The motorcycle will start off TVS’ proceedings in the new year.

Information about the TVS Apache RTR 200 are trickling down online in a phased manner. The motorcycle which is reported to make its global premiere on January 20 has been spied up close in Indonesia with two different tyres, suggesting that two options could be on offer.

The slightly lower-spec variant is likely to come shod with IRC tyres while the range-topping variant would adopt upmarket Pirelli rubbers. There is also a chance that the company is testing the bike’s behavior when equipped with possible after market upgrade options. The motorcycle is benchmarked against the KTM Duke 200 and is expected to outperform its rival in almost all performance parameters.

The top-end variant will get dual-channel ABS.

Powertrain details are still sketchy but expect the air-cum-oil-cooled FI engine to displace around 200 cc. Power output is expected in the range of 26-28 PS. The motor will come mated to a 5-speed transmission.

The range-topping TVS Apache RTR 200 variant would be offered with dual-channel ABS while a petal disc at each wheel will come as standard equipment. Other noteworthy features include a digital dashboard, muscular fuel tank with extensions, LED taillights and an interesting design for the exhaust canister.

The motorcycle is estimated to be priced at around INR 1.25 lakhs (ex-showroom). TVS is preparing for a busy 2016 as it has products like the BMW G 310 R and its Indian version, and new Victor in the pipeline.
