TVS Motor Company's new flagship model for the Apache series -- Apache RTR 200 4V -- has started arriving at the dealers of the company in southern states. If the emerging reports are to be believed, TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, which is open for bookings now, commands a waiting period of up to two months.
A report of Rushlane says that TVS has started dispatching the Apache RTR 200 4V to its dealers and the dealers in Bangalore and Chennai have received the first consignment of the model. The company, which has plans to launch the model across the country in next two months, will complete the shipment to the dealers in South India first and then later move to other cities like Pune, Mumbai, Ahmedabad, New Delhi, among others.
Since the initial roll-out of the Apache RTR 200 4V models is limited, the bike is expected to have a longer waiting period in the country. The waiting period of the Apache RTR 200 4V is likely to go down later once the company launches the model in all states.
According to the report, the Apache RTR 200 4V, which was launched at a price of Rs 88,990 (ex-showroom, New Delhi), now costs about Rs 2,000 more as the company has added features like higher quality switches and more. The Apache RTR 200 4V was launched in both carbureted and fuel-injected variants. The report says that in Bangalore, while the carbureted variant is priced at Rs 1.08 lakh, the fuel-injected version comes for Rs 1.27 lakh (on-road).
Based on the double cradle split Syncro stiff frame, the Apache RTR 200 4V is powered by a 197.75cc oil-cooled engine available in both carbureted- and fuel-injected variants. The carbureted version makes 20.3bhp, while the fuel-injected versions churn out 21bhp at 8500 rpm. In both variants, torque output remains the same at 18.1Nm at 7,000 rpm. The engine is mated to five-speed gearbox. While the carbureted version needs a minimum of 3.95 seconds to reach 60kmph before topping out at 128kmph, the FI model requires 3.9 seconds and comes with a top speed of 129kmph.
