TVS is in the process of introducing the Apache RTR 200 throughout India. Meanwhile, the Indonesians are already ahead of us when it comes to tasteful modification of TVS’ flagship.
A Rushlane reader from the archipelago has sent us these pictures of this modified Apache RTR 200. Unlike the supersports and adventure tourer Apache mods from Indonesia, this one doesn’t feature extensively altered bodywork. In fact, the bodywork has been left intact.
The exclusivity comes from a classy matte black paint job, partitioned headlamp cluster with two different tints, shiny golden finish for the front fork and disc, and contrast red accents for the brake calipers, footpegs, and pseudo air vents.
The motorcycle also gets custom knuckle guard mounts, footpegs, and silencer. Rest of the elements are in stock condition. The Apache RTR 200 is available only in FI avatar in Indonesia. The 197.75 cc single-cylinder oil-cooled engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission and dishes out 21 PS at 8,500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of torque at 7,000 rpm.
India-spec version is also available in an entry-level carbureted avatar with 20.5 PS on offer. Torque output is same as the FI variant. The Apache RTR comes with standard front and rear disc brakes, optional dual-channel ABS, fully digital instrument console and optional Pirelli tyres (Angel GT front and Sport Demon rear).
