The entry-level motorcycle in the Apache series finally receives the comprehensive update it deserved.

TVS has launched its new 2018 Apache RTR 160 4V and the bike costs Rs 81,490 (ex-showroom,
Delhi). There are a number of styling and mechanical changes on the updated bike. Mechanically,
there’s a new frame and reworked engine, brakes and suspension. You can buy the bike in three
different versions – carb with front disc (Rs 81,490), carb with front and rear disc (Rs 84,490) and
fuel-injected with front and rear disc (Rs 89,990 all prices, ex-showroom, Delhi).

The overall styling of the bike is heavily inspired from the RTR 200. Both bikes feature a similar tank,
headlight, tail-light, instrumentation and, even the turn indicators resemble each other. There’s
even a similar ‘shotgun’ exhaust design, a fully digital instrument console and an LED tail-light, that
are on the RTR 200. The centre panel is different though and the bike also rides on differently
designed alloy wheels. You can buy it in three colours – Racing Red, Metallic Blue and Knight Black.

The engine is a 159.7cc, four-valve, air-cooled engine that makes 16.8hp on the fuel-injected model
(16.5hp on the carburettor model) and 14.8Nm of torque (on both models). Power is sent via a 5-
speed gearbox. The RTR 160 also features a conventional handlebar so that the rider is more
comfortable. It’s also fitted with a single-piece seat.
