    Q. What's changed in Apache BS6 and when it will be launched?
    • The power and torque have been reduced in the BS 6 version. The look has been facelifted and gives more premium feel to the machine. Headlight is upgraded from halogen to full LED which has better luminance. There is no carburetor variant in BS6 as Fi is kept standard. Price for dual disc variant has got up by around 8000. Exhaust has been made more crispier which resembles to KTM. The electric start mechanism has improved, you hear almost no motor noise on pressing the start button.The engine is more tuned to race and RTFi (race tuned fuel injection) has been added. Overall BS6 variant is 30-40% better
    • BsVI models launched after April ,2020. Changes like carburettor get replace by fuel injector catalic converter to reduce smoke . Abs is mandatory for all bikes.I have this model already.
    • How you got this news? Are you saying for 160 2v?

    Q. Apache RTR 160 4V or Apache RTR 160, which is best?
    • If you want to experience signature Apache wild and beast engine, go for Apache 160 (engine vibrations gives a raw feel to rider).If you want a more refined engine like that of Yamaha and Honda, go for 160 4v. There is not any significant difference in mileage.
    • Our suggestion would be to go for the TVS Apache 160 4V because It has better safety features and more power with a refined engine. But to know more about this we suggest you take a test ride of the vehicle and then decide.

    • The 4v variant is better than the older version because it has all the new aesthetics of the 200 4v including the console which is superb and looks awesome than any other available 160cc displacement vehicle in our country.
