TVS Motor Company has launched their most powerful Apache in the series – the all-new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V in three variants on the Indian market – the carburetted version, the fuel injected version (EFi) and the ABS & Pirelli tyres equipped model.
The Apache RTR 200 4V has an interesting design with street-fighter styling. The carbureted variant will get TVS Remora tyres, while the fuel-injected variant will get Pirellli tyres, however, both variants will not get ABS (Anti-lock Braking System). The top-spec model will get fuel-injected engine, Pirellli tyres and a dual-channel ABS system sourced with RLP (Rear Lift-off Protection).
The notable features include a digital instrument cluster, an LED tail lamp, LED day-time running lights, aggressive tank cowl, race derived engine, race origin chassis, race tuned suspension, foam-in-place racing seat and a double barrel exhaust. A total of 7 colours are on offer with 5 matte shades & 2 glossy shades – Matte Black, Matte Grey, Matte White, Matte Red, Matte Yellow, Gloss White and Gloss Black.
The powerplant is a 197.75cc, single-cylinder, 4-valve, 4-stroke oil-cooled petrol engine mated to 5-speed gearbox, available in two sets of tune – Carburettor and Electronic Fuel Injection. The carburetted version develops 20.23 BHP @ 8,500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of torque @ 7,000 rpm, while the fuel-injected version 20.73 BHP @ 8500 rpm and 18.1 NM of torque @ 7,000 rpm.
The carburetted version has a claimed 0-60 kph time of 3.95 seconds and a top speed of 128 kmph, the fuel-injected version manages the 0-60 kph sprint in 3.9 seconds and has a top speed of 129 kmph. 0-100 kmph takes 12 seconds on both models. The flagship Apache tips the scale at 148kg for the carbureted version and 148.5kg for the fuel injected one. With a fuel tank capacity of 12-liters, it can go for close to 400kms before stopping at a petrol pump.
