The bikes get more power, better tech and tyres 

TVS Updates RTR 160 and 180

In a surprise move, TVS has chosen to update the Apache RTR 160 and the RTR 180 instead of giving us the Apache RR 310 RP, the bike we thought we’d get today. With the 4V models selling well, updating the 2V models could be an attempt from the bikemaker to keep the bikes relevant in today’s fast-paced market. 

Updated TVS RTR 160

Coming to the meaty part, the RTR 160’s 159.7cc mill now makes 16.04PS and 13.85Nm, which is 0.51PS more, but 0.05Nm less than the outgoing model. That said, it now tips the scales at 138kg, meaning it’s 2kg lighter than its predecessor. Similarly, the RTR 180 makes 17.02PS and 15.05Nm; 0.23PS more but 0.45Nm less than the previous model, and it now weighs 1kg less than before. You also get three riding modes: Sport, Urban and Rain mode. The throttle mapping and ABS sensitivity will change according to the riding mode you’re in. 

Updated TVS RTR 160

The bikes now get a wider 120-section tyre at the rear, an upgrade over the previous models’ 110-section one, while the unit up front remains the same 90-section unit. For added durability, you now get an X-ring chain. The brakes have been unchanged and both the bikes get single-channel ABS.  

TVS RTR 180 Instrument Console

In usual TVS fashion, the veteran bikemaker has equipped the bikes with a new fully digital instrument cluster. The clusters now come with voice assist too, a first in the segment. Equipped with TVS’ SmartXonnect, you can connect your smartphone to the motorcycle’s console via Bluetooth, gaining access to call and SMS alerts, turn-by-turn navigation and a ton of other data. That said, only the top-of-the-line variant  of the RTR 160 gets the bluetooth feature, while it’s standard on the RTR 180.

Updated TVS RTR 180 Headlight

Both the bikes get a new LED headlight along with a new taillamp, which is an LED unit too. That said, the overall design hasn’t changed and you still get a sporty-looking headlight cowl, which is complemented by beefy tank extensions. The RTR 160 is now available in five colours: Gloss Black, Pearl White, Racing Red, Matte Blue and T-Grey. 

Updated TVS RTR 160 Colours

The RTR 180, on the other side, has two colours on offer: Gloss Black and Pearl White.

Updated TVS RTR 180 Colours

The RTR 160 has been priced at Rs 1,17,790 for the base variant, while the disc brake variant with riding modes will cost you Rs 1,21,290, which means they see an increase of Rs 4,050 and Rs 4,550 respectively. The SmartXonnect variant, on the other hand, retails at Rs 1,24,590. The RTR 180, on the other hand, is available in one variant only, which costs Rs 1,30,590, meaning a Rs 9,900 increase over its previous iteration (all prices ex-showroom Delhi). Bookings for the bikes are open today, on TVS’ official website.
