    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.
