TVS motors have been launching multiple new and updated products. Recently, the Jupiter 125 and the new Apache 310 were added to the arsenal.

Just like its older sibling the company now offers three riding modes in Apache 160 4V as well, being Urban, Sports and Rain. There are a new set of radial tyres and an updated instrument cluster as well. TVS also launched its new special edition of the bike. The details are given below for the same.
TVS RTR 160R Special Edition
The special edition comes with a new paint scheme of matt black colour complemented with red highlights all over the body. All matte black with red alloy and details, the bike looks even sportier. The top trim of the bike shares the same TVS SmartXonnect Bluetooth instrument cluster just like its 200cc sibling.

The standard RTR 160 4V comes in three colour options: Racing Red, Metallic Blue, and Knight Black.

The 159.7cc, single-cylinder engine now produces 17.39 bhp of maximum power and a peak torque of 14.73 Nm. The transmission duties are still done by the same 5-speed manual gearbox. There is no change in the suspension i.e. telescopic forks at the front and a mono-shock at the rear.
Adding to TVS, the Special edition also offers GTT (Glide Through Traffic) for a smooth low-speed ride and avoiding the hiccups, a one-touch start and a wave bite ignition key.
