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
  • For mileage go for 160, 160 4v won't give you more mileage than normal 160
  • You should prefer for Apache 160 4v

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. Which is the better option for family bike between Honda unicorn and TV's Apache 160?
  • Among the two, if you are looking for a calm and comfortable bike with a reliable and refined engine, then the Honda Unicorn would be a good option. Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 150cc commuter and with the BS6 update, the Unicorn now gets a larger 163cc fuel-injected, air-cooled engine. With the old-school styling, it still remains a well-rounded motorcycle. On the other hand, if you are looking for sporty motorcycle with bits of modern elements, then you may opt for the TVS Apache RTR 160. Given the RTR 160 2V BS6’s low pricing, it is a viable and relevant stepping stone into the 160cc segment. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Honda Unicorn vs TVS Apache RTR 160
