TVS Motor Company has launched its new 2012 Apache Series RTR with an all-new design and styling which has been incorporated in all its Apache models namely, the TVS Apache RTR 160, the TVS Apache RTR 180 and the TVS Apache RTR 180 with Antilock Brake System (ABS).
“We have taken the Apache RTR to the next level with obsessive engineering and menacing design,” says H S Goindi, President-Marketing, TVS Motor Company. “The priority in every step of the Apache brand’s development has been race-bred performance. Every system, detail and component has been tuned to maximise performance. Apache as a brand has been very well received.”
The new breed of TVS Apache RTRs adorn a very beastly and good looking daytime running LED lights which are placed side by side just above the headlight, a first for an Indian bike. The bike sports a digital console with new styling and race-inspired carbon fibre bits. The new nocturnal blue backlit display adds to the design element of the vehicle.
