TVS Apache RTR 160 Specifications

The TVS Apache RTR 160 2V BS6 is powered by a fuel-injected 159.7cc single-cylinder 2-valve SOHC air-cooled motor. Output figures have gone up slightly to 15.53PS at 8400rpm and 13.9Nm at 7000rpm, 0.42PS and 0.87Nm more than the BS4 model. It gets a 5-speed gearbox. Thanks to the inclusion of fuel injection, TVS has been able to give the RTR 160 a torque-assist feature called ‘Glide Through Technology’. The system bumps up revs at low-throttle openings and prevents the engine from stalling. The Apache RTR 160 2V BS6’s race-tuned, dual-cradle frame has been carried over, as have the telescopic fork and twin gas-charged shock absorbers. Braking is via a 270mm front petal disc and a 130mm rear drum, along with an optional rear 200mm petal disc. Both variants get single-channel ABS. The disc brake variant weighs 140kg (drum brake variant is 139kg). It has an accessible 790mm seat height, 180mm ground clearance, and a 12-litre fuel tank. It gets 90/90-17 front and 110/80-17 rear tubeless Remora tyres.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Design

The Apache RTR 160 2V continues to flaunt the decade-old design, unlike that of the modern 4-valve models. That said, the RTR 160 2V BS6 gets one extra colour (gloss red), in addition to the existing pearl white, matte blue, matte red, gloss black, and T grey shades.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Features

The RTR 160 2V gets a basic feature set. The lighting setup comprises a halogen headlamp with LED DRLs, LED tail lamp, and bulb turn indicators. The semi-digital instrument console’s layout is basic at best. The digital display includes a speedometer, fuel gauge, clock, and odometer. Only a single-channel ABS for the RTR 160 2V.

Editor's View of TVS Apache RTR 160

  • Upside

    TVS’ Glide Through Technology (GTT) makes low-speed crawling more effortless, Makes slightly more power and torque than before

  • Downside

    Engine is still vibey at higher rpm, Looks a bit dated,Is priced too close to the more powerful Apache RTR 160 4V

  • 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.

    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.
