Vehicle Overview
Apache RTR 160 ABS is the youngest Apache on the TVS lineup currently. It rivals the likes of Bajaj Pulsar NS160, Yamaha FZS V3, Suzuki Gixxer 155, and Honda CB Hornet 160R. It is one of the most popular sport commuters among motorcycle buyers in India. TVS Motor now also offers a single-channel SuperMoto ABS unit in the Apache RTR 160. It is also one of the lightest bikes you can buy in India in this price range.NAHonda CB Trigger is a premium commuter that was discontinued due to low sales and demand for other Honda bikes from the same segment. It carried a 149.1cc, air cooled engine producing 14.35 BHP at 8500 rpm and 12.5 Nm at 6500 rpm. The engine comes mated to a five speed gearbox while the motorcycle rivals TVS Apache RTR 160, Yamaha FZ and Suzuki Gixxer series. CB Trigger came with full LCD instrument console and on option for rear disc as well as Combi Braking System (CBS). It weighs just 135 kg and performs decently for a top speed of 110 kmph.
