TVS Apache RTR 160 Highlights
TVS has flagged off its first-ever international ride for TVS bike owners. This is the first time the Apache Owners Group (A.O.G.) will ride together outside India. The Apache RTR 160 is sold alongside the more powerful and expensive Apache RTR 160 4V.
Ever since its inception back in 2006, the Apache RTR 160 has been the go-to motorcycle for buyers in the 150cc-200cc segment. Over the years, it has received only a few minor changes to help keep it relevant. The latest one was the introduction of a 'Race Edition White' colour, which is available alongside existing colours such as black, grey, red, yellow, white, matte red and matte blue.
Powering it is a 159.7cc air-cooled engine which produces 15.12PS of power at 8000rpm and 13.03Nm at 6500rpm, mated to a 5-speed gearbox. TVS has equipped the RTR 160 with a double-cradle frame, which is suspended upon telescopic forks at the front and twin gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Braking duties are handled by a 270mm petal disc at the front and a 130mm drum unit at the back (optional 200mm rear petal disc). Prices for the bike start from Rs 79,035 for the rear drum variant and go up to Rs 82,364 for the rear disc variant (both prices, ex-showroom Delhi).
The Apache RTR 160 competes with the Honda Xblade and Bajaj Pulsar 150 and Hero Xtreme Sports.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Expert Review
TVS has flagged off its first-ever international ride for TVS bike owners. This is the first time the Apache Owners Group (A.O.G.) will ride together outside India. The Apache RTR 160 is sold alongside the more powerful and expensive Apache RTR 160 4V. The design is quite similar to the first-gen Apache RTR 160 but has evolved quite well. Its latest update was the introduction of a 'Race Edition White' colour option. This is offered alongside existing colours such as black, grey, red, yellow, white, matte red and matte blue. It is available in four variants.
Powering the motorcycle is a 159.7cc, single-cylinder engine capable of producing 15.3PS of power and 13Nm of torque. This air-cooled engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox. It gets telescopic forks at the front and dual gas-charged shock absorbers at the rear. Braking is via a 270mm petal disc at the front and 130mm drum unit at the rear. However, the top-spec variant gets a 200mm rear disc as standard.
The Apache RTR 160 competes with the Honda Xblade, Bajaj Pulsar 150 and the Hero Xtreme Sports.
Prices for the Apache RTR 160 variants are:
Apache RTR 160 STD - Rs 78,760
Apache RTR 160 Rear Disc - Rs 81,089
Race Edition Apache RTR 160 Drum - Rs 79,760
Race Edition Apache RTR 160 Rear Disc - Rs 82,089
*all prices, ex-showroom Delhi
Design and Features
In terms of design, the 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. The seat is a single piece unit
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.
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.
