Performance

This concept bike is totally focus on racing performance. But TVS always try to keep its brand value and rider’s comfortability with superior performance. We can’t say, this bike will as comfortable as RTR 200 in city condition. But we can expect most comfortable riding experience in its segment. If we talk about mileage than its expected mileage in City could be 25 – 28, and on highway 35 kmpl. We are expecting very competitive and attractive price tag for this by TVS.

This concept is looks as Moto GP motorcycle, but its production ready variant will have many changes. As we have seen before, Draken was revealed as concept bike but production-ready Apache RTR has lot of changes. This bike also could be launch with the title ‘Apache’, it could have a new name as ‘Apache 300’.

TVS doesn’t announce its launching date till yet, but found on Indian road during testing is enough to say that, it will launch soon. We are expecting that TVS will launch it on March – April 2017. In Indian 2-wheeler market its main competitor will Bajaj RS 200, KTM RC 200, KTM RC 390, KTM Duke 390, Honda CBR 250 and Kawasaki Ninja 300.
