TVS Apache RTR with ABS. hooo hooo!!!!!

I was watching the RTR with ABS test on television the other day and was impressed with the technology on this bike. It was true ABS in action. One take was the Apache with no ABS but with supports and you could see the vehicle slide left and right. And on the other take was the Apache with the ABS and no supports and voila! it is still on road. It just signifies how important of such a feature on a bike. You could just be safe. And what more you can turn it on and off. Its just amazing. The ABS is usually equipped in heavy duty bikes like the Hayabusa but it would be first of its kind on an Indian bike.

I got to see one in Koramangala and something did not seem right with this car. The rear looked blunt and unfinished in design but the front end was satisfying.  What is really impressive in this car is its interiors. It quite good for the Indian market and upto the standard everyone look for. Estimated mileage per liter is 13.4 kms and is packed with all the goodies we see nowadays. Soft touch dashboard, engine start / stop button, rear AC vents, rain sensitive wipers, rear parking sensors and lots more. Priced at 14.5 lacs and with all these equipments is it worth it? Well... you decide.
