Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Available on the Apache 160, Apache 180 and Apache 180 ABS variants.
TVS Motor Company has released a video promoting the TVS Apache RTR Matte Blue Edition which is offered on the Apache 160, 180 and 180 ABS models. The Apache’s microsite lists only the 180 Matte Blue edition as of now.
Apart from the new body colour there is nothing new in any of the RTR versions. Even the respective body graphics are retained.
The TVS Apache RTR 160 is usually available in five shades – white, grey, black, red and yellow, while the 180 and 180 ABS models are offered in two tones – white and black. In mid-2014 TVS introduced a matte black edition of the Apache RTR 180, which was not a permanent offer. Likewise, the matte blue edition would be launched as a limited release.
TVS Motor Company Chairman, Venu Srinivasan, had recently confirmed that a 200 cc Apache will be launched in a few months, along with a four-stroke moped and the TVS Victor commuter. Spyshots of what was believed to be the 200 cc Apache has already surfaced online, and reports suggest that the model will feature a single-cylinder air-cooled engine with fuel injection, capable of producing 20-25 PS.
