'Sausage Creature', based on 2008 TVS Apache RTR 160 is designed by Greasemonkeys, Pune. Designed on the Café Racer theme, the wheelbase has been shortened, the fuel tank is borrowed from the RE Continental GT, the seat and the cowl are built from a single hand-carved block of wood and new clip-on handlebars with end-mounted LEDs have been installed.
The powertrain is also heavily reworked, it gets a light-weight forged aluminium piston, high-lift cam, 29mm Mikuni carburettor and a free flow exhaust from Race Concepts, Bangalore. To handle the bump in the power, a new multi-map CDI has been installed which widens the power band to 14000 RPM.Other performance improvements include a 41mm front suspension setup, 270mm petal disc with Nissin Twin-pot calipers at the front and a 200mm petal-disc setup at the rear.
