@TVS Apache RTR 200 4V FI
TVS Motor had launched TVS Apache RTR 200 4V in carburetor and fuel injection (FI) versions in January 2016. The deliveries of the carburetted version commenced soon after launch but the fuel injection (FI) version kept on postponing.
TVS dealers are unofficially started accepting booking for the fuel injection -FI version but officially it is expected to start in mid – March /April 2017. TVS Motors will commence deliveries of the fuel injection -FI & ABS variants towards the end of December. But now delayed until Mid- March / April 2017.
The high demand for TVS Apache RTR 200 4V in export markets is the prime reason for the delay. The ABS+FI variant for exporting only they produce, TVS is not able to meet the demand in the Indian market. According to reports, TVS Motors will launch Fi model when they increase production. And also they are looking to increase the production.
