Recently Asked User Questions

Q. Which one is best in milege apache rtr 160 or 160 4v
  • The older generation, that is the TVS Apache RTR 160 delivers better fuel efficiency than the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V. The reason being the number of valves in the newer one. The more the valves the more fuel is burnt,delivering better compression ratio and hence increasing the power output (better performance).
  • Apache RTR 160 comes equipped with 2 valve engine that is the fuel inlet is done by 2 valves which generates lesser power and torque figures. On the other hand RTR 4v comes with 4 valve engine that produces highest power and torque in 150-160 cc segment and hence mileage gets bit lowered in the 4v version
  • Buying RTR160 old model will not be a wise decision as there are already updated version available in the market. The new version of RTR 160 which is RTR 160 4v is better than the old one has claimed by the company. I am an owner of RTR 160 old version as per my experience except mileage issue and vibration issue this bike is an excellent machine.

Q. Between Apache RTR 160 and 160 4v which model I should select I want mileage of minimum 40+. Some people are telling that 160 4v create problems like gear stucking, exhaust heating, engine heating etc and telling that 4v will give milage 30-35 max. Please give me suitable advice.
  • If you want to spend more than 1 lakh go with R15,fz,pulsar 220,dont purchase apache because spare parts also 2 much cost and every year i spent 6 to 8k for repair worst bike starting 1 to 2 yrs it will be normal after that it starts repairs
  • Even in sierra leone there is no spare parts and the available ones are so expensive. Worse bike in the market
  • For mileage go for 160, 160 4v won't give you more mileage than normal 160

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.
  • 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.
  • Both bikes are best at their own places but vibration issue is still there in RTR 160 whereas 4V is smoother to ride. So 4V is the pick
