The all-new TVS Apache could be a 250cc
The next generation of home-grown performance motorcycles are gearing up to set the stage on fire. Recently we gave a detailed report on the future plans of Bajaj Pulsar range (Also read: Bajaj Pulsar future plans) which would be the most advance range of bikes to roll-out of its Chakan plant. And now there are reports that its arch rival from down south, TVS Motor Company, is preparing to unleash the all new TVS Apache 2015 in the India market.
TVS Motor had announced during the 2014 Auto Expo that it will be launching four new products in the financial year 2014-15, which it initiated with the introduction of the TVS Star City+. (Also Read: TVS Star City review). Next in queue is the stylish new TVS Scooty Zest gearless scooter which was displayed by the company during the Auto Expo. The TVS Zest is powered with a four-stroke, 109.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine which would produce about 8PS peak power and 8Nm maximum torque. The automatic scooter is expected to be very aggressively priced to give the segment leader, Honda Motorcycle and Scooter Ltd. stiff competition, and will be launched between June-July 2014.
Later this year, around September, TVS Motor will launch its third two-wheeler model for this financial year by reviving the commuter motorcycle brand TVS Victor. The 2014 TVS Victor is expected to borrow cycle part from its sibling TVS Phoenix, including the 125cc single cylinder air-cooled engine which is capable of 11PS of peak power and 10.8Nm maximum
Sources working closely with TVS Motor Company have told ZigWheels that the fourth and final model for FY 2014-15 will be the all-new TVS Apache. Recently, the international automobile giant BMW, had joined hands with TVS Motor Company to develop small capacity motorcycles, but the new TVS Apache 2015 is being developed entirely by TVS engineers in India without the support of its German partner. TVS’ new performance motorcycle will be the company’s flag bearer in terms of technology and design.
