Best in the league

TVS apache 160 RTR is the best in the 160 CC category, in terms of performance, mileage and speed. With an aggressive build and aero dynamics this is the best in its class.
The RTR 160 has been a decent looking motorcycle with proportionate design and styling. The latest iteration of the RTR had its tryst with aggressive styling.

Engine Performance, Fuel Economy and Gearbox
The 160cc 15.4BHP mill has been doing its duty on the RTR pretty well. The oversquare engine is free revving and revs cleanly upto the red-line of 9000RPM for the stock engine. Though there is no rev limiter, you can feel the power dip beyong 9500RPM. The power delivery is progressive through the rev range and the Racing Throttle Response system helps the bike performm well in the Mid Range. One thing that dents the RTR experience are the engine vibrations that creep in near 5000RPM and are felt right up to the red line.

Ride Quality & Handling
The racing inspired two-piece handle bars are well positioned giving the rider an aggressive posture. The ergonomics of the motorcyle are track oriented and the power delivery of the bike does justice to it. The motorcycle design is bang on target giving the bike a proper balance and stability on straight line as well as around corners. In city traffic, in spite of the two-piece handle bar, the bike is very easy to maneouvre and the good mid-range reponse makes it a delight to ride. The vibrations peak between 5000RPM to 6000RPM, which is sadly the normal riding rev range inIndia and hence long rides on this bike make your palms go numb. The seat is soft and more comfortable in comparison wit its competitors. The brakes are pretty much enough for the bike but the TVS tyres do not inspire comfidence.

Final Words
The TVS RTR 160 is a small, puny and powerful bike which is a great package for on road as well as track riding. The engine is a gem in terms of power delivery and longevity. The fuel economy is good. If TVS can work around the NVH of teh engine, the motorcycle will be a true piece of art.
