TVS Apache RTR 200 4V comes with an all-new single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that serves 20.2bhp of power and 18.1Nm of torque.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with BS-IV compliant engine and AHO has been launched in India priced between Rs 92, 215 and Rs 97,215 (ex-showroom, Delhi). Rolled out in two variants-Apache RTR with Pirelli tyres and without Pirelli tyres, the bike now comes with BS-IV emission compliant (Bharat Stage 4) engine and AHO (Automatic Headlamp On) feature. The headlamp switch mounted on the handlebar has been given a miss whereas the AHO feature, added for the safety of rider switches on as the engine is ignited. The fuel-injected, top-spec ABS variant is yet to join the carburetted trim, TVS has not made any official announcement around the time-span as to when it will be available for retail.
Launched early last year with comprehensive updates, the new dose of updates on the bike are restricted to subtle engine changes. This is primarily to make the engine comply with the new norms. Just so you know the BS-IV compliant fuel will be available at pumps throughout India effective April 1, 2017.
Based on the RTR platform, the bike takes design inspiration from the RTR 160 and RTR 180 models with new headlamp cluster, split-seats, clip-on-handlebars, fuel tank extension and exhaust with twin mufflers giving an aggressive look. Power on the Apache RTR 200 4V comes from the 197.75cc, SOHC, four cylinder engine putting out power in two tunes for the carburetted and fuel-injected variants.
