Two-wheeler major, TVS Motor Company today
announced the launch of its premium segment motorcycle, the Apache RTR
160 RD. The Apache RTR 160 RD now comes with a factory fitted 200mm Rear
Petal Disc Brake. Since its launch the Apache RTR has been a runaway
success due to its superior power and performance derived from its
Racing Throttle Response, which still is the benchmark in the above
parameters. With the introduction of 200mm Petal Rear Disc brake, the
Apache RTR adds a new performance dimension offering Incomparable
Braking Performance, thereby matching the aspirations of the youth of
today for a fast, muscular, powerful and yet, latest on safety
parameter, motorcycle designed to give vent to their desire of an
unmatched and superior racing performance.
The Apache was the company's first sporty motorcycle with chiseled
looks, unmatched performance and superior engine technology which
represented the new spirit of the company young, vibrant, aggressive and
committed to create innovative motorcycles that employ the latest
technology and design to match international standards.
"Apache is the result of TVS racing heritage and has been born on the
racetrack and was built to redefine and set a benchmark in the
Performance Segment, both in terms of leading edge technology and design
styling. We took the Apache to the next level with the launch of the RTR
or Racing Throttle Response, an integration of superior R&D efforts and
application of lessons learnt on the vindictive racing tracks in India.
We therefore created a premier street bike, high on performance by
combining TVS Racing's technology with R&D know how. This was followed
by the introduction of fuel injection technology for the first time in
the 160 cc category. We have now introduced the option of a rear disc at
a nominal price. The priority in every step of the Apache brand's
development has been Performance. Every system, detail and component has
been tuned to maximize Performance" said H S Goindi, President,
Marketing TVS Motor Company.
The disc brake variant is available at a nominal premium of Rs. 2000/-
over the existing rear drum brake version.
