It is also being speculated that the petrol motor will produce a maximum power of 28 PS and best-in-class torque of over 20 Nm. Power could be delivered to the wheels through a six-speed manual gearbox. It is assumed that the new TVS Apache’s cooling system has been inspired from BMW Motorrad’s GS models.

Other features of the upcoming sports bike include a single halogen headlamp, a mudguard integrated LED tail lamp, digital instrument console, minimal fairing and a telescopic front fork, offset monoshock on suspension arm, split seat, wide rear tyre and also a mobile charging point. The braking power will be derived from front as well as rear petal disc brakes, it also gets Draken X21 inspired muscular fuel tank, alloy wheels design inspired from the Draken concept, and an octagonal exhaust can having two outlets. The next generation TVS Apache is expected to be priced around Rs. 1 lakh (ex-showroom) and will compete with the likes of KTM Duke 200, Yamaha R25, Bajaj Pulsar 200NS, Mahindra Mojo, Benelli TNT 25 and the upcoming Hero HX 250R.
