TVS Motor Company has updated the full TVS Apache RTR series with ABS. The Apache RTR 160 2V, Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 180 have been upgraded with Super Moto ABS (single-channel) to enhance the safety to the rider. The new generation ABS is claimed to be developed with a special algorithm that has been derived out from the company’s racing experience.
On the other hand, the Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 continues to be available with Dual-Channel ABS and RLP (Rear wheel Lift-off Protection). With the implementation of ABS across the range, the TVS Apache RTR series is ready to comply with the new safety norms.
Commenting on the addition of ABS to the complete RTR series, KN Radhakrishnan, Director & CEO, TVS Motor Company said:
Since inception, TVS Apache series have revolutionised performance biking by introducing cutting edge technology from their factory racing versions. In 2011, we were the 1st manufacturer to introduce twin channel ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) on Apache RTR 180, in the Indian two-wheeler industry. In line with this tradition, today, we are delighted to announce the inclusion of Super Moto ABS across RTR 160; RTR 160 4V and RTR 180 versions. This one of a kind racing tuned ABS technology that ensures maximum dynamic performance along with cutting edge safety technology to our consumers. The motorcycles are already on sale in market to ensure proactive compliance to the regulatory requirement laid down by the Government of India.
The company also announced the launch of TVS Apache RTR 160 ABS with new features. The new model comes with an all-new, back-lit speedometer with dial-art, new seats and new handle-bar end dampeners. The refreshed model would also get new TVS Racing-inspired graphics.
