that add to the sporty look of the street-fighter. The bike gets W shaped protruding grab handles at the back while the handlebar is mounted higher making for an upright seating position. The naked offering also gets TVS handlebar grips and an aircraft style fuel filler cap.
Mechanically, the new TVS Apache comes equipped with telescopic front forks and a conventional monoshock rear unit along with a wavy petal single front disc and a conventional disc at the rear. TVS is keeping the engine and power output very much under wraps, but a new single-cylinder motor with a displacement between 200-250cc is known to power the street-fighter expected to churn out around 22-26 HP. The Hosur based automaker could showcase the model as early as next month or wait for a grand premiere at the 2016 Auto Expo. In either case, the new TVS Apache is sure to gain a lot of attention and an extremely aggressive pricing of around Rs. 1.1 lakhs will help sweeten the deal.
