The BS6 2020 TVS Apache RTR 160 2V has been recently launched in India at a price tag of INR 93,500 (ex-showroom) for the front disc brake variant while the rear disc brake variant will now be available in the market at a price tag of INR 96,500 (ex-showroom). Both the motorcycle variants have been priced with a premium of INR 5000 over their BS4 versions.
Powering the updated motorcycle is a 159.7cc, single-cylinder, fuel-injected engine that is now capable of offering maximum power of 15.3HP and a peak torque of 13.9Nm.

The motorcycle has been equipped with a similar LED tail lamp setup while the semi-digital instrument cluster also remains the same as compared to the BS4 variant.
