Brace yourselves- a TVS Apache 250cc Variant should be coming by early next year. TVS have always been tinkering around with their Apache flagship, which has been characterized as a go-faster commuter motorcycle with a hint of track racing credentials. Now, the Hosur based two-wheeler major is plotting to take on the likes of the KTM RC200 and the Honda CBR250R with its new 250cc Apache offering- the makers’ first quarter liter motorcycle, rumored to be priced at the 1.3 lakh mark.
If 99Cars are to be believed, the new TVS Apache 250cc variant launch has been scheduled to take place on 14th January 2015. Also on the cards will be the updated RTR180- both the new bikes will feature a ‘Honda-like’ Combi Braking System and an improved ABS system. There’ll be Balancers to keep the NVH levels sane and the bikes are said to sport new Michelin soft-compound tires. What’s more interesting is that the Apache 250cc variant’s performance will be somewhat track-honed. Apart from that, these new offerings would in all probability share parts like the front mudguard, indicators, foot-pegs, rear disc brake assembly and handlebar grips with the RTR180.
The new 2015 Apache 250cc could also be powered by a similar engine, which was shown on the TVS Draken concept at the Auto Expo this year. The concept bike came with a 250cc, liquid-cooled engine promising a commendable 39PS peak power at 12,000rpm and 23Nm maximum torque at 9,500rpm- although in the TVS Apache 2015, the same engine should receive a different state of tune for a daily driving and fuel efficiency.
