11 2012 TVS Apache RTR 160 - First Ever Photos

Spy photos of the 2012 TVS Apache RTR 160..

After spy pics of the 2012 Apache RTR 180 ABS found its way to the internet, photos of the new Apache RTR 160 too has surfaced. This time the photos are clearer and photos of the product leaflet have been clicked as well..!! The leaflet and the photos reveals that the upgrade on the new Apache RTR 160 is just cosmetic with the engine specs remaining identical.

PR Nightmare: With the spy photos of the Apache RTR 180 and 160 becoming viral, right now TVS has a PR nightmare to handle. Fans are hurling brickbats regarding the new Apache RTR's on the wall on the Apache RTR Fanpage. I found the styling of the original Apache RTR (till the Hyperedge version) a compact and tight package with nice proportions. But with its oversized tank scoops, the new bike looks a bit awkward to me.

Sorry TVS but this just doesn't seem like "Racing DNA".

The tank extensions are ugliest I have ever seen on any Indian bike.

.. have they fired the designers who designed the original apache...
this is what one can call design harassment..
is it me or is the headlight looking like old pulsar(2nd gen)..

Same story is repeated by TVS like other Indian brands.. Bring a model into the market..polish the thing for the next upgrade..then for the next year, add 2-3 more screws on the body..after that for the next year, change the graphics..to be continued..
Business-Engineering-Designing, no relation at all..!!

Second pic showing headlight in green color, that just looks like old pulsar. TVS needs to pull up it's socks if they want to remain in the premium bike market.
