The new TVS Apache RTR 160 has been spotted testing on public roads on multiple occasions, giving us a few clues on what to expect from the Honda CB Hornet 160R and the Suzuki Gixxer 155 rival. The upcoming Apache RTR 160 will draw its styling cues from its elder sibling, the Apache 200. A few changes as compared to the latter will include a single piece seat over the split seat setup and brushed silver side panels instead of the black coloured panel. The model will also carry forward a few features such as the fully digital instrument cluster, mono shock suspension and LED tail lights.

Details regarding the engine specifications of the 2018 TVS Apache RTR 160 remain unknown at the moment although the model is likely to produce a slightly higher power output than that of the outgoing engine which produces 15.21 PS of power and  13 Nm of torque. Expect the model to continue using the five speed transmission. The previous generation of the Apache 160 did not feature ABS, even as an option although TVS could offer it as standard in lieu of the upcoming safety norms.
