No offence buddy.
But are you a TVS insider?
I wouldn't be surprised if you yourself are the person who posted this video.

Nevertheless, it's a very nice video []

Nicely positioned cameras! Cool job for an Ad! But, it went for ah-so little longer or was it the buffering of U-tube that got me?
And, why Vega helmets with those racy machines?? No offence meant to Vega, but, when you've agv's and kbc's available, those vega's looked a bit out of place!

The other promos for the Fi carry exhaust notes from the MotoCross Mania PC game. Sounds Sexy!

Neat ad nevertheless!

The guy on the orange RTR is one of our national champs and my team mate K.Rajini, the other guy must be Harry or Karthick (both tvs racers) Nicely done!

the ad is awesome, but all this just for 160 FI and not a higher cc bike, i did expect more but thats okay, they kept their reputation and we need to wait for more time to see bigger bikes ( no offenses meant though).

I read somewhere that TVS would launch bigger capacity bikes. The bike platforms are supposed to have been developed in cooperation with the Italian design firm, Engine Engineering Spa, which was recently bought by Mahindra.
Any info about that?

Also they'll come up with a new Apache every six months, to keep the product fresh and the interest.
