Apache 200 latest price hike is Rs 1500 which takes the effective increase to Rs 16,050 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. Or this could be pure profit making at one go, after the COVID-led lull!
Barely have we entered the BS6 era and TVS has already increased the prices on its Apaches four times. The latest hike is on the new BS6 compliant Apache 200 as well as Apache 160 4V. Here are the latest prices..

Along with the latest increment of Rs 1500, the quantum of overall price hike on the smaller Apache 160 4V is Rs 5550 over the first announced BS6 prices. 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 also has now crossed that 1.3 lakh price barrier. The Apache 200 Single Channel ABS has also become costlier (more details).
