The first bike of my life was a TVS Victor GLX 125cc. It was my father’s bike. It was a bike of good quality. Honestly, everyone’s bike works differently. I’m no exception. I saw my father riding bikes from a very young age. My love for bikes started from there.

I like to travel, and I like bikes better than anything. I like sportbikes on a budget. Those are the reason for my interest in this bike.

I already had confidence in TVS bikes. I like all TVS bikes. When they released the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Dual Disc I fell in love with its appearance. As soon as I took a test ride of the bike, I decided that it is for me.

The day before I went to buy a bike, I came to see my favorite bike TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Dual Disc. I couldn’t help but think of the moment I would be able to own the bike. That was one of the longest nights of my life. I bought my favorite bike on 19/02/2019. I cannot express the feeling in words when I first swung my leg over the bike.

I really liked my first ride with the bike. My bike is very dear to me. Riding is my passion. I mostly ride for business and for traveling. I am confident in the braking of my bike. Hence I can ride the bike fearlessly.

So far I have serviced my bike 10 times. Every time I got my bike serviced from TVS’s service center. TVS makes sure every small problem is solved. TVS company provides quite a few free services. After completing the free services, I only had to pay 450 BDT for every service.

Before 2500, km I got a mileage of 30 km per liter. After 2500 km, I got a mileage of 32-34 km per liter. I use the SPX 1200 ml 10w30 full synthetic as my engine oil.

I take great care of my bike. I wash my bike once every week. If there is any problem with the bike’s chain and clutch after every bike wash, we make sure to solve it. I changed the air filter after 4000/5000 km. And I change the engine oil filter every time I change the engine oil. I also service my bike every 2-3 months.

I changed the front and rear brakes of my bike. I also changed the chain sprocket and spark plug after running 19,000+ kilometers. I have changed the air filter 4 times till now. So far I haven’t made any modifications to the engine of the bike. I got a maximum speed of 130 kmph.

Some bad aspects of TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Dual Disc bike –

  • Low powered headlights
  • Low mileage
  • The low grip of the tires

The exhaust gave up after 5,000 km. However, I got a change from the company when I claimed for it. I traveled from Dhaka to Cox’s Bazar with the Apache RTR 160 4V bike and back. Which will be about 800 kilometers. This is the longest tour I have ever done on my bike. This bike did not disappoint me at all. The bike is extremely comfortable. I didn’t feel any problems while riding the bike. This trip has given me a lot of joy.

I really like the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V Dual Disc bike. Its performance is very good and the braking is extraordinary. The light of the bike is comparatively not adequate. I think this bike will be better if these problems were solved.  Thank you!
