TVS unveils track-only Apache RR 200 for One Make Championship
TVS Motor Company has taken the wraps off its Apache RR 200 motorbike, which is exclusively built for budding riders of the new rookie category in the TVS One Make Championship. The tournament for the mentioned category will start on August 14 at MMRT, Chennai. The track-only bike is based on the Apache RTR 200 4V but sheds its street-legal hardware. Here's our roundup.
It offers alloy wheels and racing-inspired bodywork
The TVS Apache RR 200 features a low-drag, fully-faired body with 'TVS Racing' livery, a windscreen for better aerodynamics, a flat-type rider-only seat, and an upswept chrome exhaust. It rides on lightweight 5-spoke alloy wheels wrapped in special tires from TVS Eurogrip. When compared to the RTR 200 4V model, it loses out on the headlamp, taillight, turn indicators, and rear-view mirrors.
The vehicle runs on 197.8cc engine
The TVS Apache RR 200 is fueled by a 197.8cc, 4-stroke, air-cooled engine that comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The power output, however, is unknown at the moment. For reference, the Apache RTR 200 4V generates 20.5hp of power and 17.25Nm of peak torque.
Disc brakes are offered for rider's safety
For the rider's safety on the tracks, the TVS Apache RR 200 is equipped with Brembo radial calipers with pedal discs. It is unclear if the bike gets ABS or not. The suspension duties on the racing bike are taken care of by an adjustable setup, which comprises inverted forks on the front side and a mono-shock unit on the rear end.
