TVS has not updated its Apache range for a long time now but despite that they have been registering some staggering sales which have only risen in the last few months! To take the game head-on against arch-rival Bajaj, TVS is preparing a bigger 200 cc Apache and this is apart from the K03 based motorcycle(s) that are being developed in collaboration with BMW!

Apache 200: Key Pointers

Here’s all the dough about the upcoming Apache 200…

  • All new 200 cc single cylinder 4 valve SOHC engine just like the one on the new Pulsar 200s
  • Development of the bike has been done in collaboration with BMW Motorrad which has helped in making the cooling system of the bike
  • The bike will sport a flat tank lid and will get a digital instrumentation console
  • Adding to the sporty quotient will be LED tail lamps and split seats
  • The bike might even sport Pirellis in the top variant
  • Apache 200 will just share the brand name Apache with the existing 160 & 180 RTRs but will essentially be an all-new motorcycle.
  • While the front may not sport USD forks but the rear will certainly get a rear monoshock setup (as we have already seen in the latest test mule).
