The apache looks are great.But the age of the bike doesnt cross a month,but the engine tends to sound like a buzz.Further vibration is felt that makes me irritating.I had approached the service centre and asked them to solve the issue.Other than the loss of payment,nothing else left with the improvement
apache RTR is a nice bike with its look,pickup.filling my petrol tank for Rs300 a week,I could cover the distance upto 230-250kms.But the problem lies in the silencer,rather than chasnging the tyre that found to be slippery I changed the silencer that got rusted,now,there is no problem with teh silencer
