TVS Motor Company today announced the launch of its new 2012 Apache Series RTR with an all new beast themed styling. The new design, with all lines pulled back, all excesses eliminated and all curves chiseled to perfection, synergizes seamlessly with a high performance powertrain to look dynamic, even when stationary, says TVS Motors.
The new design and styling has been incorporated in all TVS Apache models including the 160, 180 and the 180 ABS.
“We have taken the Apache RTR to the next level with obsessive engineering and menacing design. 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 maximize performance. Apache as a brand has been very well received,” H S Goindi, President-Marketing, TVS Motor Company said.
The pilot lamps have been inspired by the ‘eye of fury’ – which consists of LED light guide technology combined with new pilot lamps to form a pair of intense animalistic eyes that is activated on ignition, night or day.
Chiseled and sharp tank shrouds constitute a revolutionary new aerodynamic package which helps reduce engine heat says TVS. A new digital console and a lot of carbon fiber accents distinguish the new variants.
As is plainly obvious from the various pictures leaked earlier, the new Apache will have new seat cowls, new engine cowl and ‘grunge’ graphics ( only on the 160 variant).
Four new dual tone colours, green, red, yellow and red with black as the base color for the 160 variant and white, yellow, grey and black for the 180 variant have been announced. ABS is still available only on the 180cc variant in black and white.
The new TVS Apache Series RTR is immediately available in TVS dealerships across the country. While the TVS Apache RTR 160 will cost Rs. 67,505 (Ex showroom Delhi), TVS Apache RTR 180 will be Rs. 72,090 (Ex showroom Delhi) and TVS Apache RTR 180 ABS will cost Rs. 82,780 (Ex showroom Delhi).
