The Apache RTR 165 RP is priced at ₹1.45 Lakhs whereas the standard Apache 1604v is priced at ₹1.15 lakhs. With a difference of ₹30,000, the Apache 165 RP does offer a few notable changes over the standard one.


TVS Apache 160 4V draws power from a 159.7cc, single-cylinder, 4-valve, oil-cooled engine,  churns out 17.63 PS of peak power @9250  and 14.73 Nm torque of peak torque @7250 with 3 riding modes like sports urban and rain. Whereas the Race Performance gets a 164.9 cc single-cylinder 4 valve engine that churns out 19.2 PS at 10,000rpm and 14.2 Nm torque at 8,750 rpm. All this power is achieved thanks to a new cylinder head that increases intake by 35 percent, 15 percent bigger valves, a revised bore stroke ratio of 1.37, and a new dome piston for a higher compression ratio.
