Ethanol Powered TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 Launched.


TVS Motor Company is a reputed manufacturer of two-wheelers and three-wheelers in the world. The company recently launched and made a benchmark in the business by sending off India’s most memorable Ethanol based cruiser – Apache RTR 200 Fi E100.

Apache RTR 200 Fi E100- 

The TVS Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 is India’s first-ethanol-powered motorcycle. This is TVS’s initial move towards presenting a cleaner and greater climate well-disposed method of transport. Ethanol is an inexhaustible biofuel gotten by the maturation of yields like sugarcane and corn. The E100 toward the finish of a name that appears to continue everlastingly means ‘ethanol 100’. This Apache runs on 100% ethanol. It can be that as it may, runs on E80 – a mix of 80% ethanol and 20 percent petroleum. These are the main two sorts of fuel that can control this bicycle and it can’t run on ordinary petroleum.

The yields expected to deliver ethanol are filled in huge amounts in India, so creating ethanol checks out for a country that spends over Rs 7 lakh crore on raw petroleum and oil-based commodity imports. Ethanol is likewise a non-harmful fuel with 35% oxygen content which diminishes carbon monoxide discharges.

Changes for RTR 200- 

The Apache RTR 200 Fi E100 in India will be accessible in Maharashtra, Karnataka, and Uttar Pradesh, you can’t simply stroll into a display area and buy the bicycle. This is on the grounds that ethanol isn’t industrially accessible, right now. The public authority is yet to present ethanol-administering stations; and at this point, plans are in the beginning stage.

While the Association Transport Chairman, Nitin Gadkari, is wagering enthusiastically about ethanol as a future fuel there’s not a single plainly characterized guide to be found. Starting today, we know nothing about when, where and the number of fuel stations will be set up.

Changes in the Engine- 

There have been a couple of changes that the bicycle can run on ethanol. A couple of elastic and plastic pieces likewise have been moved up to details that can oppose ethanol’s destructive nature.  These incorporate a twin port, twin-splash fuel-infusion framework, This bike likewise gets only a solitary channel ABS, against the double channel framework that is accessible on the petroleum models.

Excepting these changes (and the dazzling green stripe along the lower part of the gas tank), there’s nothing else that separates the Apache E100 from the remainder of the old Apache group. This implies it has a similar body board, scaled-down visor, headlamps, tail-light, et al. The 197.75cc, oil-cooled, four-valve motor creates a similar power (21hp at 8,500 rpm) and force (18.1Nm of force at 7,000 rpm) as the fuel-infused petroleum Apache.

Key features of RTR 200- 

The engine quality is the same and the gears are 5. All the changes are the same as the old bike. But the real change is the graphic changing to green. The seat look is also changed. Tires are also the same as 13/70 at the rear and 90/70 at the front tubeless tire. The length of this bike is near around 2835 mm and the width is around 790 mm. The height of this bike is 1050 mm from the ground. The ground clearance is 180 mm and the weight of this bike is 275 kg. This bike comes with a 12-liter petrol tank.
