Highlights of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V

Design of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V

This street motorcycle’s most stunning and eye-catching feature is its all-new LED headlamp. It gets aggressively styled and gives a brilliant luminosity and an extended range of light coverage.

Apache 160 4V gets a pair of indicator lamps to its both sides. It features a pair of aggressively styled aerodynamic rear-view claw mirrors.

Unlike the RTR 160, this model doesn’t feature a visor and has a naked instrument cluster.

The aggressively designed muscular 12-litre tank and its extended cowl make the bike look sporty. The logo of a leaping horse and the graphics look attractive on the bike.

A new engine cowl with an aerodynamic design and new graphics keeps the engine safe. The ground clearance of 180mm also gives adequate room between the ground and the engine.

The dual-tone seat at the height of 790mm, gets optimised for more excellent grip and comfort.

The tail design is highly stylish, and the LED tail lamp gives a sleek and sharp look to the motorcycle.

The grab rail resembles a hyper geometrically shaped ‘Batarang’ and offers an excellent grabbing to pillion riders to hold on to it.

The racing graphics decals on the front mudguard and tails give the Apache RTR 160 4V a sporty look.

The motorcycle features a double-barrel exhaust system, which clears the combustion chamber quicker and enhances the engine’s performance. It also gives a signature racy exhaust sound.

Remora racing tyres provide an improved grip and enduring performance.
