Ashwin Ram N P, Ashwin is a guy with a slightly unorthodox perception of everything. His struggle to choose a career path, between art and automotive engineering, has landed him in the field of auto journalism, where he has paved way for himself to practise both.
Expected to launch in the coming weeks.
A test mule of the TVS Apache 200 has been snapped up-close in Chennai by Automobile Tamilan. The spyshots reveal the differences between the Indian and the export versions, chiefly the Indonesian model.
Based on recent spyshots taken in Indonesia, the nation’s local publications reported that the Apache 200 is likely to be launched in two or three variants with the third one possibly being a special edition. At least one of these variants is expected to be offered with Pirelli tyres while the standard option would be the IRC Road Winner. The latest spyshots of the Apache 200 taken in India reveal that the model is shod with TVS tyres.
In Indonesia, two prototypes of the Apache 200 are often snapped testing together. The most notable difference between the two models is their handlebar. One has a traditional, single-piece tube while the other features clip-on/split handlebars.
The Apache 200 trial models that have been snapped in India thus far featured only the conventional handlebar setup. Hence the export version can be expected to have substantial differences in specifications compared to the Indian model.
The TVS Apache 200 is reported to launch on January 20 or at the Auto Expo 2016 in February. It is expected to be priced around INR 1.25 lakhs (ex-showroom). None of the units have been snapped with ABS-equipped brakes thus far.
