TVS Apache RTR 160 4V vs Honda CB Hornet 160R: At present, the base model of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is priced at INR 82,810. This starting price is quoted for a very basic version that comes with a single front disc brake and rear 110/80 tyre as standard. Buyers can consider going for another variant at INR 85,810. This one uses wider 130/70 rear tyre with 200mm petal disc brake on the wheel.

If not considering these two, TVS is also offering a variant with fuel injection for 91,810. The least equipped version weighs 143 kg while top spec variant tips the scale at 147 kg. Honda CB Hornet has also entered its next generation with updated variant for INR 85,943. The price mentioned here is for single front disc variant. Rear disc variant comes with CBS as standard. This one can be bought for INR 90,443.

Honda CB Hornet 160R ABS STD is priced at INR 91,443 while Hornet 160R ABS DLX is priced at INR 93,943. It seems like DLX variant comes with rear wheel disc while STD uses a single front disc brake with ABS only. TVS Apache RTR 160 is good for 16.8 HP and 14.8 Nm while Honda CB Hornet 160R produces 14.9 BHP and 14.5 Nm.

This makes Apache RTR 160 4V the most powerful option that you can buy in this segment. Top speed for Apache RTR 160 4V is 114 kmph. It takes just 15.9 seconds to reach 100 kmph from standstill, which could have been even better if it weighed few kilograms less than its present weight. Both bikes use 5-speed manual gearbox as standard. Hornet 160R comes with LED front headlight. TVS has skipped the ABS option for now but if they plan to discontinue the existing RTR 180, dual channel ABS will be then offered on RTR 160 4V for sure.

TVS Motor is India’s third largest brand in terms of sales volume. It was once behind Bajaj Auto but, gained more traction since the launch of Jupiter and Apache 160 4V. TVS Motor is a part of TVS group that deals in financial, automotive, manufacturing and many other prominent sectors of Indian industry. Apart from making motorcycles and scooters, TVS also deals in moped (TVS XL) and three-wheeler sales. The brand recently gained media attention with the launch of Apache 160 4V in India. The powerful TVS motorcycle costs INR 82,810 and comes in three different variants.

TVS Apache RR 310 with Akrapovic Exhaust System

TVS Apache range comes with RR 310, RTR 200, RTR 180 and RTR 160 as other members. The range of motorcycles spread well to the basic level with Victor, Star City and Sport as more economical options. Scooters on offer are Jupiter, Zest, Scooty Pep+ and Wego. Apache RR310, the most powerful TVS motorcycle ever built, comes with a powerful 312.2cc, liquid cooled and fuel injected engine. The output is quite satisfactory at 34 HP @ 9700 rpm and 27.3 NM @ 7700 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox. It comes with class-leading features like bi-LED projectors and USD forks.

TVS Ntorq 125 successfully sold 20,820 units in September 2018, leaving rivals shocked with such impressive number during the first year of its existence. The feature loaded scooter is great for those who look more into riding than just going from one place to another. The number brought an official entry for Ntorq into the top 10 scooters of India. Activa never differentiates the number of units for 125cc variant separately while Grazia and Access are the only 125cc options among top sellers. It seems that Ntorq 125 will soon be on the top of the 125cc list.

TVS Ntorq 125

TVS Ntorq 125 is priced at INR 59,712 and comes powered by a 124.79cc, single cylinder engine producing 10.5 Nm at 5500 rpm. It comes mated to an automatic gearbox. Power value is also impressive at 9.4 HP. It weighs 116 kg and carries a city-specific 5-liter fuel tank. TVS shares the 12-inch tires with Jupiter while alloy wheel design on Ntorq is quite unique in itself. It comes with smartphone integration feature and thus, no other scooter could beat Ntorq in terms of features on offer. A rider gets front disc brake as standard on the scooter.

TVS is India’s most innovative brand in two-wheeler space as they have launched many all new products in the country in the last few months. Not just that, they offered slipper clutch on Apache RTR 200 and introduced new, much more powerful engine on Apache RTR 160 4V. Their pricing (except for RR 310) is quite interesting as buyers get most features at very reasonable price differences. For the best example, they offer dual-channel ABS on Apache RTR 180 for just INR 10,000. Most brands are offering single wheel ABS for even more price than their dual channel unit.

