Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review
The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Fi now gets single-channel ABS priced at Rs 98,785 (ex-showroom Delhi). The addition of this safety feature translates to a price hike of almost Rs 7,000 over the non-ABS variant. The Apache RTR 160 4V features a complete redesign along with an all-new motor. Its small headlamp, sculpted fuel tank, contoured single-piece seat, dual-tone side panels now give it a modern look similar to the larger Apache RTR 200 4V. The all-digital instrument console is borrowed from the RTR 200, with the fuel injected model having a more info-laden console than the carburetted version. Fuel tank capacity is 12 litres.
The 159.7cc, air and oil-cooled single-cylinder motor makes 16.5PS at 8000rpm and 14.8Nm of torque at 6500 rpm in conjunction with a 5-speed gearbox. The frame is a new split cradle unit. Suspension setup includes telescopic front forks and rear Showa monoshock, while braking is handled by disc brakes on both ends. There is also a base variant that gets a rear drum brake and a thinner 110-section rear tyre instead of the stock 120-section rear tyre. It is available in three colours: Racing Black, Racing Blue, and Racing Red.
The Apache RTR 160 4V ABS is available in three variants: Carburetor single disc, Carburetor dual disc, and Fi dual disc. The base variant is priced at Rs 89,785 while the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual Disc variants are equipped with disc brakes at both ends and are priced at Rs 92,785 and Rs 98,785 (all prices ex-showroom Delhi) respectively. It competes against the Honda CB Hornet 160R, the Suzuki Gixxer, the Pulsar NS160, and the Yamaha FZ-S FI.
Design and Features
In terms of design, the RTR 160 4V looks heavily inspired by its elder sibling, the RTR 200 4V, which makes it look sportier and more aggressive. Up front, the motorcycle features a sharp and sleek halogen headlamp with LED DRLs. The beefed up fuel tank and aggressive shrouds add to the masculinity of the bike. They’re also functional as the air duct on the right cowl is designed to act as a ram-air assist, which reduces the engine heat map by 10 degree Celsius, claims TVS. Moving towards the side, the new Apache RTR 160 4V features side panels finished in silver with “Apache” branding. The sides of the fuel tank get a chequered flag decal and the new TVS emblem that lend a premium touch to the bike. The engine belly pan is all sharp and edgy, adding to the racing character of the bike. At the rear, the RTR 160 4V features an LED tail lamp, sporty split grab rail, a short fender and a double-barrel exhaust muffler as seen on the RTR 200 4V.
The Apache RTR 160 4V features a new single-piece handlebar and a fully digital instrument cluster which includes a tachometer, odometer, tripmeter, service reminder, lap timer, top speed and acceleration recorder, gear position indicator and a clock. All these features are available in the FI variant, whereas the Carb version gets the same console minus the additional details, with amber backlight. It has the regular trove of readouts like speedometer, tachometer, dual trip meters, fuel gauge, odometer and the likes.
Engine and Performance
Following the footsteps of its elder sibling, the RTR 200 4V, the smaller RTR comes with a new four-valve engine platform, featuring a 159.7cc, single-cylinder, 4-stroke, OHC air-cooled motor with oil cooling. The fuel-injected variant produces a max power of 16.8PS @ 8000rpm, while the carburetted variant churns out max power of 16.5PS @ 8000rpm. The engine produces peak torque of 14.8Nm @ 6500rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. With the help of a counterbalancer, the updated engine is much quieter than the existing one, especially at idle. Even the transmission unit is tractable enough to pull from 30kmph in the fifth gear. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 12 litres. Though the fuel injected variant offers crisper throttle response, the carburetted version has a more punchy power delivery, and is more engaging to ride.
Braking and Handling
Built on a synchronous stiff frame, the RTR 160 4V offers a comfortable ride for both the rider and the pillion. Suspension setup comprises of telescopic front forks and a Showa monoshock at the rear. It’s equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels shod with a 90/90 tubeless tyre up front and a 130/70 tubeless tyre at the rear. Braking is handled by a 270mm petal front disc and 130mm drum brake at the rear in the base variant, while the dual disc variants feature a 200mm rear disc brake. TVS has equipped the Apache RTR 160 4V with single-channel ABS which they are calling it as Supermoto ABS.
Safety and Features
The RTR 160 4V is equipped with dual disc brakes in the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual Disc variants to efficiently handle braking at high speeds. The tyres are wide enough to provide better grip on slippery roads and instil confidence on corners. It also features Automatic Headlamp On (AHO), which keeps the headlamp turned on at all times. Additionally, the bike now features the safety net of single-channel ABS.
