All-new TVS Apache RTR 160 to be launched next year in India

TVS has just launched the all-new Apache RR 310S in India. Now TVS is concentrating on the entry-level Apache, and the bike is expected to be the next big launch from the Indian manufacturer. TVS has already started testing the upcoming bike and according to a report, it will be an all-new bike and will not be a mere facelift model.

TVS launched new bikes to the top layer of the Apache series in the form of Apache RTR 200 4V and Apache RR 310S, but the entry-level bikes like TVS RTR 160 and the RTR 180 have not received many updates in the past few years. TVS will now bring an all-new version of the Apache RTR 160 that will get major updates in terms of chassis, body and the way it looks.

The motorcycle has been caught on test already the new design looks inspired from the Apache RTR 200 4V. The images show a sharper body design and a new headlamp cluster too. The chassis also seems to be brand new alongside the suspension system. Currently, the Apache RTR 160 gets twin shock absorbers at the rear, with the update, we expect a monoshock in the rear alongside split seats instead of a single bench. It will become much sportier than the current version. The bike also gets LED tail lamp, silver inserts on the side panel, front disc brake, rear drum brake and more.

The current line of engines is also expected to be re-tuned to churn our more power and efficiency with the update. TVS Apache 160 already looks outdated, especially because of the rivals like Bajaj Pulsar NS 160, Suzuki Gixxer, Honda Hornet 160, Yamaha FZ-S FI and more. TVS will also launch the updated Apache RTR 180 soon after the Apache 160 and it is also expected to follow the same updates as the entry-level Apache.
