With similar styling to its elder sibling, the TVS Apache RTR 160 also received an update the same time as the TVS Apache RTR 180 did. On the design front, the TVS Apache RTR 160 looks very quirky. The sharp lines along with the edgy design lines make it stand out from its segment rivals. The design update included LED daytime running lights (DRLs), faux carbon fibre finish body panels and a redesigned semi-digital instrument cluster. The only distinguishing factor separating the TVS Apache RTR 160 from its elder sibling, is the new set of graphics.

Power is transferred to the rear wheel with the aid of a 5-speed gearbox. The company claimed mileage of the TVS Apache RTR 160 stands at 60kmpl. Braking is managed by a 270mm petal disc brake up front and a 200mm petal disc at the rear.


Priced at Rs 76,575 (ex-showroom Delhi), the TVS Apache RTR 160 rivals against the Suzuki Gixxer, Honda CB Hornet 160R and the Bajaj Pulsar NS160.

Being one of the more exquisite offering by the manufacturer, the top model of the series also boasts of Anti-lock braking system which is a unique feature in its segment. The pleasant part of the motorcycles is that they are affordable, thrilling and made for streets. One can commute, race and even can perform stunts on these little maniacs.

Rolling the machine are the 90/90 x 17" front and 110/80 x 17" rear tubeless tyres that sport all black 6-spoke alloy wheels.

The front of the machine is pretty fascinating, there are LED day time running lights embedded above the twin pilot lamps that makes the headlight section look like an animal head. Muscled tank, which has been an inspiration of the Apache series since inception looks extraordinary and electrifying with the meticulously designed tank shrouds. Engine cowl is bestowed to the machine with aerodynamic razor ed design. Rear tail of the machine gets a separated tail light unit and brake light unit which is rare to find.

TVS Apache RTR 160 has a 159.7cc, single cylinder, 4-stroke engine that is coupled to a 5-speed transmission system. The motor is tuned to generate a maximum power of 15.2bhp at 8,500rpm with a peak torque of 13.1Nm at 4,000rpm. The top speed attained by the machine is 118kmph.

Though, Apache RTR 180s enjoy the presence of Anti-lock braking system. The handling could have been better with the incorporation of wider tyres. 

Anti-lock braking system is a great safety features for the rider as these machines have enough power to kill the rider. The light weight and sound suspensions system are also there to enhance rider’s performance over the machine that will reduce chances of going out of control. Moreover, the manufacturer must use wider tyres to enhance the traction.
