Gets a 4-valve SOHC engine.
PT TVS Motor Company Indonesia has revealed the name of the upcoming all-new Apache series, as the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. The suffix 4V denotes the 4-valve configuration of the motorcycle’s new, 200 cc engine. Given that the motor is believed to have an SOHC arrangement, the Apache 200 can be expected to have a high, low-end torque output.

The model is scheduled to launch in India on January 20.

It is reported to be offered with 17-inch alloy wheels wearing TVS tyres of 90/90 profile at front and 130/70 at the rear. The front disc brake is of 270 mm diameter and that of the rear is 250 mm. Dual channel ABS is expected to be offered as an option.
