    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 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. 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. 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. Do take a test ride in order to judge your riding comfort.

    The Apache RTR 160 4V’s engine is based on the RTR 200, but has been heavily reworked to suit the character of this motorcycle. TVS claims that the oil-cooled chamber with ram-air assist reduces the engine heatmap by 10-degree Celsius. The ‘Nano friKS’ coating on the piston makes the engine free-revving, as per the bikemaker. The Apache RTR 160’s short-stroke engine helps the bike rev and accelerate faster. Both the bikes’ engines work in conjunction with a 5-speed transmission. With the RTR 160 4V, you get a more advanced air-cooled engine with oil cooler that is more performance-focussed, future-ready (read BSVI-compliant) and refined than the RTR 160 with the two-valve mill. We have tested its carburetted version and it managed 50.9kmpl in the city and 56.1kmpl on the highway. TVS has an FI version of the RTR 160, though we’re yet to test it. 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. 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.

    TVS Apache RTR 160 comes with a 159.7 cc engine which generates 16.8PS/ 14.8Nm and can be reach from zero to 60kmph in 5.04 seconds. It has 3 variants 4V Carburetor Single Disc, 4V Carburetor Dual Disc and 4V Fi Dual Disc. The claimed mileage of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is 60kmpl. Although, our experts has tested its carburetted on road and found that it gives class leading figures of 50.9kmpl in the city and 56.1kmpl on the highway. Acceleration feels brisk, but linear, and there’s plenty of pull to be had in the mid-range as well. The motor’s tractability is extremely impressive as well, as it can pull from speeds as low as 30kmph in 5th gear without any signs of strain or lugging! Here the 5-speed gearbox also need to be mentioned, as it offers up a very slick shifting experience. Out on the TVS test track, we never missed a shift, whether riding aggressively or at an easy pace. One big highlight of this engine has to be its sheer refinement level. It feels extremely smooth at pretty much any rpm, and there are almost no vibrations even high up in the rev range. It does hit some resonance at 9,000rpm, causing a bit of buzz in the tank and the centre panel, but that goes away past 10,000, and it is smooth once again all the way to its redline of 11,500rpm. This has to be one of, if not the smoothest, motor in this class. Read more: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Carb: 1500Km Long Term Review- https://bit.ly/2mMymZ0

    The claimed ARAI mileage for the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V petrol is 60 kmpl.It’s very clear that even though it looks like the RTR 200, this RTR 160 4V is a very different motorcycle. And it is a big step up from the older 160. But is it “race-derived,” as TVS claims? In that regard the handling is absolutely sublime - it’s precise and planted at the same time. And even though the motor doesn’t have the same raw edginess as the older Apache, it is probably the quickest bike in its segment now.Apache purists might argue that this new 160 has lost some of its RTR-ness. But it’s become a bike that really will do most things quite well - whether it’s commuting, sport riding in the twisties, or even clocking some highway miles. It certainly feels like a bike you can live with, and have fun on at the same time. And that in our book earns it high praise.

    With the 159cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled, four-valve engine, it is among the premium sports commuter. It picks up without any untowardly jitters even in the fourth gear at 25kmph. The five-speed gearbox doesn't feel very smooth shifting between first, neutral and second gears, as it is with other new TVS transmissions. The superior built of chassis makes the 147kg bike a breeze leaning into corners and would feel so even for a beginner. The brakes have a good bite and progression and the grippy TVS Remora tyres add to the experience. While the Apache performs well in traffic, the premium commuter would not feel out of place on a track either.
