    Dealers have started accepting bookings for the BS6 TVS Apache RTR 160.

    TVS has launched its BS6-compliant Apache RTR 160 at Rs 93,500 for the rear drum variant and at Rs 96,500 for the rear disc variant. This is an increase of around Rs 6,000 over the BS4-compliant model.

    Like every other BS6-compliant two-wheeler in India, the Apache RTR 160 has made the switch from a carburettor to a fuel-injection system. TVS tell us that this fuel-injection system is similar to the one we’ve seen on the new Apache 4Vs and it will also offer “Glide Through Technology for low-speed urban riding and enable a smooth and controlled ride.”

    What’s really interesting is that the new BS6-compliant Apache RTR 160 has gained power and torque over the older version. The 159.7cc, single-cylinder, two-valve motor now makes 15.5hp and 13.9Nm of torque, up from 15.1hp and 13Nm. That said, these figures do come in quite a bit higher in the rev range.

    While the six colour options remain the same (Pearl White, Matte Blue, Matte Red, Gloss Black, Gloss Red and T Grey), the RTR 160 does get new graphics that look sportier. Bookings for the motorcycle are now open at all TVS dealerships across the country.