TVS Ntorq 125 Specs

  • Engine: 124.79 cc, 4 stroke, Single Cylinder, Air Cooled, OHC
  • Maximum Power: 9.4 HP @ 7500 rpm
  • Maximum Torque: 10.5 Nm @ 5500 rpm
  • Air Filter: Dry Paper + Foam filter
  • Scooter Frame: High Rigidity Under Bone Rectangular Tube Type
  • Dimensions (LxWxH): 1865 mm x 710 mm x 1160 mm
  • Wheelbase: 1285 mm
  • Ground Clearance: 155 mm
  • Fuel Tank: 5.0 Litre
  • Kerb Weight: 116.1 Kg
  • Front Suspension: Telescopic Suspension
  • Rear Suspension: Gas filled Hydraulic Type Coil Spring Shock Absorber
  • Front Tyre: 100/80-12 (Tubeless)
  • Rear Tyre: 110/80-12 (Tubeless)
  • Front Brake: 220 mm Disc

The journey of TVS Apache RR 310 is not going good in the Indian market, with the number of units sold falling and rising marginally each month in the last quarter. It once touched 983 units and brought hope to the brand but various factors resulted in the downfall of the RR brand. In April 2018, TVS registered 862 units for their flagship motorcycle. Most of these were the units delivered for the bookings at INR 2.15 lakh.

Then came the price hike of INR 8,000 and most buyers were left disappointed with the new price tag. Still, the buyers in Kerala can still have the impressive machine for INR 1,99,999. All prices are ex-showroom Delhi. TVS Apache RR 310 sold 4,621 units in last 10 months while rivals were also good for similar numbers, or when seen precisely, even lower than this figure. TVS shares the engine of RR 310 with BMW G310 series.

Apache RR 310 comes in Red and Matte Black shade as stock. It rivals KTM RC390 and Honda CBR250R around its segment, with both rivals getting either benefit of more power or lower price than the flagship racer. Here is a detailed sales report for RR 310:

  • December 2017 – 66 units (minimum)
  • January 2018 – 242 units
  • February 2018 – 353 units
  • March 2018 – 983 units (maximum)
  • April 2018 – 862 units
  • May 2018 – 595 units
  • June 2018 – 476 units
  • July 2018 – 351 units
  • August 2018 – 343 units
  • September 2018 – 350 units

TVS should have placed the same under INR 2 lakh for the entire country, further not limiting the sales to a limited number of dealerships in the initial days. The move not just lowered the overall social hype but also forced many to consider KTM RC series bike for their extensive sales network, spread across 350-touch-points in the country.

TVS Apache RR 310 HP4 Race Edition is a fusion between two impressive labels, both of which are strategic partners for lightweight motorcycles in India. However, HP4 Race is more like a dream for entire BMW-Motorrad fan list, priced at INR 85 lakh and still getting track label on its existence. The rider here used the tricolor theme from the HP4 Race on his Apache RR 310, even finishing the side fairing in dual tone White upper and Black lower finish to mimic the fairing seen on the flagship racer. Adding fins to the fairing would have lowered the cooling efficiency of the RR 310 and thus, were missed on the bike.

TVS Apache RR 310 HP4 Race Edition

The upper section comes with BMW moniker, HP4 Race branding, Blue and Red inserts along the naming and Red RR frame. The flowing side panel is White while space between the front and rear seat is finished in the Blue shade. The front golden forks are matching with the overall profile, available as stock and looking as impressive as they look on liter-class superbikes.

Apache RR 310 HP4 Race Edition is Equipped with Kawasaki Z800 Exhaust

Another great addition to the package is a Kawasaki Z800’s exhaust system, resulting in a roaring sound and unique right side profile. The cost of this exhaust system is said to be over INR 1 lakh. TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312cc, single-cylinder engine, producing 34HP of max power and 27.3 Nm of torque. The same motor is employed in BMW G310R and G310GS, priced at INR 2.99 lakh and INR 3.49 lakh respectively. At present, the ex-showroom price of Apache RR 310 is INR 2.23 lakh in Delhi.

