TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with Slip­per Clutch

Bike India - - IGNITION -

THE TVS APACHE RTR 200 LINE GETS A NEW VARI­ANT, THIS time with an “Anti-Re­verse Torque (A-RT) Slip­per Clutch”. The new vari­ant bears a “Race Edi­tion 2.0” moniker and is avail­able across the range at a start­ing price of Rs 95,185, Rs 1.08 lakh, and Rs 1.09 lakh re­spec­tively (all prices exshow­room, Delhi).

We reckon that the ad­di­tion of a slip­per clutch will im­prove the mo­tor­cy­cle’s abil­ity as a track tool. In ad­di­tion to pre­cise gear shifts us­ing min­i­mal ef­fort, TVS claim that the A-RT Slip­per Clutch re­duces the clutch force re­quired for up-shifts by 22 per cent and also gets rid of wheel-hop­ping dur­ing high-speed down-shifts.

The Race Edi­tion 2.0 is quite a looker ow­ing to its new race-in­spired graph­ics. TVS also claim that the new fly­screen will im­prove the mo­tor­cy­cle’s aero­dy­nam­ics. Bar­ring the slip­per clutch, the mo­tor­cy­cle re­mains the same me­chan­i­cally. TVS also an­nounced that the EFI and ABS vari­ants of the Race Edi­tion 2.0 would only be avail­able at se­lect deal­er­ships.
