TVS Introduces Bluetooth Connectivity in TVS Apache RTR 200 4V
TVS has introduced Bluetooth connectivity in the Apache RTR 200 4V making it Rs. 3000 costlier than the standard version with dual-channel ABS. The motorcycle now costs Rs. 1.14Lakhs (ex-showroom) and has no changes done on the body.
The cluster looks identical to the one available on the current model but features a revised layout within the display. The new display can pair to the smartphone through the TVS Connect application available on Google Play Store and iOS App Store. The new cluster has several new features like navigation, race telemetry, tour mode, lean angle mode, crash alert, and call and SMS notification.
Lean angle mode in the new Apache uses the phone’s gyroscope sensor to record the rider’s lean angle through the corners and displays it on the cluster. Race telemetry is meant for recording and summarizing essential data at the end of every ride. But more importantly, the crash alert feature comes into action when the application senses a fall. It is programmed in such a way that it automatically sends the location of driver to rider’s emergency numbers. It is designed to act within 180 seconds of falling sensation making it a useful and powerful feature in the new TVS Apache RTR 200 4V.
Apart from these features, the new Apache also features a golden colour chain. The motorcycle still sports a BS4-compliant engine that churns out 20.5hp carbureted and 18.1Nm of torque.
