TVS Apache RTR 200 Race Edition Engine Specifications
The new Apache RTR 200 gets the same 197.5 cc single-cylinder engine which produces 20.21 bhp on the carburetor variant and 20.71 bhp on the EFI version. The torque output remains the same at 18.1 Nm. TVS will offer the slipper clutch technology on the carburetor variant. The slipper clutch with EFI engine is the second option while the slipper clutch with the carburetor and ABS is the third choice for buyers. The EFI and ABS versions will be available only at select dealerships.
The Apache RTR 200 4V is the first motorcycle in its class to get a slipper clutch or an 'anti-reverse torque unit' as how TVS calls it. It reduces the force used to operate the clutch by 22 per cent, make the upshifts quicker and lowers wheel-hopping when downshifting aggressively and while cornering as well.
