2023 Apache 160 price is precariously close to the newer-gen sibling Apache 160 4V. The new model gets a plethora of updates and features…

TVS has officially launched two motorcycles today – the 2023 Apache 180 and 2023 Apache 160 – basically updates to the older-gen Apaches. We have discussed the 2023 Apache 180 in this article and here we will talk about the new 160 2v.

2023 Apache 160 Changes

The basic design and platform of the motorcycle has remained unchanged but it gets a big list of features that almost bring it at par with the newer generation Apaches. Here is a quick list..

  • New LED headlamp
  • New design LED tail lamp
  • X-ring chain
  • wider 120mm rear tyre
  • Full digital instrument cluster

Aside all the above, the new 160 comes with three ride modes – Sport, Urban and Rain. Another big bang feature addition is the SmartXonnect that enables Bluetooth connectivity and hence, a long list of additional information including turn by turn navigation. It also gets voice assist that is a first in segment offering.

2023 Apache 160

The Apache 160 continues with the same 159.7 cc 2-valve engine and churns 16.04 PS of peak power at 8750 rpm and 13.85 Nm of max torque at 7000 rpm. This means that power has seen a bump of 0.51 PS but comes 350 rpm later. On the other hand, torque is slightly down by 0.05 Nm. TVS also informs that it has managed to reduce the weight of the motorcycle by 2 kilos.

This means that TVS is charging a premium of Rs 4050 on the drum brake variant and Rs 4550 on the disc brake variant for all the added features.
