SPIED: BS-VI compliant 2020 TVS Apache 160 – better looking, more muscular?

In 2016, TVS Motor Company unveiled the second-generation Apache, which is the second model in its Apache RTR 4V Series line-up after the Apache RTR. Now Apache RTR 4V Series family is next in line to receive its mid-life update.


The spy photographers have snapped the spy pictures of the 2020 TVS Apache 160 that has been facelifted, this prototype unit was spotted in a showroom on display as well as testing with minimal camouflages. In one of the spyshot from Rushlane, the bike is seen in a showroom-ready form and thus we expect it to launch sooner than expected.

The updated front fascia includes bigger LED pilot lamps and a LED headlight setup with aggressive styling. The instrument cluster and turn-indicators appear to be mounted directly to the dual-tone fairing. Also, the seats now come with dual-tone finish for a more premium look.


Apart from these, no other cosmetic changes are evident. It sports a same muscular fuel tank with an asymmetrically mounted filler cap, a single-piece step-up seat, a boxy exhaust design, an engine cowl and a split-style pillion grab rail.

The mechanicals are expected to remain identical to the current model, however, the existing range of engines will be upgraded to conform to the stricter, BS-VI emission norms on the new 2020 TVS Apache Models. The BS-VI compliant Apache RTR 160 4V won’t be available in a carburettor version.
