TVS has updated the RTR 200 4V for the model year 2022. The motorcycle gets a very minor cosmetic update and a nominal price hike of Rs. 800.
Earlier this year, TVS updated its Apache RTR 160 4V. Now, similar updates have been carried forward to the bigger Apache RTR 200 4V. The 200cc motorcycle now gets a new headlamp assembly. The arrangement includes an all-LED unit for high, as well as, low beams. The cluster includes a horizontal all-LED DRL as well. Other than the new headlamp assembly, the motorcycle features the same styling as before. The fuel tank design, body panels and ergonomics are exactly the same as before.
The motorcycle continues with the same engine as before. The source of power is a single-cylinder, 197.75cc, oil-cooled unit. The engine is tuned to produce 20.5bhp at 9,000rpm and 17.25Nm at 7,800rpm, and all of it is forwarded to the wheel via a five-speed gearbox. The motorcycle also gets multiple riding modes as well. Other convenience features have been carried forward in the new motorcycle as is.
Other cycle parts such as Showa sourced front and rear suspension units have been carried forward as well. The motorcycle gets the disc brake arrangement on either end, and the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is available in two variants – single and dual-channel ABS.
The single-channel ABS is priced at Rs. 1.33 lakh (ex-showroom), whereas the dual-channel ABS variant asks for Rs. 1.38 lakh (ex-showroom). The motorcycle mainly rivals the Bajaj NS200 and the Yamaha MT-15, but the prices of the 2022 Apache RTR 200 4V are comparable with the Bajaj N250’s price as well.
