TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 Highlights
The BS4-compliant Apache RTR 200 4V now features TVS' nifty SmartXonnect system. However, the addition of this tech means the bike now costs 1.14 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), a hike of Rs 2,500 over the standard variant. It offers the same set of features as the NTorq 125. That said, the companion app on the RTR 200 also displays details like lean angle, G-force, and gear shift pattern.
From a design standpoint, the bike remains largely unchanged. However, it is available in a set of new colours - black, grey, red, and white. It also gets sharp graphics, a fly screen, and an all-digital instrument console, which packs a tonne of features. Some of the highlights include a lap timer, acceleration timer, fastest speed recorder, service indicator, shift light indicator, and gear indicator. Other notable features include an offset fuel lid and the air ducts on the fuel tank which help channel airflow to cool the engine.
Powering the Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 is a 197.75cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine that produces 20.5PS (Carb) and 21PS (Fi) at 8500rpm. The torque output of 18.1Nm at 7000rpm is the same on both variants. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed transmission aided by a slip and assist clutch (a first in the segment). It uses a double cradle frame, a telescopic front fork, and a monoshock. Its 17-inch wheels come shod with TVS Remora tyres as standard, but you could opt for stickier Pirelli tyres as well. The bike’s braking setup comprises of a 270mm front disc and 240mm rear disc with dual-channel ABS right off the shelf. Unfortunately, ABS is only available with the carb variant at a premium of Rs 1,000 over the Fi variant.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 gets a starting price of Rs 1,11,845 (Ex-Showroom). The slightly more premium SmartXonnect version is available for Rs 1,14,550.

The newest iteration of TVS's 200cc street bike is called the Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0. Updates for 2018 include the introduction of 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.
