The latest version has new alloy wheels, black front forks, new 4-valve system, and oil cooling. It also features aggressive looks thanks to its low-set headlamp, sculpted fuel tank, contoured single-piece seat, dual-tone side panels and an all-digital instrument console that includes a tripmeter and a clock.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review

  • Overview

  • Braking and Handling

  • Safety and Features

TVS has launched a new matte red colour for the RTR 160 and RTR 180. The new paint job carries a premium of Rs 1,000 over the existing variants. 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.

Powered by a 159.7cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine, the TVS Apache RTR 160 delivers 15.3PS at 8500rpm, while peak torque of 13.1Nm is produced at 4000rpm. 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.

More aggressive, more authoritative and bolder is what the looks of TVS Apache RTR 160 are all about. Being a naked street commuter, it comes with bikini fairing that would either make you love it or simply hate it because there isn’t a middle way. Up front, it has a wedge-shaped LED pilot lamps setup that works as a substitute for AHO. While under the eyes of the rider is a nice sculpted instrument cluster containing a display with all the essential details in the digital format except the analogue tachometer including speedometer, odometer, fuel gauge, clock and trip meter. The carbon fibre cues around the display unit are nothing less than a racing beast inspired imprints.


 On the sides, you’d notice the aerodynamic tank design that reduces heat produced by the engine by 10 degrees, makes the air to flow freely and adds to its muscular character. Tank gets different decals than RTR 180 and carbon fibre finished inserts on its panels that uplift its style quotient a bit more. At the rear, there is a tri-coloured race insignia of the brand just below the split rear grab bar. The bike ends with a sleek and a sharp tail cowl and a full LED tail lamp setup. The sporty character of the TVS Apache RTR 160 goes a level up with white stripes on its black alloys and gold garnishing over its suspension unit. There are five colour choices for you to choose from including white, black, grey, red and yellow.

The powermill that this bike gets is a carburetted single cylinder 4-stroke air cooled 159.7cc engine that gushes out a max power of 15.21PS at 8,500 rpm and a peak torque of 13.1Nm at 4,000 rpm. There is a 5-speed multiplate gearbox mated to the engine that supplies power to the wheels of the bike. The company still hasn’t considered integrating a fuel-injection engine and riders will have to wait for another major update for the same to happen. The fuel economy as claimed by the company is slated to be 60 Kmpl, which still is a doubtful column. However, the performance is impeccable and the engine won’t miss a chance to surprise you with its power delivery down the rev range as well as in the high. You can twist the throttle hard to make this beast touch its top speed of 118 Kmph.

Built on a 'synchronous stiff chassis', Apache RTR 160 offers a comfortable ride to the rider as well as the pillion. There is sufficient cushion on the seat for both and the riding position is just perfect. The suspension assembly is standard with a 105mm telescopic fork at the front while at the rear it has gas-filled monotubes five-step adjustable shock absorbers.


 On the braking front, Apache RTR 160 comes with 270mm petal disc brake at the front while at the rear, there is a combo of 200mm petal disc and 130mm drum brakes. 

Unfortunately, the company hasn’t done anything exceptional in this regard and ABS (Anti-lock Braking System) and RLP (Rear Wheel Lift Off Protection) features are not even available as an optional package. So, all you have is the combination of a reliable suspension system, grippy stock tubeless tyres and responsive braking system to take care of you and the passenger behind as you glide through the traffic-ridden city roads or along the speedy expressways.

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