Earlier this year, Meghdatt Varachhiya unveiled his digital renderings where he finished the TVS Apache RR 310 in 6 mind-blowing custom shades. As the motorcycle is only available in Red and Matt Black shade officially, Meghdatt has imagined this SuperSport machine in these six shades:

  1. Pearl White
  2. Dual Tone Black/Grey
  3. Bright Blue
  4. Bright Yellow
  5. Red with Gold Alloy Wheels
  6. Camouflaged Edition

He has neatly finished each of them with matching frame shade and rear tyre stand. He is an automotive design student and loves working digitally on bikes and cars. He has even made some mind blowing drawings of upcoming products and rendered some stock products into off-road and race specific examples. Apache RR310 may come in new colors next year but one can get the beautiful machine wrapped in Meghdatt’s suggested schemes for exclusivity. TVS Apache RR 310 is powered by a 312.2cc, single cylinder engine producing 34 HP at 9700 rpm and 27.2 Nm at 7700 rpm. It comes mated to a 6-speed gearbox.

When every manufacturer in India is willing to get a chunk of scooter sales in the premium 150cc segment, why would TVS stay behind and see others enjoy the feast? Going right with this notion, TVS Graphite 150 is expected to launch in the first quarter of next fiscal. It has been spotted testing on various occasions and none other than Aprilia SR150 was seen chasing the power scooter. It was seen back at Auto Expo 2014 and getting a production version in 2019 would be a great idea. It will support triple digit speeds with ease as the SR150, that was once chasing the camouflaged scooter, was traveling at 110 kph.

TVS Graphite 150
TVS Graphite 150 May Launch in India by Mid-2019

Not even a single detail regarding engine specs leaked in last four years by TVS. It made more sense as they first entered the 125cc segment and now, using the same frame and body basics would be a great idea for the 150cc scooter. The decision to target the lesser selling Vespa and Aprilia range of scooters is also a brave step. Only these two offer a 150cc engine under the seat while all others are over at 125cc. TVS is expected to use the fully digital instrument console from Ntorq 125 and better braking than any other scooter presently on offer in their lineup. The front is seen with a small visor and disc brake on the Graphite.

TVS Graphite 150

The scooter is expected to get priced around INR 68,000 and will feature ABS as most TVS performance models. It will be their first attempt into the performance scooter segment as the primary focus of TVS stands on Jupiter, Apache and XL series of products. All three of them are the highest selling products of all time in the company lineup. TVS Motor is currently the third largest manufacturer in terms of overall sales. It still has a long way to go as the first two brands have almost double the sale as TVS. The booming scooter market offers a great chance.

TVS Apache RTR 200 is one of the most exciting bikes that one could buy in 2018. It is powered by a 197.75 cc, single cylinder motor producing 20.23 BHP for the carburetor fed system. The fuel injected version develops 20.73 BHP. The torque value remains same at 18.1 Nm.

This engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and the bike weighs 149 kg. Apache RTR 4V offers a ground clearance of 180mm while the seat height is 800 mm. It completes a 0-100 kmph sprint in 12 seconds while 0-2 seconds can let the odometer read 38 kmph of speed. The 0-60 kmph comes in just 3.9 seconds.

Apache RTR 200 Pros & Cons

Pros of Apache RTR 200

1. It offers a value for money package as a 200cc motorcycle at a starting price of INR 97,005 (ex-showroom Delhi) and can easily be availed instead of 150cc options like Fazer and Gixxer SF. It even undercuts the 200cc rivals by a big margin in terms of price.

2. Apache 200 comes with an advanced white back-lit, fully digital instrument console. The fully loaded LCD screen offers clear visibility and displays all of the required information.

3. The bike comes with loads of options like fuel injection, ABS and Pirelli tyres (for INR 5,000). The customers can choose their Apache by counting priorities as ABS comes at INR 1,09,705 while Fi commands INR 1,10,805 worth price tag.

4. The aggressive front headlight uses an impressive pair of DRLs. This makes the bike more attractive as well as safe in rough weather. It even comes with a small wind deflector.

5. Stainless steel double barrel exhaust on the new Apache comes with a catalytic converter for matching the strict emission norms in India.

6. Even after being a naked street bike, the on-track performance of Apache is remarkable. It has a nice frame which allows it to be tight on corners and fully planted on the straight track.

7. The most recent inclusion of slipper clutch has further raised its track-worthy performance. Also, this offers Apache riders lighter clutch when riding in heavy traffic.

Cons of TVS Apache RTR 200

1. Gloss shades are not offered for every matt shade available on Apache 200.

2. The 5-speed gearbox could have been upgraded to a more advanced 6-speed unit.

3. The engine is still air+oil cooled like the Pulsar 220F. It would have been better if TVS offered a proper liquid-cooled engine like Pulsar NS200.

4. RTR 200 feels under-powered in comparison to its direct rival NS200.
