Onto the bike, The ABS option has only been launched for the Fi variant and not for the carb model. The bike has no new changes besides a single channel ABS. The Apache RTR 160 4v has now become the most well-equipped bike in the 160cc segment. It has fuel injection, ABS, KYB suspensions and a 4-valve engine.
The only other 4-valve engine in the 160cc class belongs to Bajaj Pulsar NS 160. But it does not have a fuel injection system. Yamaha FZ 3.0 is a fuel injected ABS enabled motorcycle but its engine makes a pitiful amount of power and torque.
Apache RTR160 4v is also not an absolutely perfect machine, Its thin front forks can cause a little bit of highway instability if you’re stuck in heavy crosswinds. However, it is currently the best mixture of performance, looks and affordability.
So, currently, the TVS Apache RTR 160 4v ABS offers the best bang out of your buck in 160cc segment. It has instant power delivery, comfortable seating position and the added safety of an ABS system.
The current price of the TVS Apache RTR 160 4v ABS is Rs. 99,645 (ex-showroom).
