TVS Motor Company today launched the new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V updated with Bluetooth-enabled SmartXonnect mobile application tech. TVS say that the motorcycle will come equipped with a connected cluster and a gold finish racing chain. The Bluetooth-enabled TVS SmartXonnect of TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is paired with the TVS Connect App, which is available on Google Play Store and iOS App store. The application hosts multiple features including Navigation, Race Telemetry, Tour Mode, Lean Angle Mode, Crash Alert, and Call/SMS notification.
TVS SmartXonnect features like Lean Angle Mode, Race Telemetry and Crash Alert will be unique to this bike. While the Lean Angle Mode uses a gyroscopic sensor on the phone to record the rider’s lean angle through the corners while displaying it on the cluster, the Race Telemetry records and summarises essential data at the end of every race or ride.
Crash Alert System is a key safety feature that is triggered when the bike senses a fall. The system enters crash alert mode and within 180 seconds notifies the rider’s emergency contacts with the location of the fall.
TVS Apache RTR 200 4V is powered by a 197.75cc single-cylinder engine which makes 20 hp (Carb) at 8500 rpm and 18.1 Nm of torque at 7000 rpm and is paired with a five-speed gearbox.
Priced at Rs 1,14,345 (Ex-showroom Delhi), the Apache RTR 200 4V (carburetor with dual-channel ABS) will be available in two colour options black and white across the country starting October 2019.
