    I believe ABS is mendatory for all 2 wheelers above 125cc since April 2019. Is TVS going to fit ABS along with Drum Brakes ???

    Thumbs up Re: TVS launches BS-VI 2020 Apache RTR 200 4V And 160 4V

    How times have changed?

    Earlier, we used to see if power and torque and features have increased or not.

    Now, when we see a new BS6 launch, we see whether the compromise is there or not...

    Many of them fulfill their humble duty by fitting single channel ABS, one applicable only on the front brake.

    Sad. But again, many of us bikers prefer it that way, because front lockup is often has a bad ending, while rear locking, not quite. Duke 390 even got updated with such a "mode" called Supermoto ABS.

    Haha, yeah. The BS6 launches are mostly depressing, plummeting power esplly with the poor FZ.

    I surely cannot be the only one who finds the front end utterly horrendous.
    It's right up there with the previous RTR facelift (2014, was it?)

    I have a feeling that TVS has a different styling department for the initial development, and a group of 5 year olds for the facelifts

    I might be one of few who like this design. I personally like the aggressive styling.

    I even liked the 2014 facelift as well.

    You're not alone bro, it looks like someone punched Apache in the face and its jaw dislocated. Maybe they do have those two departments.
