TVS Bikes at Auto Expo 2018: TVS Motor is raising concerns of other brands in scooter segment with their recently spied Graphite. It will definitely be a showstopper at Auto Expo 2018, bringing some real competition to Suzuki Burgman Street and Honda scooter concepts of 2018.
Apart from that, fans will witness the presence of Apache RR 310 in both mouth watering shades. TVS Jupiter is already available in a lot of shades and introducing new ones may refresh the scooter’s image for coming months. Expecting a face-lift is not that practical as Jupiter is almost fetching around 1 million buyers safely in 2017.
How can we forget those two spotted Apache models that looked somewhat like RTR 200. Yes, those two are most probably 2018 Apache RTR 180 and RTR 160. After updating these bikes, they will focus on the commuter series of bikes and expecting new shades for Sport and Star City Plus could be a right guess.
TVS may update their engine lineup and bring more power to lower placed Apache variants. The design update will make them more in-line with rivals like Yamaha FZ-S, Honda CB Hornet and Suzuki Gixxer.
TVS Graphite was once seen as a concept at Auto Expo and this year, it may get an exclusive entry into the power scooter segment. TVS was seen working on electric scooters at certain occasions and Auto Expo 2018 can mark as an entry point for them in this segment.
Presently, Hero manufactures electric scooter and thus, will serve as a rival brand to TVS electric arm. They will bring some new concepts this year, most of them hinting at models that may arrive after the BS6 norms comes into action. TVS is India’s third largest two wheeler brand with the parent group having diverse investments in three wheeler and finance sectors in India as well as abroad.
