The country’s third largest two-wheeler manufacturer (Oop’s now its replaced by Honda), TVS Motors has been making some remarkable bikes in its foray from a period of time, they have always initiated its buyers with ideas of bringing in the Racing DNA in their premier bike the Apache RTR – which has been selling pretty decently in the market. The Apache is a pretty decent performing bike acting both as a daily commuter as well as a racing sports bike.
At the time when the first Apache was launched way back in somewhere around 2004-2005 and initially when the Apache was launched, it came in with a 150cc engine which after a period of time was upgraded to a 160 cc motor coming in next was the 180cc version of the bike adding in more power to the bike which unleashed the Racing DNA for Apache bikes.
The next-gen Apache is round the corner, we reported earlier that TVS may upgrade current Apache series. Recently, there were unconfirmed reports which states the company has lined-up bigger Apaches of 200cc plus for the coming months. But now, it seems that the South Indian based company which is the third largest player in the nation is seriously considering the ideas of either upgrading the bike or going for a facelift.
News is also strong about the company introducing Velocity model in the Indian market; this would basically be a street-fighter getting inspired by Apache. However, it looks like that TVS with go with either upgradation of the Apache or introduce it with a facelift.
The upcoming next breed of the Apache is expected to be really good in terms of looks & styling, so what might have from TVS is another sports segment Apache with full fairing looks similar to that of the Honda CBR 250 Kawasaki Ninja 250. However, for the time being the launch date for the bike has not been made but we assume that TVS will unveil the bike in a month as far as pricing is concerned we feel that TVS will price it competitive to the CBR 250.
