Reportedly, the price list presented by a few authorized TVS dealers consisting of the Apache 200 ABS was fake.
TVS clarified in a recent report that it is not going to launch the ABS version of the highly popular Apache 200. The TVS Apache 200 was rumored to be offered with ABS fitment in the coming days along with the news of official launch to be imminent. However, the report of the launch of ABS version being canceled shattered many hopes of the Apache fans.
According to the images uploaded on the internet, a TVS authorized dealer had a price list consisting details of the TVS Apache 200 with twin-channel ABS. The image of the price list did rounds on the internet publicly declaring the model has been officially launched by the company. The price tag of the Apache ABS version was shown as Rs. 1,08,899 (ex-showroom, Mumbai), according to the surfaced picture.
TVS claims that a few dealers conned customers by accepting bookings of the bike at aforementioned price. They said to the customers that the official launch is about to happen. Apparently, the dealers prepared a fake price list only to fetch more money from the customers.
Braking on the TVS Apache 200 is executed by petal discs on the front and rear. It carries a 197.95cc, single cylinder engine which comes in two configurations of carburetor and fuel injection. The motor produces 20.7 BHP of power at 9000 RPM and 18.1 Nm of torque at 7000 RPM while being mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The wheels are suspended by telescopic forks at the front and monoshock at the rear.
The TVS Apache 200 rivals the highly successful KTM Duke 200 and Bajaj Pulsar NS 200. The segment will be joined by a new entrant the Hero Xtreme 200. In the segment, only the Bajaj Pulsar NS 200 and the upcoming Hero Xtreme 200 offer single channel ABS.
