TVS Apache

Apache is an exciting offer from TVS.

It has arrow shaped headlamp and fairing combo.

The large 16-litre fuel tank imparts TVS Apache's front a heavy look. Due to the elongated tank design and the lower height, the centre of gravity is closer to the ground.

Build features of TVS Apache include a matt-black finished alloy wheels, aluminum die-cast sub-frames, dual cradle chassis, six-spoke, rectangular-section swing arm for the rear wheel and a straight, and low-set handle bar. When one rides the bike, the design brings him in a lean-forward position.

The bike is available in colors like Classic Nero, Fiery Rojo, Pure Azul and Burnished Argent.

TVS Apache is powered by a 147.5cc engine, which produces a peak power of 13.5 bhp at 8,500 rpm.
