If we compare Fi version of all bike then i think pickup of TVS Apache will be more, according to mileage 1st will be Hornet then Yamaha and then Apache but the difference will be only 4-5 kms.If we come to comfort i own Apache and i didnt find any problem with comfort, and for pricing you should contact dealers in the city.

Definitely the bike is capable of doing those distance, it comes to the rider and his willpower, unless you have a goal and covering long distance within short time might be less tiring for that higher cruising speed is required here the wind is not in favour to you as it is naked bike. so anywhere between 80-90 will be ideal for you. be scared of crosswinds from cars and big lorry that pass by you either it will push or pull you , at the end of the day not careful enough could make you smile in a photo frame to eternity

1000km, with short rest intervals is good, any bike can do that, but you may need to switch the seats to little more comfy as the seating for rider in my opinion isnt made for long distance

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
Even I too thought of choosing Apache only, but cost wise not that much diff bro.. only very less price diff, but durable is Yamaha only , even after 5 years of riding Yamaha bikes, it won't go down and won't get vibration and all, but Apache and pulsar will give more vibration.. I was having TVS bike oly before my Yamaha FZ-S V3.. performance also fine only...Before going with Yamaha FZ-S V3, I have checked a list of bikes like RE Thunderbird, RE Bullet classic, Apache 160v4, Apache 200, Yamaha FZ-S v2 and V3, Bajaj Pulsar 160, even Honda Hornet also I have tried. Decided Yamaha FZ-S V3 finally.. took around an year (From Jan 2019 till Nov 23, 2019) ... 😄😄Moreover Apache is Indian made so cost must be lesser than Yamaha which is getting imported and tax duties must be high.. I didn't meant to say Indian bikes are cheaper and Yamaha is good bcos of Foreign made.. but it's a fact... If you consider there is some value for engine and durability of it, go for Yamaha or else Honda bikes than TVS and Bajaj bikes... 😊

Usually, BS6 motors produce a wee bit of less power and torque and you may observe the same in BS6 RTR 160 4V too.The 159.7cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine now makes 16.02PS and 14.12Nm, which is 0.77PS and 0.68Nm less compared to the BS4 version. Moreover, it now comes equipped with fuel injection.Apart from the BS6 compliant engine, it gets a new sharp LED headlamp, new decals, and a dual-tone seat. Also, the brand has added GTT (Glide Through Traffic). This works as low RPM assist and should prove quite helpful in urban riding conditions.You may check out our dedicated article in order to know more about it.
As the name suggests, this Apache 160’s motor has a 4-valve head, much like the Apache RTR 200. In fact, this whole engine has been derived from the 200. It’s a 159.7cc single-cylinder liquid cooled unit which has the same bore and stroke dimensions - 62mm x 52.9mm - as the earlier RTR 160, but the compression ratio has been bumped up to 10.15:1. To assist in heat management, it features oil cooling as well as a “ram-air” duct behind the right tank shroud to channel air to the engine. And there’s fuel-injection on offer as well. The end result is the best in class power and torque figures for a 160cc single-cylinder air-cooled motor: 16.8PS @ 8000rpm and 14.8Nm @ 6500rpm respectively.
