Apache 200 Single Channel ABS variant was launched only last month and TVS has updated its price. We have never seen such endless price hikes ever!
This is getting extremely unfathomable – what are makers trying to do – so blatantly! After the COVID-led disruption people had to halt their buying decisions and quite naturally, they are now out in the market to buy new motorcycles and cars – but why are manufacturers trying to extract all their lost profits at one go!
There has been incessant price hikes in this complete year. Joining the fray is TVS’ Apache 200 single channel ABS variant which was launched on 22 September 2020 at Rs 1,23,500 (launch story). Barely within a month, TVS has increased its prices to Rs 1,25,000 – an increment of Rs 1500 or 1+ percent.
However, the good news is that it still is priced lesser than Hornet 180 which costs Rs 1,26,927. Recently, Bajaj also hiked the price of its Pulsar NS200 and it now costs Rs 1,31,219!
