New TVS Apache 200 will be simultaneously launched in India and Indonesia on 20th January 2016.

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.

    Bike looks good but since they were pitching it against Duke 200, no USD and just 5-gears not acceptable.

  • Nevin Joseph Morrison

    see a box section swing arm, a vented under cowl – probably the
    radiator for the supposed oil cooler, oh and btw is that a fuel tap on
    the side of the tank? Anyway a good upgrade to the old rtr but is it
    enough for 2016?

  • Chinnu Anand

    TVS don’t bring this to market…

    • Sunny Chaudhary

      can like or dislike its on u but think if this has an aggresive price
      like pulsar ns200 then think there will be only two bikes value fr money
      in this segment…now think which one is better pulsar or
      rtr???….dont forget rtr biting ktm in this segment..i understand
      something can be missing what u r accepting in rtr200 but it’s damn

  • Ajas Mohammed

    has an oil cooler prob..nd yes it wont be perfect like liquid
    cooling…also price will be reduced to a good margin by maintaining
    conventional air cooling system….if its price tag placed crctly thn it
    will become a huge hit in india…indians
    need fuel efficiency attractive looks nd performance also in affordable
    price nd majority of them dont bother abt its cooling system….in
    reviews rtr 200 may in sales it will succeed..jst think abt y
    pulsars become a huge hit even though it failed miserably in comparison
