TVS Facebook page’s latest posts suggest the arrival of the Apache RTR 200 ABS FI.

The Facebook page of TVS Motor company posted an image saying “Something exciting is coming your way”. The bike’s dedicated website shows the detailed features of the upcoming motorcycle.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 was launched in 2016, but the ABS FI version was delayed, according to TVS, due to heavy demand for the carburettor version.

TVS has built the bike on a Double Cradle Split Synchro Stiff Frame. A telescopic fork at the front and a monoshock at the rear perform the suspension duties. For braking, the bike employs a 270 mm petal disc at the front and a 240 mm petal disc at the rear. The bike gets dual channel ABS with RLP Rear Lift-off Protection control. This system prevents the locking up of discs during extreme braking and also prevents the lifting of the rear end.
