TVS Motor Company is reportedly planning to roll out dual-channel ABS as optional in all variants of the flagship model of its Apache series, the Apache RTR 200 4V, in India. RushLane reports that the company would offer ABS in all variants of the Apache RTR 200 4V.
Launched in January, the Apache RTR 200 4V is available in carbureted and fuel injected variants. The latest report says that the ABS upgrade can be made at the dealers of the company and is likely to cost about Rs. 10,000 to Rs. 12,000, including labour charges. TVS, which is planning to roll out the Apache RTR 200 4V across the country in next two months, has started the delivery in South India. The report also adds that the company is also planning to ramp up production of the model in the coming months.
Based on the double cradle split Syncro stiff frame, the Apache RTR 200 4V is powered by 197.75cc oil-cooled engine. While the carbureted version makes 20.3bhp, the fuel injected versions churn out 21bhp at 8500 rpm. In both the variants, torque output remains the same at 18.1Nm at 7,000 rpm. The engine is mated to five-speed gearbox.
It employs telescopic front suspension and mono-suspension at rear. The braking is taken care of by 270mm disc at front and 240mm disc at rear and the motorcycle runs on 90/90 section front and 130/70 section rear tyres in 17 inch wheels.
