TVS Apache RTR 160 Highlights

Ever since its inception back in 2006, the Apache RTR 160 has been one of the go-to motorcycles for buyers in the 150cc-200cc segment. Over the years, it has received only a few minor changes, to keep it relevant. The latest one being the introduction of a 'Race Edition White' colour which is available alongside 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 Monotube Inverted Gas-filled (MIG) 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). It goes up against the Honda X-Blade and the Bajaj Pulsar 150.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Expert Review


For 2018, the Hosur-based manufacturer has introduced a new variant of the Apache RTR 160, called the 'Race Edition' which is essentially a paint job, and will be sold alongside the standard RTR 160 4V. While the update is only on the cosmetic front, we must say the white paint scheme with red stripes looks sweet! It continues to sport features like the semi-digital instrument console, LED DRLs and LED tail light.

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 shock absorbers at the rear. Handling braking duties is a front 270mm petal disc and a rear 130mm drum unit. However, with the top-spec variant, you get a 200mm rear disc as standard.

Here are all the prices - 

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

Design and Features

In terms of design, the RTR 160 sports a relatively conservative design as opposed to the 160 4V. However, its eyebrow-shaped DRLs and muscular fuel tank extensions do add some aggression. 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 competition 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 forks at the front and a monoshock at the rear. Braking setup comprises of a front 270mm petal disc brake and a 130mm drum unit at the rear (200mm disc optional). Its 17-inch wheels are shod with front 90/90 and rear 110/80 tubeless tyres. ABS has been given a miss here, and isn’t offered even as an optional accessory.

Safety and Features

While ABS is absent on the RTR 160, it's 270mm front petal disc and rear 130mm drum unit do the job of shedding speed in hairy situations decently. The tyres are also wide enough to provide enough grip.
