6 Apache RTR 160 Fi, Pulsar 220S, Platina 125, Passion Plus: Discontinued

A few models/variansts that have been discontinued.. "chupke se"

The following models/variants must have stopped arriving at the showrooms long back but they did appear on the official website of it's manufacturer. With the removal of information for the following models/variants from their respective official websites, their withdrawl/discontinuation now becomes official.

Hero removed details of the "Passion Plus" from its website when it became Hero MotoCorp from Hero Honda. A few weeks back Bajaj removed links to the "Platina 125" and "Pulsar 220S" and very recently TVS has removed it's fuel injected Apache RTR variant, the "Apache RTR 160 Fi" from it's website.

Looks like TVS had to ultimately follow Bajaj Auto by the way both has discontinued it's fuel injected models after it's much hyped launches. Why? Because you did not buy them.. that's why.

Congrats big time..!! The 200 Duke is an awesome little fun machine. That bike is all out fun.. and absolute hoot in the streets. Riding the 200 Duke reminds of how 2 stroke bikes used to feel.

About the above post, the bikini faired Pulsar 220 was also known as the Pulsar 220 S (Streetfighter).. that' why I mentioned about it so.

And yes, if possible do get a Dual Purpose Helmet / Off Road Helmet with Off Road Goggles along with the Duke.. it looks wicked.
