TVS Apache RTR 160 4V

Bike India - - OUR BIKES - — Anosh Khumbatta

The all-new TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been my daily ride to and from of­fice for the past month or so. The bike han­dles Pune’s traf­fic ex­tremely well, helped along by that su­per-ag­ile chas­sis and sharp steer­ing. I quite like the for­ward-canted rid­ing po­si­tion that adds an air of ag­gres­sive­ness to the ride and the smooth en­gine is a joy to rev out at those traf­fic-light drag races. The bright red with white colour scheme un­fail­ingly attracts glances and ques­tions and the bike seems sturdy and well-built so far.

One thing that both­ers me to no end, though, are the shabby rub­ber boots that are meant to con­ceal the joint of the mir­ror and stalk, but sev­eral times a week these slide down on to the stalk and need to be put back in their place. So far I am ex­tremely happy with my new long-ter­mer, and am look­ing for­ward to see­ing what the com­ing months will bring.
