apache strongly looks ahead to its mercurial opposite PULSAR as if to say 'i want ur crown..boy it looks red hot with 150cc 13.5 bhp and inbuilt mag wheels

lends it sme stunnin features...yh TVS defiantely has a knack of makin machines that work with indian attitude....i was a big admirer of TVS FIERO n APACHE is

no exception..though it wud b premature to make any early judgments about its fate bt it has to be said that if this one picks up TVS outdoes BAJAJs n

Herohondas..for once atleast..

Insider info whispers that TVS is gunning for the P150 with this, and an Apache 180~ in 6 months to complete the sweep.

Its not a 180cc upgrade but the 250cc bike. I saw it at the previous expo and it looks absolutely stunning.

My pal test Drove the APACHE, and he STILL VOTES FOR THE PULSAR!!!
Apache might be more comfortable. But from what i heard from him The 150 Can outperform the apache I think.

A pulsar outdo an apache???????? Noway man, Rode the bike and Damn! its smooth. Everything is slick about the bike. But thats just a glance thought. Would have to look at it after its on the road for a while. Only then can you really get to know the pros and the cons.


Rode it and love it. My opinion and no pulsars dont' stand a chance.

nice bike from reliable TVS. Hope the bikes that were on display in the Auto Expo by TVS get launched.

That's the normal phenomenon with all the magazine guys...They award the bike/car of the year to any newcomers without any serious research.

The magazines always had the habit of awarding bike/car of the year even to the models which had failed pathetically in the market later.

So never take these awards seriously.

But I don't have any bad feelings towards the Apache. Let the bike enter the market fully and we can review it ourselves.

TVS really should hire some good designers. The new Apache looks very boring. n the bike has pick up like a bajaj discover 125. AVG 45/50kmpl. Apache's rear really looks like a flat hyundai santro " kicked from back" !! need to improve chasis /lower engine vibes/ hav some good suspension position (bit wider) / Victor is good bike instead !!
