Set for launch simultaneously in India and Indonesia, the Apache RTR 200 4V will be offered in six colours – Black, Grey, Matte Black, White, Red and Yellow. The website has also posted some photos of the halogen headlamp with LED DRLs, fully digital instrument console, fuel tank of each colour, air-cooled engine with oil-cooler (radiator), exhaust canister with muffler, alloy wheel with petal disc rotor, and the side profile of the red Apache 200.

The 197.75 cc single-cylinder air-cooled carbureted engine with an oil-cooler, OHC and four-valves, produces 20.23 PS (15.09 KW) at 8,500 rpm and 18.1 Nm at 7,000 rpm, and is mated to a five-speed gearbox.
The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V gets a 270 mm petal disc brake upfront and a 200 mm unit at the rear which may be governed by ABS on a high-end variant. The tyres are TVS SriChakra of sizes 90/90 R17 at the front and 130/70 R17 at the rear.
The performance figures of the bike are given as 3.9 secs for 0-60 km/h acceleration and 130 km/h for top-speed. Expect the RTR 200 4V to be priced a shade under INR 1 lakh,
