The single-channel ABS variant of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V will be sold alongside the existing dual-channel ABS version.
Owing to the BS6 transition, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V (dual-channel ABS) has become quite expensive, with an ex-showroom price of ₹1,28,550 (Delhi). Therefore, to offer better value to customers, TVS has launched a more affordable variant of the Apache RTR 200 4V, which features TVS' single-channel SuperMoto ABS unit. It is priced at ₹1,23,550 (ex-showroom, Delhi), which makes it more affordable by ₹5,000.
However, the price drop is strictly for the change in the ABS unit and does not affect the bike in any other way. In other words, the single-channel ABS version comes with the exact same kit as the other variant. Both variants are still powered by a 198cc Fuel-injected (Fi) single-cylinder oil-cooled motor, which develops 20.2bhp and 16.8Nm of torque.
With the BS6 update, the Apache RTR 200 4V also received some additional features, like a LED headlamp, new body graphics, a new Eurogrip radial rear tyre, and Glide Through Technology (GTT). Older features like Bluetooth connectivity via TVS SmartXonnect, and an Anti-Reverse Torque (A-RT) slipper clutch are also part of the standard fitment.
We recently pitted the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V against the Hero Xpulse 200 in a cross-segment comparison (read all about it here) and even compared the old BS4 version of the Apache RTR 200 4V to its BS6 successor to spot the key differences.
