The 2024 model of the popular 160cc; the TVS Apache RTR 160 2V Refresh is launched in Nepal. The bike has been launched in Nepal with significant updates and features. The Apache lineup from TVS is a tough competitor in the daily driver category. The Apache RTR lineup consists of a lot of options from different engine configurations and styling.

The TVS Apache RTR 160 comes primarily in two design and performance options; 2V and 4V. The difference between the 2V and the 4V is the number of valves in the engine. The 2V has two fewer valves than the 4V. Due to this, the 4V generates slightly more power and torque than the 2V. Not just in terms of the performance, but design-wise too, the 2V and the 4V are completely different.

The 2024 RTR 160 2V has got new updates in terms of features which makes the 160cc option a tough competitor in the segment. It will compete against the Honda CB Hornet 160R, Suzuki Gixxer, Hero Xtreme 160R and Bajaj Pulsar NS 160 FI Dual ABS.

Let us see what the bike delivers in terms of specs.
