TVS Apache RTR 160 4V
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.
