TVS Apache RTR 160 Race Review

23 May, 2018 09:18 AM


TVS Apache RTR 160 Race Edition is a cosmetically enhanced version of standard RTR 160. It can be bought in White shade and offers running horse moniker in place of standard TVS logo like other RTR 160 variants. The second change comes in the form of Red stripes that can be spotted on its fuel tank, front fender, and rear under seat panels. No other changes were made on Apache RTR 160 Race Edition. TVS is simply replacing the stripes on standard models with Red ones and charging INR 1000 more on Race Edition is full unjustified for the Indian market.

Performance on Apache RTR 160 witnessed no change at all while design lines still feel younger in comparison to other bikes launched around its original entry. This is the only reason why they chose to refresh this moniker with Race Edition branding and bring higher total sales under Apache lineup. The series currently has one RTR 160 variant (six different versions by adding a disc, sticker set and base body shade), one RTR 180 (four versions, including one with dual channel ABS), one RTR 160 4V (three versions with FI in the top one) and one RTR 200 (three versions with optional ABS and FI).

They have made 16 versions out of 4 different engines in India. TVS Apache RTR 160 Race Edition is powered by a familiar 159.7cc, single cylinder engine producing 15.2 BHP at 8500 rpm and 13.1 Nm at 4000 rpm. The engine comes mated to a 5-speed gearbox and claims 118 kmph of top speed. As the bike remains identical in terms of design and styling, weight also remains the same at 137 kg. It is the most rider-centric product of this segment as you get 16 liters of fuel carrying capacity, resulting in more than 640 kilometers of riding range in a single fuel tank.
