TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Highlights

TVS has made the Apache RTR 200 4V more affordable by launching the single-channel ABS variant. TVS has made the Apache RTR 200 4V more affordable by launching the single-channel-ABS variant. It’s priced at Rs 1,28,020 (ex-showroom Delhi). That’s Rs 5,000 less than the dual-channel version. Moreover, both bikes offer the same set of rider aids and adjustable suspension. TVS has made no change to the engine or the appearance of the Apache RTR 200 4V.

 

 

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Price:

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is available in two variants: Single-channel ABS and Dual-channel ABS. The first one is priced at Rs 1,28,020, whereas the latter retails at Rs 1,33,070.

 

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Features:

TVS gave the Apache RTR 200 a whole host of updates in the 2021 model. Apart from fuel injection, LED headlight, Glide Through Traffic technology and smartphone connectivity, the bike also gets three riding modes: Urban, Rain and Sport. The modes can be cycled on the fly using a dedicated button on the right switchgear. The acceleration, top speed and the intrusion of the ABS unit vary depending on the modes. To complement the different modes, the gear shift prompt acts accordingly. In Sport mode, the upshift and downshifts are prompted at 8500rpm and over 6000rpm respectively. On the other hand, the upshift and downshift is prompted at 5500-6500rpm and over 3200rpm respectively. For better versatility, the bike also gets a three-step adjustable brake and clutch levers.

 

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:

The new 2021 Apache 200 makes 20.82PS at 9000rpm and 17.25Nm at 7250rpm in Sport mode. This is 0.32PS and 0.45Nm more than its BS6-compliant predecessor. In Urban and Rain modes, the output is restricted to 17.32PS at 7800rpm and 16.51Nm at 5750rpm. The engine works alongside the same 5-speed transmission as before. There’s no ride-by-wire throttle yet.

 

Thanks to the inclusion of fuel-injection and an ECU, TVS has introduced a feature in the BS6-compliant version 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:

The 2021 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with riding modes features a first-in-segment Showa telescopic front fork with high and low spring preload adjustment settings. The racy taut chassis of the Apache RTR 200 is suspended at the rear Showa monoshock. Brakes on offer are a 270mm front and a 240mm rear petal disc with either a dual-channel or a single-channel ABS. 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. Now, with the addition of the 2021 model, the bike is a lot more desirable than before. In the 200cc segment, the Apache RTR 200 4V competes against the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200, Honda Hornet 2.0 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.

TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Pros and Cons

Things We Like in Apache RTR 200 4V

  • Segment-first adjustable front suspension offers an added layer of sophistication and works flawlessly.
  • The engine is a lot more usable now with power throughout the rev range.
  • Brakes have been improved significantly -- one of our biggest grouses with the older RTR 200s.

Things We Don't Like in Apache RTR 200 4V

  • The footpeg position is still set higher up, which can make for an uncomfortable riding posture over long distances.
  • The lack of a sixth gear is evident out on the highway.

Stand Out Features

  • TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Pros and Cons

    Having ride modes on a small 200cc bike may sound absurd, but they actually make a difference.

  • TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Pros and Cons

    Adjustable brake and clutch levers better the overall riding experience by bringing in more flexibility for riders of all sizes.

Apache 200 Expert Review

We had the liberty of spending some quality time with the 2021 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V BS6. At this point, you’re probably wondering why it would be a big deal! After all, it’s the same BS6 model with an adjustable front suspension, ride modes, adjustable brake and clutch levers, and a swanky new colour scheme. Most of which don’t make sense for an everyday commuter. Besides, it only makes a bit more power and torque than before, so I’d rather put my money on the Bajaj Pulsar 200NS

 

To that, I’d say, wait! Don’t jump the gun just yet. The 2021 RTR 200 4V isn’t just an update for the sake of it; it’s a whole new animal now. A LOT has gone into the bike to make it more engaging to ride in the city and out of it. So what’s it like? And have the upgrades really made much of a difference?

Design and Features

There’s not much to talk about in terms of design, considering the bike looks identical to the previously launched BS6 model. It’s still a sharp, well-built streetfighter with high standards and a feature list that simply cannot be contested in this segment.


