Have they done a wind tunnel test on this weird thing? from the look of it, feels like this would get blown away at high speeds like a speed boat on choppy seas, because of the strange contraption on the bonnet

I wonder why there is no separate thread for Toyota motors? They have some exciting launches.

Hmmm.. Camry's now got an Audiesque tail light. Anyways did anybody get a picture of the CBR 150? Or was it not displayed at all?

I was expecting KTM to be showing of too.

but one things for sure, if it goes on as the plan is described, its gonna sell for sure. we have a huge chunk of the population which thinks mr. chhabria is the best indian designer ever and that the stuff he comes up with is super cool. (no disrespect intended)

all said and done, he sure is known around the world and probably is the person responsible for india on the international map of design driven work by an individual in automotive field. there are others of course working with the leading brands but then no ones come up with his own company.

When is the RTR 250 FXm being released?
It looks like finally we are going to get a real off-roading bike. Hero Impulse coming with a 150cc engine was a disappointment.

@highway_star,

TVS have had the RTR250 for sometime now, its not road legal but a competition only bike they use at motocross events.

They developed this when the TVS vs Yamaha competition was at its peak. Its an assortment of competition parts from various suppliers globally, the engine I think is from Rotax.

The only real exciting launch one can expect from TVS soon is the updated Apache which will have a major cosmetic overhaul.

From what I have heard from some inside sources on the racing circuit, there was no real "development" involved. This bike is supposedly almost fully a de-badged KTM.

@GTO and team, no love for Mahindra this time?

Someone please click some pics and start their thread! I know they are not launching anything new per se but Thar Version 2.0 / any improvements?

That RTR 250 FXm looks very promising. Any more pictures of the same ? Also , the fact that it has an in house 250cc mill should hint about a future rtr with increased capacity.I feel with a stage so big , TVS should have launched a 200/220 cc rtr or atleast upgraded the 180.
