TVS APACHE RTR 160 4V OVERVIEW

The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is one of the favorite motorcycles in the 150-160cc market since its inception. To keep up with the competition, TVS is frequently updating it, with the most recent update in 2021. One of the key upgrades to the bike is the inclusion of an LED headlamp. The tail lamp is an LED, however the indicators remain bulb-type. Glide Through Technology, which is effectively a low-speed assist, is incorporated as well as an entirely digital instrument cluster.

The same 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled fuel-injected engine with an oil cooler powers the 2021 RTR 160 4V. The engine tuning for 2021 has been updated to produce 17.63PS at 9250rpm and 14.73Nm at 7250rpm, an increase of 1.61PS and 0.61Nm over the 2020 model. A 5-speed gearbox is connected with the motor.

It aids in crawling at low speeds by modulating the clutch lever. The engine starts swiftly with a touch of the starter button, thanks to the innovative Feather Touch Start. In terms of safety, the bike is equipped with a single-channel ABS system. It has a single-piece handlebar that is easy to reach and a single-piece seat for added comfort.

The Apache 160 4V’s foundations are one of the key reasons for its success. It has a split-cradle frame, telescopic front fork, and Showa-tuned rear mono-shock. The front brakes are a 270mm petal disc, while the rear brakes are either a 200mm petal disc or a 130mm drum. The bike is equipped with 17-inch alloy wheels and a front tyre with a 90-section.

The price/- of the 2021 RTR 160 4V is now fixed at Rs 1,08,565 (rear drum brake variant) and Rs 1,11,615 (front drum brake variant) (EX showroom price). Racing Red, Metallic Blue, and Knight Black are the three colors available.
