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. Also, mileage can be differ and depends on one's riding style and how it is maintained.Though we’re yet to test its FI variant, there is a minor difference in the refinement levels of the FI and the carburetted bikes though. The FI is just that little bit smoother, and also offers up a slightly sharper throttle response. And when you’re in the very upper band of the rev range, the FI doesn’t feel out of steam. The carburetted bike on the other hand feels a little gruntier, though it is a little gruff as well. But in many ways the carbed bike feels more enjoyable to ride, thanks to its slightly punchier power delivery in the mid range. In case of long rides, it might bother you to take a break due to its aggressive riding position.

I love carburettor variant because we can tune the carburettor.. and low maintanence and if there's a problem in fuel injection you can't modify you have to buy a new fi system which is costly... there is no such a big difference in mileage is rarely 2-4 km and i don't think it's a big deal

See obviously fi varient is better..but if you ride on long routes then i will suggest you to opt for the carburettor varient because if in any case your bike brokes down then the carburettor engine can be repaired by anyone... on the other hand the fi engine is a bit more complex to repair.
Modern bikes do not require any constant attention for starting up the engine. The new bikes are fuel injected electronically. There are special electrical circuits which take care of the pressure required inside the engine to compress the fuel which in the earlier time was done by mechanical norms. The Kick is used in the carburated bike to make the required pressure in the engine. This is how the combustion engines get its first start. Some times when the bike is cool and there is no pressure inside the engine the bike gets problems and require many kicks to start the engine. while in the fuel injection system where the bike starts hassle free. You can easily park your vehicle for a longer time but the bike's battery would self drain in about a month's time and thus you would either have to jump start the vehicle or replace the battery so that the fuel pump may get charged develop fuel pressure and start the fuel injection.The city mileage of TVS Apache RTR 4v FI ABS is around 60kmpl (ARAI certified).
The difference is between their fuel supply system. In Apache RTR 160 4v FI- the term "FI" stands for fuel injection whereas, In RTR 160 4v has carburetor fuel supply system. Taking about the difference in their price, Apache RTR 160 4V FI cost more because of its fuel supply system which enhance its cost and has a completely different fitting and needs much more maintenance as compare to carburetor. On the other hand, Fuel injection does allow for more accurate control of the air/fuel ratio, and in doing so, allows a bike to run cleaner and keep a catalytic converter on board with improved fuel efficiency.

EFI is a version which consists of ece boards and sensors which sense the amount of petrol to be sent to the engine depending on the power. Where as in carb version it is fully mechanical as in old bikes. The major difference is the EFI versions gives some point difference in mileage. I prefer the carb because it has only some minor difference.

Apache RTR 160 4V Fi Dual Disc comes with fuel injection technology and other variants comes with Carburetor fuel system. Taking about the difference in their price, Apache RTR 160 4V FI cost more because of its fuel supply system which enhance its cost and has a completely different fitting and needs much more maintenance as compare to carburetor. On the other hand, Fuel injection does allow for more accurate control of the air/fuel ratio, and in doing so, allows a bike to run cleaner and keep a catalytic converter on board with improved fuel efficiency.

The only difference is that in single disc we get 110 section rear tyre and in double disc we get 130 section rear tyre and according to that there won't be any noticeable mileage difference.

The only difference between them is that in Dual disc it gets both disc brake in both front and rear wheel, whereas, in single disc trim it is equipped with drum brake at the rear end. Click on the link to compare them: https://bit.ly/2wSdAMt
