You read it first on BharathAutos. TVS Motor Company is all set to launch its fully-faired Apache RTR 220 in the Indian market by the first half of 2014. And don’t be surprised if South India based two-wheeler manufacturer makes the TVS Apache RTR 220 debut at the 2014 Auto Expo next-month. The launch of the Apache RTR 220 has been already delayed, and now the company is not wasting anytime introducing the bike further.

The Apache RTR 220 will be the flagship motorcycle for the company and the third-generation of TVS Apache series in India which includes TVS Apache 150 and TVS Apache RTR series. The Apache RTR 220 will be the first bike from TVS to have full body fairing and will be positioned above the Apache 180 ABS with a slightly bigger price tag. As per the trusted source, the company has already finished testing and last minute details are being looked into before gearing up for the big day.

No details of the engine are revealed yet. TVS Apache RTR 220 is expected to be powered by an 220cc 4-stroke, single cylinder oil-cooled engine with fuel injection system. This engine is speculated to produce 25 BHP max power output and maximum speed of 150 Kmph. The thrill of speed, sensation of power and attractive styling will definitely destroy the power bike segment in India. The RTR 220 will land into direct competition with the upcoming 2014 Karizma ZMR and Pulsar 200SS.

TVS Apache RTR 220 is expected to feature clip-on handlebars, mono-suspension, sporty ergonomics, step-up seat, instrument cluster with digital plus analogue combination, tubeless tyres, LED daytime running lights and tail light. The top-of-the-range RTR 220 with ABS option will also get Rear Wheel Lift-off Protection (RLP) system. Like the current Apache series, expect the RTR 220 exhaust to be sound engineered magnificently. Retaining the Apache value for money scheme, the RTR 220 is expected to hit showrooms by March/April this-year at a price of around Rs. 1.3 lakhs (on-road).

Top 10 things you need to know about the 2012 TVS Apache RTR 160/180

 

  • rahul

    hello Mohammed Asra,
    i have been hearing this for the past 4 years.. Is your information genuine..? Or a rumour.?

  • rahul

    auto expo is nearby.. will be counting on you..

  • bharathautos

    Yes Rahul, before posting this article I enquired the same with 2 Bangalore and a Mangalore dealers. And one of the dealer in Bangalore has even received the picture of the bike to get a feedback, but they refused commenting more about the bike. Although it is unclear, if its a 200 or 220cc but the sources close to us believe its a 220cc bike. Recently even TVS officials confirmed in an interview that bigger Apache RTR in the pipeline without any collaboration with BMW Motorrad. Thus, don’t be surprised if TVS showcase Apache RTR 220 as a concept or production bike at the Auto Expo this-week.
