While the new bike won’t get an all-new engine, the motor will be re-turned to churn out more power and torque. We expect a peak power-torque of 16 BHP-14 Nm. This will make the bike’s performance at par with that of the new Bajaj Pulsar NS 160. The Apaches have been lighter than the Pulsars, and things shouldn’t change with the new RTR 160 and the NS 160. All this means that there are very good chances of the new Apache RTR 160 being quicker and faster than the NS 160. We expect a top speed of at least 125 KMPH and a 0-100 KMPH time of less than 13 seconds. ABS should be optional
2018 TVS Apache RTR160 Mileage
As the specifications will not see a huge bump in power, even the mileage won’t see any difference. The RTR 160 2018 model should deliver as much as 45 KMPL on the highway.
