Key Specs of Apache RTR 200 4V
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Highlights
The production of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V along with the rest of the two-wheelers from TVS Motor Company has resumed from May 6, 2020 at all its three factories in India. This comes after the announcement of lockdown relaxation. That said, information about the delivery timelines remain to be seen.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Price:
The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V price is Rs 1,25,000. This makes the BS6 Apache RTR 200 Rs 10,450 dearer than its BS4 counterpart, as the older carb version of the bike was priced at Rs 1,14,550.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Features:
TVS gave the Apache RTR 200 a whole host of updates while transitioning to meet the BS6 emission norms. The BS6 bike includes fuel injection, LED headlight, Glide Through Traffic technology, and smartphone connectivity. The latter was introduced in the final lot of the BS4 bikes as part of one of the variants but it is a standard feature on the BS6 bike.
The SmartXonnect feature on the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V enables you to connect your smartphone to the motorcycle’s digital console via Bluetooth. By pairing the smartphone, you can get call and SMS alerts, turn-by-turn navigation, and other vehicle diagnostics messages. Post the ride, you can also check the analytics of your past ride, lean angles, and G-forces experienced.
TVS Apache 200 Engine:
In the BS6 era, the 197.75cc single-cylinder air-cooled (with an oil-cooler) motor on the Apache 200 makes 20.5PS and 16.8Nm. Although power remains the same, torque has gone down by 1.3Nm. The Apache RTR 200 finally gets fuel-injection as standard. The five-speed gearbox sees no revision.
Thanks to the inclusion of fuel-injection and an ECU, TVS has introduced a feature called ‘Glide Through Traffic’ on the Apache 200. What it basically does is when you are setting off, the ECU bumps up the revs slightly to avoid the engine bogging down. This is similar to the feature you get on Suzuki’s big-capacity motorcycles.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Suspension & Brakes:
There are no changes to report on the mechanicals front of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. The racy taut chassis of the Apache RTR 200 is suspended by a telescopic fork and a KYB-tuned monoshock. Brakes on offer are a 270mm front and a 240mm rear petal disc with dual-channel ABS as standard. With the BS6 updates, TVS is also offering the option to fit a radial tyre at the rear.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Rivals:
The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V has been one of the best affordable performance motorcycles one can buy in India and the same holds true in the BS6 era. The price bump for the BS6 bike is significant but that shouldn’t deter buyers as it gets quite a few new features. In the 200cc segment, the Apache RTR 200 4V competes against the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 and the KTM 200 Duke. In its price bracket, the Apache 200 4V rivals the KTM 125 Duke, Suzuki Gixxer SF, Bajaj Avenger Cruise 220, Suzuki Intruder and the affordable colour variants of the Royal Enfield Bullet 350.

Apache RTR 200 4V Expert Review
The Apache RTR 200 4V BS4 was last updated in 2018. Updates included a slipper clutch, a new flyscreen and race inspired graphics. New colour options include black/red, grey/yellow, white/red, red/black and matte black/red. TVS claims the new slipper clutch reduces clutch lever effort by 22 percent, allows quicker gearshifts and prevents wheel hop during aggressive downshifting.
It carries forward the same air and oil-cooled single cylinder motor in the same state of tune as its predecessor. The motor comes in two versions: Carburetted and fuel injected. The carburetted variant makes 20.5PS while the fuel-injected one makes a slightly higher 21PS. Both offer same torque outputs at 18.1Nm and come mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
The split cradle frame uses the engine as a stressed member and has telescopic forks upfront and a monoshock damper at the rear. Braking is via 270mm front and 240mm rear petal discs. ABS is available as an option. The bike comes fitted with 90/90 R-17 and 130/70 R-17 TVS Remora tyres but also offer Pirelli tyres as an optional fitment.
The Apache RTR 200 4V is available in three variants: Carburetted, Fi and Carburetted with ABS. The bike competes with the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, Yamaha FZ 25 and the upcoming Hero Xtreme 200R.
Design and Features
The Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 carries forward the design language of the Apache series but now looks sharper, meaner and more focused. The bike gets a lot of unique details like the offset fuel-filler cap, a black stripe that runs across the center of the tank and the double barrel exhaust. Fit and finish are top notch while switchgear feels premium. New updates for 2018 include a flyscreen atop the headlamp and new dual-tone colour schemes.
Features include clip-ons and a fully-digital instrument cluster that displays a host of information like lap times, acceleration times, fastest speed recorded, service indicator and gear indicator.
Engine and Performance
The all-new 197cc air and oil-cooled single cylinder motor comes in two variants: carburetted and fuel injected. The carburetted mill makes 20.5PS at 8500rpm while the fuel injected one makes a slightly higher 21PS at 8500rpm. Both make the same 18.1Nm of torque at 7000rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed gearbox with a slipper clutch. TVS claims the slipper clutch reduces clutch lever effort by 22 percent leading to quicker gearshifts and also eliminating wheel hop while aggressive downshifting.
A shorter first gear means the bikes get off the line quicker. The carburetted version has better bottom end torque delivery that allows it to be quicker off the line than the Fi variant. It accelerates from 0-60kmph in 4.02 seconds whereas the Fi did the same run in 4.67 seconds. The Fi version has a wider torque spread across the rev band and as a result feels a lot more linear to ride.
The carburetted version is quicker to 100kmph as well, covering 0-100kmph in 12.94 seconds and registering a true top speed of 112.58kmph. The Fi variant does the 0-100kmph dash in 13.47 seconds but registers a higher top speed of 120kmph.
The carb version feels more responsive while commuting in the city though the Fi version is a lot more refined and fuel efficient.
In our fuel efficiency tests, the carb version returned 40.2kmpl in the city and 38.4kmpl on the highway. The Fi variant meanwhile delivered 44.1kmpl in the city and 44.6kmpl on the highway.
Braking and Handling
The RTR 's split cradle frame uses the engine as a stressed member for better rigidity and lightness. TVS claims the new frame is 25 percent more stable. It uses KYB suspension components in the form of telescopic front forks and a rear monoshock. While ride quality over uneven surfaces is plush, the rear suspension tends to get caught out by bumps quite easily and takes time to settle down leading to a pogo effect for the pillion rider.
The bike gets a sharp rake so the quick steering takes some getting used to. The front end has a tendency to dive into corners but mid-corner stability is quite good. That allows you to ride the bike in a spirited manner. While the Remora tyres get the job done, the expensive Pirelli tyres are the ones to go for as they offer that extra grip in corners and while braking.
Safety and Features
Safety comes in the form of an optional dual-channel ABS unit that reduces braking distance while improving stability under braking. The unit also gets rear lift protection (RLP) system that keeps the bike from performing unintentional stoppies under hard braking.
