Updated TVS Apache RTR 160 And 180 Launched.

The Apache RTR 160 and RTR 180 have been modified by TVS with new mechanical and aesthetic modifications. The RTR 160 is the entry-level model in the lineup, with prices ranging from 1.17 lakh for the rear drum brake variation to 1.12 lakh for the rear disc brake variant to 1.24 lakh for the top-end model with rear disc brake and Bluetooth.

The pricing of the Apache RTR 180 is 1.30 lakh for its single model.

Both bikes receive updated graphics and new Light-Emitting Diode (LED) headlights and taillights for aesthetic modifications. Gloss Black and Pearl White are the only colours offered for the 2022 TVS Apache RTR 180 series, while Gloss Black, Pearl White, Racing Red, Matte Blue, and T-Grey are the only colours offered for the 2022 TVS Apache RTR 160 series. Both motorcycles now come with a digital instrument cluster that is Bluetooth-enabled. The top-of-the-line Apache RTR 160 is the sole model that has this capability, although the RTR 180 includes it as standard. Three riding modes, Sport, Urban, and Rain, which modify power delivery and ABS settings, are another innovation.

The power-to-weight ratios of the motorcycles also get better. Instead of the 15.53hp at 8,400rpm and 13.9Nm of torque at 7,000rpm of the previous model, the RTR 160 now delivers 16.04hp at 8,750rpm and a max torque of 13.85Nm. The weight has decreased by 2 kg to 137 kg for the drum brake version and 138 kg for the disc brake version. In contrast, the RTR 180 delivers 17.02 horsepower at 8,500 rpm as opposed to the previous model's 16.79 horsepower at 8,5000 rpm. 15.50 Nm of torque are still available at 7000 rpm. The RTR 180 now has a kerb weight of 140 kg after losing 1 kilogram.

Mr. Vimal Sumbly, Head Business - Premium, TVS Motor Company, commented on the unveiling and stated, "To create market-leading products that resonate with our clients and racing aficionados, the TVS Apache series was based on the racing tradition of TVS Racing.
