TVS Apache RTR 200 4V with Slipper Clutch
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.
