TVS Apache RTR 160 4V now gets single channel ABS
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.
