TVS Apache is one of the most popular motorcycles among biking enthusiast in the country and the brand is known to widely publicise the motorcycle available in 160cc and 180cc variants.
TVS is now all set to launch the powerful 200cc engine in the Apache range and the launch is scheduled in November 2015, reports MotorOctane.
The TVS Apache 200 will also undergo significant design change from the 160cc and 180cc siblings. The design will be inspired from the Draken X21 concept that TVS showcased at the 2014 Delhi Auto Expo. It will feature a razor sharp design with chiseled edges and mono suspension at the rear will also be seen. The motorcycle is expected to come with disc brakes for both the wheels and the bike will also sport the new Michelin soft compound tyres that will provide improved road grip. There will be a regular model and an ABS equipped variant on offer.
The motorcycle will be based on the 'RTR' platform that also underpins the TVS Apache 160 and 180. The new 200cc engine will be built on the current 180cc engine. The 200cc unit will be a fuel-injected, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine that is expected to churn out over 20bhp and will be mated to six-speed gearbox.
Additionally, the Apache 200 will get a pair of sleek indicators, LED taillight, clip-on handlebar, digital instrument console, headlamp with LED daytime running lights and a split seat to enhance the sportiness. The motorcycle will be pitted against the KTM Duke/RC 200 and the Bajaj Pulsar RS 200.
