TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Latest Updates

TVS hasn’t updated the Apache RTR 160 4V for a while now, but the 2020 model has been spotted, giving us a closer look at what we can expect from the upcoming motorcycle. Apart from some small cosmetic tweaks, the 2020 RTR 160 4V is expected to get a BS6-compliant engine. In its current state of tune, this motor makes 16.8PS of power and 14.8Nm of torque, but we expect it could have a slightly different output in the upcoming bike.

In terms of rivals, it goes up against the new Suzuki Gixxer and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160.

Q. Confused between Apache RTR 160 4V and Honda CB Hornet 160R, give suggestions regarding following mileage, maintenance longevity.
  • Go for hornet ..terms of mileage it's good if you ride in sensible way..it's very low in maintenance and running cost is much lower if compared to rtr 1604v... Honda engines are much smoother and long lasting
  • Regarding Apache and Hornet my always stood answer is Honda CB hornet....but in this case you should wait for sometime because Honda is launching CB hornet bs 6 which is quite far better than bs 4
  • Maintenance wise and quality I would suggest the Honda CB Hornet, if you would wait few more months the Apache 160 4v facelift will be released and then you can decide.

    Hello I have purchased tvs apache rtr 160 4v fi 3 moths back and i am writing this review after riding the bike around 2500 kms.1. Buying experience 1.Its good i rate 2/5. During the sales tvs company claims 60 kmpl is the mileage and average mileage is around 50 .But you hardly get 35-40 mileage which could be worst if you are expecting mileage and a daily commuter better don’t buy if not if have to spend a lot only on filling the petrol 2.Riding experience 1.Its good i rate 4/5 3.Details about looks, performance etc.1.Looks : it has a great look which has convinced me to buy this bike. 2.Performance is moderate on the performance of this bike . It has a great engine power but worst mileage. I hardly get 35-40 mileage which is most worst part of this bike. 4. Servicing and maintenance.During the sales they don’t mention on the servicing and maintenance part but this bike has to be filled with a special synthetic oil which costs around 700 per filling which is double the cost of general oil . 5.Pros and cons 1.Pros : good performance in terms of engine power 2.Cons : worst mileage hardly 35 kmpl and high maintenance than a general bikes in this segment.

    As per company It's a race machine, but for me it's a race machine to run towards service center again and again.issues- It's heats up too much, Gear Problem, Gear Free Problem, starting problem, Headlight flicking problem, and yes- it sounds like a Tractor; even worse than that. I don't know how TVS says- it is best in class bike. According to me- it's a heat machine. For which neither the Dealer(TVS DHAMIJA, Sahibabad) nor the Twitter helpline and nor the consumer helpline 1800-258-7555 can resolve the issue, they just push again and again to you to visit service center not bothering that a person who have invested 1.04 lacs on purchasing your bike does have to work in order to pay the EMI's.

    Worst make and parts like clutch cable get broken often while driving no safety. Front disk brake is noisy and it has increased after service. No spare parts are available in tvs service centre my bike self start switch is not working and the service centre said that the part is not available from company side.They are just ignoring me. Please avoid buying this bike totally disappointing.

    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.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Highlights

In the midst of growing competition from 160cc streetfighters, TVS needed a modern performance commuter that can hold its own. For this, the Hosur-based bikemaker introduced a smaller version of the RTR 200, called the Apache RTR 160 4V. It has a similar design language as its elder brother and comes with a slightly more comfortable single-piece handlebar. Thanks to the refined engine, slick gearbox and potent underpinnings, the RTR 160 4V is one of the most versatile 160cc nakeds one can buy. In order to offer customers more flexibility, TVS offers the motorcycle both in carb and FI variants. Both bikes get ABS as standard, and the carburetted version gets a rear drum brake as an option too. Price starts from Rs 89,851 for the base ABS variant. The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V competes with the Yamaha FZ-S Version 3.0, Suzuki Gixxer, Bajaj Pulsar NS160 and Honda CB Hornet 160R.

Apache RTR 160 4V Specifications

TVS is offering the new Apache RTR 160 4V with two engine options - EFI and Carbureted. The fuel-injected version of the 159.7cc, oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine with 4-valves produces a segment-leading power output of 16.8PS. The carb version, on the other hand, puts out 16.4PS. Torque figures remain the same on both variants - 14.8Nm at 6500rpm. When compared to the older model, the new bike makes 1.4PS and 1.7Nm more. The Apache RTR 160 uses the same split cradle frame as the RTR 200. The telescopic front forks and the rear monoshock unit were developed in partnership with the Japanese firm Showa. The fuel-injected version of the RTR 160 is brought to a halt by 270mm front and 200mm rear petal discs. The carb version, on the other hand, gets a 130mm drum unit at the rear. However, TVS is offering a rear disc brake as an optional accessory.

Apache RTR 160 4V Design and Features

The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V draws its design from its elder sibling, the Apache RTR 200 4V. Among the many components that are common between the two include the headlamp with LED DRLs, the all-digital instrument cluster, fuel tank, side panels and even the LED tail light. However, the RTR 160 4V makes do with a single-piece saddle and single-piece handlebar instead of the split seats and clip-on handlebars seen on the bigger bike. TVS has given ABS a miss for the time being too. That said, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V boasts of top notch quality and fit-finish.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Competitors

Suzuki Gixxer : The Gixxer’s engine and suspension have been developed under the watchful eyes of the same designers who also produced the Suzuki GSX-R series. This is a worthy city-based sporty 155cc bike with distinct design and enviable refinement.

Yamaha FZ V2.0: The V2.0 delivers in style, build quality, refinement and handling. It is also the only bike in the segment to get fuel injection, but that has also upped its price out of this league. It is a strong performer and a proper upgrade to the previous version.

Bajaj Pulsar NS 160: The Pulsar NS 160 ticks all the right boxes when it comes to style, performance, ride and handling, save for refinement. The new NS 160 is a worthy contender and makes a strong case for itself in this highly competitive 160cc segment.

Honda X-Blade: The X-Blade is Honda’s third product in the 160cc category and sits in between the Unicorn 160 and the Hornet 160R. Its long list of features give it plenty of oomph factor. But we are still to test it to understand its positioning between the commuter-friendly Unicorn 160 and the sporty Hornet 160R.

ZigSays

If a bike has to survive in the cut-throat 160cc two-wheeler segment, it needs to be competitively priced and pack enough performance to keep riders happy. Thankfully, the Apache RTR 160 4V delivers well on both fronts with class leading features and a price tag that starts at Rs 81,490 (ex-showroom for carb, single-disc variant). However, it doesn’t feel as confident under hard braking as the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 or the Honda Hornet. That said, the Apache RTR 160 4V is not only the most refined RTR we have ridden till date but also one of the most refined 160cc motorcycles to be ever produced in India.
