TVS Motor Company, a leading manufacturer of two-wheelers and three-wheelers globally, today rolled out the new generation of the TVS Apache RTR 200 4V. Termed as Race Edition 2.0, the new Apache RTR 200 4V gets the advanced ‘Anti-Reverse Torque (A-RT) Slipper Clutch’ technology. The Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 will also sport new racing-inspired graphics, lending the motorcycle a dynamic and aggressive stance.  The series now boasts of a fly-screen for enhanced aerodynamics.

The TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0, is the first motorcycle in its class to be equipped with the advanced ‘A-RT Slipper Clutch’, a race-derived technology which is a testimony to the racing DNA of the RTR 200 4V engine.  The ‘A-RT Slipper Clutch’ technology, accentuates the motorcycle’s performance, with 22% reduction in clutch force for quicker upshifts, enabling the rider to achieve better lap times.  The technology also aims at ensuring rider safety in highspeed downshifts, avoids wheel-hopping while cornering, and improves vehicle stability with the back-balance torque limiter effect. With exciting racing performance on offer, the introduction of the Slipper Clutch in TVS Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0, also promises sharp and precise gear shifts with minimal effort.
