Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review
With the new BS6 emission norms set to come into effect in a few months, bike manufacturers have begun introducing cleaner and greener motorcycles-. The updated models cost 10-15 per cent more compared to their BS4 counterparts and, in order to justify the price tag, manufacturers are throwing new features to lure the masses. But when it comes to entry-level performance bikes, brands are working hard to ensure the performance quotient doesn’t take a hit in order to meet these norms. So how do TVS’ Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 4V perform after the updates? Let’s find out.
Design and Features
In terms of design, not much. The most prominent change in the updated 160 4V and the 200 4V compared to their BS4 counterparts is the new LED headlamp unit. To make things easier for you, here’s what’s new: The seat cover on the RTR 160 4V now gets a dual-tone treatment, in addition to which it gets new decals and a faux carbon-fibre finish on the mirrors. The 200 4V also gets new stickers and the same faux carbon-fibre finish on the mirrors as seen on its smaller sibling… and that’s about it. We feel TVS could have introduced new paint options or even opted for new decals to help the motorcycles stand apart from their BS4 versions.
TVS engineers have added some cool new segment-first features to the BS6-compliant motorcycles. For instance, the updated bikes now come with a feature called ‘Glide Through Traffic’ or GTT. Behind this marketing term lays a simple yet effective piece of engineering. This feature kind of works like torque-assist (as seen on some high-end motorcycles) where the rider doesn’t have to twist the throttle or use the clutch at low speeds and all that the rider has to do is roll off the throttle in a nice and smooth manner. This system worked brilliantly at TVS’ test track in Hosur where we could do about 7kmph in first gear, 12kmph in second and around 17kmph in third gear… without even touching the throttle. It even works with a pillion on board and on mildly steep inclines! However, we will have to wait and see how well this feature works in stop-and-go traffic situations.

From the outside, the BS6-compliant versions of the 160 4V and the 200 4V look largely identical to the outgoing models. But TVS has heavily revised some components to make these models adhere to the new emission norms. For instance, TVS’ engineers claim they have thoroughly tweaked the internals of the exhaust system. TVS has also redesigned the pistons and piston rings, in addition to which it gets a new intake, and even the valve timing has been changed. All these updates in the interests of BS6-compliance have, however, made a small difference to power outputs. The BS6 RTR 160 4V now churns out 0.78PS and 0.68Nm less than before, with peak power now coming at a slightly higher 8250rpm (up from 8000rpm) and peak torque is now available at 7250rpm (up from 6500rpm)
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.
