by Autocar Pro News Desk , 04 Oct 2019


TVS Motor Co today rolled out the new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with Bluetooth-enabled SmartXonnect mobile application technology, priced at Rs 114,345 (ex-showroom Delhi). 

The Bluetooth-enabled TVS SmartXonnect technology is paired with the TVS Connect App, which is available on Google Play Store and iOS App store.  The application hosts multiple features including navigation, race telemetry, tour mode, lean angle mode, crash alert and call / SMS notification.

The TVS SmartXonnect has key unique features like lean angle mode, race telemetry and crash alert.  While the lean angle mode uses the gyroscopic sensor on the phone to record the rider’s lean angle through the corners while displaying it on the cluster, the race telemetry records and summarises essential data at the end of every race or ride. The crash alert system, which is triggered when the bike senses a fall, enters crash alert mode within 180 seconds and notifies the rider’s emergency contacts with the location of the fall.

The carbureted TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, which is equipped with dual-channel ABS, is powered by a 197.75cc single-cylinder motor which is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.  The engine develops 20.5 PS of maximum power at 8500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of torque at 7000rpm.
