TVS Apache 200 Official
 

TVS Apache 200 is officially named TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.

To be launched simultaneously in India and Indonesia on the 20th of this month, these are the first images of new TVS Apache 200 without camouflage.

Inspired by the Draken concept, TVS Apache 200 gets a muscular, no-nonsense body. This has helped TVS in keeping the bike’s weight at minimum, and with no excessive parts, the price too will be competitive.

The naked sports bike from TVS is aimed at taking on the KTM Duke 200, which is currently the most powerful and fastest in the 200 cc segment.

New TVS Apache 200 is powered by a 197.75 cc single cylinder oil-cum-liquid cooled carbureted engine which will generate peak power of 20.23 hp @ 8,500 rpm and peak torque of 18.1 Nm @ 7,000 rpm via a five speed gearbox. Weighing 140 kgs, TVS Apache 200 will do a 0-60 in 3.9 seconds and will have a top speed of 130 kmph.

Talking about specs, bore is 66 mm, stroke is 57.8 mm, while bore to stroke ratio is at 1.14. Engine idling is set at 1400 + 200 rpm, while starting the bike is done via button (electric start), there is no manual kick start.

Other features seen on board the new TVS Apache 200 includes LED DRL in the front inspired by devil’s horn, LED taillight, split seats, clip-on handle bar, fuel tank and engine cowls, front and rear petal disc brake with dual channel ABS, stylish alloys wrapped in TVS tyres.

Speaking about branding, there are plenty of it. The largest one’s are the Apache and RTR monogram stickers on the fuel tank. Then there is a RTR 200 4V sticker next to pillion grab rails and a TVS Racing sticker just below the rider seat and on the alloys as well.

To be available in six colour options – Red, Silver, White, Matte Black, Black and Yellow – expect the price of new TVS Apache 200 to start in the range of INR 95,000, ex-showroom, Chennai.

Stay tuned to RushLane as we bring you the launch coverage of TVS Apache 200 from the launch floor in Chennai on the 20th January 2016. Until then, have a look at the images below and let us know what you think of the new Apache in the comments section below.

About the author

YOUR OPINION MATTERS

  • brvnbld

    Very late to the party.

  • Athul

    That’s bloody good one.

  • Vishnu Kumar

    Wow.. Stunning.

  • NAGU

    Launch place in chennai ??any idea ??

  • Nikhil

    Is there any difference between bhp and hp ?

    • Ted

      HP is power produced in engine. BHP is the power at wheel

      • Hari

        R u sure?

        • Ted

          Sorry, It was the opposite… πŸ™‚

        • Ted

          The power produced by an engine is expressed in HP. When the power developed is measured by means of a dynamometer or similar braking device, it is called BHP. This is the power actually delivered by the engine and is therefore the capacity of the engine. The power developed in the combustion chambers of the engine is greater than the delivered power because of friction and other mechanical losses. This power loss, called the friction horsepower, can be evaluated by β€œmotoring” the engine (driving it in a forward direction) with a suitable dynamometer when no fuel is being burned. The power developed in the cylinder can then be found by adding the friction horsepower to the brake horsepower. This quantity is the Indicated HP of the engine, so called from an instrument known as the engine indicator, which is used to measure the pressure on the piston and thus calculate the power developed in the cylinder.
          Hope this helps..:)

  • Atharv

    20hp and 18nm ? where’s 26hp and 22nm ??

    • Drunk

      That was just motorbeams bulls**t speculation!

      • Kp

        That’s problem they spread fake information, power figures are good for air cooled engine

        • Drunk

          Figures are good when we consider bikes like p220.I was expecting a proper 200ns rival bro.So a bit disappointed.

          • Kp

            200NS or AS engine is just cheaper variant of duke200 engine right?this one entirely new engine developes by tvs its air cooled engine doesn’t mean it won’t perform well…let’s have test drive see

          • Drunk

            Yes..will wait and see..

      • Atharv

        Are u Drunk bro? Carblogindia published that, not motorbeam

        • Drunk

          I came to know it from MB. spreading crap figures and breaking enthusiasts heart is not a good thing.Things should be done in a professional way.The day they published those Figures,many of the readers said it was wrong.And yes I’m drunk;-)

          • Hi guys, it was neither MB nor CBI. It was us who posted those figures. 26 ps and 22 Nm were the figures of one of the pre-production test bike, which had easily beaten the KTM Duke 200 in a duel. But probably the top management decided to launch a version with less power and more efficiency, to please the larger segment of buyers. We are still trying to figure out what exactly went wrong and why the more powerful version was not launched. Will update the same in a new story soon. Thanks.

          • Drunk

            Ok then.

          • pranav shet

            May be they were facing reliability issues with such high state of tune, may be excessive vibrations.

          • Atharv

            Maybe there are different versions with different engine tunings/hardware

          • Atharv

            Nope, u copied from CBI. U credited them.

