TVS Apache 180 soon – The Menace | Nitin Khatri's Blog

80K on road

seems like TVS is going the bajaj way, I just wish they get this engine smother than the RTR,

Both bajaj and TVS are playing around with a single engine. Why cant they do something new?

Hhaaha JK, just what i though after the HH's passion, glamous et all that.
Lately there has been a spurt of TVS, only if they can hold it together for the 'menace' they'd have something to look ahead.

Well as of now nothing is fixed the features & prices listed are all speculative.

@Ruffryder: it would be good if you also quote the source of your post.

Menace??

They're seriously running out of ideas for motorcycle names in India. The nickname for this bike would be Dennis, I guess?

Mohave would've been a good successor to Apache. Menace doesnt sound menacing enough - it sounds more like a nuisance.

1) The Street Dog Menace
2) Rat Menace
3) Animal Menace
