Breaking: TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Becomes More Affordable
The single-channel ABS variant gets new rider-aids
- The Apache RTR 200 4V is available in two models: single-channel and dual-channel ABS.
- Both bikes get the same rider-aids.
- No change has been made to the engine or the overall design.
A few months ago, TVS had launched the 2021 Apache RTR 200 4V with a handful of segment-first features. The list included ride modes, adjustable suspension, adjustable front brake lever, and clutch lever. Now, the Apache RTR 200 has gotten a little more affordable, thanks to TVS launching the single-channel-ABS variant but with all the aforementioned rider-aids. It’s priced at Rs 1,28,020 (ex-showroom Delhi), which is Rs 5,000 less than the dual-channel variant and Rs 1,000 more than the previous-gen single-channel bike.
With this pricing, the Apache RTR 200 4V undercuts the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 by Rs 5,202 and the Honda Hornet 2.0 by Rs 175. Despite the reduced price, the new RTR 200 variant offers more features and better hardware compared to its competitors.
