Going for Apache RTR 160

Recommended Posts

The choice available today (though not on par with the world scene) is amazing. When I was in college, you had the 4 100ccs along with the Yezdis and the Bullet.

Not complaining though, since the Yamaha RX100 was one of the best!!

Hey good option....

But doesnt the bike rattle after a certain speed... my friend bought one he does complain about that... but hey it puts a smile on his face

Amazing handling as well a good plus from TVS...

hey man..... u go for rtr only if u  r  a  fan of rtr..

it is good in terms of refinement,power delivery,top speed......... but u r not going to ride on a race track...... think before  u buy....

some of the problems of rtr

it is cramped ,if u r tall go for another bike

ride quality is poor compared to hunk, pulsar....

gear box will be smooth at the time of buying.....later on becomes hard to put it on the slot

less mileage ....avg u will get 35 kmpl in real world condition.

on paper & test report they say 55-60kmpl.......dont believe.....

up to 80 km/hr  it has same accleration time as that of hunk

so if u r riding in city go hunk ,its also more flickable in the city

and     resale............

i think hunk is good for u : its only a recomendation .....note that i am not a HH  fan ; it will be a hassle free bike...

don't judge a product by looking at the  engine sound

pulsar exhaust note is more better than RTR'S ......

well each to his own

the points of the RTR are true cramped, mileage, and the gearshifts

i would go for the RTR because i rode a friends and well i loved riding it... simply for that reason i would buy it... but do note what comes with the bike

exhaust note... music to each ones ears

first impresson of a bike may be great ..but..

but we r going to ride it for some .....min 2-3 years

that also an aspect

first ride may be great......

but we should consider its overall performance...during a course of time

if its reliable then okee

after buying a bike ,if we r wandering around the sevice centre  .........for its ......what u call performance...then ..........its ur decision

@yahamar15 do you own the bike !! My friend does the normal rtr and its quiet reliable no problems till now and the accleration response is still as good well even I say its cramped as I am 6'1'' but its perfect for 5'10'' .

I also like the RTR.But if you talk about engine notes,i think pulsar 200 is better(just my opinion).I wouldn't recommend hunk because it is not refined like unicorn even though they share the same engine.Also,i read somewhere that the hunk is 10kgs heavier than the RTR.Anyway,the final choice is yours.

For a minute I thought what happended to speed, but then i saw its nikhil.

Please this is a very old thread. Their are many more active threads on bikes as well where you can post your valuable comments. And not waste them where there is no use of it.
