Based on the Draken Concept which was unveiled at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, the new TVS Apache 200 has been spied once again before it makes official debut. Set to make global debut on the 20th January, new Apache 200 will be launched in India first, thereafter in South East Asian countries like Indonesia.
TVS has already begun testing Apache 200 in Indonesia as multiple spy shots have emerged on Indonesian media over the last few days. The latest spy shots from Indonesia completely reveal TVS Apache 200’s headlight structure and the instrument console.
The headlight of TVS Apache 200 gets a single halogen lamp with two LED DRLs placed above the headlamp on each side of the cluster. The LED DRLs look very much like the devil’s horn, giving the Apache 200 a bad boy image.
Speaking about the instrument console of Apache 200, this is not the first time that it has been spied. It was spied on an earlier occasion as well. But unlike last time, when the engine was not turned ON, this time the engine is at idle.
From the spy shot, it is clear that the TVS Apache 200 idle’s at about 1200-1250 rpm, which is usually the case on most of the bikes in that segment. Apart from this, the spy shot also reveals the data which the digital console will deliver to the rider – time, gear engaged, speedometer, fuel, service reminder, odometer, and tachometer. Under the console, there are indicators for turn, ABS, Neutral, etc.
Speaking about the engine of new Apache 200, it is a single cylinder 4 stroke air-cum-liquid cooled machine which is expected to deliver power in the range of 25 hp and torque in the range of 22 Nm. Designed to rival the KTM Duke 200, sources close to the development of the bike have revealed to Rushlane that Apache 200 will not only be quicker than the KTM Duke 200, but will also be better in acceleration, handling, braking, and refinement. On top of this, it gets a new exhaust system which will sound similar to that of the Mahindra Mojo.
Other features on offer include LED DRL above, LED taillight, clip-on handle bars, Pirelli tyres, dual channel ABS, split seats, muscular tank, engine cover, stylish alloys, petal discs, and tank extensions. More details will be revealed at launch on 20th January.
