TVS Apache RTR 160 comes with a 2-valve head motor that offers slightly less output than its 4-valve head sibling
The entry-level Apache continues to rake in a sizeable volume even after more than fifteen years in the market. However, unlike its 4V siblings, the 2-Valve head Apache makes a little less power and also comes with fewer gizmos on offer. In terms of features, Apache RTR 160 is offered with a semi-digital instrument cluster, LED DRLs and single-channel ABS.
It is powered by a simple 159cc, single-cylinder, air-cooled engine with a 2-valve head that makes 15.3 bhp and 13.9 Nm of peak torque. This motor is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The RTR 160 2V hasn’t undergone any major updates in recent times. On the other hand, its 4-valve sibling has undergone multiple updates in the past couple of years.
