Apache which was once bike enthusiasts’ ‘The Bike’ in terms of style and features seems to be a dropped choice and no more a looked up brand.
Despite the Apache RTR 180 with ABS, TVS couldn’t get the customers flock to its showrooms, blame it on changing customer choices and attitude, even a great performer and superb handler that Apache RTR 180cc is struggling to lure buyers.
Going by this backdrop TVS has been giving upgrades to the TVS Apache RTR and may showcase the facelift version at Auto Expo 2012, New Delhi. Rumors are that the TVS is going to come up with DOHC liquid cooled engine.
TVS will sell Apache Twins in Indonesia and has recently unveiled its upgrade which had some noteworthy changes including dual disc brakes in the front, new fuel tank and alloy wheels, split seat saddle and clip handlebars but to mention few.
Although TVS didn’t announce they’d launch the Apache Twins (twin disc brakes) upgraded version in the Indian market, showcasing it at the Auto Expo 2012 New Delhi will definitely give chance for the company to know the pulse of the Indian bike enthusiasts especially about the new changes they have brought in the bike and then it can contemplate on launching it in the Indian market.
