Thoughts About TVS Announcing The Price Of The Apache RTR 180 BS6 Model

We're impressed that TVS managed to keep an increase in costs at a minimum, and also because they've brought people closer to buying the 180 instead of the 160. We think the company should have offered a new paint scheme, considering it has been almost two years since its last update.
