TVS Apache RTR 200 4V modified with Draken Concept inspired design theme comes with premium features like USD forks and dual disc brakes
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is one of the most popular models in the South Asian market and it is available in both Fuel Injected and Carburettor variants. In the Indonesian market, TVS is currently offering the Apache RTR 200 4V only in Fuel Injected variant. In this article, we are featuring Apache RTR 200 4V modified with Draken Concept inspired design theme.
The changes on the modified Apache RTR 200 4V compared to the stock model is minor as the headlamp gets a dark tint, which gives a similar look like the Draken Concept. The matte finish of regular model has been carried forward but the customer has given red accents on various parts like tank scoops, fuel filler, brake callipers and more.
The mechanical changes start with new golden finished upside down forks at the front instead of the telescopic forks while the mono-shock at the rear has been carried forward from the regular model. The single petal disc brake at the front has given way for two petal disc brakes, which improves braking performance considerably.
But the single disc brake setup at the rear remains stock. The front and rear wheels are bigger than stock model and the alloy wheels also come with a new design theme. Apart from this, the stock suspension has been replaced by a new aftermarket unit as it increases performance and gives a sporty exhaust note.
We are not sure whether the engine has any updates as it is powered by 197.5 cc single cylinder engine with fuel injected produces 20.73 PS at 9,000 rpm and 18.1 Nm at 7,000 rpm. This engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The carb variant puts slightly less power output of 20.23 PS while the torque output is the same for both.
The total cost and time took for the modifications are not yet revealed. One of the highlights of Apache RTR 200 4V is its design theme with sleek looking headlamps with integrated DRLs. The rear gets LED tail lamps and the handlebar is a single piece unit with a fully digital instrument cluster with lots of information.
