@10k guess this would have even been marginally over the resale value of the bike at the time!

Everyone I know has been shysted one way or the other by them.. I will recommend stay faaaar away!!

hey BIDW, as far as accessories for apache is concerned like the body cover and stuff the idea is in the wing. no idea about the dates. wil let u know if i come to know of them see ya guys
Yes agree with Yesha about the TV ad. the product video is way better than the TV ad, I believe that they should have aired the product video instead of the TV ad. Wats ur views on that Yesha?

Default apache me????

apache is a definite no no for tall guys...... just not enough room and at slightly high speeds... u feel queasy.......

have a pulsar 180 all black and my roomie has an apache. cant help but compare the two........ the 180 just overwhelms the apache...
the apache has a starting problem and the engine takes a long time to reach a comforable idling speed.... also the finish leaves a lot to be desired compared to the black beast.

so apache...........naaaaaaaaaaaaaaah

hey shadow i think you are comparing a 150cc bike with 150cc one. why dont u compare it with p150 and then we can say if its good or not . and abt the tall ppl prob i agree with you a guy with more than 6ft height cannot ride this bike

My cousin bought one. He says he was warned not to ride it above 50kmph till 500km. And when he tried to do 50+ teh engine was kindof restricting teh bike. Is teh bike locked mechanically or electronically?
