We got the sniff of it and here we have the first ever absolutely uncamouflaged spyshots of the most-awaited TVS Apache 200, full market name of which is Apache RTR 200 4V.
Quite clearly, the motorcycle has an uncanny resemblance with the existing Apache range and there are subtle hints of the Draken concept. Along with the pics, we also have the official specs of the motorcycle.
Apache 200 Engine
Apache 200 gets a 197.75 cc 4 valve single cylinder engine which appears to be a rebored unit of Apache 180’s motor. Maximum power produced is 20.23 bhp at 8500 rpm whereas the peak torque stands at 18.1 Nm at 7000 rpm. The motor is air-cooled with oil cooling (same as Pulsar 220’s oil cooling) and has been developed with inputs from BMW.
Apache 200 Specs & Features
The motorcycle is carburetted and as we had anticipated earlier, comes with a 5-speed gearbox. Upfront, 270mm petal disc brakes perform duty helped by 200 mm petal disc at the rear. The motorcycle will be offered with ABS. It will also become the first TVS motorcycle to offer monoshock absorber and there is a mobile-charging provision too. The frame is touted to be an all-new lightweight unit.
TVS is using Srichakra tyres – 90/90 R17 at the front and 130/70 R17 at the rear. Apache 200 weighs only 140 kg and will be offered in the following six color options –
- Matte black
0 to 60 kmph is claimed in 3.9 seconds and TVS will be promoting it for its performance.

Launch is scheduled on 20th of January followed by its media rides next day. We expect TVS to price Apache 200 aggressive at around Rs 85,000 – 88,000 for the non-ABS variant and add another few grands for the ABS-equipped 200. So, will the biggest and the most powerful Apache steal the thunder from 200cc Pulsars?
