TVS Apache RP 165 Detailed Review

Apache RP 165 Looks And Styling 9.5 /10

By the looks of it, it is a sporty affair altogether. From the handlebars to the dual-barrel exhaust,from the streamlined dual-tone seating to the sharp protruding single-pod headlamp. Since the RP 125 has been crafted to adapt it from a road bike to a Racing Performsnce( 165 ‘RP’), the styling keeps itself in the same line as well. TVS Motors races in the 165cc Pro Stock category at the Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship (INMRC). To comply with the rules of the race, it needs to incorporate the engine from one of its a road bikes of 165 cc. Although it share the looks with the 160 4V, it gets its unique identification paint job. The red, white and blue combination feels sporty and distinguishes itself from the rest of the lineup. Rustic red alloy wheels with a blacked out front suspension adds to the visual appeal of this bike All in all, the glimpse of it comes across as sporty, aggressive, and sweet for the racer’s taste out there. With tailight mounted on the seating end, just below the handlebars, it confirms to the styling specific to this segment.Although some might have different opinions when it comes to the rear profile, but for us, this is no deal breaker.

Apache RP 165 Dimension 9 /10

Coming to the dimensions, it is pretty much identical to the 160 4V. 2035 mm in length with 1050 mm of height, it leave an impact in terms of road presence. The wheelbase stands at 1357
mm with a decent ground clearance of 180 mm. Meanwhile the saddle height comes out to be 800 mm. These dimensions coupled with the styling of the bike, leaves a distinct impact on its
road presence, in a good way. The kerb weight or the actual weight is marked at 148 kg, which is fairly manageable. On top of this, the fuel tank capacity stands at 12 litres only. Coming to the tyres, both rear and front are 17-inch alloys with disc brakes on both. The front is a 270 mm disc while the rear disc is a 240 mm unit. The cumulative effect of these combinations imparts
effective breaking dynamics, given that this is a racing performance edition, and is compatible for its use case.

Apache RP 165 Feature 9.5 /10

Although the Racing Peformance Edition was expected to bring some new features to the road, it still carry forwards the same tech from the standard version. The features list is the exact
same as the Apache 160 4V. It gets a monopod LED headlamp with a LED tailamp. Fully digital instrument cluster and a single-channel ABS. The max. Speed is claimed to be 123 km/hr which is monitored on the digital display. The display unit, hoever, misses out on the gear position indicator and also no riding modes. Meanwhile, Riding modes indicator is something that is
available on the TVS NTORQ 125 Racer XP scooter already. The instrument cluster on the TVS Apache RTR 165 RP regsiers the speed,distance and also displas the 0-60 km/hr acceleration
time. The Mode and Select buttons are placed on either sides of the cluster.

Apache RP 165 Engine 9 /10

This is where the RP 165’s all the shine and glory resides. It is this department that the RP 165 was reincarnated. The engine mill is an upgraded 164.9 cc, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine
that is starkly different from the 160 4V. The cylinder head on this one is bigger to accommodate bigger valves when compared to the standard version. Also, the cams are now bigger, that in fact allows 35 % more inflow for an increased level of performance. The pistons are also different than the standard variant, both in shape and design. All this results in 18.9bhp of power at 10,000rpm and 14.2Nm of peak torque at 8,750rpm. While the standard model makes 17.4bhp at 9,250rpm and 14.73Nm at 7,250rpm, the TVS Apache RTR 165 RP clearly takes the charge in performance. The vibrations level are well managed, but emerges when you take it on a throttling ride. Still, they are not on the levels to be considered a deal breaker. With an oil-cooled engine, the engine is capable to be a little more efficient. With just 200 of these made, the exclusivity will be an icing on the cake for the rider. What makes it even more special? The batch is already sold out !
