TVS Auto Bangladesh officially launches TVS Apache RTR160 in Bangladesh. The launching program took place at Bangabandhu International Conference Center. The program was attended by higher officials of TVS Auto Bangladesh & BikeBD.
Apache RTR is the 2nd most sold 150 cc motorcycles in Bangladesh after Bajaj Pulsar 150 (Dtsi). As per their data there are 150,000 units of RTR on the roads of Bangladesh. The bike gained popularity due to its sharp looks, raw acceleration & most important of all it is one of the best fuel efficient 150cc motorcycle in the market in its segment.
For the people who have doubts about the new engine then we can give some rough idea about the difference between the two bikes. Apache RTR150 has a square engine where the size of both BORE & STROKE are same. But in the new Apache RTR160 engine the BORE is wider. RTR150 comes with quiet square shape of cylinder while RTR160 has over square engine.
In terms of design frame is exactly the same as Apache RTR150. The major difference is the engine. As now the new engine is 160cc & it produces 15.2 BHP & 13.1 NM of Torque. They say that the new bike will have a 0-60 kmph time of 4.8 seconds.
The new bike still weighs 137 kg & has 90 front specification tyre & 110 specification rear tyre. The tyres are tubeless & the wheels have alloy wheels. The bike carries a 270 mm petal disc brake up front followed by 130 mm rear drum brake.
During the Launch TVS Apache RTR160 in Bangladesh they announced a price of 177,900 BDT ( single disc) & the colour options which they will have are matte black, matte red & matte blue . During the event of TVS Auto Bangladesh Officially Launches TVS Apache RTR160 in Bangladesh they handed over the key of a RTR160 to BikeBD for testing purpose. After testing it we will publish a detail review about the motorcycle in our website.
