TVS Apache 200 Spy Shots

The upcoming Apache is said to be quicker than the KTM Duke 200.

The production ready test mule of the TVS Apache RTR 200 has been clicked from close proximity in Chennai as the motorcycle is getting ready for its launch on January 20 (tentative date). The flagship Apache eschews bikini fairing in favor of a stylish naked body style.

While the prototype is disguised heavily, we can make out that the primary design elements have been derived from the Draken design concept which was unveiled at the Auto Expo 2014. The new TVS motorcycle comes with familiar handlebar grips, levers, switch gear, petal discs, foot pegs, gear shifter and rear brake pedal.

The new motorcycle derives several components from older Apaches like the handlebar grips, levers, switch gears, foot pegs, etc.

The new Apache RTR 200 is fitted with a flat handlebar which should make for a sporty yet comfortable ergonomics. Other noteworthy features include a fully digital instrument cluster, a silencer end canister with an auxiliary box (probably an extended cat-con) and new TVS Tyres (Indonesian prototypes were spotted testing with IRC and Pirelli rubbers).

TVS has benchmarked the Apache RTR 200 against the KTM Duke 200 and is said to be quicker than its primary rival. The air-cum-oil-cooled engine would displace around 200 cc and is mated to a 5-speed transmission.

    They
    have taken ages for it to launch it in the market and it is an air
    cooled unit, that means it would not be a super high jump from the 17
    BHP the RTR 180 makes.
