Apache 160 Expert Review
The TVS RTR 160 sports a relatively conservative design compared to the more aggressive Apache RTR 160 4V. However, its eyebrow-shaped DRLs and muscular fuel tank extensions add a bit of aggression to the otherwise staid design. Despite its age we must say that the Apache RTR 160 still is a handsome looking bike and the subtle updates have managed to keep the design fresh. Pricing for the bike was updated in April 2021 and the Drum variant costs Rs 1,03,365 and the Disc variant is priced at Rs 1,06,365.
Moving to the features, the RTR 160 misses out on updates given to the RTR 160 4V. Instead, it settles for a basic blue backlit semi-digital instrument console and LED DRLs. In comparison, its rivals like the Honda X-Blade comes with features such as a fully-digital instrument console and LED headlamps, while being cheaper by around Rs 1,000 or so.
Engine and Performance
Powering the TVS Apache RTR 160 is a 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine. It produces 15.3PS of power at 8000rpm and 13.03Nm of torque at 6500rpm. Transmission duties are handled by a 5-speed gearbox. While the styling has managed to remain contemporary, the motor has started to show its age, it isn’t as smooth and vibe free as the RTR 160 4V’s engine.
Braking and Handling
The Apache RTR 160 is built on a double-cradle frame which is suspended upon conventional telescopic front forks and dual gas-charged rear shock absorbers. The braking setup comprises of a 270mm petal disc brake at the front and a 130mm drum unit at the rear (200mm disc optional). Its 17-inch wheels are shod with 90/90 front and 110/80 rear tubeless tyres. ABS has been given a miss here and isn’t even offered as an option.
Safety and Features
For braking, it gets a 270mm front petal disc and 130mm rear drum, with a 200mm rear disc available as an optional extra. Both bikes now get single channel ABS as standard.
