TVS launches Victor, Apache RTR200

TVS Motors relaunched its Victor and introduced the Apache RTR 200 on Wednesday. The TVS Victor had initially been launched in 2002, but was withdrawn a few years later.

“We have been at the forefront in bringing new and relevant technology to our customers,” said Venu Srinivasan, chairman, TVS Motor Company, at the event. “TVS Motors is defined by its state of the art engineering, excellence in technology and superior quality of products. Our commitment to our customers is our primary focus.”

According to him, the latest launch is yet another reiteration of the TVS promise, to deliver high quality, customer centric products. K.N. Radhakrishnan, president and CEO, TVS Motors, said the company was constantly evolving and offering technologically superior and youthful products.

The two new products complement its existing product portfolio and have a strong potential for growth in their respective segments, he added. “We have no doubt that both these motorcycles will be well accepted by our customers and will further spur the sales momentum that we have accrued over the last year,” added Radhakrishnan.

The new TVS Victor is powered by a 110 cc Eco-thrust engine, which produces 9.5 bhp at 8,000 rpm and 9.4 Nm of torque at 6,000 rpm. The bike has a mileage of 76 km to a litre under standard test conditions.

The Apache RTR 200 4V is the first 200cc bike from the TVS stable. The bike features LED daytime running lamps and tail lamps, full LED instrument cluster and has telescopic front suspension and mono-suspension at the rear.
