TVS has launched an all-blacked version of the Apache RTR 160 in India, called the Blaze of Black Dark Edition. Price-wise, the new version ranges from Rs 1.20 lakh (for the Apache RTR 160 2V Black Edition) to Rs 1.25 lakh (for the Apache RTR 160 4V Black Edition). Both prices are ex-showroom. As the name implies, the Black Edition features blacked-out styling elements, including a fuel tank with a black TVS Apache stallion logo and an exhaust. Besides, TVS has also slapped Apache and RTR 160 4V stickers on the side panels and tail, respectively. Other than that, the Black Edition remains the same as the base variant of the Apache RTR 160, which gets a drum brake at the rear but misses out on Bluetooth connectivity.

TVS Apache RTR 160 Black Editions: Engine

The Apache RTR 160 2V Black Edition draws power from the familiar 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with two valves. In Sport mode, the engine pushes out 15.8bhp at 8,750rpm and 13.85Nm of peak torque at 7,000rpm. However, Rain and Urban modes reduce these output numbers to 13.14bhp at 8,000rpm and 12.7Nm at 6,500rpm. 

Meanwhile, the Apache RTR 160 4V Black Edition uses a 159.7cc single-cylinder air-cooled engine with four valves. The engine develops 17.35bhp at 9,250rpm and 14.73Nm of peak torque. It gets the same riding modes as the RTR 160 2V. Transmission duties on both bikes are taken care of by a five-speed gearbox.

Apart from three riding modes, the Black Editions continue to offer a front disc-rear drum brake setup, Glide Through Technology (GTT), all-LED lighting, and a TVS SmartXonnect system with voice assistance. A digital instrument cluster is also available, but it does not support Bluetooth. 

In terms of market competition, the TVS Apache RTR 160 range rivals the Hero Xtreme 160R, Bajaj Pulsar NS160, and Yamaha FZS-FI.
