Is TVS Apache RTR 160 best for newbies?

The TVS Apache RTR 160 is one of the best motorbikes for first-time with little riding experience, and it has served as a stepping stone into the entry-level performance segment of the Indian market. This entry-level performance motorcycle has been upgraded for 2023 by TVS Motor Company, and the most recent version offers new features and revised looks.
The Apache RTR 160 has a new headlight design that includes twin LED DRLs and an LED arrangement. A split-style pillion grabrail, an engine cowl, a boldly patterned fuel tank with a 3D logo on the shrouds, a black visor, a body-coloured headlight cowl, and other stylistic elements are still present. The package's sportiness is further enhanced by the carbon-fibre texture on the side and rear panels.

A completely digital instrument cluster resembling the one on the Apache RTR 160 4V replaces the semi-digital configuration in the cockpit of the RTR 160. Bluetooth connectivity is also included in the most advanced version. The switchgear functions properly, and the paint quality is excellent
Engine and Gearbox
The TVS Apache RTR 160 is powered by a powerful 159.7cc single-cylinder, 2-valve SOHC air-cooled engine that produces 13.85Nm of torque and 16.04PS of power when combined with a slick 5-speed gearbox.
The fully digital instrument console of the RTR 160 2V, which features TVS's SmartXonnect technology along with Bluetooth connectivity, is impressive. Voice Assist is even available in the top variant. Turn-by-turn navigation, a gear position and shift indication, phone and SMS notifications, race telemetry, and a lap timer are just a few of the many features that the console offers. It also features LED taillights and headlights.

The motorbike has two gas-charged shock absorbers and a telescopic fork in addition to its dual-cradle frame construction. The RTR 160 has a 130mm rear drum and a 270mm front petal disc for efficient braking. A 200mm rear petal disc is an optional feature.
