Ashwin Ram

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.

ABS is not expected.

The launch date of the TVS Apache 200 has been confirmed for January 20. The model will then be presented at the 2016 Auto Expo in Greater Noida in early February.

The TVS Apache 200 will compete with the KTM Duke 200 and the Bajaj Pulsar AS200.

The Apache 200 is believed to be powered by a 200 cc single-cylinder air-cooled SOHC engine with an oil-cooler, that is expected to produce around 28 PS of maximum power and over 20 Nm of peak torque. Transmission duties could be assigned to a five-speed gearbox.

It is reported that the Apache could be quicker than its chief competitor, the KTM Duke 200. The other models in its price range would be the Bajaj Pulsar AS200, the upcoming Pulsar 200NS FI and the Hero Karizma, given that the Apache 200 is expected to be priced over INR 1 lakh.

The Apache 200 is expected to be offered in India only with TVS Tyres, while in Indonesia it could get Pirelli tyres.

With inspiration from the TVS Draken X21 concept, the Apache 200 borrows some styling elements from the Draken like the alloy wheels and expectedly the fuel tank design, but a good number of parts seem to be carried over from the current Apache variants, including the brake and clutch levers, handlebar grips, switch gear consoles, petal brake discs, rear-set foot pegs, gear shifter and the rear brake pedal.

While the TVS Apache 200 is expected to be offered in two or three variants in Indonesia, with the options of IRC Road Winner and Pirelli tyres, in India the bike is expected to be shod only with TVS Tyres, in one or two variants. Offer of ABS is less likely for India.
