In early October, TVS updated its popular RTR 160 4V with a new LED headlamp and some additional features. It was only a matter of time before the same headlamp made it to the RTR 200 4V, and this has now happened.
RTR 200 4V gets same new LED headlamp as RTR 160 4V
No other changes to the motorcycle
Comes with a small increase in price
The new LED headlamp features a less polarising DRL design, with the quizzical eyebrow LEDs being replaced by a new LED strip that runs across the centre of the headlamp
The rest of the motorcycle continues as before, with the 197.75cc, four-valve, air- and oil-cooled motor producing 20.82hp at 9,000rpm and a peak torque figure of 17.25Nm at 7,800rpm. The RTR 200 4V comes with numerous segment-first features, including three riding modes, preload adjustability for the front fork, Bluetooth connectivity and adjustable hand levers.
The bike continues to be available in two variants – single-channel and dual-channel ABS. The same three colours are available, namely Gloss Black, Matte Blue and Pearl White. The base model is priced at Rs 1,33,840 while the top model costs Rs 1,38,890 (all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi). This presents a small price hike of roughly Rs 800 per model over the outgoing version.
