TVS Motor Company has introduced the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with ABS. The carburetor variant of the motorcycle will now boast of a first-in-segment Dual-Channel Anti-Lock Braking System (ABS).
The new generation Dual-Channel ABS unit on the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V has been developed through extensive research on the race track. The Dual-Channel ABS comes with Rear Wheel Lift-off Protection (RLP) control which offers quick detection and recovery of the wheel-lock and achieves higher dynamic stability through precise close-loop slip control. This variant will also bear an ABS sticker on the right side of the front mud guard.
There are no mechanical changes to the engine and the motorcycle boasts peak power of 20.5 PS @ 8500 rpm and peak torque of 18.1 Nm @ 7000 rpm mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The claimed top speed stands at 127 kmph, while the 0-60 kmph takes 3.95 seconds.
The variant is christened as TVS Apache RTR 200 4V ABS and will be available across India at a price of INR 1,07,485 (ex-Showroom Delhi).
