New Apache 200 price is Rs 2500 more than the non-connected version and it will be available for purchase from this month itself.
Though it ventured in this 200cc segment late but TVS is almost on the verge of defining it in the months to come. It has launched the new Apache 200 with SmartXonnect feature. As we have seen on the Ntorq, the new Apache 200 can be paired with an app on your smartphone via Bluetooth. The instrument cluster is now capable of showing various interesting features.
You can connect your new Apache 200 with TVS Connect App which is available for android users on Google Play and iOS users on app store. The motorcycle now has…
- turn by turn navigation
- low fuel alert with assist
- tour mode
- race telemetry
- lean angle sensor
- crash alert
- call and notification alert.
You also have a dedicated information control switch on the switchgear to navigate the options. TVS is also offering the new Apache with gold finish racing chain.
The motorcycle continues to be powered by the same 197.75 cc single cylinder engine which is still BSIV compliant. Mated to a 5-speed gearbox it (carb version) produces 20.5 PS of peak power at 8500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of max torque at 7000 rpm.
New Apache 200 Price
Going by the terminology used in the press note, the new Apache 200 is available only in the carb + dual channel ABS version. It has been priced at Rs 1,14,345. The older model (without this connected feature) costs Rs 1,11,845 which means TVS is charging a premium of Rs 2500. All prices ex-showroom Delhi.
The new variant is offered in two colours of black and white. Deliveries commence from October 2019 onwards.
The strategy, as it appears, is to continue the current BSIV version as much as possible and introduce the BSVI variant as close to its deadline (April 2020) as possible. The reason is simple – BSVI upgrade will cause a significant price hike on a motorcycle and this will eventually mean an advantage to the competitor, if done now. And hence, a closer-to-April introduction will mean a level playing field for all.
