The 2023 iteration sees a new ‘bullpup’ exhaust design

TVS Motor has launched the 2023 iteration of the Apache RTR 160 4V Special Edition. This comes after we had spied a test mule of this bike a few months ago. Priced exactly the same as the outgoing version, at Rs 1,30,090 (ex-showroom Delhi), the Apache RTR 160 4V Special Edition now gets a revised ‘bullpup’ exhaust design, along with a new colourway.

The Hosur-based manufacturer claims that this new exhaust helps shave 1kg off the bike’s overall kerb weight, while also delivering a sportier exhaust note. Also, in addition to the Matte Black paint scheme, the 2023 iteration also sees the addition of a Pearl White shade with a black front and red rear colour combination for the alloy wheels.

Mechanically, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Special Edition remains the same as its predecessor, sporting a 159.7cc, air-oil-cooled, single cylinder engine producing 17.55PS at 9250rpm and 14.73Nm at 7250 rpm. This engine is paired to a five-speed gearbox. 

While the 2023 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Special Edition has taken a small step forward with the latest updates, we did hope that it would feature a dual-channel ABS system, to bring it on a par with its closest rival, the Bajaj Pulsar N160

That said, given that the 2023 iteration does not get a price hike, it continues to command a premium of only Rs 445 over the dual-channel ABS variant of its rival from Bajaj, despite packing more features.

Apart from the Bajaj Pulsar N160, this bike also takes on the likes of the Hero Xtreme 160R, Suzuki Gixxer and Yamaha FZ-S FI.
