The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 is also the first motorcycle in its class to be equipped with advanced ‘A-RT Slipper Clutch', a race-derived technology.
TVS claims the new advanced Slipper Clutch technology elevates the motorcycle's performance, with 22 percent decrease in clutch force for quicker upshifts, allowing the rider to achieve better lap times.
The technology also strives to ensure rider safety in high-speed downshifts, avoids wheel-hopping while cornering, and enhances vehicle stability with the back-balance torque limiter effect.
The A-RT slipper clutch also ensures sharp and precise gear shifts with minimal effort.
Mechanically, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 continues to draw power from the 197.75cc single-cylinder engine which produces 20bhp (carb)/ 21bhp (EFI) @ 8,500rpm and 18.1Nm of torque @ 7,000rpm.
The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox.
