The Race telemetry will provide minute details of each and every ride you take on the new Apache RTR 200 4V. These data include average speed, gear shifting pattern, distance covered and much more.
The Crash alert system is a very important feature as it will get activated will the bike senses a fall. This system will send messages with the crash location to the emergency contacts of the rider. All this will happen within 180 seconds if rider doesn’t pick up the bike again. This mode will be of great help if the rider happens to meet with grave injuries.
