Apache 160 3: The rear end and details

Apache 160 brake pedal

Here's more TVS Apache 160 details then. Check out the
forged brake lever. Pretty eh?

Apache 160 grab rail and racing stripe
That's the new grab rail. Notice the racing stripe (black). It runs from the tail lamp, up the tank and right down to the tip of the front fender... did you notice it on the tacho dial face?
Apache 160 rear view mirrorThat's the shapely new mirror. I thought it was quite effective, but I have feeling that's not going to be the popular opinion once the bike comes out...

Apache 160 brake lightAnd that's the full tail light. The red bit is actually the reflector and the white part is the light. It houses two 'A' shaped LED clusters that're really, really bright.
Oh, and the bike is fully called the TVS Apache RTR 160. More later...

You've noticed the rather heavy watermarking, I presume... I will hold forth on that bit a bit later.

Woah.. I understand the need for watermarking... but I for one think that the watermark should NOT actually obstruct the picture... Like the pic of that rear grab rails was not at all clear... NExt time tone down on your photoshop skills a bit..

Nywz I think TVS have got a killer up their sleves... Ofcourse it's not gonna make me cancel my p200 booking but still... Hopefully it doesnt end up a package like the cbzx which looks good in parts but doesnt gel well together.

well a almost ditto copy of the CBZ X-treme
i guess the TVS guys hav got a spy in the Hero Honda RnD dept so that they get the HH designs easily

The WORLD is talking about you friend! Oh yes... Everybody now wants to know who rearset is.. rearset this..rearset that.. and hey somebody told me rearset is an auto journo..really? And there'r your APACHE pictures all over the net and like you said, the link is there, and so is the picture,so why would somebody want to come to your site? I think you'd have done better to sell those pictures to some auto mag for a tidy sum.. All said, thanks for the sneak peek! You rock!

the sneak peak looks liek a stunner.. 'RTR 160' :-) may teh tribe increase, and add RTR 250, RTR 400 ...... Thnx for xclusive pics.

@Srikant-da 1 n only:

Two mistakes
1. The Apache RTR 160 and CBZ Xtreme are no way identical looking try as hard you can to spot the similarity.
2. HH dosen't have something like
R & D.

the tail reminds me of the bajaj wave,for some reason.the racing stripes seem to have been inspired by the,yet to belaunched,yamaha gladiator165.

hey i saw rtr 160 it looked like a baby of XTREME.people are talking bout apache.ITS copy of THE PULSAR(DIGITAL METER) AND CBZXTREME (TAIL LIGHTS).BUT I swear APACHE CANT BREAK XTREMES MARKET IF IT BREAKS IT WOULD BE ONLY 5-15 PERCENTAGE.IT IS TOO SAMLL FOR TALL PEOPLES AND IT IS NOT STYLISH YET.TVS BIKES ALSO NEEDS MORE MAINTAINENCE.AND TERE R CHEP CHANGES LIKE THE MIRRORS AND SOME CHANGES IN THE TANK AND TAIL LIGHT IS THE WORST IN THE APACHE 160 RTR

APACHE 160 RTR IT LEAVES PULSAR 150 CBZ X-TREME BIKES FAR BEHIND. ITS NOT LIKE PULSAR OR CBZ XTREME, ITS MUCH MUCH BETTER. THOSE WHO DARE TO RACE, HAVE A GUT FEEL TO DRIVE, THEY WILL DEFINATELY GO FOR IT. PEOPLE WILL DEFINATELY FEEL JEALOUS, WHEN YOU GO AHEAD AND SAY ITS APACHE. IT WILL DEFINATELY MAKE HIS OWN MARKET OF APACHE 160. TVS HAS GIVEN THE EXTRA DOSE. LOVE APACHE.
