The Apache RTR 200 4V gets a 270 mm dia petal disc up front and a 240 mm dia petal disc at the rear. The brakes have good bite and feel progressive quite unlike what one got on the old bike. TVS have said that ABS with RLP (Rear Lift Protection) is also on the way and should be available as an option over the next few months.
TVS launched the Apache RTR 200 4V starting at Rs 88,990, ex-showroom in Mumbai, for the carbureted version shod with Remora tyres. Add fuel injection and Pirelli rubber and you’re looking at something that’s Rs 15,000 to Rs 20,000 more expensive. Another Rs 8,000 to Rs 10,000 and you’ll also be able to buy any of these versions with ABS and RLP. At that price the bike certainly looks like good value.
