TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Overall Review
TVS is a very renowned Indian brand that started its journey in Bangladesh for a long. Basically, TVS has become so popular here in the country due to their one top product Apache RTR 150. It is one of the most selling bikes in Bangladesh and still very much demanded no doubt. Though, in the recent time being the new TVS Apache RTR 160 has launched in Bangladesh a few days ago but rest features of the bike remains the same like an older version of RTR 150 considering looks, colors, and features.
Basically, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has come with all new features along with a new body design. It is much more aggressive than the older version of RTR. In Bangladesh, the most rivals of RTR 160 are Pulsar 150 DTSi, Hero Hunk, CB Trigger 150, and Hero Xtreme Sports. But considering looks, speed, mileage, and quick acceleration, no bike can beat RTR and which is why it has still dominated the market in the segment. But now in recent times when the government has approved 165 cc bikes in Bangladesh, there are two bikes Pulsar NS 160 and Honda CB Hornet 160R have launched in Bangladesh and to compete with them RTR is fallen behind considering the looks a little bit. So, TVS is planning to launch an all-new RTR 160 4V in Bangladesh whose design is inspired by RTR 200 4V. But there are some differences between the bike locations.
TVS Apache RTR 160 4V would be available in Bangladesh in three different versions. They are TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Carb – Front Disc, TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Carb – Front and Rear Disc, and TVS Apache RTR 160 4V EFI Front and Rear Disc. Considering the versions the price will be a little different. Let’s see the bike’s full specification review below.
Design & looks: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is full of amazing-looking sports bikes. It is a naked sports bike that has a muscular and fully aggressive and unique seating position. The seat is not split but pretty sporty. It has amazing looking exhaust with a rear tyre guard added. There is also a shared guard attached for the female pillion. The engine guard is aggressive just like the older version of RTR 160. The handlebar is completely sporty which will give you that feeling. From the front end, the bike looks gorgeous and it has a pretty unique and quite aggressive-looking headlamp. Overall, considering the looks, the bike would beat the older version of the RTR 160 no doubt.
Engine performance: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has powerful and reliable engine technology which is powered by a 159.7 cc engine. It consists of carburetor fuel delivery with the option of fuel injection technology. The bike has one cylinder and four-stroke technology added that can generate 16.28 Bhp max power at 8000 rpm and 14.8 Nm max torque at 6500 rpm. However, there is an oil cooling system added with ram air assist. It has both selves and kicks starting system added. The bike RTR 160 4V has upgraded quality quick acceleration that will prove its instant speed. Its top speed will be more than 132 kmph.
Dimensions & seating position: The bike TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a well-measured bike that has 2050 mm length, 790 mm width, and 1050 mm height. However, the seat height is 800 mm which has a bigger ground clearance which is 180 mm. The wheelbase is also bigger which is 1357 mm. The fuel tank capacity is 12 liters. The kerb weight of the bike is 143 kg which is completely bearable. The bike has a single-piece seating position which is not split like its elder brother RTR 200 4V. So, it is quite comfortable but suitable for just one pillion.
Suspension & Brakes: New TVS Apache RTR 160 has a completely updated suspension and the braking system added. There are front telescopic forks suspension added and the rear suspension is mono-shock. Earlier, in the older version of RTR 160 used twin shock rear suspensions but now, it has been updated in the new version. Besides, it has a front 270 mm hydraulic disc brake added but the rear brake is a 130 mm drum. Besides, there are two more versions of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V available where both hydraulic disc brakes are used. All would be available in Bangladesh hopefully.
Mileage: TVS Apache RTR 160 4V just launched in India and is yet to launch in Bangladesh. So, we are yet to know the accurate mileage of the bike. But, the bike has been fully updated considering its configuration. So, the mileage of the bike would be no less than 45 km on average. It would be updated soon here.
