South India based two-wheeler manufacturer, TVS Motors is planning to come up with a major upgrade to its flagship motorcycle, the TVS Apache RTR series. According for the BikeAdvice, new TVS Apache RTR series might hit the showrooms early, as within a month or two and even the prices are expect to be reasonably retaining the value for money tag.
The last big launch from TVS Motors was the ABS variant of the TVS Apache RTR180. It has also become the first Indian bike to sport ABS on the 180cc variant. Apart from Indian market, the company is also been doing-well in the Indonesian market and Apache series is one of the best-top sellers out there.
The TVS Apache series of motorcycles are solidly engineered with most of their development taking place on the racetrack with TVS Motors being the only Indian motorcycle maker running an active racing program. The track bred lineage of the Apache RTR series of motorcycles has meant that superb handling and terrific throttle response has endeared the Apache RTR160 and RTR180 to many of its buyers.
While Apache RTR buyers, who have been willing to live with the smaller engine capacity of the Apache due to the superb handling and throttle response, and well-priced between Rs. 73k – 85k, this bike is been adored by the youth for the styling cues it carries forward. The attractive colour schemes with which the bike is wrapped up with is another major attraction for the RTR series.
TVS Apache RTR series of motorcycles will get if at all the makeover happens in the next month or so is something we’ll have to wait and watch. We, for our part hope that TVS hastens its 200cc plus motorcycle plans to stay relevant in the Indian high performance premium motorcycle segment as there are a slew of 200-250cc motorcycles lined-up for the coming months!
