Bite Test: 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V

With so many 150-250cc Naked Bike categories in developing countries. It can be tough to be a competitive player, especially if the motorcycle has been in the market for a while.

This is the case of the TVS Apache RTR 200, this bike has been on the market since 2016! Since then, the RTR 200 went through incremental updates like different color combinations, suspension refinement, and most of all, transitioning from carburetor to fuel injection.

TVS is by far one of the largest motorcycle manufacturers in India and the current builder of the entry-level BMW G 310 series!

As the flagship naked bike in the TVS brand below the recently released Apache RR310 (I refer to it as the BMW G 310 RR, lol) budget-sport bike. This is one of TVS’ biggest guns!

But will it be enough? Is the bike long on its tooth? Is it in desperate need of an update? Let me ride this bike to find out.
