  • TVS Apache 160 Hyper edge ready for launch

    Hi All,

    Here I come again with a great news for all RTR fans and performance lovers, as there has been a number of new launches from other manufacturers in this segment so how can TVS be far behind. Here comes the answer to all the other bikes in this segment to keep TVS Racing's nose up and high. TVS is all set with Apache 160 Hyper Edge for launch, it will be out in the month of Septemner,10.

    Will come back with more indepth information soon on this thread, till then keep drooling!!!

    Regards
    Dr. Manan

    Conversation with Head Motorcycle Group of TVS Mr. Arun Siddharth


    Hi Sid,

    It has been great to know that TVS has yet again got ready to delight the
    customers of the 150 and above segment with it's Apache 160 Hyper Edge.
    Request you to please let know some of the query that I would have to
    share with the world

    1. Do we really have something like Apache 160 Hyper Edge in the
    making?

    Yes

    2. How will this be different from already avaialbel Apache 160?

    We will make a press announcement on the subject at an appropriate time


    3. What will happen to the current Apache 160, are we planning to phase
    it out?

    No

    4. Is it that Apache 160 Hyper Edge has been code named as Hyper Edge?

    No Comments

    5. When are we planning to launch the same?

    We shall be in the market in a couple of months

    6. What will be the specs for Apache 160 Hyper Edge if it is at all a truth?

    Press announcement will address the same

    7. Why TVS has been so quite for long and did not let the info or clue about this new arrival come out before?

    Announcement needs to be made at an appropriate time

    8. There has been lot of speculations and expectations about performance of the coming bikes of TVS, will this be an aswer to the
    customers' expectations?

    All RTR franchise vehicles are meant for the Performance enthusiast.

    9. What is the future vision of TVS Racing for Apache RTR Series, as TVS has in recent past has been able to change it's perception
    from conservative commuter bike company to performance lovers' choice?

    TVS Racing will continue to be the leader in developing the RTR range of motorcycles as RTR is a FOR THE RACER , BY THE RACER brand

    10. Is there any other bike also in line from TVS racing in this year or later?

    No comments

    11. How TVS is planning to price Apache 160 Hyper Edge to compete with all the other rivals available, which I believe should not
    be an issue with TVS atleast ?

    Press announcement will follow on the subject.

    12. Will this varient of Apache also focus on the style seekers?

    No RTR brand is focussed for ONLY PERFORMANCE ENTHUSIASTS. but it'll have contemporary Stylish accents to make it look Race
    Sporty



    13. Like all other variants of RTR is it also been tested specifically on the race tracks in India and Abroad?

    Yes

    14. Last time when RTR 180 got launched it was speculated that it was getting benchmarked with R15 initially, however later-on the
    same has been discarded as RTR 180 Menace was found more aggressive in performance by the engineers in Indian conditions (as
    reported in one of the blogs in Xbhp.com). So which bike has been benchmarked this time?

    No comments this time


    15. Do you really test your bikes yourselves on the race tracks before giving it to the customer, unlike other manufacturers who
    use customers as Gineau pigs?

    Yes all bikes are tested by R & D and TVS Racing rigorously before being launched in accordance with TVS Quality
    norms.



    Thanks and hope for quick responses of questions in my mind.

    Regards

    Dr. Manan Chaturvedi

    Although, there is no source mentioned for this news, but coming from YOU, it HAS to be genuine!

    It would be great if you could give us a brief on the engine and other stuff too, Manan.

          So after RTR 160 "Refresh", its "Hyper Edge" this time.

          Coming from the guy who first broke the RTR 180 (Code named: Menace) new, I will take this piece of news to be true.

            HYPER EDGE....

            Do i smell redesigned 3 valve head from the SRV125, forged piston,re tuned exhaust, and engine producing 18.65PS???

            If yes, yamaha R15 should hold it's pants tightly.

            Where the heck are those kits????

                Nops, in all probability the info is not related to racing kits.

                It's been 3 years the 160 hasn't got any updates in it's engine. So this was long overdue. Expect 7-8% increase in torque and power ratings.

                  Ok's.
                  Then we can expect, smoothness, more low end torque ironed out vibes, no tacho needle shaking, a good and correct fuel bar display to name a few.

                      @Aryan as per the rules my suggestion is to "Temporarily Lock" this thread as there is no official/source in the news or it can be moved to the Speculation Thread...

                      @Manan bhai don't take this as personal, because the rules are applicable for everyone.

                      As per the news what's this Hyper edge technology means?

                              I am also hoping 17-inch wheels,tubeless tyres (better ones) and thicker/stronger front forks.
