TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review

  • Safety and Features

The 2018 version of the Apache RTR 160 features a complete redesign along with an all-new motor. Its low-set headlamp, sculpted fuel tank, contoured single-piece seat, dual-tone side panels now gives it a modern look similar to the larger Apache RTR 200 4V.  The all-digital instrument console is borrowed from the RTR 200. 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 and is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The frame is a new split cradle unit. Suspension setup includes Showa front forks and rear twin Showa dampers. Braking is via a single disc upfront and a rear disc. 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: black, blue, and 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 81,490 while the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual Disc is equipped with disc brakes at both ends and are priced at Rs 84,490 and Rs 89,990 (ex-showroom Delhi) respectively. It competes against the Honda X-Blade, the Suzuki Gixxer, the Pulsar NS160, and the Yamaha FZ FI.

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. Upfront, the motorcycle features a sharp low-set headlamp with AHO and LED DRLs. The beefed up fuel tank and aggressive shrouds add to the masculinity of the bike. 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 gives a premium touch to the bike. The engine belly pan is all sharp and edgy, boosting 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 dual-port exhaust muffler as seen on 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 recorder and a clock. The motorcycle also gets air intakes underneath the tank shrouds to keep the engine cooler.

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, oil cooled engine. The fuel-injected variant produces max power of 16.5PS @ 8000 rpm while the carburetted variant churns max power of 16.4 PS @ 8000 rpm. The engine produces peak torque of 14.8Nm @ 6500 rpm and comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox. The updated engine is much quieter than the existing one, especially at idle. TVS claims that it can clock a top speed of 113kmph and yields a mileage of 30kmpl. The fuel tank capacity of the bike is 12 litres.

Built on a synchronous stiff frame, the RTR 160 4V offers a comfortable ride to 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 upfront and a 110/80 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. 

The RTR 160 4V is equipped with dual disc brakes in the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual 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.

BikeDekho Verdict

The Apache RTR160 offers good performance while being frugal and comes with an affordable price tag. The styling though, is showing its age
