TVS has launched the new Apache RTR series in a new matte red colour theme. Both the Apache RTR 160 and RTR 180 are being offered in the matte red shade, with matte grey and white decals on the tank extensions. Except for some cosmetic enhancement, the rest of the bike remains mechanically unchanged.

The TVS Apache RTR 160 is powered by a 159.7cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine that is paired with a 5-speed gearbox. The engine claims to develop 15.21 PS of power at 8500rpm and a peak torque of 13.1 Nm at 4000 rpm. It gets conventional forks up front and twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers for the suspension duties. It features a petal disc brake at the front and a drum brake at the rear. There is also an optional disc brake at the rear.

The RTR 180 is equipped with a 177.4cc air-cooled single-cylinder engine that is mated to a 5-speed gearbox and claims to produce a peak power of 17.02 PS at 8500 rpm and a peak torque of 15.5 Nm at 6500rpm. It gets conventional front forks and twin rear gas-charged shock absorbers as the suspension components. A single petal disc brake at the front and the back are provided for braking the RTR 180. It also has another variant featuring dual-channel ABS unit with rear lift prevention.

The new colour theme will attract a premium of Rs 1000 over all the Apache RTR 160 and RTR 180 variants.
