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.
To get a torquey engine.
The TVS Apache 200 has been snapped testing with heavy camouflage in Indonesia . The spyshots via IwanBanaran show the rear and the rear three quarter view of the upcoming street fighter. It is identified to be the next generation Apache by the octagonal silencer can with two exhaust pipes.
The report states that the Apache 200’s engine will be tuned for high torque and still it would be the fastest bike in its segment. The details of the engine is not clearly known yet; the publication has mentioned that it will have around 200 cc of displacement, four valves and an SOHC arrangement.
An earlier report mentioned that the motor on the Apache 200 is liquid-cooled, but the spyshots taken in India recently revealed an air-cooled mill. It is possible that the Apache 200 will use an air-cooled engine with an oil-cooler, similar to the case of Bajaj Pulsar 220F, Hero Karizma ZMR and the upcoming Royal Enfield Himalayan.
Regarding styling, the new Apache is believed to be inspired by the TVS Draken X21 concept showcased at the 2014 Auto Expo. Components from the Draken such as the alloy wheels have been seen in the Apache test mules, but the LED tail lamp and the rear stalk as revealed by these spyshots seem to be original.
