Apart from the latest leaked image of the 2020 TVS Apache RTR 200 4V, the 160cc variant of the same has also surfaced online. The newly revealed image of the next-gen model of the RTR 160 4V gives the viewers a clear view of the motorcycle’s mildly-facelifted design.

Taking the styling inspiration from its elder 200cc sibling, the updated motorcycle features the same LED headlight and DRLs setup at the front. The all-digital instrument console of the motorcycle will also get Bluetooth connectivity in addition to offering a turn-by-turn navigation feature. In addition to this, the 2020 Apache RTR 160 4V will also get an updated alloy wheel design similar to the one offered on the RTR 200 4V.

In terms of mechanical bits, the brand is expected to update the motorcycle with a BS6-compliant engine though the power and torque figures may vary as the brand will be making some changes to meet the upcoming emission norms.

The current-gen TVS Apache RTR 160 is powered by a 159.7 cc single-cylinder, oil-cooled 4-valve engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 16.8 HP at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 14.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed gearbox.

Coming to the hardware specifications, the motorcycle is expected to get similar traits as that of its current-gen model which includes the same dual-tone paint scheme in addition to same styling ergonomics. The suspension duties on the motorcycle are handled by conventional telescopic forks at the front while the rear features a monoshock absorber.

The Apache RTR 160 4V is equipped with a petal disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear, with an option of a disc brake in top-spec variants. There has been no confirmation of the official launch of the 2020 model as of yet though one can expect the brand to roll out its BS6 series post-October 2019.

The 2020 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been recently spotted testing on the Indian roads. The motorcycle has been subjected to a few cosmetic changes while the brand will be introducing the production variant of the motorcycle with a BS6-compliant engine since the new emission norms will be effective in India from April 1, 2020. The images surfaced online indicates that the brand has kept the initial body design of the motorcycle intact for the upcoming model.

The motorcycle spotted testing is seen with a halogen headlight while the upcoming BS6 model of the Apache RTR 200 was recently spotted with an LED headlight. Since the motorcycle is not yet in its production state, one can expect the brand to roll out the production model of the 2020 RTR 160 4V with an LED headlight. There aren’t many changes made to the motorcycle except making it compliant with the BS6 norms. One can expect some minor tweaks in the production variant itself though, the chassis and suspension are likely to remain the same.

Powering the current-gen TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that is capable of churning out a maximum power of 16.5 HP and an utmost torque of 14.8 Nm. The engine is mated to a 5-speed transmission. The BS6-compliant 2020 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is likely to get the same power and torque figures though the brand might discontinue the carburetted version of the motorcycle for its 2020 update.

To give a fresh look to the motorcycle, TVS is likely to launch it with new body graphics and colour schemes. The bike is expected to hit the Indian market in early 2020. Once launched in India, the 2020 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V will compete in the market with the likes of Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZS V3, Honda CB Hornet 160R, and the Suzuki Gixxer 155.

TVS Apache RTR Carbon Edition was recently made official for the public through the 2019 “Feria de las 2 Ruedas” in Colombia. The special edition comes with two different engine sizes and above all, both the engines are familiar to the Indian market with the name 160 4V and 200 4V. The Apache RTR 160 4V Carbon comes with a pure matt black shade and careful placement of stickers for a unique look. The variant seen here comes with a gloss black centre panel in place of the silver connecting piece while the fuel tank now flaunts an RTR moniker with an unusual effect that creates a shadow-like effect.

Another exclusive sticker is seen on the front fender while the lower section of the centre panel that connects the rear seat panel to the fuel tank is left silver for some reason. This can also be a reason to differentiate the same from the Apache RTR 200 4V Carbon as the model comes with identical paint finish and just minor points like the visor for exclusivity. However, the buyers of Apache RTR 160 4V can also opt for the same and leave nothing more than the silver panel (if not wrapped) to be the only differentiating factor among both the Apache RTR Carbon Edition models.

The front forks further have one visual difference as those seen on the RTR 200 variant are finished in a light golden shade while the RTR 160 comes with black forks. TVS Apache Carbon Edition can be launched in the Indian market for a slight premium over the regular version. The only factor that seems odd here is the lack of carbon fiber-inspired finish on the model, which definitely could have raised the appeal to the next level for such a good product. The Apache RTR 160 4V is available with a single channel ABS unit while the RTR 200 4V comes equipped with a dual-channel ABS unit as standard.

The first ride review of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V ABS from Dino’s Vault brought positive feedback to the most desirable Apache of India. The impressive acceleration, along with the level of refinement at 118 kph has made the RTR 160 4V ABS a great option for those who are looking into the entry-level performance segment. The ABS-equipped brakes are brilliant as Dino is seen explaining the braking technique to extract the maximum benefits from the single channel ABS.

RTR 160 4V ABS Top Speed Video

Applying 75-80% on the front and 20-25% on the rear brake will still not let your tire get locked and simultaneously, break speeds with great ease. The braking from 62 kph to standstill took just 1.7 seconds while another feature that he praised was the Showa suspension. The motorcycle feels solid at even 80 kph and never let you feel any sort of irritation from the complete chassis, brakes and suspension setup.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Fi ABS vs Yamaha FZS V3 Fi ABS (Quick Comparison): FZS V3 is not the only expensive 150cc streetfighter of India as RTR 160 4V now brings an even higher price tag variant with single channel ABS and fuel injection to the package.

The Apache can also be had in the base carburettor-fed version while FZ is available with fuel injection on both the single and dual tone shade options. The 149cc engine on the FZS is the least powerful one while Apache brings class-leading 16.8 HP of maximum output from the 159.7cc engine.

TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is now available with ABS in India on the fuel injected variant for INR 98,644 (ex-showroom). The price difference for the single-channel ABS is INR 6499 and thus, TVS is here with the first ever single channel unit in its lineup. The same price hike is expected to arrive on the carburetor-fed engine in the coming days. The introduction of single-channel ABS in India will help TVS place the Apache RTR 160 at an economical price point for the upcoming mandatory ABS norms.

As most brands will move into the 90k segment with their 150-160cc options, they will still have a motorcycle in the 80k segment. On the other hand, the base variant of Apache RTR 160 4V, if available with the same ABS unit, will effectively be priced at INR 89,644 (ex-showroom). TVS may not discontinue the model as showing a smaller ex-showroom price tag for their entry-level models has always been a strong point for Indian brands. Also, buyers with a slight extension of the budget can get their hands on the middle variant for INR 3000 of the price increase.

TVS may also switch the ABS unit on its Apache 180 to bring down the cost for their uniquely-placed model. However, doing the same in Apache 200 may not be a wise move since this is the only factor that makes RTR 200 better in comparison to its rivals. The Apache range of bikes starts from INR 79,370 and can be had with a dual disc variant at INR 81,699 (ex-showroom). The rivals for recently launched Apache RTR 160 4V includes Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZS V3, Honda CB Hornet 160R and Suzuki Gixxer.

Apache RTR 160 4V Fi Specs

  • Displacement – 159.7 cc
  • Maximum Power – 16.8 HP @ 8000 rpm
  • Maximum Torque – 14.8 NM @ 6500 rpm
  • Number of Cylinders – 1
  • Number of Gears – 5
  • Seat Height – 800 mm
  • Ground Clearance – 180 mm
  • Kerb/Wet Weight – 147 kg

Yamaha FZS V3 vs TVS Apache RTR 160 (Quick Comparison): Yamaha FZS V3 is an eligible rival to the frugal TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in India. The price range for both the models is different as Apache is yet to add the dual-channel ABS feature into their motorcycle. Yamaha FZS V3 comes with single channel ABS, all-new design and reliable 149cc engine. Apache 160 4V comes with a bigger 160cc engine and can be had with either fuel injection or the carburettor-fed version. As Yamaha offers fuel injection as standard, the top-spec model of Apache 160 4V is a direct rival to the new Yamaha FZS V3.

As Yamaha charged a decent sum for ABS and features like LED light, TVS fans can expect a price hike of INR 10,000 for the dual channel ABS model. If they plan a single channel unit for RTR 160 4V, the price can be kept under INR 1 lakh. Apache RTR 160 4V is powered by a 16.8 HP, 159.7cc oil-cooled engine. The value is much higher in comparison to the 13.2 HP of max output from FZS V3. The weight difference of 10 kg may help FZS riders compensate some power difference but still, the top end of rpm range will favour the new Apache for sure.

The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is the sole bike which you could consider if you are in the market looking for a bike with a 160cc engine for power riding. However, even though it is quite popular, there are some pros and cons which might confuse you whether it is worth the INR 82,810 (ex-showroom Delhi) price that the company is asking for it.

Apache RTR 160 4V Pros & Cons

Pros of Apache RTR 160 4V

1) Design and Build Quality: The Apache RTR 160 4V looks quite similar to its elder sibling, the RTR 200 4V. The tank shrouds add a muscular look to the bike and the naked headlamp goes on to snarl at anyone who crosses its path.

2) Comfort: It is quite a comfortable bike to ride in the city traffics as well on long commutes. The vibration levels on the bike are quite low at cruising speeds. They only filter through the frame over speeds of 80 kmph. The seat is well-cushioned and the seating position allows long commutes without any backaches. The single-seat provides ample room for both the rider and the pillion.

3) Performance: The 159.7cc single-cylinder 4-stroke oil-cooled engine provides the bike with a maximum power of 16.5 hp at 8,000 rpm and a peak torque of 14.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm. There is an option available for a fuel-injected engine as well. Through the 5-speed gearbox, the bike is able to achieve 0-60 kmph time of 4.73 seconds and 0-100 kmph time of 15.9 seconds. The top speed of the bike is 113 kmph. It is quite fuel efficient as well, providing a mileage of around 40-45 kmpl under mixed riding conditions.

4) Features: There is an engine kill switch which allows easy navigation through city traffic jams. Electric start on the bike is a convenience feature that allows easy startup of the bike. There is an all-digital console with several indicators on the instrument cluster.

5) Service Network: TVS has quite a wide network of dealerships and service centres all across India. This allows comfort of mind to the customer, knowing that he could take the bike anywhere across the country and would not face any issues.

6) Affordability: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has its prices starting at only INR 82,810 (ex-showroom Delhi), making it one of the most affordable bikes in the segment. There is a wide range of colour options available on the bike. For wider tires and rear disc brake, there is a mid-spec model (INR 85,810), while the top model (INR 91,810) comes equipped with a fuel-injected engine.

Cons of Apache RTR 160 4V

1) Lack of ABS: Even in 2018, the bike comes without the option for ABS. This comes as a disappointment since there are options at similar prices that come equipped with ABS.

2) Lack of a 6th gear: Given the performance of the bike, it is a disappointment that the transmission is only limited to 5 gears. The gears are tuned for shorter shifting as well, making it a hurdle while riding in city traffics.

3) Handlebar Positioning: For shorter customers, riding the bike would be quite a challenge. People over 6 feet will have no problem in riding the bike with a straight back. The seat height could have been raised for a more convenient ride.

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.

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.
