TVS has beaten the government’s mandated April 1, 2019 deadline by launching the Apache RTR 160 4V ABS. The ABS functions here as a single-channel unit. The Apache RTR 160 4V ABS will be about Rs 6,500 costlier (Rs 92,645 ex-showroom, Chennai) than its carburetted, non-abs sibling, the Apache RTR 160.
Additionally, the fuel-injected variant gets a similar price hike and will retail at Rs 99,645 (ex-showroom, Chennai). Besides the ABS, the bike stays mechanically unchanged. Power comes from the same 159.7cc, four-valve, single-cylinder engine that makes 16.5bhp on the fuel-injected bike and 16.2bhp on the carburetted iteration, with torque figures unchanged too, at 14.8Nm.
