Default TVS Motors reveals new paint jobs for Phoenix and Apache

Link to News Section

With the Indian festive season on in full swing, TVS Motors has given two of its hot selling products a mild refresh to keep up with the festive fervour. Both the Phoenix 125 commuter motorcycle and the Apache RTR 160 sports commuter get new paint jobs. While the Phoenix 125 gets an Alpine White paint scheme with accompanying new graphics, the Apache RTR 160 makes do with new graphics plastered onto each of the five single tone paint schemes the motorcycle is available with.

The white paint shade for the Apache RTR 160 is a new addition, with the colour borrowed from the Apache RTR 180, which is available in two shades: Black and White. Prices of both these motorcycles remain unchanged. The Apache RTR 160 is priced at 69,795 rupees while the Phoenix 125's disc brake-electric start equipped variant is priced at 53,140 rupees, both prices representing ex-showroom Delhi figures.

The TVS Apache RTR 160 got a makeover more a year ago, with many enthusiasts deriding the new design direction and dual tone paint job that the facelift brought to the table. TVS' decision to go back to the single tone paint job on the RTR 160 might find greater acceptance among sports commuter motorcycle buyers. The Apache is powered by a 160 cc, four stroke-single cylinder engine that outputs 15.2 Bhp-13.1 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5 speed manual gearbox. The motorcycle gets a petal disc brake up front while an electric starter is standard.

The Phoenix 125 is TVS Motors' answer to the likes of the Hero Glamour, Honda Shine and the Bajaj Discover 125 motorcycles. The motorcycle is powered by a 125 cc four stroke engine that outputs 10.8 Bhp-10.8 Nm. The Phoenix 125 is available in two variants: Drum Brake-Electric Start and Disc Brake-Electric Start. A fully digital instrumentation cluster and a petal front disc brakes are the two notable features on this motorcycle.

Apache 160 looks much more digestable now with the single tone paint scheme.
However, not a big fan of the Phoenix paint Job.
