2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V BSVI spotted in India - launch expected soon
A BSVI compliant TVS Apache RTR 200 4V has been spotted on test in India. The street naked motorcycle gets a new headlamp assembly that has an LED DRL in the lower half. Other than the headlamp, there seem no other revisions on the motorcycles cosmetic front. However, the mechanicals could have gone under minor tweaks to make the motorcycle run cleaner - adhering to the stricter emission norms.
Similar changes can be expected on the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V following the soon expected launch of its 200cc sibling.
The RTR 200 4V currently gets a 200cc oil-cooled engine mated to a five-speed gearbox aided with slipper clutch. The Fuel injected variant puts out 21PS at 8,500rpm and 18.1Nm of torque at 7,300rpm, while the carburettor makes 20.5PS at 8500rpm and 18.1Nm of torque at 7,000rpm.
The motorcycle gets dis brake units on the front and the rear end with ABS (anti-lock braking system) along with rear lift protection. The front telescopic suspensions are by KYB and the rear gets a mono-shock unit.
