Latest On TVS Apache RTR 160

TVS Motor Company launched the Apache RTR 160 2V Race Edition in the country in April 2018. The motorcycle is essentially the same as the standard model but features an exclusive colour scheme to differentiate from the regular version. Draped in white colour with red stripes, the livery is elegantly done. There’s a premium TVS logo on the fuel tank, and the engine cowl sports TVS Racing stickers as well. Even the black alloy wheels get TVS Racing rim stickers for a sporty appeal. There are two variants in the Race edition: rear disc and rear drum. The former costs Rs 82,089 while the latter will set you back by 79,760, both ex-showroom Delhi. Mechanically, the Race edition is the same as the standard model. The Race edition commands a premium of Rs 1000 over the regular version.

The motorcycle continues to use the 159.7cc air-cooled motor from the normal variant. Pairing with a 5-speed transmission, the engine is good for 15.12PS at 8000rpm and 13.03Nm at 6500rpm. Chief rivals for the motorcycle include the Bajaj Pulsar 150 Black Pack Edition and Honda X-Blade.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Highlights

Design and Features

TVS conceived the Apache RTR 160 to compete with the popular Pulsar 150 from Bajaj. Understandably, the design language maintains a fine balance of sporty appeal and traditional looks, with the bikini fairing on the headlamp, tank extensions, engine cowl and a comfortable single piece seat. TVS claims that the tank cowl helps in reducing the engine heat by 10 degree celsius. The halogen headlamp features LED DRLs, and the tail light is LED as well. Instrumentation is a sporty combination of analogue tacho and a digital inset which displays the speedometer, dual trip meters, odometer, clock and a fuel gauge. It also gets a carbon-fibre finish that exudes sportiness.


Powering the Apache RTR 160 is a 159.7cc single cylinder air-cooled oversquare engine that sits inside a double cradle Synchro Stiff double cradle frame. Working in conjunction with a 5-speed transmission, the engine produces 15.12PS of power at 8000rpm and 13.03Nm of peak torque at 6500rpm. Claimed top speed stands at 110kmph. The motorcycle rides on telescopic front forks and twin Monotube Inverted Gas-filled shock absorbers (MIG) at the rear. TVS offers a front 270mm petal disc as standard while the rear gets an option of either a 130mm drum or a 200mm petal disc. However, there is no CBS nor ABS available even as an option. The 17-inch alloy wheels are wrapped with 90-section front and a 110-section rear TVS Remora tubeless tyres. The fuel tank can take up 12 litres of juice and the motorcycle tips the scales at 137kg, kerb. The seat is 790mm above ground and the bike’s ground clearance is 165mm.


Bajaj Pulsar 150: Compared to the Apache RTR 160’s engine, the Pulsar 150’s 149cc DTS-i engine makes 1.12PS less but the torque is slightly higher by 0.37Nm. The Pulsar also features a larger, 15-litre fuel tank for better riding range. However, Bajaj does not offer the Pulsar 150 with a rear disc even as an option. It makes do with a 130mm drum unit at the rear. A front 240mm disc is standard, which is 30mm smaller than the Apache’s front petal disc. The Pulsar offers better value for money as it is around Rs 4,600 less expensive than the drum variant of the RTR 160.

Honda X-Blade: The Honda X-Blade has a more aggressive design, and also gets a full-LED headlamp. However, its 162.71cc HET engine makes 1PS less power, but 0.87Nm more torque than the Apache. The X-Blade also offers a full-digital instrumentation and a slightly larger flyscreen for better aerodynamics. The Honda weighs 3kg more than the Apache, and does not get a rear disc brake. When it comes to pricing, both are similarly priced, with the Honda being just around Rs 290 cheaper.


The TVS Apache RTR 160 is an ideal buy for those who are looking for a sporty yet practical commuter. The power-biased motor offers brisk acceleration and the motorcycle is quite flickable, thanks to the 137kg kerb weight. Starting at an ex-showroom price of Rs 78,760, the motorcycle does seem a little pricey, especially considering the fact that a proper streetfighter like the Suzuki Gixxer actually costs around Rs 1700 less than the Apache while offering better looks, dynamics and features.
