A couple of days before, we reported that TVS Motors have conducted a contest as a part of promotion event for TVS Apache RTR. The contest is like you should design the decals for Apache > Post it when they ask for the entries > Promote it on FB > Get likes. The one with most Likes wins a TVS Apache that’s one in a million.
The picture of TVS Apache that’s one in a million is on the cover page of the Facebook contest ‘The Beast Seeks a new skin’. If we closely look at this picture you can make out the Apache RTR seen here is not a regular variant. Instead slightly different version with body panels of the outgoing-RTR model, while the front fairing slightly different as never seen before on any of the RTR’s on-sale so far.
Furthermore, the headlamps seen here are of new model, with some consolation for the meaner headlamp and the futuristic-looking Daytime Running Lamps. Even the turn indicators and rear panel seen here are different from the regular variant. Rest of the bike seems to be the same and also expect the bike to be unveiled on the next full moon that is on May 25th, 2013.
Although, the above said Apache is one in a million for the winner of the contest we expect to see new 2013 TVS Apache RTR for the normal buyers to be launched soon. It was the 2012 upgrade in which the TVS design team thought out-of-the-box, and unleashed a new version of the Beast. But things didn’t work out as TVS had calculated.
Most of the Apache Fans cried foul over the issue, and quite a few demanded a rollback to the previous upgrade. Now a year after the previous facelift, we speculate TVS might come-up with the new variant of RTR variant sooner than expected. Who knows TVS might borrow design cues from their new partner ‘BMW’ ! 🙂
