TVS Motor Company has just launched the Apache 200 4V, the flagship bike of the Hosur-based two-wheeler manufacturer. The TVS Apache 200 4V is the top-of-the-line model in the Apache series. It will be available in two basic variants - carburetted and fuel-injected, as well as with two different tyre options - with TVS tyres and with Pirelli tyres.
ABS will also be available as an option sometime in March 2016. It's got an all-new engine and TVS says the bike is designed with TVS Racing heritage and keeping the racing enthusiast as a part of the target consumer group. Here's a look at all you need to know about the new TVS Apache 200 4V.
The TVS Apache 200 4V is powered by a four-valve 198cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine which makes 20.2bhp power at 8,500rpm and 18.1Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. The 4V in the name stands for the four valves in the cylinder head. The engine gets a unique TVS-patented oil-cooled combustion chamber - which is essentially an oil jacket around the combustion chamber for the oil to aid in better and more effective cooling of the engine. The result is an engine which is 10 per cent cooler with this technology.
The piston also gets what's called Nano FriKs coating - a combination of nano particles, binder, solid lubricant and additives. This helps improve wear resistance and make it less prone to wear and tear of the piston and cylinder walls, leading to better engine life and smoother operation. The combustion chamber is one of the major contributors of engine noise and this coating helps greatly reduce engine noise and harshness.
2. Fuelling - Carburetted and Fuel Injected
The Apache 200 4V will be available in two different versions - carburetted and fuel-injected. The engines on both variants are the same, and make the same torque and near identical power. The carburetted Apache 200 4V makes 20.2bhp at 7,000rpm while the fuel-injected one makes 20.7bhp at 8,500rpm. Top speed for the carburetted bike is a claimed 127km/h, and for the fuel-injected one is 129km/h.

4. Chassis and Suspension
TVS says the Apache 200 4V has been designed and made keeping in mind the expectations of the target customer in mind. So, along with performance and aggressive design, the 200 4V also gets what is described as "emotive racing ergonomics". Marketing spiel apart, what we can vouch for is that the Apache 200 4V actually has very friendly ergonomics and plenty of room in the saddle to move around as you attack corners after corners at high speed. For most of us who rode the bike for the first time, the bike feels very familiar and takes practically no time to get used to.
