    This Apache comes equipped with TVS Remora tyres at both ends: a 90/90-17 upfront and a 130/70-17 at the rear. But that rear rubber is only offered on the rear disc brake variants, as the rear drum variant gets a 110/80-17 rear. But put the bike through its paces and it’s clear that this RTR 160’s handling prowess is down primarily to the chassis and suspension setup, because the tyres are average at best. Hats off to TVS for engineering such a brilliant setup, which we think should feel even better with better rubber. To be honest, the brakes were a bit of a disappointment. The front brake lever feels spongy and there’s almost no feel from it. Even the bite is not all that great. In fact, a couple of times, under very hard braking, we got a massive brake fade. While we don’t believe that these brakes will be an issue for everyday use, if you’re riding hard and fast, such as on a racetrack, you will need to recalibrate braking distances in your head. Though we haven't tested the bike in wet road conditions, it requires more cautious riding. In our road test, it delivered 50.9kmpl in the city and 56.1kmpl on the highway. Also, mileage will depend on factors like riding style, road traffic conditions etc. Do take a test ride in order to get better clarity. Check out authorised dealership details.
