TVS Apache RTR 200 FI ABS Launch Soon; Teased!

0

Hosur-based South Indian two-wheeler manufacturer, TVS Motor Company, will soon launch a new variant of the TVS Apache 200 4V. It’s worth a mention here that the 200cc Apache was launched over a year ago, but got only carbureted engines. While the new motorcycle won plenty of accolades for its free-revving motor and great dynamics, people have been anticipating the launch of the fuel-injection plus ABS model. Well, it looks like the wait will soon get over as the company will soon launch the much awaited TVS Apache RTR 200 FI ABS model.

While official launch details are yet to come, the manufacturer recently updated its website with a teaser image with a caption that “something exciting is coming your way”. Not just this, even the official website of the new TVS Apache RTR 200 ABS FI model has gone live. All this is a proof enough that the launch isn’t too far away in the offing. The 200cc Apache was launched in H1, 2016 and got an update earlier this year. This update brought in a BS4-compliant engine and AHO. While prices of the Fuel Injection version were revealed back at the time of the launch, it’s only now that this variant will officially go on sale.

Thanks to a really high demand for the carburettor variants, the manufacturer couldn’t launch the fuel injection version with ABS. However, it now seems like the company has managed to not only increase its manufacturing capacity but have also fine-tuned the FI engine for its market launch. With the fuel injection, this 197.75cc, oil-cooled engine outputs 0.5 BHP more power than the carburettor unit. More refinement and smoothness are a given.

TVS Apache RTR 200 FI ABS Launch Date

Launch Date September 2017

The manufacturer is yet to reveal the official launch date. However, going by the fact that the company has already released the official website and has even started teasing the new motorcycle, we are sure the new FI ABS version will launch in a month’s time. Also, it’s now for sure that the Apache RTR 200 fuel injection version will launch much ahead of the TVS Apache RR 310s.
