TVS Apache RTR 160 4V

Bike India - - IGNITION -

AF­TER THRILLING RIDERS WITH THE NEW Apache RR 310, TVS Mo­tor Com­pany have launched an all-new ver­sion of their small­est Apache, the RTR 160, called the RTR 160 4V. Styled in a man­ner sim­i­lar to the Apache RTR 200 4V, the 160 bor­rows a lot more than just styling from its el­der sib­ling. The front end, fuel tank, mid-sec­tion, ex­haust, and the rear sus­pen­sion are all parts that we have seen on the big­ger Apache, al­though they have been mod­i­fied slightly to give the 160 a new look.

The 159.7-cc sin­gle-cylinder en­gine fea­tures an oil-cooler and en­hanced out­put. It pro­duces 16.8 PS and 14.8 Nm in the fuel-in­jected ver­sion and 16.5 PS in the car­bu­ret­ted one. This en­gine is mated to a five-speed gear­box. An­other ma­jor change is the in­tro­duc­tion of a rear monoshock sus­pen­sion. The bike has also changed in terms of ride qual­ity and han­dling thanks to the re­vised frame and sus­pen­sion. You can read more about it in our first ride re­port on page 76.
