Apache is my beloved bike. Specially model of 2016, Just one word, Happy and acceptable bike. And my personal opinion is for those who love Apache RTR, than you should guys try to encourage this company because there are competitor in market, but Apache RTR is the best engineering of TVS company.

Best Features: Instrument cluster, aerodynamic scopes, ABS, roto petal disc, Superb synchronized racing Chassé for better control in 140 kmph speed. Good for money value.

Pros: First thing is it's aggressive look, and Superb performance in its segment, amazing and stylish aggressive look, mostly in this matte blue edition I believe this is best rear happy bike in india.

Cons: Nothing to compromise in 2016 year model

Really very amazing bike of its segment.... very smooth running .. i love drive ...
It is far better than pulsar and cbz extreme..
Exhaust sound truly racing
I measured its pickup ... it take 0 to 60 in 5.6 sec. It depends on how u shift gears at correct RPM ... it .be vary with other drivers
And top speed i measured is 114.
Since im daily drive it appox. 50 km in city... i guess it give me an average of appox. 40~43 bt is better for city .. at any spped u drive it gave u this figure avg.
Performance and handling is amazing .. u can cut or overtake any vehicle at any time... in any situation... since my apache 160 has double disc... so i can stop it at any speed...
I .. u enjoy its riding...
Only one disadvantage: above 60 ... it start vibrate.. ur legs start shaken.
Only this is problm... bt upto 60 it is.. one of the best bike... even my father enjoyed its driving... who was driving before it yamah RX100.

The Apache RTR 160 has already proved it's mattle in the mid level sports bike segment, the mattle blue is a special edition which comes with some royalty and grace of the color blue.
