Despite carrying a rather long name, the TVS Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge performs just like its name - with an edge.
First released in 2007, the Apache RTR 160 has received a number of upgrades leading up to its current state. And in the five years that it’s been in existence, it’s chalked an impressive list of features that certainly bears noticing.
In terms of styling, the Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge was designed to reek of attitude, thanks in large part to the fluid racing stripes, the luminous rims, and the race crouch mirrors that epitomize its RTR racing pedigree. Smart-looking aluminum foot pegs also add a touch of class to the bike while the new look silencer canister makes a bold statement to anyone who sees it out on the road. The clip-on handlebars also allows you to be able to bank the bike better, allowing you to play with the curves like nobody’s business.
As far as the engine is concerned, the Apache RTR 160 Hyper Edge comes powered by a 4 stroke, 159.7 cc, single that produces 15.2 horsepower at 8,500 rpm and 13.1 Nm at 6,000 rpm. It may not look like much, but those numbers are more than enough to get you where you need to go in style.
