      someone please test drive the bike and tell if there is any difference in the feel of the bike.
      Adrenaline and petrol can be a lethal combination

        • I happened to see a HyperEdge near my office. When I came out of the hotel after having dinner, a black HE was parked next to my RTR180. The stickers look good. The bike as a whole doesnt look much different. AFAIK, the changes in looks are - the new stickers, same rear fender as 180, same handle bar weights... waited for some 15 mins hoping to meet the owner, but to no avail...

            TVS, if you are reading this... then the underlined part is a fair indicator of how much the rtr loyalists expected from yo0u..

                Yeah thats what... Despite having a bigger RTR you waited for a complete stranger to know more about the bike... is a faint indicator!

                • People always have great expectation from TVS perfomance bikes.. Little OT.. See the TVS videos uploaded recently.. Lot of new videos added..

                  YouTube - tvsmotorcompany's Channel

                  The above url shows TVS specta development. The efforts they put on that time for the product develpment. But sadly it was a flop due to its price..

                    • TVS and Hero Honda are crazy friends from a long time.
                      TVS does some techno freak thing,Hero Honda stickers Honda engines.....

                      But now TVS is stepping in the HH way totally.

                      But TVS shouldn't really discontinue the RTRFi(in another news I have heard that Karizma R has been stopped too by Hero Honda !!!).......for this

                      Maybe TVS revamped RTR160 just the way Hero Honda plans to revamp their Hunk.

                        • Finally i rode the HYPER EDGE today. I couldnt rip the bike as the bike was new and the chain was a bit loose and was making some weird noises. Anyways i liked the grunt. Basically it felt completely same as the RTR 160 but the main difference was that there were very less vibrations compared to the old RTR. I liked the power delivery too throughout the rev range. Though i wont call it as an upgrade but this could very well can be called as the RTR refresh. Now it a good option for the riders who used to ignore the RTR because of the vibes

                              Damn i didnt . It was day time and totally forgot about it. I even didnt look at the speedo. I was just staring at the RPM needle on the tacho . the only thing i noticed was that even after the HYPER EDGE crosses 6k rpm, it was still smooth .
