The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Spearheads its class with never before seen innovation. The track focused machine boasts of Dual-Channel ABS with RLP (Rear wheel Lift-off Protection) control, an advanced slipper clutch system, and pushes technological boundaries even further with the race telemetry enabled SmartXonnect – a system that provides essential race statistics and riding data.
The 2020 TVS Apache’s most prominent difference is the distinctive-looking headlamp. It is sharper than the previous unit in terms of design and now features full-LED lighting along with LED DRLs. However, the tail lamp and turn indicators continue to be conventionally lit.
There isn’t any change to the Apache’s bodywork. It continues to gets a muscular and sculpted fuel tank, split seat setup and dual-barrel exhaust. Nevertheless, it does get a new set of graphics that feature on the headlamp unit and on the fuel tank. TVS is offering the 2020 Apache RTR 200 4V in two paint schemes- Gloss Black with red highlights and Pearl White which also sports red highlights.
The Apache RTR 200 4V comes powered by the same 197.75cc, single-cylinder, 4-valve, oil-cooled mill that churns out 20.2bhp at 8500rpm and 16.8Nm at 7500rpm. However, this unit gets TVS’s Race Tuned-Fuel Injection ‘RT-Fi’ technology. The motorcycle also features first-in-class GTT (Glide Through Traffic) technology for a smooth low speed ride. The 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V also features a LCD instrument cluster that has Bluetooth connectivity as standard. It also features a radial tyre at the rear which is also fitted as standard.
As for competition, the 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V’s biggest rival is the Bajaj Pulsar 200NS in the country.
The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V price is Rs 1,28,550. This makes the BS6 Apache RTR 200 Rs 14,000 dearer than its BS4 counterpart, as the older carb version of the bike was priced at Rs 1,14,550. The asking price is extremely steep considering that the new bike only gets LED headlight, fuel-injection and a couple of other small nifty features.
In the BS6 era, the 197.75cc single-cylinder air-cooled (with an oil-cooler) motor on the Apache 200 makes 20.5PS and 16.8Nm. Although power remains the same, torque has gone down by 1.3Nm. The Apache RTR 200 finally gets fuel-injection as standard. The five-speed gearbox sees no revision.
Thanks to the inclusion of fuel-injection and an ECU, TVS has introduced a feature called ‘Glide Through Traffic’ on the Apache 200. What it basically does is when you are setting off, the ECU bumps up the revs slightly to avoid the engine bogging down. This is similar to the feature you get on Suzuki’s big-capacity motorcycles.
There are no changes to report on the mechanicals front of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. The racy taut chassis of the Apache RTR 200 is suspended by a telescopic fork and a KYB-tuned monoshock. Brakes on offer are a 270mm front and a 240mm rear petal disc with dual-channel ABS as standard. With the BS6 updates, TVS is also offering the option to fit a radial tyre at the rear.
TVS gave the Apache RTR 200 a whole host of updates while transitioning to meet the BS6 emission norms. The BS6 bike includes fuel injection, LED headlight, Glide Through Traffic technology, and smartphone connectivity. The latter was introduced in the final lot of the BS4 bikes as part of one of the variants but it is a standard feature on the BS6 bike.
The SmartXonnect feature on the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V enables you to connect your smartphone to the motorcycle’s digital console via Bluetooth. By pairing the smartphone, you can get call and SMS alerts, turn-by-turn navigation, and other vehicle diagnostics messages. Post the ride, you can also check the analytics of your past ride, lean angles, and G-forces experienced.
