For many reasons Indonesian motorcycle market has been in the news of late. Yes yes, all we envy them for they have the R25 and we all are waiting in anticipation and hope..
Nonetheless, our Indian TVS Motors has launched the new Apache XVENTURE Edition in Indonesia. The special edition, it seems, will be a mainstream model add-on and may not be limited to a few specific units. It is available only on the Apache 180, which was already present in Indonesia.
The only difference that we can note is the different and snazzier color theme and new graphics. The ‘X’ of Xventure gets a special mention on the tank as well as the engine cowl. Apart from that the tank scoops carry the Xventure badging. Unlike other special editions, the Apache 180 Xventure is available in 4 color options, all of which are showcased on this page.
- Black with Golden graphics
- White with Black Graphics
- Red with Black Graphics
- Green with Black Graphics
Rest, every nut and bolt, including the engine appears to be the same. Indonesian Apache 180 produces 17.03 hp of peak power and 15.5Nm of torque from its 177.4cc single cylinder engine. It zips to 60kmph in 4.2 seconds and has a claimed top speed of 118kmph! All these specs are exactly same as the Indian-spec Apache 180, with the exception of top speed. In India TVS claims a top whack of 124kmph.
TVS has also showcased their latest concepts – 250cc Draken and Graphite scooter in Indonesia showing intent to launch them in the sub continental country when they go into production. Here in India, TVS has very recently launched the Apache in Matte Black calling the new color as X-Men Edition.
