    TVS has introduced a new matte red paint option for its Apache RTR 160 and RTR 180 in order to capitalise on the upcoming festive season. The standard RTR 160 Matte Red is priced at Rs 77,865 while the rear-disc version costs Rs 80,194, representing an increase of Rs 1,000 for both. The RTR 180 Matte Red, priced at Rs 81,833, is also dearer by Rs 1,000 than the standard version.

    The new paint finish will adorn the fuel tank, engine cowl and the rear frame of the two motorcycles. While the smaller-engined RTR 160 gets red rim stickers, the RTR 180 gets the same in white. Both the bikes are also offered in other colour options like white, black, grey, red, yellow and matte blue, with the RTR 180, additionally, getting matte black and matte grey colours as well.

    Apart from the new colour scheme, the Apache RTR range remains unchanged. The RTR 160 sports a 159.7cc single-cylinder motor making 15.2hp and 13.1Nm of torque, while the RTR 180 is powered by a 177.4cc single-cylinder mill producing 17hp and 15.5Nm of peak torque. Both engines are mated to a five-speed gearbox.

    The Apache RTR 160 rivals the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar NS160, the Suzuki Gixxer and the Honda CB160 Hornet, while the larger Apache RTR 180 competes against the likes of the Bajaj Pulsar NS200 and the Yamaha FZ25.
