TVS is conducting its first-ever international ride specifically for the Apache motorcycle owners group. A group consisting of 17 TVS Apache owners including men and women will travel together outside the country for the first time. It will be a 10 days ride and the bikers will cover a distance of 2000 km. The TVS Apache owners group has set off together from Siliguri, West Bengal and will travel up to Bhutan through the routes of Sikkim. The entire range of TVS Apache motorcycles will take part in the ride including the TVS Apache RTR, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, the TVS Apache RTR 180, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and the TVS Apache RR 310.
The TVS Apache Owners Group is a community consisting of passionate TVS Apache riders with a similar taste. The TVS Apache Owners Group shares a common platform to explore and spread their enthusiasm for motorcycling. The TVS Apache Owners Group rides are the fitting for the motorcycle enthusiasts who are willing to explore fantastic trails and remote locations on their TVS Apache motorcycles. The AOG has an active rider base in more than 35 cities. This is the first time AOG riders are going for an international ride while they have participated earlier in the rides across India.
The TVS Apache Owners Group after departing from Siliguri will reach the small bordering town of Phuntsholing. The team will then make their way towards Thimphu, the vibrant capital of Bhutan. The riders will then proceed to see the world’s largest Buddha Statue in Kuensel Phodrang. The adventure will make its way to Punakha valley along the banks of Mo Chu and Pho Chu – two of the most prominent rivers in Bhutan on the fifth day of the ride. The TVS Apache Owners team will also traverse through the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park (wildlife preserve inhabited by some exotic species of fauna like Himalayan black bears, red foxes and black-necked cranes, etc.) before moving to the beautiful little town of Paro and embarking on a journey to get a glimpse of the famed Tiger’s Nest or Taktsang Monastery, which is considered the cultural icon of Bhutan. The end part of the ride will see the riders scale the highest motorable pass in Bhutan, Chelel La, before concluding the ride at Siliguri on December 12, 2018.
