BS6 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V And BS6 Apache RTR 200 4V Launched In India
TVS’ first BS6-compliant models are here!
- The BS6-compliant Apache RTR 160 4V gets a price hike of Rs 7,644.
- The Apache RTR 200 4V BS6 is now more expensive by Rs 9,450.
- The smaller Apache produces less power and torque than its BS4 version.
- The BS6 Apache RTR 200 4V makes the same power but less torque than before.
TVS has launched its first BS6-compliant two-wheelers in the country - the Apache RTR 200 4V and the Apache RTR 160 4V. Both bikes now feature fuel injection as standard. Sadly, BS6 compliance has resulted in a slight loss in engine performance. But more on that later.
The BS6 Apache RTR 160 4V is now priced at Rs 99,950 for the rear drum brake variant and Rs 1,03,000 for the rear disc brake version. This makes them dearer by Rs 7,644 and Rs 2,444 respectively.
The BS6 Apache RTR 200 4V, on the other hand, gets a price hike of Rs 9,450, resulting in a price tag of Rs 1,24,000. The significant price difference is because of the fact that the BS4 iteration was available only with a carburettor whereas the BS6-compliant version gets a fuel-injected version of the same motor. What’s more, the two bikes feature all-LED headlamp and a couple of other interesting features as well.
As far as the specifications are concerned, the Apache RTR 160 4V BS6 makes 16.02PS and 14.12Nm, which is 0.77PS and 0.68Nm less than the BS4-compliant version. Interestingly, the Apache RTR 200 4V BS6’s power output remains unchanged at 20.5PS, but the peak torque has gone down from 18.1Nm to 16.8Nm. TVS has started accepting bookings for the BS6 versions of both bikes and deliveries are set to commence starting December.
