The TVS Apache RTR 160 has been a mainstay in the Apache stable and on the racetrack. The
performance machine from the house of TVS Racing has racked up laurels in all forms of racing and
till this day continues to stand on the top step of the podium. The TVS Apache RTR 160 has
continuously evolved over the years, with cutting edge racing tech and countless laps on the track.
This latest version, spearheads the RTR badge into a new decade of performance.
The 2020 TVS Apache RTR 160 is powered by the BS-VI Race Tuned Fuel Injection (RT-Fi) technology. The intelligent system has optimized the engine, so that racers can experience the ultimate performance from the engine in any race condition.
The race derived engine is developed with a short stroke set up for lightning fast acceleration. The engine delivers intense torque and the high revving nature at the top end translates to greater racing speeds.
This First-in-segment feature allows for effortless launch off the line. With the slow release of the clutch, and with no throttle operation the race machine will effortlessly move off the line. The requirement of the synchronisation of the clutch lever and throttle lever is eliminated and this cuts down on engine stalls.
Cornering precision now meets exhilaration. The Single Channel Super-Moto ABS Unit has been conceived and perfected on the track, the system gives the racer total braking control while providing sharp feedback. The system ensures racers can now corner, razor-sharp.
Unparallel riding dynamics is achieved through the Synchronised stiff chassis. The spine of the racing machine provides stiffness for straight-line performance and flex for aggressive cornering. The setup provides the racer absolute confidence to race on the very edge.
Cornering aggression now meets agility. The setup features front telescopic oil damped forks, coupled with the rear monotube inverted gas filled 5 step adjustable shocks with rectangular swing arm.
The racer is now in complete control, with adjustable split clip on handle bars, an adaptable brake pedal and gear lever. The ergonomics are designed to make the racer feel like one with the track machine.
The signature LED's on the Apache have been an intimidating presence on the track. The LED light guide in the headlamp panel along with the pilot lamps produces an intense, raw, animalistic gaze. The throw from the headlamps cut through the harshest conditions to ensure clear visibility.
Designed with race-inspired carbon fiber cues, the countdown-on-ignition speedometer has a distinct blue-backlit display.
Something the competition on the track will get used to seeing, the tail lamps are dotted with a cluster of LED lights that create an unmistakable design.
Designed to cut through the air, the sharp tank cowl lowers drag while also reducing engine heat by 10°C.
The engine cowl is sculpted to be sharp, and angular to slice through the air while making a statement on the track.
In the heat of the race, the TVS Apache RTR is kept cool with the help of the tank scoops. These are designed to channel cool air to the engine and circulate the warm air out.
The sculpted lines of the tail cowl compliment the imposing design of the TVS Apache RTR 160. The design gives the tail a distinct and dynamic look.
MIG - monotube inverted gas - filled 5 step adjustable shocks provide unrelenting strength without compromising performance.
With adjustable Split clip on handle bars, adaptable brake pedal and gear levers, the rider makes the best of the incredible riding experience.
Unrelenting braking control comes from the 270mm front discs and 200mm rear disc. The unique design offers heat dissipation under heavy braking, to ensure that control is always with the racer.
Grip the track like never before, the Remora tyre stick to the asphalt with unyielding grip. The tyre offer superior acceleration and improved braking.
