Apart from the Draken Concept, TVS also showcased a dirt bike called TVS Apache RTR 300FX. As the name itself suggests, the Apache RTR 300FX comes powered by a 300cc (290.1cc to be exact) single-cylinder, 4-valve, four-stroke, liquid cooled, DOHC engine. The power output of the Apache 300FX is rated at 45PS at a high 12,000 rpm, and peak torque output rated at 34Nm at 9500 rpm.
Hosur-based bike maker reveals the Apache RTR 300FX should is capable of developing close to 160 bhp per litre. Furthermore, the company claims a flat torque curve throughout the Engine Revs, while the liquid cooled engine ensures optimum engine temperature in all conditions. Progressive and positive engagement and disengagement of the hydraulically controlled clutch is supposed to ensure smooth power delivery.
The Apache RTR 300FX features upside down forks up front, a WP monoshock unit at the rear and disc brakes at both ends. The outer tube of the front shocks is machined from aircraft grade aluminium for Light weight and good performance. The hydraulically damped rear suspension with nitrogen gas assist gives 300 mm rear wheel travel. The swing-arm as well as the wheel rims are made of Aluminium to reduce weight.
Although there are rumors on the web that TVS has scheduled to launch production-spec Apache RTR 300FX by end this-year. We don’t think this bike might make it to production anytime soon because this segment has just seen laidback due to the quarter liter sports segment garnering more concentration of bike making organization than anything else. But TVS has received positive response for the Apache RTR 300FX at the 2014 Auto Expo event.
