TVS Motor Company has crossed a global sales milestone of over 50 lakh units for their TVS Apache series. The company achieved the first 40 lakh unit sales milestone in October 2020, taking about 15 years to clock the same. And now, in just 28 months, TVS has managed to sell the last 10 lakh units of the motorcycle. This achievement is a true testament to the fact that the TVS Apache is one of the fastest growing sports brands all around the world, according to the manufacturer. The Apache brand was launched way back in 2005 and became popular among the masses. Back then, the premium brand delivered more value-for-money units in comparison to the Bajaj Pulsar, its arch rival.
