The Apache RTR 200 4V gets a completely refreshed styling, though it does look like an evolution of the smaller Apache RTR range. The fuel tank extensions, raised tail section and the edgy front fascia give the motorcycle the quintessentially aggressive look of a streetfighter. The muffler gets a very interesting double barrel design, which not only gives the bike a loud exhaust note, but also improves the emission figures of the bike. The clip-on handlebars and the footpeg position are optimised to offer a racy seating position.
The Apache RTR 200 4V is built around a double cradle chassis, which has been designed to offer superior performance on the track without compromising city riding. At the heart of this chassis is a 198cc oil-cooled single-cylinder engine, with four valves. This engine is available with the option of either a carburettor or a fuel-injection system. While the former produces 20.2bhp and a peak torque of 18.1Nm, the fuel injected engine produces 0.5bhp extra.
The Apache RTR 200 4V’s 17-inch wheels ride on conventional telescopic front forks and a KYB rear monoshock. It gets a 270mm petal disc brake at the front and a 240mm disc in the rear. ABS is offered as an optional extra.
The Apache RTR 200 4V is available in seven paint schemes – matte red, matte yellow, matte gray, matte black, matte white, white and black. It rivals the Bajaj Pulsar 220F and the Pulsar AS200.
