TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Highlights
A few months after launching a more powerful version of the bike, TVS has now hiked the prices of the RTR 160 4V yet again. With the premium of Rs 3,000, the asking price of the bike has shot up to Rs 1,11,565 for the drum variant and Rs 1,14,615 for the rear disc version, (both ex-showroom Delhi). You can learn all about the bike in our report here.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Price:
Currently, the asking price of the 2021 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is set at Rs 1,11,565 (rear drum brake variant) and Rs 1,14,615 (rear disc brake variant). Both prices are ex-showroom Delhi. The Apache RTR 160 4V is available in three colours: Racing Red, Metallic Blue, and Knight Black.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Features:
One of the main updates on the BS6 Apache RTR 160 4V was the addition of an LED headlamp. The tail lamp is LED, whereas the indicators are bulb-type. It gets a fully digital instrument cluster too. TVS has equipped the Apache 160 4V with Glide Through Technology, which is essentially a low-speed assist. It helps in crawling at low speeds, using just the clutch lever modulation. Thanks to the new Feather Touch Start, the engine cranks up quickly with a touch of the starter button. As far as safety is concerned, the bike gets a single-channel ABS. The Apache 160 4V also comes with an easy-to-reach single-piece handlebar and a single-piece seat for optimum comfort.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Engine:
Powering the 2021 Apache RTR 160 4V is the same 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine with an oil cooler. For 2021, the engine tuning has been revised to put out 17.63PS at 9250rpm and 14.73Nm at 7250rpm, 1.61PS and 0.61Nm more than the 2020 model. The motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Suspension & Brakes:
One of the main reasons why the Apache 160 4V is a sweet handler is its foundations. It employs a split-cradle frame with a telescopic front fork and a rear monoshock tuned by Showa. Brakes include a 270mm petal disc up front and either a 200mm petal disc or a 130mm drum at the rear. The bike rides on 17-inch alloy wheels with a 90-section front tyre. At the rear, the drum variant rolls on a 110-section tyre, while the disc version gets 130-section rubber. What will excite budding enthusiasts is that TVS has brought the kerb weight down by 2kg in the 2021 iteration of both the variants. The drum brake-equipped model weighs 145kg, whereas the version with the rear disc tips the scales at 147kg.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Rivals:
The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V competes against the Suzuki Gixxer, Yamaha FZ-S V3, Pulsar 160NS, and the Hero Xtreme 160R. Other alternatives in its price bracket include the Pulsar 180, Bajaj Avenger Street 160, and the Apache RTR 180.

Apache RTR 160 4V Expert Review
Ever since its launch, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been among our favourite motorcycles in the 150-160cc segment. To fend off competition TVS has been regularly updating the Apache RTR 160 4V and the bike received its latest update in 2021. As part of the new update, the TVS motorcycle receives a more powerful motor, drops 2kg and a new seat. Despite the additional updates, TVS didn’t hike the price of the bike and the 2021 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V drum variant retails for Rs 1,08,565 and the dual-disc brake variant will cost you Rs 1,11,615.
Design and Features
In terms of design, not much. The most prominent change in the updated 160 4V and the 200 4V compared to their BS4 counterparts is the new LED headlamp unit. To make things easier for you, here’s what’s new: The seat cover on the RTR 160 4V now gets a dual-tone treatment, in addition to which it gets new decals and a faux carbon-fibre finish on the mirrors. The 200 4V also gets new stickers and the same faux carbon-fibre finish on the mirrors as seen on its smaller sibling… and that’s about it. We feel TVS could have introduced new paint options or even opted for new decals to help the motorcycles stand apart from their BS4 versions.
TVS engineers have added some cool new segment-first features to the BS6-compliant motorcycles. For instance, the updated bikes now come with a feature called ‘Glide Through Traffic’ or GTT. Behind this marketing term lays a simple yet effective piece of engineering. This feature kind of works like torque-assist (as seen on some high-end motorcycles) where the rider doesn’t have to twist the throttle or use the clutch at low speeds and all that the rider has to do is roll off the throttle in a nice and smooth manner. This system worked brilliantly at TVS’ test track in Hosur where we could do about 7kmph in first gear, 12kmph in second and around 17kmph in third gear… without even touching the throttle. It even works with a pillion on board and on mildly steep inclines! However, we will have to wait and see how well this feature works in stop-and-go traffic situations.
Engine and Performance
From the outside, the BS6-compliant version of the 160 4V looks largely identical to the outgoing model. But TVS has heavily revised some components to make it adhere to the new emission norms. For instance, TVS’ engineers claim they have thoroughly tweaked the internals of the exhaust system. TVS has also redesigned the pistons and piston rings, in addition to which it gets a new intake, and even the valve timing has been changed. The 159.7cc single-cylinder, air-cooled, fuel-injected engine with an oil cooler produces 17.63PS and 14.73Nm. TVS had hiked the power output as part of its update in 2021 and the new bike is more powerful than the BS4 engine.
Braking and Handling
Built on a synchronous stiff frame, the RTR 160 4V offers a comfortable ride for both the rider and the pillion. Suspension setup comprises of telescopic front forks and a Showa monoshock at the rear. It’s equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels shod with a 90/90 tubeless tyre up front and a 130/70 tubeless tyre at the rear. Braking is handled by a 270mm petal front disc and 130mm drum brake at the rear in the base variant, while the dual disc variants feature a 200mm rear disc brake. TVS has equipped the Apache RTR 160 4V with single-channel ABS which they are calling it as Supermoto ABS.
Safety and Features
The RTR 160 4V is equipped with dual disc brakes in the Carburetor Dual Disc and Fi Dual Disc variants to efficiently handle braking at high speeds. The tyres are wide enough to provide better grip on slippery roads and instil confidence on corners. It also features Automatic Headlamp On (AHO), which keeps the headlamp turned on at all times. Additionally, the bike now features the safety net of single-channel ABS.
