TVS Motors is on a roll. Continuous new launches has not made them content and next on the cards is the launch of the most powerful TVS bike ever, the TVS Apache RTR 220. Internal sources reveal the Apache 220 to be more powerful with the bigger 220cc mill producing close to 22bhp. The bike will also get full faring along with a segment first – ABS. The bike is expected to cost close to Rs. 95,000/- and will be available by April, 2010.

“If the market demands, we will look into the high-powered bike segment of above 200 cc category. This 200cc TVS bike could be either a sports bike or a bike with racing DNA. At this point of time TVS has not made any firm decision on this aspect,”
TVS Motor Company President (Marketing) H S Goindi said.

Wow. ABS on a bike is a great feature and especially on a bike. But i think it would have better if it was redesigned with a taller structure.

I completely agree with you buddy. It will be really a pity to see the 220cc gen of apache in the same old clothes.
