TVS Apache 160 ABS launched with a single-channel ABS. The company has decided to take forward the older 160 cc Apache. Though it was not surprising as the older generation Apache is still selling in good numbers which justify the addition of ABS. The Apache 160 4V also received a single-channel ABS in a bid to keep the prices lower when compared to a dual-channel unit. There is an increase of Rs 6,250 over the non-ABS variant.
