    "six cylinders" for a 250cc??!! believable?

    Expected price of 220cc between Rs 90K – Rs 1M (one MILLION=TEN LAKH!?)

    If at all TVS 250cc hits 30bhp that too at a price of peanuts (compared to 3L), no nore Ninjas on Indian roads!?

    • Faizan says:

      dear friend, i probed a lot of stuff about RTR new models so as to provide information to my readers.

      6 cylinders is really weird but i wanted to pass on the same information as it came to me.

      and about ninja, price is not concise to power or displacement only, Green bike promises a lot then this.

    "The bike will be featuring six cylinders with a six speed gearbox. "

    ha ha ha!!!!

    I really doubt this 250 cc with 6 cylinders means each cylinder of 40cc. It be great if they have a twin cylinder, anymore is not feasible currently in India.

    BTW are they ever planning to launch?? They were supposed to launch in April and now its the 2nd week of May and still no news.

    • Faizan says:

      hi Anant,

      actually the fact is every possible information over RTR 250 is hearsay and just expected on the basis of the official team comments and staff sayings. There is still no design out from the marketing team. infact, no announcements made at 2010 Auto Expo.

      but if any thing will be out, you can definitely check it out at

  4. Arjun says:

    when will my wait end to see the all new apache rtr 180 abs on road….any information please?

    • Faizan says:

      Hi Arjun!
      TVS at the recent press release announced that they are working to introduce some power bikes in India. which shall fall within segment 200cc – 300cc. The bikes will feature all new trends including ABS. but it will take some time from the company side as they are looking for a free slot over launch. They must be watching for the time when there will be no other bike launch in queue for successful introduction.

  7. Faizan says:

  8. olmateu says:

  9. Karthik says:

    They have clearly mentioned as " six speed gearbox" and gear box is different from the Cylinder…which means they have not mentioned it having a Six cylinder…Please wipe your eyes for clear vision atleast before you drive.

  10. Cross says:
