Must Read Questions & Answers Before Buying Apache RTR 160

Q. Which is the better option for family bike between Honda unicorn and TV's Apache 160?
  • Among the two, if you are looking for a calm and comfortable bike with a reliable and refined engine, then the Honda Unicorn would be a good option. Unicorn has always been the go-to bike if you were planning to buy a 150cc commuter and with the BS6 update, the Unicorn now gets a larger 163cc fuel-injected, air-cooled engine. With the old-school styling, it still remains a well-rounded motorcycle. On the other hand, if you are looking for sporty motorcycle with bits of modern elements, then you may opt for the TVS Apache RTR 160. Given the RTR 160 2V BS6’s low pricing, it is a viable and relevant stepping stone into the 160cc segment. Moreover, we would suggest you to take a test ride before making the final decision. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership details.Read More: - Honda Unicorn vs TVS Apache RTR 160

Q. How safe TVS Apache RTR 160 rear drum and front disc system?
  • The braking duties on the Apache RTR 160 4V are handled by 270mm front petal disc and 130mm drum unit for the Drum variant and a 200mm petal rear disc for the Disc variant. The brakes do feel a bit spongy while riding hard on tracks, however, it works perfectly on the regular roads. Moreover, we would suggest you to opt for the rear disc variant for added safety. For a better understanding of compatibility and riding comfort, we would suggest you to take a test ride. Follow the link and select your desired city for dealership.

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🙏🇮🇳👍
  • RTR 180 is better than RTR 160 because RTR180 gives you a better performance and mileage and everything whatever you need you can do with 180 but you can also do with 160 but cannot gives you everything like mileage , style , power .It depends on you and your budget .
  • 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...

Q. Pulsar 150 & Apache RTR 160, which one has lowest maintenance?
  • Though both have similar service cost but Pulsar have a service interval of 5000 km than that of Apache at 3000 km. Besides Apache spares are 10-30% expensive than Pulsar. So owning a Bajaj will cost you less on pocket on long run. After all 'Hamara Bajaj'.. 😜

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 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.