          • Should not be boasting about something which has not been proved right πŸ˜›

            Anyways, the screenshot you have shared is of this story – https://www.rushlane.com/tvs-apache-200-price-specs-features-12179246.html

            They did reveal the specs like alloy size, no FI, disc size etc and we gave credit to them.

            But, I am talking about only power and torque, faster than KTM, etc etc – which was revealed here : https://www.rushlane.com/tvs-apache-rtr-200-to-rival-ktm-duke-200-12177860.html

            Hope this helps πŸ™‚

          • Atharv

            Sorry if i sounded aggresive ? i love to argue. Was heartbroken by this so wasn’t thinking ?

          • Atharv

            I dont want to sound offensive, but they said “according to rumor”, figures were 26hp and 22nm.

          • Drunk

            Whatever..everything lead to a big disappointment bro:-(

          • Atharv

            I was so hyped ? lets hope official announcement is different

          • Drunk

            Yes bro.

          • PI

            Mb were also flying Rc390 on 215+ top speed

          • Atharv

            lol?

  • Basic Sh*t

    RIP TVS ;p

  • Rahul Kate

    Nothing exciting in terms of design…power figures are disappointing…Bajaj and KTM will be more than happy…

  • Hari

    underpowered

  • Drunk

    Biggest disappointment of the year came in the form of this news.Seriously 20HP?Are they here to compete with gixxers&fz’s?

  • Rajkumar

    Today’s gen expect a naked motorcycle to actually carry masculine design with fat rubbers and a Torquey Engine. Tvs looks like a big commuter. Disappointed

  • Patgiri Sourav

    But duel ABS is offered at very lower price. I think this one is first offerd here.

  • Patgiri Sourav

    Wat today’s gen need is louder exhaust and more power comparative to other in their gang. But this is seriously dumb in looks and power. 180rtr ABS was even better. I own one

  • Siddharth S Nayak

    Biggest
    disappointment of the year, after 6 years they release a bike people
    wanted in 2012. TVS screwed up big time. Was planning to buy this, but
    seeing it now, ill keep my RTR180.

  • Kp

    Good looking bike…

  • Pratham

    And my wait for an upgrade continues.
    -How are they even competing with Duke, specs broke my heart. Just a re-bored version of 180 engine.

  • Vijay Varma

    My dreams shattered. The old one is much better than this one. and the specs, i l wait till it gets official. even then no way of taking this new bike.
    Guys help me if any one has suggestions in 150 – 200 category. Looks matter the most to me. decent power would do,
    thx

    • Drunk

      Looks-Gixxer SF,R15
      Performance-Duke,Pulsar AS200

    • Pratham

      Trust me, you will feel the need of power more than the looks after a few days.

      • Vijay Varma

        you are right but this is going to be my first one.

        • Pratham

          Gixxer SF.

  • Mehul Rathore

    Awesome design. This thing gonna destroy the market

    • PI

      As far as Im seeing the response on web ,,, its getting destroyed

  • duke owner

    Can it destroy duke 200? Guys reply

    • Drunk

      Maybe in wet dreams.

      • duke owner

        Bro i was waiting for a long to buy a bike. And i was going to buy duke 200 in 2016 mid but there is news that…ktm will replaced its now model with new one. What should i do

        • Drunk

          Yes bro the new model is coming next year.But current duke is still worth the price..

          • duke owner

            I think i should go for duke 200 ?

          • Atharv

            Duke not at all comfortable

          • duke owner

            If you were in my place what would you do?

          • Drunk

            Would wait for upcoming BMW G310.

        • Hari

          if budget allows, wait for BMW to declare G310R πŸ™‚

        • Mohit Narang

          buy mojo.

    • With these figures, definitely no.

  • pranav shet

    Quite disappointed with this product. Had high expectation from this bike given the fact that TVS had taken lot of time to develope this product. Pulsar 200 as will eat this bike for breakfast. Thats for sure.

    • Kp

      But 200AS weighs 153kgs just 13kgs more :p

  • pranav shet

    My expectations were high as TVS’s partnership with BMW was much hyped. Started getting impression may be BMW’s engine tech will filter down to TVS’s sporty apaches like how bajaj went about with their pulsar.

  • Nevin Joseph Morrison

    It
    is a good upgrade for the current rtr owners but nothing much for the
    owners of other brands. All in all, not the upgrade many of us have
    been expecting from the tvs stable.

  • Anto

    This should be the new TVS Victor

    • Vijay Varma

      lol!

  • rohit

    i follow your news regularly, but i think we shud not discuss about top speed at this moment. coz, i have seen rtr160 going upto 143kmph speed and here u are mentioning about top end of 130kmph

    • Piyush Sharma

      Did u replace you filters k&n filters?

    • Pratham

      Did you measure the Speedo Error?

    • Gaurav

      You can check any site …. Always the top speed is written less than it worth

  • Puneeth

    And are these specifications finally true?? Can we believe this or is this a rumor as well?

  • Gohan

    Any news on RTR 160/180 upgrades along this?
