The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V has been the best motorcycle in its class and boasts the best engine specifications. However, with the competition rising in the segment, the Hosur-based two-wheeler maker is looking to up the ante with a performance-oriented smallest 4V Apache.

TVS Motor Company has filed for a trademark for two names - TVS RP Race Performance and TVS Apache RTR 165 RP. Both of these trademarks were filed on the 16th of August and are awaiting further evaluation results.

Once under production, the expected TVS Apache RTR 165 4V RP (not the official name) could bear a retuned engine to produce up to 1.5 bhp more with just a slight bump in engine displacement. If that’s true, the performance-oriented Apache could produce around 19 bhp and 15.5 Nm torque, slightly better than the Yamaha MT-15 on paper.

Apart from that, there could be changes in the ergonomics, much like the Race Kit. This kit could include clip-on handlebars in place of the standard single-piece handlebar, more rear-set footpegs and race graphics. Apart from that, it could even get the adjustable kit from the RTR 200 4V, making it much more customisable than it is now.

The 2021 TVS Apache RTR 160 4V is powered by a 159.7cc engine, making around 17.63 horsepower and 14.73 Nm torque. These figures are already the best in the 160cc naked street segment. Once the filing process is complete, we could see the sportiest bike of its class become sportier.
