TVS Apache RTR 200 4V gets slipper clutch and racy visuals
The updated version comes with a slipper clutch termed ‘Anti-Reverse Torque’, and TVS Motor India launched the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 and it is the first bike in its own section to find the technology. The 2018 Apache RTR 200 4V also receives a pair of snazzy-looking stickers, together with a flyscreen to differentiate it from the old version. The slipper clutch is predicted to enable faster upshifts around 22 per cent, thereby cutting down the time between gear changes and therefore enabling faster lap times onto a racetrack based on TVS Motor.
As is true for slipper clutch technologies, the upgraded Apache RTR 200 4V may even provide safer downshifts by preventing the back wheel from locking up. This should thus assist in preventing the back from hopping, especially around corners, even in case of aggressive downshifts, thus enhancing stability by restricting torque. TVS Motor also asserts the Apache RTR 200 4V provides simpler, lighter equipment changes than previously, thus improving the riding expertise on street too. There’s absolutely no change to this powertrain however and for 2018 that the Apache RTR 200 4V will last to be powered with the exact same 197.75cc, a single cylinder engine which generates 20.5PS about the carbureted model and 21PS about the fuel injected version together with 18.1Nm of torque.
While the upgraded version is available throughout the nation, the EFI and ABS variants especially can be found only at select dealerships.
