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.NAGixxer 155 is the toughest opponent within the naked street bikes of India. It offers value for money through its powerful engine, high reliability factor and considerably good economy. Gixxer carries a 154.9cc engine producing 14.1 HP and 14 Nm of torque. It weighs just 140 kg and sprints much quicker than the closest rival, Yamaha FZS. Suzuki recently updated the Gixxer 155 and the bike is now equipped with new shades, an all-LED headlight, new fuel tank, and a new all-digital instrument console.
