Editor's View of TVS Apache RTR 160

  • Upside

    Fuel-injected motor makes more power, good handling, affordable pricing for a 160cc motorcycle.

  • Downside

    Dated design, lacks features, motor lacks refinement.

  • Our Verdict

    While TVS has done well in reviving the Apache RTR 160 2V with a fuel-injected motor, it could have done better by offering it a new bodywork and additional features, something it has done with the Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 4V. However, given the RTR 160 2V BS6’s low pricing, it is a viable and relevant stepping stone into the 160cc segment.

Q. Which one to buy RTR 180 or RTR 160 v Fi?
  • Better you should Buy the Apache RTR 180 because its Aerodynamics is much better in comparision to Other Bikes in its Class and also to its Younger Sibling Apache RTR 160 4V Fi.I own a TVS Apache RTR 180 2016 Model and till now it haven't shown us any Chain Sprocket or Engine Problems, instead only the Battery Sometimes Dies Fast and we have ridden almost all kind of Terrains and its Torque & Power is amazing compared to Other 180cc Bikes. TVS APACHE RTR 180 gives you an Aggression of Performance and one who owns The RTR 180 will too soon get to the Bike's Manuals and Riding. I want to say that Our TVS APACHE RTR 180 is the 2016 Model and still it doesn't have any time to Time (almost negligible issues) and our Bike even doesn't have ABS and then also it performs and Brakes and accelerates too well, in point the Bike becomes too responsive and Easy Daily commuter and if any Buys the RTR 180 now in 2020, the New RTR 180 will definitely gonna be more Awesome and Responsive 👍🇮🇳. But maintain the Time to time Bike Servicing and Other Maintenances; you'll obviously gonna take Care of your Beautiful Bike more than you but Ride Safe Guys. Lastly, but not the least, the APACHE RTR 160 4V Fi is also a Quite very Responsive and Good Commuter Bike it's your choice, what you wanna Buy but personally I would Recommend to Buy the TVS APACHE RTR 180 ABS cz I have experienced a lot with all the Models of the Apache RTR 180 till now and I wanna say that ofcourse both the TVS bikes questioned here are amazing Bikes🙏🇮🇳👍
  • I have RTR 180 , It's a good bike but i think you should go for 160 4v Fi, because it's new and upgraded engine its also Fi. 160 4v engine smoother than rtr 180 also less vibration. 20cc is not matter.. So you decide...
  • No doubt Rtr 160 4v is best buy , if budget no issue go with apache 200 4v it give latest technology like slipper clutch, 4v technology, pirelli tyre, and raw power

Q. What's changed in Apache BS6 and when it will be launched?
  • The power and torque have been reduced in the BS 6 version. The look has been facelifted and gives more premium feel to the machine. Headlight is upgraded from halogen to full LED which has better luminance. There is no carburetor variant in BS6 as Fi is kept standard. Price for dual disc variant has got up by around 8000. Exhaust has been made more crispier which resembles to KTM. The electric start mechanism has improved, you hear almost no motor noise on pressing the start button.The engine is more tuned to race and RTFi (race tuned fuel injection) has been added. Overall BS6 variant is 30-40% better
  • BsVI models launched after April ,2020. Changes like carburettor get replace by fuel injector catalic converter to reduce smoke . Abs is mandatory for all bikes.I have this model already.
  • Jab launch hi nahi hui to apke pass kaha se aa gaya BS 6 model?

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.
  • Our suggestion would be to go for the TVS Apache 160 4V because It has better safety features and more power with a refined engine. But to know more about this we suggest you take a test ride of the vehicle and then decide. TVS Apache RTR 160 vs TVS Apache 160 4V Comparison:- https://www.zigwheels.com/bike-comparison/tvs-apache-160-vs-tvs-apache-rtr-160
  • 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.

    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...

    I am a fan boy of Apache bikes because of its looks and exhaust sound so i bought a Apache RTR 160 and i was stunned by its performance i use the bike for daily commute and some tours and my daily commute is in Bengaluru and the bike is comfortable with the traffic and i do tours i traveled 600 kms in a day without any issues and the bike was comfortable and yes there is some vibes around some places at high revs thats not a issue once you ride the bike you will get used to it and it gives a felling of raw power being delivered and Apache has the best looks and performance in its segment and the build quality is best The mileage i got is 45-52 After sales service is just prefect here in Bengaluru if here is any problem they take it seriously and fix it Every one who rides Apache will love it💖RTR💖

    Apache RTR 160 is a bike with good looks and styling but the major drawback is that it gives lots of vibrations even at lower Rpm. The side fairings, handlebars and the footrest vibrates a lot. The visor looks stylish but it doesnot prevent the windblast to a huge extend, this makes ride difficult in highways. The fuelgauge, doesn't provide appropriate info( Not sure, if this problem is for all bikes ). Later, i have ridden the new RTR 160 4V and am happy that the vibrations have been reduced to a certain extend, and the handlebars have been changed from clip on to ordinary handlebars, which reduced the vibrations in the handlebar and the side fairings are removed and the tank is sculpted well and big and thus the vibration on the tank is reduced. And finally the overall ride quality is good.

    Pros :Excellent bike to ride. Very powerful motor in its segment (generates a max power around 16 ps) , very stylish and the most detailed instrument cluster (fully digital). The way it pulls is just way better than its competitors. And moreover the exhaust is so dominating and pleasant on ears. Just loved the machine.Cons:Bigger wheel base so it is bit of hard to turn in smaller spaces since it is heavy as well. For long run, in my opinion the seating stance is bit tiring since it is race inherited. Mileage could have been better but that is a matter of subject which depends upon the traffic and riding style.

    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.

    Every bike has flaws in it In case of Apache as per my experience Engine is the main asset i would say, only bike to match Duke like experience is Apache. I did 128 Kmh comfortably with out huddles, i never got any problems in bike performance and engine side i never opened engine on the long 10 years period Positives: *Performance of the Engine*Millage*Build Quality*Maintenance cost Negatives: *Unrefined Engine*Parts availability*Service providers are not professional
