Wow! Thats good news. Just dont want it to be a testing phase on the customers and implement it in 250cc [rumored to be released in Diwali] with the flaws corrected. Hope they get it right the first time round. It will be a delight.

That is great news. Maybe we'll see some improvement in the after market systems available.

@Abhinav

Could you please point me to a link about the 250 cc? Thanks in advance bro!

Its in the same thread as the Honda 250 news. Nothing concrete as of now. The same article mentions about TVS planning to launch a 250 by Diwali as well.

Apache RTR ABS is finally here! Hopefully, prices will be sweet as well! Anyways, full credit to TVS for bringing this technology in affordable bikes.

Hopefully, Bajaj, Yamaha and Honda will follow this trend soon!

So now another bike with DC electricals. Good to see bikes with steady lamps but bad for good riders. Now we will see more highbeams blinding our eyes even at 0 speed. Before giving any such system or even ABS our beloved bikers in the this country(the ignorant/adamant ones) should be taught about the features available and their proper usage.

What 200 and 250? Is the launch of the bigger CC-ed variants confirmed or speculation?

Couldn't watch the video completely. Was there a mention about DC electricals? Can you please confirm?

How much harm can a 35W light do? Even if it is dc?

Most cars use two 60W lamps up front, and that too, upgraded to 100/90 and all!
