Tvs Showcased A Radical-Looking Naked Called The Draken Concept Back At The 2014 Auto Expo. It Was A Complete Departure From The Run-Of-The-Mill Apache Bikes Back In The Day. Tvs Wanted To Replicate The Concept Properly Into The Production Form, So The Hosur-Based Company Took Its Own Sweet Time – Two Years To Be Precise. Finally, In January 2016, Tvs Launched The Apache Rtr 200 4v – That Most Powerful Bike To Roll Out Of Tvs’ Factory At That Time. Understandably, The Bikemaker Made Good Use Of Its Experience In Racing, And Some Of The Technologies Trickled Down In The Production Bike As Well. Case In Point Is The Oil-Cooled Combustion Chamber (O3c) Technology With Ram-Air Assist In The Engine; Kyb-Tuned Rear Monoshock, Among Others.

The Rtr 200 Looks Similar To The 2016 Model It Replaces, With 3 Distinctive Changes Being The New Paint Schemes, The Sharp Sketched Out Stickers And The Small Windshield Over The Headlight. Other Than These, The Styling Cues, Typical Of The Rtr Family, Have Been Retained.

The Headlight With The Boomerang-Shaped Drl’s Looks Edgy. However, While The Brightness From The Lamp Is Adequate, It Could Have Been Better Since The Visibility Drops In The Face Of Glares From Oncoming Traffic. The All-Digital, White-Backlit Instrument Cluster Packs In Readouts Like A Lap Timer, A Top Speed Recorder And Fastest Lap Recorded, Apart From The Standard Readouts On Offer.

The Quality Of The Switchgear Is Top Notch And The Switches Work Well Too. Other Design Highlights Include The Offset Fuel Lid And The Air Ducts On The Aggressive Looking Fuel Tank, Which Are Purposeful And Help Channelize The Airflow For Better Engine Cooling.
