Much awaited TVS Apache 200 has been spied once again in Indonesia before its official launch on the 20th of January. Seen in a camouflaged paint, the bike shows off its body completely in a hi-res spy photo.
Based on the TVS Draken concept which was on display at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo, new Apache 200 is benchmarked against the KTM Duke 200, which is currently the most powerful and fastest naked bike on offer in the segment in India. Sources close to the development of TVS Apache 200 have confirmed to Rushlane that the Apache 200 will not only be more powerful, but will also be faster and better to handle than the KTM Duke 200.
Indonesian-spec and the Indian-spec Apache 200 are expected to come with a few differences. For example, the handle bar and tyres on the Apache sold in India and that in Indonesia will be different. India-spec Apache will be seen wearing TVS tyres, while the one on offer in Indonesia will be seen with Pirelli tyres.
To be officially named TVS Apache RTR 200 4V upon launch, a total of two variants will be on offer – one with dual channel ABS and the other without ABS. The non-ABS variant also gets front and rear disc brake as standard.
Engine output is pegged at 26 PS and 22 Nm via five speed gearbox. Features on offer include deveil’s horn shaped LED DRL in the front, split seats, clip-on handlebar, mono-shock rear suspension, LED taillight, aluminium footpegs and a full digital instrument panel.
Expect price to range from INR 85,000 to INR 95,000.
