Surprise: Apache 200 Race Edition Launched with Slipper Clutch at 95K; Is Segment First!

Apache 200 Race Edition price is only Rs 1500 more than the regular trims…

Yes, TVS was late in the party in the 200cc segment; but once the agile Apache 200 has established itself as a worthy contender, TVS is now taking big strides. First, it was the fuel injected variant, which was followed by the ABS-equipped Apache and in a surprise, they have launched the Apache 200 with A-RT (Anti-Reverse Torque) Slipper Clutch!

You can read about How Slipper Clutch works here; it reduces clutch force (22 percent in case of Aapche 200) which enables quicker gear shifts. It also lessens engine braking upon high speed downshifts, hence preventing vehicle stability, specially during cornering.

Apache 200 Race Edition, as TVS is calling this variant as, is being offered in both carburetted and fuel injected trims. The 197.75 cc 5-speed engine continues to develop 20.5 PS (carb) and 21.0 PS (FI) of power and 18.1 Nm of max torque.

Apart from Slipper Clutch, other features Apache 200 Race Edition comes with are…

  • New Graphics – TVS has shared the black coloured Apache 200 with red graphics. It may be offered in other colours as well.
  • Fly-screen from Apache 200 FI

So, for the slipper clutch TVS is charging a reasonable Rs 1500 only and quite clearly the Apache RR 310 should get the tech sometime soon as well.
