TVS certainly got its "model's" right.
Yes, Thanks to Jalsa777 for that.

And no radical concept model for Apache? They could have used this occasion to gauge the public response for a radical design change.

Yes, TVS is an Indian company. All our Indian bike companies have significant export markets. Models vary from markets. "Underbones" such as the Tormax are very popular in markets such as Indonesia and Malaysia (and they are raced as well), but do not/have not found much favour in India. I do not know if the Hero Puch can be classified as a great success but it was possibly the only popular moto-scoot. All other's have sunk without a trace.

Agreed. The picture has been removed. Unfortunately, the other pictures taken at the same time were also inappropriate, thus there is no replacement to share.

Not only exports. TVS has it's own plant in Karawang, Indonesia.

Sweet! Minimalistic and nice! Seems to have been inspired by space age stuff. Since its a hybrid too (with a 100cc petrol motor), we can say the future of the Indian scooter is finally here

This scooter reminds me of Stanley Kubrick's 1968 movie, 2001: A Space Odyssey. The headlamp and tail light somehow bring to mind the movie's antagonist, the HAL 9000 computer The LCD display and other robot-like parts that seem to have a life of their own, give off an impression that this scooter can drive itself without human intervention!

Would love to see this soon on Indian roads.