Of course, there’s a new matte blue paint scheme that looks striking, in our opinion, and will get you just the right amount of attention on the road. Also, the paint quality and finish is phenomenal, to say the least. We’ve already covered the bike’s overall design in detail in our previous review, which you can read about here.

The RTR may still retain the same 197.75cc single-cylinder engine with an oil-cooler, but what impressed us is just how much the motor has changed over the last three iterations. It’s currently the only bike in the 200cc space offering ride modes -- a feature that’s usually only available in the higher segments. 

 

The engine retune on the 2021 RTR also helps it extract 0.32PS and 0.45Nm more than the 2020 model. Gear ratios have been revised too, which means there’s more power available lower down the rev range. This not only makes the engine more tractable in the city but also a lot quicker throughout the rev range.  

 

Our performance test should shed some light on how much the RTR has improved. The initial gap is rather small with just 0.15 seconds separating the 2021 model from the current-gen RTR. But it’s a whole different story as you climb up the rev range. The new bike manages to shave a whole 1.7 second off the older model while gunning it from 0-100kmph. Good heavens, it’s even quicker than the Race Edition (carb), which was already quite fast to begin with. 

 

A meatier mid-range results in quicker roll-on acceleration, which improves quick overtakes within city limits. Out on the highway though, you would have to drop down a gear to stay within the powerband. 

 

Acceleration

2021 TVS Apache RTR 200 BS6

0-60kmph (Urban)

4.84 seconds

0-100kmph (Urban)

14.91 seconds

 

Switching to ‘Urban’ makes the throttle response more laid-back and limits the power and torque to 17.32PS and 16.51Nm respectively -- available slightly lower down the rev range. 

 

Having ride modes on a small 200cc streetfighter may sound like overkill, but it works. Let me explain. Not everyone wants 20.82PS at their disposal all the time. Some may prefer a leisurely ride with better fuel-efficiency. The ABS intrusion is also bumped up at the point that could be more useful to newer riders.

You’d probably expect fuel-efficiency to take a hit, given the 2021 RTR’s improved performance figures. But that’s far from the reality. 

 

The engine satisfies with a more linear power delivery. In layman's terms, you don’t have to work the engine as much to get the most out of it.  It can sit between 80-90kmph without breaking a sweat, which certainly helps its highway efficiency. Better bottom-end and a meatier mid-range mean the engine is at ease in city traffic as well. All in all, you could expect well over 500km on a full tank, but only if you’re gentle with the throttle.

The biggest change on the 2021 RTR is the front suspension setup. It’s still a telescopic fork but features preload adjustments which add a layer of flexibility that no other 200cc bike has on offer. 

 

With four preload settings available for the fork, TVS says that the bike’s front-end can be tailored for riders of varying weights (although TVS specifies this weight range between 65 and 80kg). Bumping up the front preload (which basically pre-compresses the front springs) not only helps the front suspension support a heavier load more comfortably but the slight change in geometry also allows for a more reactive front-end that’s quicker to steer. Of course, this comes at the expense of a bit of plushness from the front suspension on bad roads. 

 

We fiddled with the setup with a 75kg rider on board, and found that the second notch from the softest setting works best for overall rideability. It does a fantastic job at flattening bumps and potholes, and almost offers a carpet-like ride. 

 

The handling capabilities of the 2021 RTR 200 are further highlighted by its tyres. Sure, the configuration may be a bit odd -- Remora's at the front and the new Eurogrip Protorq SR tyres at the rear. But it works! The grip from these tyres are incredible, and it reflects in the braking department as well.

Braking was one of the biggest drawbacks on the older RTRs. That’s not the case anymore,though. Braking distances have improved by 3-5 metres compared to the previous-gen model. The improved numbers are down to the tyres and also the way the brakes are set up. It's the same configuration as before, but TVS has re-tuned the unit to offer better bite, feel, and progression through the levers.

The 2021 Apache RTR 200 is packed to the teeth with features. And the table above should paint a clear picture of just how ahead the RTR is of its competition. Majority of the features have been carried over from the previous iteration (read about it here). But what will impress you is the addition of adjustable brake and clutch levers, which elevate the overall riding experience by offering more flexibility to riders of all sizes. 

 

You also have three different ride modes (Rain, Urban, and Sport) that change the tune of the engine and the ABS intrusion. More on that later.
