TVS May Also Launch New Apache RTR 160 & 180 [Speculation]

We talked about the new Draken-based Apache 200 yesterday which, according to PT TVS Motor Company Indonesia’s President, R. Anandakhrisnan, is under works and will be launched within the coming months. There are some more inputs he has thrown…

After translating this article at Otomotif.Kompass, it appears that he also said…

Kemunculannya diprediksi berbarengan dengan Apache RTR 180 dan 160 dengan tampang baru.

According to Google’s translator, this hints at the possibility of new RTR 180 as well as 160 with refreshed looks.

Apache series was launched in 2007 and the RTR 180 ABS was introduced in 2011. Since then, both the motorcycles have been running around with not many changes. Apart from one or two special editions here and there and a facelift, not much has been done to the bikes.

Minor power bumps along with refreshments to its looks will equip the motorcycles to compete with its rivals which are increasing by the day. TVS  recently launched the new 2015 Phoenix which looks a good prospect and officials have confirmed that they will re-launch the new Victor brand as well as a bigger motorcycle this year in terms of new products.
