Chennai-based TVS Motor Company, a leading manufacturer of two- and three-wheelers has delivered 25 Apache RTR 160 motorcycles to the Bangalore city police.
The flagship motorcycle and the premium bike brand of TVS Motor Co, the Apache has been one of the popular sellers for the company in the mid-size segment and has been seeing growing demand. In September 2020, the Apache clocked sales of 37,788 units, improving on August’s 33,540 units. In early August, the company hiked prices for multiple models -- Apache RTR 160, RTR 180, RTR 160 4V and RTR 200 4V -- in its line-up by around Rs 1,000 but that would have done little to dampen buyer enthusiasm for the Apache.
On October 12, total Apache sales rode past the 4 million unit sale milestone globally. This premium brand was launched in 2005, which makes it the ride from zero to 4,000,000 units has taken 15 years. Interestingly, the last million or 10 lakh unit sales have come in just two years. The TVS Apache crossed the three-million-sales milestone on September 10, 2018.
TVS Motor Company handed over 25 units of TVS Apache RTR 160 motorcycles to the Bangalore City Police personnel in the presence of the Basavaraj Bommai, Home Minister, government of Karnataka and Bangalore Police Commissioner Kamal Pant by Meghashyam Dighole, head - (Marketing) Premium Motorcycles, TVS Motor Company.
