TVS Apache Stunt Team Sets New Record — Enters Asia Book Of Records

TVS Motor Company's premium motorcycle, the TVS Apache Series, created history by setting a new record for performing stunt at the highest altitude for the longest period of time. The performance has won them a place in the Asia Book of Records.

RTR 200 Stunt Team

As part of the Apache Pro Performance X (APPX), three stunt riders riding the TVS Apache RTR 200 V performed for an hour and 30 mins at an altitude of 14,800 feet. The record-breaking show was pulled off in a controlled environment. The performance was part of the second edition of the North Chapter of Apache Owners Group (AOG) ride from Chandigarh to Spiti Valley.

The stunt riders entertained the crowd with their skills and know-how on their Apache motorcycles. Stunts like the Jesus Christ pose, pillion thrill-ride, 360 degree front wheelie, synchronized flower burnout, suicide burnout, and a mega bike burnout as the grand finale kept spectators enthusiastic and in high spirits.

Spectators were thrilled to witness the record setting feet at such a high altitude, and the stunt team was proud to display the capabilities of the TVS Apache RTR 200 V to its customers, and to potential customers. The 12 day AOG ride flagged off on 15th June from Chandigarh, with 25 Apache customers from across the country. The event will end at Spiti Valley today.

The team

Back in 2017, the TVS Apache stunt team entered the record books with a non-stop 5-hour stunt show. This event was called the TVS Apache Pro Performance X - a step up from the popular Apache Pro Performance (APP).

A couple of weeks ago, on 09 June, 2019, the team broke their old record, creating a new one with a non-stop 6-hour stunt show at Pune. An initiative driven by TVS Racing, APP promotes performance prowess in a controlled environment. The idea behind these performances is the essence of the brand - Racing DNA Unleashed.

The first-generation TVS Apache was launched in 2005, and the motorcycle soon became a popular choice among youngsters. It was also rated as the best motorcycle in the Indian market. Over the years TVS added more to the portfolio, and now boasts of four models in the Apache line up - the RTR 160, the RTR 180, the RTR 200, and the TVS Apache RR 310.

This award-winning motorcycle series features learnings from the race track into its machines, and designs performance-oriented, technologically superior products aimed to create customer delight. TVS Motors has also created a series of initiatives to connect with their customer base.

Apache Racing Experience (ARE) is a platform where Apache owners get exclusive experience experiencing the racing DNA of their TVS motorcycles under the guidance of National Road Racing Champions from TVS Racing.

The TVS Apache Owners Group (AOG) has been created to be a common platform for customers to share their enthusiasm for motorcycling. AOG rides have been conducted in over 35 cities, with over 3000 participants. The brand also engages in performance shows such as Apache Pro Performance (APP) which create widespread customer engagement and taps potential customers.

Thoughts About The Record Set By The TVS Apache Stunt Team

Kudos on a job well done! We are very impressed with the motorcycles, and more impressed by the lads who are part of this stunt team. It is difficult to ride at those altitudes, let alone perform stunts. We're sure the team will outperform themselves in time to come.
