TVS always take their sweet time whenever they want to launch a new product. However, the new Apache RTR 160 4v was launched much earlier than expected. The Supreme court’s mandatory ABS rule is obviously to be given credit here.
Recently TVS sold 1 Lakh Apache RTR 160 4v and all of this was achieved in just a span of 6 months. With such a huge accomplishment, one must wonder, what is exactly the reason behind it. If we look closely, then there are a lot of them.
I love the TVS Apache RTR 200, especially its race spec, 2.0 model. The bike is smooth, grunty and lightweight for all intents and purposes. The highway stability of the bike is also really good, thanks to the 37 mm forks. The top speed of this bike is around 130 km/h on a good day but a guy has managed to take it beyond 150 km/h in his top speed test. You can see the video-
The impact of the new 4-Valve counterbalanced engine is easily visible. According to many reviewers, the bike vibrates. I, however, find this statement to be untrue. There is a clear distinction between a slight buzz and the so-called “Vibrations”, a term which people use to describe almost every single cylinder bike.
It is the battle of the century. The fight which will make or break empires. These are the two Titans which will carry their kings to the true heights of glory. I mean kidding aside, it’s these type of motorcycles which actually bring in the sales for the company. The whole cycle of R&D depends upon these bikes, more on that some other time. Today let’s compare the TVS Radeon and Hero Splendor. But since performance isn’t the forte of these motorcycles, we will compare them on the basis of "For they will be bought". Let’s begin.
It is often the case that the "scooter-crowd" gets ignored by the media because they are not as fast and fun to ride as the motorcycles. That's why today we are going to compare 2 capable TVS scooters, The Ntorq and The Jupiter ZX-Disc, in order to determine which one is best for you.
The prototype is defined as “A first or preliminary version of a device or vehicle from which other forms are developed”. Why is it so that the product made before usually looks more advanced than the product developed after its worked upon? Let’s dive in and check probable reasons.
From Honda to Bajaj, Colour update or as the Motorcycle Industry likes to call it “Graphical Update” has been the Ultimate tool for Manufacturers to justify releasing a “new” model of the same bike. It has become nothing short of a half-baked attempt to lure in more customer, in order to hand over them the same old product. We think its about time that this whole “process” must update itself, as no longer a simple colour update supports the definition of a revised Motorcycle.
With the RTR family already consisting of so many members, does it makes sense to bring out a 180 4v model? Let’s compare RTR 160 4v and RTR 180 to see how much different of the on-road performance do these guys translate.
Scooter market has seen its share of advancements in India thanks to Honda and TVS. Both of these companies have gained massive ground in scooter territory and still, they continue to improve. Their latest offering the Grazia 125 from Honda and Ntorq from TVS have changed the concept of a commuter scooter. These scooters have re-imagined the segment into a performance-oriented landscape for the better. Let’s see how these scooters fare when pitted against each other.
