For the first time ever, TVS has flagged off its international ride to Bhutan especially for the owners of Apache bike. This consist of the members of the Apache Owners Group (A.O.G.), riding for the first time outside India. The team of 17 men and women were flagged off from Siliguri in West Bengal. TVS Apache RTR 160, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, TVS Apache RTR 180, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V and the TVS Apache RR 310 are the Apache bikes taking part in this international trip. The 10-day ride will see them travel through Sikkim before entering Bhutan to cover a distance of over 2,000km.
Riders will enter Bhutan from Phuentsholing and head towards Thimpu. Further, they will head towards the land which is home to the world’s largest Buddha statue, Kuensel Phodrang. Before entering the Jigme Singye Wangchuck National Park, they will ride through the beautiful Punakha Valley. The ride will also take them to Paro where they will pay a visit to the Taktsang Monastery, also known as the Tiger’s Nest. The highlight of the ride will be when the riders will ride on Chelel La, the highest motorable pass in Bhutan. On the tenth day, the ride will conclude in Siliguri from were it actually started.
With a community of passionate and like-minded TVS Apache riders, TVS Apache Owners Group shares a common platform to explore and spread their enthusiasm for motorcycling among the group members. Currently, with an active rider base in more than 35 cities, the AOG is growing steadily. The rides conducted by AOG are an ideal opportunity for those riders who want to ride frequently while exploring fantastic places and remote locations on their TVS Apaches.
