Indian motorcycle firm TVS might not be particularly well known outside of its home market, but during the year to March 2012 it sold over two million machines.
To help maintain that kind of popularity, the company has just announced a series of updates to its Apache RTR series.
The changes mainly focus on the looks of the bikes, and include redesigned tank side panels, a more aggressively styled belly pan, LED running lights and refreshed instruments that get blue backlighting.
Lead-in model for 2012 is the Apache RTR 160, which features a 14 bhp (11 kW / 15 PS) engine and is capable of 73 mph (118 km/h). Available in green, grey, red or yellow dual-tone colour schemes, it is priced at Rs. 67,505 (ex-showroom in Delhi), which is around £790 / €970 at current exchange rates.
For those wanting a little extra power, the Apache RTR 180 can reach 77 mph (124 km/h) thanks to its 16 bhp (12 kW / 17 PS) engine. Costing Rs. 72,090 (about £840 / €1,030), paintwork choice is black, grey, yellow or white.
The larger capacity Apache is also offered with anti-lock brakes, in which guise it comes in either black or white. The RTR 180 ABS has a price tag of Rs. 82,780, approximately £970 / €1,190.
