Disc brakes are standard on both wheels of the FI version while the carbed version uses a disc brake only on the front.
With the launch of the new variant, the company aims to sell five lakh units of Apache range of models during this financial year, a top company official said. "We are confident that the new TVS Apache RTR 160 4V will set the precedence with its superior performance and dynamic racing look". The new TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is an exciting addition to the TVS Apache RTR series.
The new Apache comes with a price tag of Rs 81,490 for a carburetor variant and Rs 89,990 (Ex-Showroom Delhi) for its EFI model. The bike claims a top speed of 114kmph for the fuel injected trim while that of the base variant is 113kmph. The new TVS Apache RTR 160 competes with the Yamaha FZ16, the Suzuki Gixxer and the Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 in India's entry-level sporty motorcycle category. It is most powerful 160cc motorcycle in India and embodies the latest racing technology with best-in-class performance. And the winning streak on the road-going RTR 160 will largely be because of its 159.7 cc 4-valve engine which makes up to 16.57 bhp@8000 rpm (Fi; carb-ed model makes about 16.2 bhp) and 1.51 kgm@6500 rpm.
With a fully-digital speedometer, the design of the new TVS Apache RTR 160 4V offers sleek styling along with the race-spec aspects of the INMRC race machine - RTR 165. The EFi version can do 0-60kmph in 4.8 seconds while the carb version takes 4.73 seconds to do the same.
This is the third premium motorcycle from TVS in the last three months after the Apache RR 310 and the Apache RTR 200 4V Race Edition 2.0 (with slipper clutch).
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V comes with the TVS Motor Company patented Double-cradle Split Synchro Stiff Frame Design, which gives excellent high-speed stability and best-in-class handling on/off- track.
TVS Motor Company's Joint MD, Sudarshan Venu said, "The TVS Apache series has always embodied pure racing performance".
