Apache 200 latest price hike is Rs 1050 which takes the effective increase to Rs 14,550 over the BS4 trim…
It seems manufacturers are not very sure about the pricing of their Bharat Stage 6 compliant products. It is obvious that most of them would be considering to keep the hike minimal, but it appears that many of them are adjusting them after knowing the competitor’s pricing strategies.
Barely have we entered the BS6 era and TVS has already increased the prices on its Apaches three times. The hike is on the new BS6 compliant Apache 200 as well as Apache 160 4V. Here are the latest prices..
Apache 200 Latest Price
|Original BS6 price||March 2020 price||May 20 Price||Latest Price Aug 20|
|Apache 200||1.24 Lakh||1.25 Lakh||1,27,500||1,28,550|
With the latest price hike of Rs 1050, the effective hike in this transition has increased to Rs 14,550.
Apache 160 Latest Price
|Original BS6 Price||March Price||May 2020 Price||Latest Price Aug 20|
|Apache 160 Drum||Rs 99,950||Rs 1,00,950||Rs 1,02,950||Rs 1,04,000|
|Apache 160 Disc||Rs 1,03,000||Rs 1,04,000||Rs 1,06,000||Rs 1,07,050|

So, the quantum of price hike on the smaller Apache 160 4V is Rs 4050 over the first announced BS6 price. This takes the entry Apache 160 4V variant comfortably over that 1 Lakh mark. The new prices are updated on the official website and there is no reason that has been given!
Rival Bajaj has also updated its Pulsar NS200 to BS6 and it costs Rs 1,29,53 (after a few hikes in prices). Sibling Apache 310 has also become costlier by Rs 5000 (more details).
