6th October Update: Abhisek has shared two more pics of the new blue colored Apache RTR 160 from the dealership and here we are inserting them in this article…
Oct 2, 2015: You may not know this, but TVS’ Apache series, despite not being the freshest products around, are witnessing some significant sales increments. For reference, from the April to August period, sales of the twins increased to 1,06,431 units from 76,213 units in the same period last year and this when the competition is at an all time high.
Apart from whatever is happening in the background, the company appears to be taking the tried and tested route of adding new colors to the palette. In a latest, our avid reader Abhisek has shared this pic of a new matte blue Apache 160 from some dealership and from the look and finish of it, this may just be an official introduction in the color list.
Currently, TVS offers Apache in the following five color options…
Blue may be the 6th addition or they may discontinue one or some of the existing colors. The website has not been updated with the change. TVS used to offer a metallic blue shade on the older Apache 150.
There appears no design changes or any other refreshes and the mechanicals are also expected to remain the same with the 15.2 bhp 13.1 Nm 159.7 cc motor continuing to perform duty. However, TVS is preparing a bigger Apache and the BMW-TVS K03 is also closer to its official unveiling.
