TVS Apache: 70 kpl?

TVS ApacheWhoa baby! I've just been told that a TVS dealer in Mira Road, Mumbai told one of my office colleagues some incredible news. He claimed that the Apache returned 70 kpl in real world riding.

No it isn't a new variant (or a real world where all roads run downhill). It's just one of those dealers-will-say-anything type of situations. Do you have a story like this to tell as well? Mail me.

Whoa!!! 70kmpl ?!!?..seems to far fetched. But I did get 62kmpl, Delhi- Manali, 3rd september,2005 on my Honda Unicorn. I have clocked 60kmpl a few times on and off inside Delhi on the same bike.

Note: In each of the above occassions I never crossed 80kmph in any gear ..he he!

Cheers,

hi friend,
Blog reads very well. Will visit more often. Anyway 70 km pl is impossible on Apache but 62-64 is possible even on mountain roads of Bhutan and bad roads of Bihar. We have got it. Check out our site to know more about our journey so far http://www.borderlessbikers.com
