There is an all-digital instrument cluster with tachometer and a large red rev-limiter light. The bike also features a signature TVS badge, sporty black finish on the engine, larger petal disc brakes at the front & rear, revised exhaust with twin mufflers and mud guards.
The Apache 200 gets minimal fairing and upside down fork with golden metallic colour. Other design highlights include all digital instrument console, upward riding stance, mobile-charging point, twin muffler on the exhaust, offset monoshock suspension set-up and underside exhaust. The TVS Apache RTR 200cc comes fitted with 10-spoke, 17-inches alloy wheels and 90/90 R17 front and 130/70 R17 rear tyres.
This naked street motorcycle sits on the ‘RTR’ platform, and measures 2,050mm in length, 790mm in width and 1,105mm in height. The bike stands high with a ground clearance of 180mm, and offers a saddle height of 800mm. It has a fuel tank capacity of 12-litres. Both the variants, carburetor and EFI, carry a kerb weight of 148kg and 148.5kg respectively. Braking power for the bike comes from 270mm petal-type front and 240mm rear disc brakes. While, the top-end variant with dual channel ABS (anti-lock braking system) will join the model lineup at a later stage. The suspension duties are performed of by telescopic forks upfront and adjustable monoshock rear setup.
The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V derives its power from a new 197.8cc single-cylinder engine with 4-valve configuration, single overhead camshaft (SOHC) arrangement and oil-cooled system. This power unit with a carburetor develops a maximum power of 20.2bhp at 8,500rpm, while the EFI variant offers 20.7bhp at 8,500rpm. Though, the torque output with both the systems is same – i.e. 18.1Nm at 7,000rpm. With such power output figures and a better power-to-weight ratio, the TVS Apache RTR 200 becomes one of the most powerful bikes in its segment.
Besides this, TVS’s new gasoline unit is claimed to be high on fuel efficiency, and have well-controlled NVH levels. Transmission on offer is a 5-speed manual gearbox, which is the same unit that is found in the RTR 180 and RTR 160. The carburetor model can achieve 0-60kmph sprints in 3.95 seconds that makes it one of the fastest bikes in its league. It has an electronic speed limit of 127kmph. On the other hand, the Apache RTR 200 EFI is capable to attain 0-60kmph in 3.9 seconds, while maintaining a top speed of 129kmph.
