TVS Motor Company has introduced the new Apache RTR 200 4V (dual-channel ABS) motorcycle with a bunch of segment-first features, which also is part of the brand’s 4 million global sales milestone.

The new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V motorcycle gets first-in-segment three ride modes –Sport, Urban and Rain. This intelligent system enables riders to shift between ride modes on the go, using the ride mode switch on the handlebar.

  • The Urban Mode accounts for the engine power delivery tuned to deliver optimum power and control for the city needs, with the ABS optimised for a quick response.
  • The Rain Mode primes the ABS to deliver the maximum response with a strong lever pulsation feel. It triggers the ABS to come in early, for better response in wet road condition, keeping the rider in control of the vehicle.
  • The Sport Mode allows for maximum power and sharp acceleration. The ABS is mapped for the least intervention and highest permissible slip percentage for faster performance.

The Apache RTR 200 4V is now equipped with first-in-segment adjustable suspension. The all-new high-performance Showa front suspension comes with a preloaded adjustment that allows the rider to choose between a plush ride or track ride, while the new Showa rear suspension is tuned for enhanced track performance. It also comes with adjustable brakes and clutch levers with 3-step adjustment, which are ergonomically designed basis the phalange of the middle finger, and cover 5 to 95 percentile of riders. Additionally, the motorcycle has become lighter with 1kg weight reduction, and refinements in the brake system have been made to deliver a sharper and improved brake performance.
