These tyres offer lots of grip and an immediate difference can be seen in the braking department. It works well provided you ease off the clutch in a progressive manner and do not dump it. Yes, the fuel injected engine feels much more refined and the power band now grows wider too. However, unless you’re timing it on a Vbox, you’ll barely feel the difference. Overall I'm happy. The reworked fuel-injection tuning as well as significantly reduced friction inside the cylinder and gearbox, too, play a part in improving efficiency.

The upcoming 2020 TVS Apache 200 4V will more likely get a new LED headlamp setup and an updated BS6 compliant engine. The BS6 compliant model of the RTR 200 gets new graphics on the fuel tank and the body and we quite like the carbon-fibre finish with the red borders. With the latest hike in prices, the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V BS6 now costs Rs 1.25 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), which makes it Rs 11,000 dearer than its BS4 predecessor. The engine feels at ease at 100kmph in fifth gear, sitting at an easy 7000rpm. The torque has gone down by 1.3Nm at 16.8Nm but power remains the same. TVS surprised us all by unexpectedly launching BS6-compliant versions of its Apache RTR 160 4V and RTR 200 4V models, but the engines aren’t the only areas that have changed. What will certainly take some getting used to, though, are the DRLs that look like raised eyebrows. Throw it around twisties and the RTR 200 willingly switches from leaning onto one side to the other in an enthusiasm filled manner. We test its competency. That said, the gear ratios are well-spaced. 1.24 lakh, It gets a new LED headlamp and updated graphics. The Apache RTR 200 4V is powered by 198cc BS6 engine which develops a power of 20.2 bhp and a torque of 16.8 Nm. The Apache RTR 200 4V uses the same body panels and seat as before. Some manufacturers threw in new features to justify the large jump in prices. So, at the upper end of the rev range, you have more juice and it doesn't run out of steam even if you want to overtake at 100 kmph plus speeds. The first-in-segment feature aims to alleviate the hassles of riding in slow paced traffic. The halogen headlamp is replaced with a new LED unit and it is neatly integrated into a new ‘claw’ positioned cluster, as TVS likes to call. So to answer the burning question: the drop in performance does not make much of a difference in the real world and the only time you would notice it is during highway runs. Some of you might even mistake it for a higher capacity engine thanks to this meaty and likeable tune from the exhaust. The headlamp, it is completely new and it is a full LED unit. Apart from the new headlamp, there isn't much to differentiate the BS6 bike from the BS4 motorcycle.

It’s recommended not to rely on this navigation system unless you wish you lose your way and wander around.

As for the value for money (VFM) tag, we feel that despite the price hike, the RTR 200 still offers a lot more than other motorcycles in the 200cc segment and that too at a competitive price. For 2020, TVS has upgraded the RTR 200 4V with BS6 trickery, a new Bluetooth-enabled instrument console, a new headlamp cluster with LED unit, minor styling tweaks and a new feature call GTT - Glide Through Traffic. The top rivals are Bajaj Pulsar 220 F (price is Rs 1.23 Lakh ex-showroom Pondicherry) and KTM 200 Duke (price is Rs 1.76 Lakh ex-showroom Pondicherry). Both these factors take a toll on the acceleration runs. Thankfully the BS6 gods have heard our plea and the RTR 200 still sounds great, we must say! While the app shows details such as lean angle and G-forces, the instrument console displays direction for navigation and caller ID. TVS, on the other hand, took this opportunity to give most of its motorcycles a generational update.
