The team broked the record of 21233 feet, which was set in the Atakama range of Mt. Andes.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V motorcycles are equipped with off-road tires to resist rough terrain. In addition to the Limca Book of records, the TVS Motor has taken an initiative to showcase to the world regarding the real power of the vehicle.

For the purpose of the ride, the mag wheels are changed to spoke wheels of 18 and 16-inch respectively at the front and rear. The suspension was also refreshed to manage the harsh terrain. It took one year for the Limca Book of records to approve the winner since the submission was made in December 2016.
