Sources close to TVS Motor have confirmed that the company is ready to launch an updated version of the Apache RTR 160 in the coming months. There have been numerous pictures and videos on social media platforms that feature what appears to be the new Apache RTR 160. Although TVS have remained tight lipped about the launch, we have some information about the motorcycle. One of the major changes you can expect over the current model is the styling. We believe the new RTR 160 will sport a fresh styling in line with the Apache RTR 200 range. Additionally, the twin shock absorbers at the rear are most likely to be replaced by a single monoshock unit. Word on the street is that the motorcycle will be tuned to support performance riding. However, the changes in power and torque figures will be marginal.
If priced competitively, the RTR 160 might be the best-seller of the Apache range. Meanwhile, take a look at what our Editor, Aspi Bhathena, had to say about the all-new Apache RR 310.
