TVS Apache RTR 160 Reviews (2)

Amongst all the sub-160cc bikes in India, the TVS Apache RTR 160 has always been the most performance-oriented of the lot. It has been on sale for nearly 8 years now in almost the same form, save for a major cosmetic redesign in 2012. Regardless, sales are still pretty strong, which is why TVS has refrained from phasing it out. So, compared to bikes of this day and age, does the Apache RTR 160 have what it takes to stand out? We take a closer look!
