TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is a very popular motorcycle in the Indian market. It is considered the benchmark in the 160cc sporty commuter segment. The Apache RTR 160 4V was first launched in the year 2018 and over the years, it has received several updates. Now, the bikemaker has just launched the new 2021 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V BS6 and here are all the details about it.
First of all, straight away, we will be talking about the changes in the new MY 2021 model. So, the new Apache RTR 160 4V gets mechanical updates and it makes more power and more torque than before.

Now, the updated BS6 motor churns out 17.63 PS of power at 9250 RPM and 14.73 Nm of peak torque at 7250 RPM.
