TVS Motor Company has launched the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V in Bangladesh.
The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V will be the flagship offering from TVS Motor Company in Bangladesh. The motorcycle has been developed from the six-time INMRC (Indian National Motorcycle Racing Championship)-winning motorcycle, the TVS RTR 165. The bike features a 4-valve, oil-cooled motor that offers class-leading performance.
While the Indian-spec model is available in fuel injection and carburettor variants, the Bangladeshi-spec TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is offered only with a carburettor. It sources power from a 159.7 cc, 4-valve, single-cylinder, oil-cooled engine that is capable of pumping out a maximum power of 16.5 PS at 8,000 rpm while developing a peak torque of 14.8 Nm at 6,500 rpm. The engine is mated to a five-speed transmission.
Speaking at the launch of the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V, Mr R. Dilip, Senior VP - International Business, TVS Motor Company, said:
In over 10 years of its existence, the TVS Apache RTR series has created phenomenal customer delight. The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is an exciting addition to the TVS Apache RTR series. It is a powerful 160cc motorcycle and embodies the latest racing technology with best-in-class performance. We are confident that the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V will also delight customers in Bangladesh with its superior performance and dynamic racing look.
The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V displays its racing pedigree with a top speed of 113 km/h. The motorcycle receives a best-in-segment power-to-weight ratio, which enables it to sprint from 0-60 km/h in 4.73 seconds. The Apache RTR 160 4V is underpinned by the patented double-cradle split synchro stiff frame design, which offers high-speed stability and handling.
Suspension duties are carried out by telescopic forks at the front and a rear mono-shock, which are precision-tuned by taking inputs from TVS Racing riders. Stopping power comes from disc brakes at both the ends. The motorcycle is available in three colour options - Racing Red, Racing Blue and Racing Black. The bike features a fully-digital instrument cluster.
