TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Highlights

The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a major departure from the RTR 160 2V, both in terms of design and dynamics. The RTR 160 4V looks more in line with the RTR 200, complete with the sleek headlamp design, mass-forward muscular fuel tank and a sleeker tail section than the 2V variant. Design wise, as expected, the motorcycle features minimal graphics, which look quite elegant. The large TVS logo on the fuel tank is complemented by the ‘Apache’ sticker on the side panel and ‘Hyper Edge’ sticker on the engine cowl. The racing stripe on the fuel tank ends with a TVS Racing sticker on the front fender. The tail section bears a striking resemblance to the RTR 200, with the LED tail light and double-barrel exhaust.

Powering this motorcycle is a 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with oil cooler. Working along with a 5-speed transmission, it generates 16.8PS (Fuel Injected) at 8000rpm and 14.8Nm at 6500rpm. The carburetted model makes 0.3PS lesser. The powertrain is nestled inside a double cradle split synchro stiff frame, which is suspended on telescopic front forks and a Showa monoshock at the rear. TVS offers a 270mm petal disc up front and 200mm rear petal disc or 130mm rear drum. There are three variants in total. The carburetted version can be had either with a rear disc or drum option, while the fuel injected version is equipped with disc brakes at both ends.

Main rivals of the motorcycle include the Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 and Yamaha FZ-S FI.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review


The 2018 version of the Apache RTR 160 features a complete redesign along with an all-new motor. Its petite 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 is available in three variants: Carburetor single disc, Carburetor dual disc, and Fi dual disc. The base variant is priced at Rs 82,535 while the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual Disc variants are equipped with disc brakes at both ends and are priced at Rs 85,535 and Rs 91,535 (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. Surprisingly, the RTR 160 4V doesn’t feature ABS (Anti-lock Braking system), not even as an option.

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. There is no combined braking system nor Anti-lock Braking System, even as an option.
