It also gets ‘Glide Through Technology’ which bumps up revs at low-throttle openings and prevents the engine from stalling. The Apache RTR 160 2V is underpinned by a dual-cradle frame and features a telescopic fork and twin gas-charged shock absorbers. Braking is via a 270mm front petal disc and a 130mm rear drum, along with an optional rear 200mm petal disc. All three variants get single-channel ABS.

What is good and bad in Apache RTR 160?

  • Apache RTR 160 Positives

    TVS’ Glide Through Technology (GTT) makes low-speed crawling more effortless, Makes slightly more power and torque than before

  • Apache RTR 160 Negatives

    Engine is still vibey at higher rpm, Looks a bit dated,Is priced too close to the more powerful Apache RTR 160 4V

  • Expert's Conclusion

    While TVS has done well in reviving the Apache RTR 160 2V with a fuel-injected motor, it could have done better by offering it a new bodywork and additional features, something it has done with the Apache RTR 160 4V and Apache RTR 200 4V. However, given the RTR 160 2V BS6’s low pricing, it is a viable and relevant stepping stone into the 160cc segment.

  • It is regular bike

    It's okay to purchase an apache rtr 160, But you'll run into issues with the chain sprockets.Performance and other aspects are excellent.While riding it, You will feel safe, And this powerful bike comes with fantastic looks.Apache must raise the standard of their chain sprockets.Comparatively speaking, The market also offers other options at this price point.

  • Good Mileage And Performance Bike

    I was attracted to it because of the graphics, and the exhaust note but was carried away by the performance on offer too. Rides are very stable, but refinement becomes an issue at higher speeds. Short gearing, hence easy to make quick overtakes in the city while maintaining a good mileage (at one point, It gave me 58kmpl, currently at 50kmpl). I had it for the past 10 years but didn't have any issues with it. The only con is the stock tyre set, They offer no feedback on the front and the rear too feels like it'll lose the grip.

    Great experiences

    Tail piece

    The apache rtr 160, With 15.2 bhp, 270-mm petal shaped front disc brake, Engine with an all black treatment along with the alloy wheels and exhaust just looks awesome (reminds me of street hawk).The stripe runs from the front mudguard to the tank and all the way back to the tail piece is striking.An engine guard is nestled at the bottom of the engine.The side panels have a matt grey finish.The bike also had very easy handling comfort and most off all in a city like bangalore with mixed traffic conditions of either empty roads to hour long jams still gave 45+ according to my friend who owned an apache.

    Good product

    A good product by tvs motors.It will comes with good handlining and super comfortable seat.If you cruise it between 50 to 60 kmpl then you get a good mileage which is about 48 kmpl.This vehicle comes with huge demanding features as compare with other vehicle in this segment.A nice choice if you buy this one.
