High-Performance Engine

The RTR 160 4V is fitted with a patented Oil-Cooled Combustion Chamber (O3C) Technology with a ram-air assist that reduces the engine heat map by an exceptional 10℃ while delivering high-revving performance with uncompromised durability. The lightweight nano friks-coated piston delivers a high-revving engine with linear throttle response and increased engine life. The bike is also fitted with a dual-barrel exhaust, which is developed using unique sound engineering techniques. The exhaust is made from bare stainless steel that provides the RTR 160 4V with a low-frequency sound that urges you to rev the engine harder.
