TVS Motors, the Hosur based bike company that has made waves in the sport biking culture of Asia with its model, the Apache RTR is now all set to launch the same model but with full fairings! The Apache RTR offered in Asia is offered in the 160 and the 180 cubic displacement variants. The TVS Apache RTR 160 is a tough competitor to the very popular Yamaha R15 and the Bajaj Pulsar 150. A new version of the 160 is due to be launched in Asia and expectations have been riding very high on this face-lift. It is expected to be showcased at the 2012 Delhi Auto Expo to be held in January.
However, the expensive spares, vibrating mudguard, uncomfortable seats etc makes the bike not fairing very good at the reliability and build quality factor. Hopefully, TVS should resolve these glitches when they come out with the revised model. The TVS Apache with full fairings was showcased recently in Indonesia. The bike is definitely a looker and looks at first glance looks no less than a proper sports bike. The long headlights, full fairings and the thick tires make the bike look quite masculine too. The bike is definitely make waves in the Asian market once launched. We are eagerly waiting for this latest mean machine to come to Asia. Will this bike take the bike market by storm? What is your opinion?
