4 What's up with TVS Motor in Indonesia? (News Archive- Apache RTR 160 Fi launched in India + Wallpapers)

Archived news on the launch of the TVS Apache RTR 160 Fi.. Plus updates on TVS Motor in Indonesia..

Following Bajaj Auto's Indonesian Foray, India's third largest two wheeler manufacturer, TVS motor had also set up its shop in Indonesia sometime back in 2007. Posted below are updates of TVS Motor's Indonesian Venture so far..

Even though TVS Motor has two products on sale in Indonesia, the 110 cc Step Thru "Neo" and the Apache RTR 160, a casual browse through the TVS Motor Indonesian Website will make it obvious that the main thrust of TVS in Indonesia is the "Neo" Step Thru..

TVS Motor has followed a trend of appointing celebrities as their brand ambassadors (remember Sachin Tendular in the past and MS Dhoni currently) in India. In the same vein, TVS Motor has roped in local celebrity Iwan Fals who happens to be a popular musician in Indonesia as their brand ambassador.

Here is wishing TVS Motor the best for its Indonesian Venture.

TVS Launches Apache RTR 160 Fi in India...

The post made below is meant to chronicle the launch of motorcycle(s) in India between May-Oct 2008 (the period during which "The Bike Chronicles of India" was briefly inactive)..

TVS Motor launched the Fuel Injected version of its Apache RTR 160 on 7'th July 2008. Currently the Apache RTR 160 Fi is priced around Rs. 68,000 (Ex-Showroom New Delhi), which makes it around Rs. 10,000 costlier than the carbureted Apache RTR 160.

The visual differentiator of the RTR 160 and RTR 160 Fi is the rear disc brake which the fuel injected version has incorporated as a standard feature. The graphic stripes on the RTR 160 Fi also has got a serrated design which differentiates it from the straight stripes of the carbureted RTR 160.

The tech specs of both the RTR 160 and the RTR 160 Fi are virtually identical. Just that the "Fi" variant makes slightly more max power of 15.9 Ps compared to the 15.5 Ps of the carbureted RTR 160. The Max Torque of both the variants remain Identical at 13.1 Nm.

as a indian returning to indonesia after 1.5 years, i was hugely excited to learn about tvs' eentry to the local bike maket. however, as a cursory glance on any road here will tell you, the japanese still have a stranglehold on the step-thru market. in tvs' favour are the odd swanky motorcycle showroom and a prominent billboard on a national highway.
