TVS Apache RTR 160 Expert Review

17 October 2017: Visually stunning and potentially powerful, the TVS Apache RTR 160 is injected with the similar racing gene typical to the RTR (Racing Throttle Response) series. The sporty machine from TVS flaunts a race-inspired aerodynamic body that is a product of sharp design elements like sculpted tank covered with edgy shrouds, an air-slicing engine cowl, and chiselled side-lines. The Apache RTR 160 is integrated with a macho beast headlight assembly and sharp LED tail lights. Powering the racing machine is the 159.7cc, 4-stroke single cylinder carburetted engine that pumps 15.2bhp @ 8500rpm worth of peak power and a decent torque value of 13.1Nm @ 4000rpm. These power and torque outputs are transferred to the driving rear wheels through the seamless 5-speed transmission unit. It has a claimed mileage of 60kmpl and a claimed top speed of 118kmph. The TVS Apache RTR 160 is equipped with purely effective and prompt braking arrangement that consists of front 270mm petal disc and rear 200mm petal disc brake units. The sporty bike is praised for its superior handling and ride comfort that is a conduct of front telescopic forks and rear Monotube inverted gas-filled shox (MIG) suspension. The TVS Apache RTR 160 can be availed in any of its five colour options that include: White, Black, Gray, Sporty Red, and Sporty Yellow. The racing beast retails at a price of Rs 90,078 (On road, Delhi) and faces tough competition from the Bajaj Pulsar 150, Yamaha FZ-S FI, Suzuki Gixxer and the Honda CB Hornet 160R.

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.

TVS Apache RTR series is assembled on Double Cradle SynchroSTIFF chassis that remains rigid and helps the rider to challenge the extremities of the bike. 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 wheels are equipped with 270mm petal disc brake at the front and 200mm petal disc brake at the rear. Though, disc brake is optional for the 160cc variant and 130mm drum brake is standard. Moreover, Anti-lock braking system is also available for the 180cc variant. Telescopic forks are equipped to the front wheel while monotube Inverted Gas-filled shox (MIG) with spring aid are located at the rear.

Designed for thrill this motorbike is a pleasure to ride, its aesthetics are aerodynamic, wheelbase of 1300mm – 1326mm increases confidence at cornering and minimum ground clearance of 165mm is compatible with the Indian roads. The overall measurements of the machine are 2085mm of length, 730mm of width and 1105mm of height. The kerb weight of the 180cc versions are 139kg and that of the Apache RTR 160 is 137kg.

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.

The manufacturer has equipped the machines with IDI-Dual mode digital ignition that swiftly ignites them with a touch. The bikes get a large 16 liter fuel tank capacity to run hundreds of kilometers at one go. 

TVS Apache RTR series is compact, fast and ready to race each time one turns the ignition on. The bike has lightweight to handle it nicely. The dimensions of the bike are also genuine enough to perform various exciting stunts. Braking of the machines is also responsive with the disc brakes at both the ends. 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.
