Long time no see, marinegopi.

Please share your RTR experiences. A lot of people seem to believe that TVS cannot make reliable bikes.

Wonder what makes you say that? As my experience has been just the opposite. Anyways, good decision on the bike.

Thumbs down

guys, didnt you notice one bad thing about all TVS bike, is that their hadles are small, for the bike sizes, Apache made me think on this as it shares the same handle design as the old Victor

But try to agree on one point brother... No bike in India handles better than Apache in city traffic...
