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. 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
  • I have buy 160 4v dual disc on cash 149,650 but not gave me special edition and sales man make bill of 139,650 after it i say him you make bill of 139,650 i have gave you cash 149650 he say it not includes insurance fees also mention the special edition and its price on insurance but i have not get special edition from showroom what the real price of 160 4v dual disc price in uttrakhand showroom

User Reviews of Comparison

  • Suzuki Gixxer
  • TVS Apache RTR 160
  • I have been owning this bike since 2015 and has done almost 66000kms on it. Since then I have been using this bike as my city commute and not just that, I even used to take it for some occasional highway rides as well. 1. Comfort This bike is one of the most comfortable in its segment. The riding posture of this bike is straight and handlebar is a bit on farther side but it's not uncomfortable at all. Suspension are very plush they absorbs almost every kind of bump or potholes. The seat doesn't have a great padding but again you can install the foam to seats afterwards. 2. Engine and Technology The bike which I am owning is the carburetted one as it is 2015 make while the current variant have the fuel injection. The bike has SUPER SMOOTH ENGINE which is good for generating 14.8BHP with 14NM power and torque figures respectively. This engine is good in low and mid rpm range while it goes upto 9.5k RPM but it is not that rev happy engine. At higher RPMs the vibrations will generate. 3.Fuel Efficiency The bike is a great mile muncher. It gives the mileage of around 53Kmpl at speeds around 65-70 KM/H while if you cruise at highway at speeds of around 85 KM/H the bike will give the mileage of around 47 KMPL while in city at 80-85 KMPH the bike gives mileage of around 42 KMPL. Since my bike is carburetted one the FI variant will surely give the better mileage than this. 4.Brakes The bike have the disc brakes at both the ends and as per the performance of the bike the brakes are decent. The provide enoungh stooping power with the MRF rubber at both ends. The tires provide the good amount of grip. It is also equipped with single channel ABS for panick braking situations. 5.Lighting The bike lacks on the lighting side. It is okay for the city rides but for highways you will have to install auxiliary lights for once sun goes down. It now comes with LED HEADLIGHT and LED REAR LIGHT. 6.Gearbox The 5 speed gearbox is not that smooth on other bikes but it will surely not cause problems to you. Tips to remember Never ever get 3 people on bike otherwise your rear suspension will be gone and you will then have lower ground clearance and which will result in scrapping of exhaust part of your bike at speed breakers and potholes.Keep a check on engine oil suspension leaks and air filter regularly in around 20 days If your rear tire is wearing more on one side then try it by replacing the brackets for swing arm at the chassis end.

  • Performance is brilliant...but the problem is in the gear shifting...it's really hard to change the gears as compared to the other 150cc bikes...you have to apply more pressure while changing the gear...that's the only issue that I face with the Suzuki Gixxer

  • RTR 160 is my second bike. First one was Pulsar 150 by Bajaj. Actually i was looking for the first model of Apache RTR, the yellow beauty but landed in next model RTR 160. To be true i was totally into RTR because of the advertisement, in which the two glowing eyes in the dark. Remembering those days, trying to do the same during our night rides. During the initial time, i was getting a vibration between 58 and 64 speed, but after the 3rd service the issue was all gone. Till date my best companion for roads and my solo trips. Iam not speed fan so do not know much about RTR performance over 80.

  • First pick for me when am looking for a bike!Am a fan of TVS as my father and brother have been using TVS bikes from long time..It got better braking and handling compared to Pulsars' or Hero bikes(My personal opinion though).Styling, Riding dynamics, performance everything makes this one a good bike among 150-160CC segments.I used it for city commute and highway rides as well, pretty satisfied with the bike in terms of mileage, performance and handling.

  • I have an amazing experience with apache RTR 160. I have done more than 1lacs and 36 thousand kilometers and mine is a 2009 model RTR. still I don"t face any knocking and any power loss in my bike while my daily commute includes 20-30kms of daily ride including off roads and some minor stunts as well... I"m getting a good mileage of 45-46 kmpl overall and after sales and service department of TVS deserves a salute, the parts are pocket friendly and have a very good quality, no issues in availability of parts and overall a very bike for those who want a good entry level bike which is pocket friendly and easy to maintain. great work and great machine by TVS.I am so happy with TVS that my first bike was RTR 160 in 2009, then I bought a RTR160 dual disc variant in 2013, then I bought RTR180 in 2017, and now RTR200 in 2018...

  • Best performimg bike ever-tvs apache rtr 160 offers impressive performance, Everyday practicality, And with prices starting at rs 1.08 lakh, Great value for money.The bike has a suspension setup that is quite adept at going around corners almost intuitively.With the 2021 model, Tvs also managed to shave off 2kg, And while it's not a difference you'll immediately notice, It does play a part.The only downside to the comfort is the ergonomics.
