The big change is electronic fuel injection. The older RTR had a carburetted engine, while the RTR FI will have electronic fuel injection, with all its attendant benefits. Better power delivery, slightly better fuel efficiency Pricing is a bit if a disappointment – Rs 7000 more than the carburetted RTR 160. The displacement is 159.7cc from a fuel injected single cylinder motor.The Apache RTR FI produces 15.76 bhp at 8500 RPM, good enough for a top speed of 120 kmph. That is some 0.5 bhp more than the older RTR. Maximum torque is 13.1Nm at 6500rpm.

There is an optional rear disk brake available now for better stopping power.That, and the slightly different graphics and the engine cowl below are the only visual differences. The Apache RTR FI has an innovative digital dash though can be used to keep track of your 0-60 kmph timings as well as top speeds achieved.

TVS Motor is counting on the Apache RTR FI to add another 500-1000 units to its current sales volume. The ex-showroom price of the TVS Apache RTR FI 160 will be Rs 64,990 in New Delhi. We have heard reports that it will cost much higher in Mumbai and Chennai – so the only way to find out is to go meet your local TVS dealer. The new Apache RTR FI motorcycles should have reached all dealers by now. At this moment, there is no further information on the RTR FI.
