2018 Apache 200 changes are only cosmetic but they do bring about a refreshing face…
Apart from bringing in new variants into the Apache 200 range, TVS has revamped the complete line-up. They have introduced the 2018 Apache 200 which comes with a few minor changes as listed below…
2018 Apache 200 Changes
- Weight Increment – Apache 200 now weighs 149 kg against 148 (carb variant) and 148.5 (FI variant) kg earlier. As a result the power to weight ratio has also been altered.
- Top Speed – The new Apache 200 carb can now do a claimed top speed of 128 kph, 1 kph more than the older version, according to TVS’ website. It has remained the same 129 kph for the FI trim.
- Colour Palette – TVS used to offer seven colours on the older model with the yellow and pearl white colours being restricted to the FI variant only. According to its site, now the 2018 Apache 200 is available in five different shades. TVS has not listed both the colours of Apache FI and it appears that they have been discontinued, however, a confirmation on this is pending. Which colour(s) will the FI variant come in now is also not known at the moment.
4. New Graphics – The 2018 Apache 200 now comes in refreshing contrast coloured graphics. The Apache decal on the tank is replaced by TVS’ pony moniker whereas ‘RTR’ continues to be embossed on the tank in big bold letters.
