Have a look at the bike from the following link. I think its got the killer looks for its class. Can only confirm when i see it in flesh. Its got 5 gears also

It does look great. It looks solid with those black mags. And the best thing is that they have better tyres ( thats what the paper says!). Kudos TVS.

More competition for Unicorn I guess. Now we have HH Achiever, Honda Unicorn, Puslar 150 and Apache.

Kudos to Mr. Venu Srinivasan and TVS.

Apache's got great styling, looks very sporty. This looks like a serious compititor for the Pulsar atleast in the styling.

I am not that sure about the looks. There are too many lines running around. Complicated look. The head light is beefy, but has got too many sharp edges. And the rear section, particularly the stop light, is not good at all. No idea about the side view... But still have to wait till we can see it in flesh.

BTW why tvs is not making any noice about this? I have not seen any ads so far...

also thanks for the pics.

Looks good. I am happy that TVS (my ex-employers) finally woke up and got some real stylists on the job.

But I still havent seen the side view of the bike....if this is the same one that appears in Autocar, then the wheel-to-rear panel relationship still does not look quite right. What do you guys think?

Probably waiting for Mahendra Singh Dhoni to finish playing cricket.

Usually internet is the first place to get the news. I think the mass campaigns will start in January 06.

It will beat pulsar and unicorn if we keep with Tvs's history of bikes.

Even Acheiver AD started coming on TV after one month of bike launch. Maybe that is the new trend delay of AD
