How Much Faster Is The Yamaha MT-15 V2 Than The TVS Apache RTR 160 4V?

Not much to be honest, that is if you are going to stick to the city

One look at the headline and you might be wondering, “Why is Team Zigwheels making this performance numbers comparison so obvious?” But if you were to skip that question and actually think about how close can the TVS Apache RTR 160 4V run the Yamaha MT-15 V2, the answer is quite close. And some of the results, we weren’t truly expecting them to turn out like this.

Acceleration

0-60kmph4.95 seconds5.34 seconds
0-80kmph8.50 seconds9.34 seconds
0-100kmph14.28 seconds17.15 seconds

Like we mentioned in the intro, the gap between the two bikes is apparent but not as much within city limits. It is only when you start exploring the highway and ride spiritedly does the MT’s 155cc liquid-cooled mill show off what it can do. You just need to have the VVA sign pop up and the Yammie will be happy.

40-80kmph in 4th gear7.54 seconds9.38 seconds

Incredibly, the MT is quite a tractable motorcycle. Sauntering in the city is no biggie for the MT as you can literally just leave it in fifth to do your city bidding. The RTR needs a bit of working the gearbox. But hey, it has a nicer soundtrack to accompany.

Braking

Braking has never been the Apache’s strong suit and it shows here. The MT stops considerably better than the RTR 160 4V, with better lever feel to accompany. Sadly, both bikes miss out on dual-channel ABS which is a big miss in our books for such competent motorcycles.

It is quite commendable that despite dishing out more power, the MT-15’s liquid-cooled mill is able to deliver nearabout the same fuel efficiency scores in both the city and highway. The extra fuel carrying capabilities of the RTR means fuel stops will not be as frequent, a great way to extend your highway stints.
