TVS is all set to launch the Apache RTR 200 4V on 20th January with a 197.7cc, single-cylinder engine that throws out gas using a loud twin exhaust.

The much awaited TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is finally making its global debut on 20th January in India and Indonesia simultaneously, however the specs and pictures have already been revealed by leaked images. Just a day before the official launch of the motorcycle, a video with the new motorcycle’s exhaust note has surfaced on the internet. The video is very short and shows the speedometer while someone is revving the street-fighter and the sound it makes is melodious.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is based on the Draken concept that was showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo and is built on a single-downtube tubular steel frame. The front headlamp looks aggressive with LED DRLs placed on the top of the headlamp similar to that of the RTR 180. The minimal tail piece gets LED tail lamp, pillion grab rails with what appears to be air dampers below the pillion seat. The front fairing also seems to have air intakes for the air-cooled engine. The fuel tank continues to carry the RTR monogram.

The Apache RTR 200 4V is powered by a 197.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, 4-valve engine that produces a rather disappointing 20.23 HP at 8500 RPM and 18.1 Nm at 7000 RPM. This engine when mated on a 5-speed gearbox helps the street-fighter do 0-60 km/hr in 3.92 seconds and can go up to a top speed of 130 km/hr. The engine is a SOHC unit which will provide good low and mid-range performance while it will struggle as it nears the red line. The new motorcycle features twin ports on the exhaust.

The front wheel of the Apache RTR 200 has a 270 mm petal disc brake while the rear wheel has a 200 mm disc with optional dual-channel ABS. The street-fighter is suspended by telescopic forks at the front and the rear has a gas filled monoshock unit. The front wheel has 90/90/17 and the rear wheel has 130/70/17 TVS Srichakra tyres. Other features on the new motorcycle includes clip-on handlebars, split seats, steel swingarm, engine cowls and an all digital instrument console.
