The images suggest that the displayed version is for the Indian market, since the tyres fitted to the turbine style 5-split spoke wheels are from TVS. The export variant will be shod with Pirelli Angel-GT kit.

The provided colour options

The bike has created a lot of buzz in town, and is set to be out of the official wraps in just a few days. The bike looks like a decent package but lacks to stand apart. The power figures are not healthy enough to take down the Pulsars and KTM of the segment but the Apache is claimed to beat the KTM Duke 200 on the 0-60kmph phenomenon. While that is what the bike boasts about, but it is about time to see it lock horns with its competitors. Stay tuned for more info from the launch event and our review.

    This looks good. Now cant wait to see the bike in flesh. One thing that highly disappoints me. One that its Oil Cooled and not water cooled. Latter being much more efficient at cooling engines. Also wondering why there is that small Italian flag on the top right corner of the headlamp.

    Does not look so good as NS in terms of sharpness in styling but it can sell based on its build quality and cleanness in form. Specs are quite poor except for ABS, but i suspect something regarding its price…..
