- The design of this Apache is more like a naked street fighter. The tank is more muscular. Alloy wheels are new. For the first time Monoshock is installed in the bike. There are twin seats. TVS has been able to maintain a sporty look in this version of Apache also. The looks of the TVS Apache RTR 200 is an evolution of an older Apache with fabulous looks, extended tank and tight rear. It also has LED front lamps and integrated tail lamps. It has an offset fuel lid, which is different from the old Apache’s. The grab rail design of this Apache RTR is attractive. The design of exhaust is a twin barrel. The exhaust of this Apache RTR 200 is also different from the older ones. In addition to all these features there is a Ramp Air Induction Duct in the bike which provides additional cooling to cylinder of the bike.
- The new TVS Apache RTR 200 comes with a Fully Digital Race Diagnostic Speedometer. This Apache does not have an analog console for tachometer as in the previous versions of Apache. This digital console comes with the amazing features like lap timer, top speed recorder, gear indicator, acceleration time recorder. There is also a shift light in this console but the light is small as compared to other indicators.
- The Plastics of this bike are nice to touch. The switches in this bike are also nice to use. The clutch and the brake lever are provided with the aluminium finish. The bike is provided with two types of engines. The first type is the Fuel Injected version and the second type is the carburetor version. However there is not much difference in the power output of the bike. The Fuel Injected version gives 21 Ps of power and the Carburetted version generates 20.5 Ps of power. The performance of this bike is improved over the previous Apache RTR’s. This bike is available with two versions of tyres. One is the TVS tyres and the other is the Pirelli tyres.
- This bike is taller from the old Apache RTR’s. The acceleration of the bike is good as it reaches 0-60 Kmph in just 3.95 seconds and 0-100 Kmph in 12 seconds. There is no vibration in the bike till 8000 RPM and the power dropping is also very sharp. Exhaust note is throttling and seats are comfortable.
- The design of the TVS Apache RTR 200 is taken from TVS Draken -21 250. But this bike misses on few things when compared to Draken. The cast alloy swing arm, inverted forks, LED tail unit are the few things that this RTR misses when compared to TVS Draken X-21 250. This bike is provided with dual channel ABS with RLP (optional). In terms of handling department this bike has Double Check Valve Bush Front Fork. The KYB Mono Tube suspension is provided for the first time in the Apache RTR. The frame of this bike is Race Origin Double Cradle Split Synchro Stiff Frame which is more steadier. Now all these things have contributed a lot to make this RTR 200 more stable. All of these things have added to the stability of this bike makes the rider confident enough on going to the corners. The front end of this bike does not dive too much.
- The breaking of this bike is not as expected. The rear brake of the bike is fine because of the bigger discs but the front discs are not convincing. The front brakes lack the feel also as it used to be in the previous Apaches. But the bike comes with the ABS version so need to worry about the brakes.
The overall impression of the bike is good and it has maintained the reputation of the previous Apache RTR’s. The bike is really good when it comes to acceleration and it will give you a racing feel and a lot more confidence when you will ride this bike.
