You’ll now have to pay up to Rs 3,000 more for your favourite Apache motorcycle

 TVS Apache RTR 160, RTR 200 4V, And RR 310 Price Hiked For 2021

The year 2021 seems to be starting on a sour note with two-wheeler manufacturers announcing price hikes across their product portfolio. It started with Hero, followed by KTM and Honda, and now, TVS. The prices of two-wheelers is expected to keep rising from here on to partially offset the rising commodity costs of steel, aluminium, plastics, and precious metals. 

Having said that, TVS is one of the few manufactures that prices its products quite reasonably despite offering a lot more features than competitors. So a price hike varying from Rs 1,520 to Rs 3,000 shouldn't pinch most enthusiasts since you’re getting your money’s worth.

The first price hike, and the steepest one, belongs to the BS6 Apache RR 310 which saw its biggest update with the BS6 transition. The update brought with it power modes, a full-colour TFT display and most important of all, reduced vibes. Despite the surge in price, the BS6 RR 310 still manages to undercut the BS6 KTM RC 390 by almost Rs 12,700, which makes it one of the best value-for-money propositions in its segment.

One of the biggest surprises last year was the launch of the 2021 RTR 200 which not only features ride modes but also an adjustable front suspension. All for a price of Rs 1.31 lakh (ex-showroom Delhi), just Rs 1,000 more expensive than the previous-gen dual-channel ABS variant. It’s no surprise then that TVS decided to add Rs 2,020 to the price tag. 

The brand will soon update the Apache RTR 160 4V with SmartXonnect which will enable riders to access race telemetry, lean angle mode, turn-by-turn navigation and call/SMS alerts via a dedicated info/control switch on the left-hand-side switchgear. A price hike of Rs 1,770 should reduce the gap between the current model and the 2021 version.
