Scoop – TVS Apache RTR 200 FI is in the works

 
TVS Apache RTR 200 FI in the making

The fuel injected variant would be launched at a later stage.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is all set to be launched in India tomorrow but the company’s R&D team is not done with it yet. Rushlane has learnt that the two wheeler giant is working on a fuel injected variant which would be launched at a later stage as a range-topping model.

TVS adopted a similar strategy with the Apache RTR 160 which existed in both carbureted and FI avatars. Going by TVS’s history with FI variant, we expect the RTR 200 FI to offer slightly higher power and torque outputs. A more responsive throttle and better cold start characteristics would come as added benefits.

The Apache RTR 200 will be launched tomorrow in its carbureted avatar.

The motorcycle launching tomorrow will however be powered by a carburated 197.75 cc single-cylinder air-cum-oil-cooled engine which is tuned to deliver 20.23 hp at 8,500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of torque. Transmission is a 5-speed unit. The 140 kg kerb weight makes for a good power-to-weight ratio of 144.5 hp/tonne. 0-60 kmph comes in 3.9 seconds.

The sporty naked motorcycle comes equipped with LED pilot lamps, fully digital instrument console, sharp tank extensions, body colored belly pan, split seats, petal discs at both ends and LED taillights. The top-end variant is expected to come with dual channel ABS.
