Recently Asked User Questions

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
  • 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. 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

    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.

    It's very powerful bike in 160cc class in naked street bikes,but it will be good if they offer dual channel abs as optional and also 6th gear is little draw back for such a nice machine hope they add these features in next upgrade, And over all this bike is a perfect monster on streets with 16.1ps and best in class 16.4nm torque that can be very easy to flip in city edge to edge and great performance on highway tooGreat bike for its price point

    I have used more than one year,Pick up and speed is high compared to other 160 segment bikes.And this weight also high it helps to take more than 115-125 speed without shaking in ride.Look is better semi sporty look. Maintenance cost also normal. While riding i felt like a horse rider and its brakes is normal.

    Bought it 1month ago. As it is in running-in period I haven"t pushed it hard( maximum 5-6k RPM and 60-65kmph) good acceleration(pick-up) mileage right now is approx 40-43kmpl and engine is refined, no harsh vibration only slight buzz at around 6k RPM and engine heats a bit in traffic but as it is a new engine it"s acceptable. Seating comfort is good for rider and pillion, my mother had no issues, braking is firm on front brake a bit progressive on rear it will get better after 300-400km, tires provide good grip. A fun to ride machine tvs did a good job.
