While the 17.55hp engine remains unchanged, Apache RTR 160 gets a new Pearl White colour, cosmetic upgrades and a ‘Bullpup’ exhaust claimed to improve the power-to-weight ratio and exhaust note.
TVS Motor Co has launched the 2023 Model Year Apache RTR 160 V special edition model, which gets a new ‘Pearl White’ colour and joins the existing Matte Black Special Edition. The new bike, priced at Rs 130,090 (ex-showroom Delhi) bears a few cosmetic differences over the standard motorcycle and has a new ‘Bullpup’ exhaust.
The new Pearl White colour covers most of the bodywork but what adds a dash of contrast is the red on the central portion of the fuel tank, seat and the rear wheel.
This special edition motorcycle comes with a new, beefier-looking exhaust muffler that TVS calls the ‘Bullpup’ exhaust, seemingly inspired by the Bullpup machine gun. The company says that while the exhaust muffler looks bigger, it is 1kg lighter than the one on the standard bike. This helps improve the power-to-weight ratio and also enhances the exhaust note, adds TVS. Besides this, the bike also gets adjustable levers as standard.
The Apache RTR 160 4V special edition is powered by the same 159.7cc air- and oil-cooled, single-cylinder engine which develops maximum power of 17.55hp and14.73 Nm torque.
