Apache 200 latest price hike is Rs 1000 which takes the effective hike to 11,000 over the BS4 trim or roughly 10 percent…
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 would adjust them after knowing the competitor’s pricing strategies.
We have not entered the BS6 era yet and this is the second price hike on BS6 products which we will talk about. After Suzuki increased Rs 2300 on its Access BS6, TVS has also hiked prices of its BS6 compliant Apache 200 as well as Apache 160 4V. Here are the new prices..
Apache 200 Latest Price
|Original BS6 price||Latest BS6 price|
|Apache 200||1.24 Lakh||1.25 Lakh|
Apache 160 Latest Price
|Original BS6 Price||Latest BS6 Price|
|Apache 160 Drum||Rs 99,950||Rs 1,00,950|
|Apache 160 Disc||Rs 1,03,000||Rs 1,04,000|
*all prices ex-showroom Delhi
So, the quantum of price hike on all the variants is Rs 1000. This takes the entry Apache 160 4V variant over 1 Lakh. The new prices are updated on the official website and there are no other changes that we can notice on either of these Apaches.
Rival Bajaj hasn’t officially updated its Pulsar NS200 to BS6 yet and the BS4 variant is priced at Rs 1,14,355 (ex-Delhi). Spy pics have confirmed that the motorcycle will get fuel injection even in the India-spec variant which means that it will get a fairly substantial price hike as well, which would either bring it in a similar price bracket like the Apache 200 or it may also also cost slightly higher.
